ROTHENBURGER – Proof of God’s existence is on the streets of Kamloops

(Image: File photo)

ALL MY LIFE, I’ve been skeptical about the existence of a supreme being. I was raised an atheist, but drifted toward agnosticism quite some time ago.

I dabbled in studying a bit of religion while in university and it convinced me I just don’t have the wherewithal, nor the blind faith, to get it. (Believe it or not, I still have the textbooks, two volumes of “Christendom, A Short History of Christianity and its Impact on Western Civilization.”)

But in the past couple of weeks, I’ve become convinced there must be a God, or some higher level of intelligence or, at least, a higher level of control. A supreme CEO, perhaps.

    Amen to that Brother
    I think you are right
    Glory be I would not have seen the
    light had it not been for you !

  2. I watch as you do Mel…… is beyond scary. I actually had to yell at a young girl sitting beside me at a red light in our cars, her music was so loud she couldn’t hear a damn thing as she was texting on her phone!!!!!! I was trying to tell her to get off the phone because she was not aware of the cop approaching her car then I thought….to hell with her, she needs a ticket!!!!!!! The light changed, I drove away…..she didn’t :/

    Mel I am glad you came to the realisation that there is a God as u put it “CEO”. There is also an instruction manual if u care to read it. In the section call Romans 1:18-25 it says:
    18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
    24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonour their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
    Hebrews2:3&4a3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, 4 God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles,
    I do hope u look into the loving and caring God to those who have accepted His teaching.

  4. God didn’t create us to be in a hurry…that came after the first drive-thru.
