My wife and I have been watching through the newest remake of Battlestar Galactica.  While that admission alone almost certainly propels the two of us into the "Geek" status, something has just recently crossed my mind about the show and our own humanity.

 

As the characters fight this war between humans and human-like robots, one gets a real sense - almost feels sorry for - these robotic armies that are merely fighting for survival.  Though they are sophisticated enough to look human, sound human, feel human emotions, eat and drink like humans, the robots realize that they are simply not human.  Their desire, as it turns out, is to be that very thing with which they are fighting.  They want to be real.

 

Most of us on this forum spend our days debating with and witnessing to people who deny the very existence of God.  Our evolutionary discussions are targeted towards those who have shut their eyes so tightly against God that they've forgotten what it is they're ignoring in the first place.  We deal, typically, with athiests.

 

Yet there is another world of people out there.  These people have not been turned off to "religion," or "god."  They are seeking and searching.  They recognize that, though they live on this planet, though they look like everyone else, though they eat, sleep, and breathe like humans, they are empty inside.  They recognize the emptiness, and they're searching for the answer - that Something to fill the void.

 

Lord, as we continue to uphold Your Word, as we continue to argue and prove Your existence to those who outright deny You, may we not close our eyes to those who recognize their own spiritual poverty, but do not know how to fix it.  May our ears be open to their unspoken cries for mercy, and may our words be quick to display Your grace.

I must be honest, Ron, I don't readily see the connection between Franklin's quote and the conversation.  Would you mind clarifying a little bit?

Knowledge of and in all areas of our created  universe can be summed up in a little used quote:

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.                                                              Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." -- Benjamin Franklin 

YEC, Trinitarian, Christ as Creator Is the base I comment from, God Bless Any an All.   Ron

I sometimes find that I, myself, find a "cause" and fight for it - as do most Christians.  We find homosexuality a particularly offensive sin, so we fight against gay marriages, ignoring all of the other straight non-believers.  We find abortion particularly horrific, so we join pro-life groups, ignoring all of the other pro-life non-believers.  And this is not to say that these causes are bad, it's just not up to us to decide who should receive the Gospel and who shouldn't.
