Faith

God’s existence has nothing to do with “faith.” That almost sounds like heresy. But hear me out.
It is a fact that every building has a builder. No building has ever built itself. The building is absolute 100% scientific proof that there was a builder. You couldn’t want more proof that there was a builder, than to have the building in front of you. You don’t need faith to believe in the existence of a builder, all you need is eyes that can see and a brain that works.
Creation is 100 percent scientific proof that the Creator exists. It is impossible for nature to have made itself. I don’t need faith to believe that the Creator exists, all I need is eyes that can see and a brain that works. This is in keeping with Romans 1:20:
“For the invisible things of Him are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made…so that they are without excuse.”
So where does “faith” come in?
If I want to APPROACH the builder to do something for me, THEN I need to have faith (trust) in Him. The Bible says, “He that COMES to God must first believe that He exists and that He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek him, for without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Hebrews 11:6).
So you don’t need “faith” to believe in God’s existence. That’s axiomatic. But if you want to approach him, then you need to have faith or trust in Him. Without that, it is impossible to please Him. This is a basic principle of any relationship. I could not please you if I had no faith in you. That would be insulting to you because it means I think you are devious and not worth trusting. How much more should such thoughts be an insult to God?
