Proving God's Existence

Last week Fr. Don had a fabulous post about how we as Christians can somehow be mired in the need to be apologists and to prove God exists; especially in those instances where the conversation turns emotional and heated.

In his very learned style, Fr. Don asks us to consider if it matters, and offers a different approach:

In the long run we point to God's existence and goodness better by how we live and act than by how we argue. Honing our arguments for God's existence is much less important than echoing God's love in what we do and say.

Differently said, and to take liberties with the old church stand-by:

They will know God's existence by our love
By our love
Yes, they'll know God's existence by our love
