You are an Apatheist.
‘There may or may not be a God, but the question’s irrelevant to everyday life, and frankly I don’t care.’
Is it really worth taking the risk of saying ‘I’m not interested’ when it comes to some of the biggest questions a human being could ever ask? Why does a topic that has captivated the entire human race for millennia suddenly become irrelevant only now? Am I really that self obsessed that I think my own private universe is all that matters?
If I am an ‘apatheist’, there are two huge implications for me:
If I don’t stand for something, I’ll fall for anything. Apathy makes me more vulnerable to just ‘go with the flow’. But who says the things I go along with are flowing in the right direction?
If the ‘God’ question is important for me to answer, then I’m in big trouble if I get to the end of my life and I’ve ignored it...
God wants you to face the questions, and to seek answers.
‘God made from one man every nation... to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him.’
- Paul, speaking to Greek philosophers in Acts 17:26-27
‘...these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.’
- John, in his biography of Jesus, 20:31
