The Choice is God or Nothing
Save yourself the trouble of exploring the many philosophies that attempt to explain existence and find meaning in it apart from God. Meaning simply cannot be found apart from Him. Either God is the absolute (see blog #10) of the universe, or the universe is meaningless. Either God is the source of moral law (see blog #22), or morality is an illusion. Either God is the source of reason, or everything is irrational. It’s as if we are all swept downstream in a swift river and must choose between climbing onto a rock and plunging over a waterfall. One option offers security and a solid grip on stable reality; the other ends in a tumbling fall into a void where nothing has meaning and nothing is true. The choice is God or nothing; we have no other alternatives.
