Who needs God? Perhaps nobody. Perhaps everybody. Perhaps we should talk about it.

If you don’t believe in God or are on the verge of giving up on God, it’s probably not because of a thoroughly researched rational conclusion. It’s probably more personal than that. Atheism hasn’t become more appealing. Your version of theism has lost its appeal or doesn’t seem real. Stick around in the weeks to come as we continue to explore the question, Who needs God?

Faith in No Testament gods leads to unmet expectations, childhood explanations, ill-informed interpretations, and blatant manipulation. We invent these “gods” based on expectations we put on the true God. That’s an irrational way to determine if God is real.

Before the Old and New Testaments were combined and called the Bible, the debate about the Christian faith centered on an event, not a book. We believe Jesus rose from the dead, but not because the Bible says so. We believe because of the testimony of eyewitnesses who gave up everything – including their lives – because of their confidence in Jesus.

If you could see God just once, wouldn’t it settle your fears, give you assurance, and motivate you to hold firm in your faith? If you want to know what God says, listen to Jesus. If you want to know what God is up to, watch Jesus. If you want to have a closer relationship with God, follow Jesus.

If anyone had a reason to stop believing in God because of injustice, it was Jesus. The man who stands at the center of all we believe was treated extraordinarily unfairly. The man who taught us all people have inherent value was executed. The man whose definitions of good and just informs your definitions of good and just was treated unjustly. Evil and injustice are not arguments against the existence of God. They are evidence of our need for his mercy and grace.
