Full Text of Gospel Tract
I know that you think that modern science has proven that God doesnot exist. That evolution is true and that your existence on this earth is just the result of the random chance interaction of cosmic matter over the course of millions and even billions of years. And I know that you think that when you die you will just pass out of existence, that your life will be over, and that your death will be the end of things for you. But what if you are wrong? What if none of this really is true? What if God really does exist? And what if when you physically die your life really does not end, but you must face the God that you have been denying?
Think About It
The tendency for you right now is to scoff at the idea that you are wrong. However, though you are prone to do so, it's a foolish thing to do. If you will just take a moment to honestly think about it, you know that this is an issue about which you cannot afford to be wrong. You can afford to be wrong about some things, but not about this. For if you are wrong about this, the eternal destiny and welfare of your being will be far different than you think. In fact it will be disastrous and horrifying. And the possibility of that ought to make you very uncomfortable, to say the least.
Therefore, the only honest and sensible thing for you to do is to make sure beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are absolutely right. You need to know that you personally are in possession of clearly undeniable and irrefutable proof that God does not exist, and that you will not face Him after you die. Anything less than this is of no real comfort to you. For you know that the possibility would still exist that you might be wrong.
It Cannot Be Done
Now at this point I know something else about you. And that is that you cannot produce any clear undeniable and irrefutable proof. At best all you can do is choose to believe that God does not exist. But neither you, nor any scientist or philosopher, can actually prove that God does not exist. And not only will any honest scientist or philosopher tell you that, but there are plenty who fully believe in God's existence. They know full well that modern science has not proven, and cannot prove, that God does not exist. They are at least being honest with that fact.
Are You Being Honest?
If you are honest with yourself, and with the inherent limitations of science, you also know that you cannot prove that God does not exist. Therefore you are now faced with the fact that the strong possibility exists that you are wrong. Moreover you are now also faced with the real possibility that you will have to face God when you die.
But you know, that's not all you are confronted with. In truth you are also confronted with another disturbing matter. And that is this: That God Himself has already given to you clearly undeniable and irrefutable proof that He actually does exist _ but you rejected it. Oh yes He has; and unfortunately, Oh yes you did.
Long before you ever chose to disbelieve in God's existence, He Himself personally confronted you with the reality of Himself. And this He did just like He says He did in His written word, The Bible. As He has the Apostle Paul say,…
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (Romans 1:18-20)
The truth is that God Himself has already personally left you "without excuse" regarding the reality of His existence. His "eternal power and Godhead" is "clearly seen" from the fact of creation. Creation demands a Creator, and you know that full well. No philosophical argument can ever get around that. God knows that, and in your heart-of-hearts so do you. You have simply chosen not to believe it. And in so doing you have been holding the truth in unrighteousness, just as God says.
My friend these few words, along with the verses from The Bible that you have just read, are confronting you once again with the fundamental light of God-consciousness. How are you going to respond this time? Before you answer, take one more look at the beginning of verse 18 just quoted.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven… (Romans 1:18a)
Do you notice the issue of God declaring that His "wrath" is against you? Once again if this is true and you are wrong, then when you die you will face the wrath, anger, and condemning judgment of the God whom you have spurned. And you will have no excuse whatsoever to offer. Without question, you absolutely cannot afford to be wrong. — K. R. Blades
