Googling for Truth

April 1, 2011 | 17 comments

This is what we do when we’re looking for answers, when we’re trying to make a case: We Google.

We type in words, hit Enter, and trust Google to point the way.

“There’s not such thing as Jesus.” Someone typed those six words into the search engine. Google brought the doubter here. I know, because I saw it in my site statistics.

I wonder what the seeker was really looking for: Proof to support their case that Jesus is a fairy tale? Evidence that there is no God? Or maybe the seeker was looking for something to counteract unbelief, a bit of hope to hold onto?

I wonder: When they arrived, did they find the great surprise? Did they discover, in this place, evidence of the One they didn’t think existed?

Father God, When people Google their ways through life, searching for the answers, may they find the answers in each one of us — Christ in us, the hope of glory. Amen.

    Whomever that was, I bet they were surprised. And if they hung around your words for a few minutes, I bet he or she is thinking otherwise now.

    LOVE this! It's always interesting to see how people get to your site. I get some pretty regularly that probably get their world rocked when they find something that they weren't expecting…

    We never know, do we, whom God will place in our paths. They may not have been looking for Jesus when they arrived, but if they stuck around long enough, they'd have found Him.

    Keep to it.

    Some of the ways people come to blog are funny. "Naked Worker" happens at least three times a week.

    Who knows what (or who) lurks out there on the web!

    "Google brought the doubter here."…perhaps…and then, maybe they were led here by Someone greater…

    No "luck"…no "by chance"…and no mistake…

    Your words…from Him…totally bless…
