On a scale of one to ten, one being least certain and ten being the most certain, how would you rate your own certainty as to whether a God exists? Do you agree that to label yourself as a ten would be saying that you undoubtedly know that a God exists? In other words, you would be acknowledging this as an undisputed fact within your life and in the world? If you have rated yourself anywhere below ten, then you have indicated something very important about this belief. You have indicated that you cannot acknowledge this as an undisputed fact! Not for yourself, and most honest believers admit the very same thing.
What this ultimately becomes is an admission that your present knowledge in this world does not connect to having knowledge of a God. You have a belief in a God but this is clearly differentiated from knowledge by your own admission. Since this is the case then this knowledge gap should actually default you to a position of uncertainty. This is because we are speaking in terms of knowledge, not confidence or conviction. Do you see what I mean?
If you agree that you are in fact not certain that a God exists then does this not justify you to say that you lack knowledge about a God? Knowledge that you do not presently possess? If you agree with everything stated above, then please take time to consider your own label based upon what you know. Thank you for your time!
One more question to ponder in your own down time. Does the Bible support Agnostic Theism? Many passages would seem to indicate that a believer should speak from a position of knowledge. What do you think?
