I was talking with some individuals not long ago and we were talking about why people choose to not believe in God. In my experience, I have found three common answers to that question:
1.Intellectual pride.I don’t want to believe in God. If I believe in Him, then this implies that I owe my existence to Him and that I am responsible to Someone.
2.Moral freedom.Aldus Huxley, author of Brave New Worldand other humanistic, atheistic books, has shared (observation by Feldhahn, The Veritas Conflict, 252). “It’s not as if I have all these great intellectual arguments for not believing in God or all these reasons why Christianity is wrong; I just want to have sex with my girlfriend.”
3.Personal hurt. God didn’t come through for me. He has let me down. Life has been a hoax. Where was God back when I was 13 or 6? Why didn’t God hold my family together? Why did He allow that idiot to do what he did to me? How could God not do something? I’ve served you faithfully and reached many for you and you can’t help me now?
