FOR CERTAIN THERE IS A GOD
"I believe in one God…"
From: ON THE DIVINE LITURGY – VOL.2
by Bishop Augoustinos N. Kantiotes.
Dear readers, there are many subjects which people busily discuss, wherever they live and whatever their education, but the one topic above all others is that pertaining to Gods existence. People are never indifferent to this subject. Even though some may appear indifferent, there come moments in their lives when this matter sets them off. Is there a God, yes or no? If there is not, then everything is permissible, even the most heinous crimes. If He exists, however, then things are different, and everyone is responsible to the Creator for his actions.
God’s existence is bound together with the notion of divine justice, a justice that is free of the imperfections and weaknesses of human justice and is able to punish every crime and reward every virtue. This is what St. Paul means when he says: But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for He that cometh to God must believe that he is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him (Heb.11:6).
