Herman Bavinck – The Effort Involved In Unbelief

25 Mar

1854-1921. Dutch Reformed Theologian and Churchman. Professor at Free University in Amsterdam.

Belief in a personal God is both natural and normal; it arises in human consciousness spontaneously and universally. Unbelief requires enormous effort. There is no proof available to it.

    Amen… There is no “proof” available to unbelief! Only a man’s sinful unbelief. Btw, belief in God is surely so-called normal, even for sinful man, but saving belief is another story!
