Day 1:  Going Where You Are Led

“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.” —G. K. Chesterton

An earnest seeker of the truth about God and his existence must be willing to let his journey and the process of truth discovery take him wherever it will.

Antony Flew, a well-known atheist from Oxford University, said that a time came when he decided to let the evidence for or against God’s existence take him wherever it led. As he investigated the Big Bang and the Fine-Tuned Universe theories, he came to believe that God truly did exist.

He said, “I now believe there is a God . . . I now think it [the evidence] does point to a creative Intelligence almost entirely because of the DNA investigations. What I think the DNA material has done is that it has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements with which are needed to produce life, that intelligence must have been involved in getting these extraordinarily diverse elements to work together.” 

Sometimes in order to find the truth, we must be willing to accept that other possibilities outside our current belief system could be true. We often get in our own way. Make a decision to fight against your biases and follow the evidence—wherever it may lead.

Consider This:

  1. Do you find yourself more close-minded about some areas than others? Which ones? Why is that?
  2. What can you do to work against your own biases?

Take Action:

No matter where you are on your personal journey, make a commitment to stay open-minded. Reconsider Christianity as one potentially credible option among many. If you are interested, read Anthony Flew’s book There Is a God.
