Clearly Seen Invisibility
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, because what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened.
Er….what?? Apparently the Christian god has made his existence clear to us, but how?
“For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made.”
Right, so these ‘invisible attributes’ are ‘clearly seen’? Surely that would mean they’re no longer invisible? Or is the writer trying to say that they are ‘clearly seen’ by those who already believe in them? Still invisible, but not to those who can imagine them into visibility? Basically ‘You must believe in them because they are there, even though they’re invisible, but you’ll be able to imagine you can see them once you’ve accepted that they are there…..or you’ll make YHWH angry!’
Seriously, Christians, if you read this and don’t think it’s meaningless circular gibberish, lacking any profundity, then you’re a lost cause – logic and you are not friends.
