One of the great tragedies of existence is that men and women who spend a lifetime searching for power, wealth, pleasure, and for love, will hardly take a moment to examine the true nature of God’s existence.
A commitment to the truth, however, demands just such an examination. Richard E. Simmons III, in Remembering The Forgotten God, argues that to determine whether God is a reality or an illusion is the single most important decision in life. One must either accept that God is real or that God is an illusion –there can be no two ways about it. Over the centuries, the resolution of this fundamental issue has been the threshold decision leading to intellectual and spiritual maturity… a decision no less difficult today than it was two thousand years ago.
