BELIEF IN GOD: A Natural Instinct


BELIEF in God is as natural as any instinct can be. An atheist asked Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq

how could he convince him about the existence of God. Coming to know that the man had

gone several times on sea voyages, Imam asked him “Have you ever been caught in a

fierce storm in middle of nowhere, your rudder gone, your sails torn away, trying

desperately to keep your boat afloat?” The answer was `Yes’. Then Imam asked: “And

sometimes perhaps even that leaking boat went down leaving you exhausted and helpless

on the mercy of raging waves?” The answer was again `Yes’.

Then Imam asked: “Was not there, in all that black despair, a glimmer of hope in your

heart that some unnamed and unknown power could still save you?” When he agreed,

Imam said: “That power is God.”

That atheist was intelligent. He knew the truth when he saw it.

    Hey. I wanted to drop you a brief note to verbalize my thanks. I’ve been following your website for few days and have picked up a heap of good tips and enjoyed the way you’ve built your website. I’m undertaking to make my own weblog but I think its too general and I would like to concentrate more on specific topics.
