(Psalms 14)The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.

5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.

7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Even the power to imagine is clear evidence that God is existent.

Can one imagine what has not crossed their mind? If not, where did it come from to cross your mind? The fact that you have imagined means it is very possible it can or it could have existed or it is still existing. Today we can witness much of the emergence of technology and much of this is dependent on the power to imagine and thereby create. You can't imagine what can't exist. And to imagine it doesn't mean it is existing for the first time. It is been there, you only took long to realize it is there and bring it into reality. Much of the human nature relies on imaginations. The only difference is that; there are those who imagine well and subsequently do good, the opposite is true. One imagines to steal and does so, another imagines not to and doesn't.

Who is responsible for what you have no power over, would you love to die? If not, why can't you stop it. Who has the power to stop it? Man has worked tireless to stop this monster "death" with no any slight success, why? Many other issues in this sense continue to give us much trouble, we will never manage them. God is there, only Him, the most powerful can manage them. Man has always been instrumental in taming much of the nature, however though, much of it still poses much resistance. There is surely someone who has power over what you can't control.

You will never know there is God if you do not believe in Him, your mind is awash with rebellion! However though, that does not take away His Power and Authority over you, that is why despite the fact that you are denying His existence, there is much that you can't change even if you wanted to.

I know of one man who persistently denied the existence of God, but when he lied on his death bed waiting for his departure, which of course he could have stopped if he had the power to, this is what he had to say, "it is easy to deny the existence of God until your day of death has approached"

Mark you, those who deny the existence of God are struggling to prove there point, of course with no success at all. Those of us who believe God is indeed existent are awash with immense evidence and much has proved our stand.


GOD bless

The question,is God imaginary, is basically the age old question, does God exist. It is merely stated differently to catch ones eye.

The "proofs" that are given to demonstrate Gods lack of existence demonstrate more of an ignorance of who God is and what He is about.

It is true you can't see, or touch him. (You can't see or touch dark matter either.) So how does one know? 

It's not my or any Christians responsibility to prove his existence. God reveals himself, Rom 1:20 and Psalm 19:1-4.

The real question, is the person asking really seeking the truth. The bible assures that if a person truly seeks God they will find him, Jeremiah 29;13.
And when one finds Him you have your own proof, that no one can take away.
