God Is Not My Imaginary Friend

Last night I heard something so sad. I said something about God to someone I know and just said, “I feel like God was speaking to me about…” and she said to me, “I quit believing in imaginary friends when I was a kid.” First, I was taken aback. I don’t think she realized how harsh her words sounded. Second, I was just stunned. I can’t imagine not believing in God. It’s not in my realm of possibilities that there is no God. I have seen, heard, felt God. I don’t understand. It broke my heart to hear someone say that. I am not someone who is going to scream at you or anything like that if you have differing beliefs than me, but I am sure going to pray for you. This person is young and does seem to think she knows everything about everything. So I am hoping that she grows up one day and realizes that she doesn’t know everything in the world. I know many people who are scientists who believe in God. I know doctors who believe in God. It’s not just me wanting an imaginary friend. It’s me needing to know the truth. I won’t preach to this person because the situation we know each other from is not appropriate but I will definitely pray for her. She really broke my heart with that statement.

If anyone is interested in hearing a story of an atheist who changed his beliefs, you can go watch Lee Strobel‘s story on Hulu. He wrote the book The Case for Christ. Initially he wrote the book to debunk the “myth” of Jesus being the Messiah and as he did research he began believing. http://www.hulu.com/watch/141396/case-for-christ
