If there is the slightest possibility of God existing and that He has sent His only begotten Son Jesus to be your savior from your transgressions, wouldn’t it be wise to investigate it for yourself?
If you had evidence beyond doubt that God exists as described in the Holy Bible and that He loves you and wants you to be in Heaven with Him forever, would you want to be in Heaven with Him too?

Albert Einstein and God

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Many atheists say that Einstein did not believe in God.

Here is a full quote by Albert Einstein taken directly from a publication by Princeton University:
“In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.” The Expanded Quotable Einstein, Princeton University, page 214

Here now is Richard Dawkins doing exactly what made Einstein angry–making out that Einstein was an atheist, when in truth, he was no fool:

“Einstein sometimes invoked the name of God (and he is not the only atheistic scientist to do so), inviting misunderstanding by supernaturalists eager to misunderstand and claim so illustrious a thinker as their own.” The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins http://richarddawkins.net/firstChapter,101
Below are more quotes from Einstein about his belief in God. Notice that although he didn’t believe in a personal God (as revealed in the Bible), he wanted to know “His” thoughts, referred to God as “He,” acknowledged that He reveals “Himself,” asks how God “created this world.” In other words, it is clear that he wasn’t a pantheist (that God and nature are one in the same–see his below quote: “I’m not an atheist and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist.”):
“I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.”
“Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”
“I’m not an atheist and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangements of the books, but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.”
“My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.”
“Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.”
“When the solution is simple, God is answering.”
“God does not play dice with the universe.”
“God is subtle but he is not malicious.”
