If you have been a Christian very long, you have no doubt heard of Agnostics. And, most have heard a preacher or Bible teacher say that Agnostics are those people who say it is impossible to prove that there is or isn't a God. And many know very little else about them. Actually, the preceding statement is basically accurate. Their prime stand is that there is no way to prove one way or the other.
The only thing wrong with that is that the vast majority reject a belief in God and pretty much accept that there is none. In my view, that places them in the Atheist category but helps them avoid an argument about it.
Let's rationalize a minute. If it cannot be proven that there is not a God, and it cannot be proven that there is a God, what would be the safe approach? Just to say, "O.K., I can't prove there is a God, so I choose to just live it up and enjoy myself and take my chances of spending eternity in agonizing punishment". One would have to be insane to take that approach.
Many of the old time Agnostics were often referred to as Atheists, and for good reason. There are not too many who really became famous but there is Robert Ingersoll, Bertrand Russell, Charles Darwin, Francois Voltaire, and Thomas Huxley to name a few of the real biggies. Some have spent their life in trying to prove that you cannot prove that there is a God! Solid proof is difficult to produce in almost any undertaking. Many a man has been executed on sound but circumstantial evidence. Perhaps there is no absolute proof of the existance of God, but there is overwhelming evidence, enough to "prove beyond the shadow of a doubt" to any honest and open mind.
Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight:" We can know many things but it is not possible to know for a certainty, things we have only heard. God does not require us to know that Jesus is His son. He requires us to believe that. And considering the massive evidence surrounding this, I find no room for doubting. Please read as many of the following sources of information as you can in order to gain a closer insight of this satanic stronghold.
