You’re amazing, you really are. And you know how much I hate you for being the awesome, careless and fearless person you are. That’s because a part of me, sometimes, really wants to be you.
Now, the question behind this letter is very simple: Is there a God ?
I always said yes and you always say you’re somewhere in between believing and not believing in -and I’m quoting- a power out there that is ruling the Universe we live in. An invisible power responsible for all that we call existence.
You’re smart. Actually, you’re one of the smartest people I know and I’m sure that by now, you’ve already noticed the highlighted invisible in the previous paragraph
God is of necessity invisible. I mean, there’s a planet called Mars, a Macbook on my lap and a cup of tea right next to me and in that sense, there is no God because I can’t see God. Can I prove that God exists? I don’t think so; at least not in the way I can prove that I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII ringing right as I’m writing this article!
You asked me the same question about a year ago and I tried to answer it with every single piece of argument I had on my little brain… But you weren’t impressed, you never are anyway. However, you kept on listening to everything I had to say and even gave me a undetermined amount of time to think this through.
Well, guess what? I still am unable to answer your question but today I’m able to look you straight in the eyes and tell you that I’m confident that God can prove his own existence, he just doesn’t seem to be inclined to do so. At least not in the present moment. So, today, I decided to stop trying to persuade you to believe me or believe in God. You’re just fine the way you are even with your annoying jokes and your beautiful straight black hair that most moroccans haven’t been blessed with.
God exists, dear friend, and certainly not because I say so but because I know that if I try my level best not to believe in God, I’ll be lying to myself.
Is that a persuasive argument? Probably not for you. But it is for me. In fact, it is the most persuasive argument: I know there is a God because I know there is a God.
How do I know that there is a God out there?
Easy: I know God through prayer.
You should try it sometime. Pray to God and see if anything happens. Ask God all the questions that not me or anyone has ever been able to answer. What do you have to lose anyway? Do it even if you ask skeptically.
Dear friend, I love you, I really do -In a very friendly way. And that’s why I’m suggesting you experience God one last time. There are no guarantees, I know, but there’s the possibility, as unlikely as it seems, to experience God.
I mean, after all, we only still have 6 days until the end of the Mayan Calendar. And guess what? I’m a muslim and I believe that all muslims will eventually go to Heaven. In fact, any believer of any religion believes s/he has a ticket to Heaven… Eventually, maybe!
Anyway, you’re still awesome to me.
