I think it is as if, from God’s perspective you and he are alone in this world. He has the time for you whether or not you are conscious of him. It is very easy to be unaware of God because we are born into a world that is alienated from him. To be “conscious” means “to know,” and the similar word “conscience” means to “know guilt.”

Our con-science can trick our consciousness so that we are unaware of God, and so that we try to avoid the thought of him. Our conscience stands between us and God, magnifying the differences between us, telling us only distorted versions of the truth. We begin to try to find other, more “comfortable” explanations for life.

I once believed the theory of Evolution. Now I know it’s only a modern myth that provides a temporary escape from personal responsibility. The theory creates a mosaic from billions of puzzle pieces of life, forcing them together in ways to roughly fit our picture of “NoGod.”

Most of those who teach Evolution are responsible people, having “learned” the theory from generations of respectable “teachers.” Ultimately, the theory offers no real hope for man. Many try to mix the theory with Christianity, but evolution is truly the cornerstone of Atheism. It would be bad enough if evolution were true. Instead, it is one of the most intelligently crafted deceptions ever to exist. It’s no wonder that so many young people are drifting into atheism.

God is not the oppressor, but man has portrayed him that way. Mankind has built a wall that becomes a cross to God, and God meets us there where he is crucified. On his part, it is an attempt to reach us, to break down our violent rejection of him. He stands on a nail, and reaches out for us, as far as our nails in his hands will let him reach.

His crown is of thorns, and “the best of us is a briar.” Our rejection of his loving forgiveness can result in a final and total alienation. This is happening even now, and people don’t know that God is dying, trying to save us from this terrible separation.

God will live on for the sake of those that he can finally touch. He will live, and we will live, and in an eternity beyond the reach of time, all tears will be wiped away, and nothing will stand between us and God. Our conscience will become clear, and we will see God as he really is (1st. Corinthians 13:12). We will become fully conscious for the first time.
