Every morning, the sun rises over the horizon, the birds chirp and the leaves rustle in the wind, all creations proclaim the wonders of their creator. Although we cannot see God, yet through His creations we can affirm His existence. Just as Newton’s atheist friend, who was unable to accept that the model appeared out of thin air, how could he then come to accept the appearing of the universe without a creator? If even the simplest keychain needs to be designed and made by someone, how could we then believe that the whole world existed without a creator? This is precisely what the verse means, “For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” God is a spirit, which is why no one can see God. However, God has used something tangible and easy to understand to illustrate His existence to us, which is through His creation.

Every single person will be called one day, to stand before the judgement throne of God to receive His judgement. On that day, we will be without excuse to claim that we did not know His existence because we could not see God. If we do so and think that we can escape the judgement of God, God shall speak to us with the sternest voice: “Haven’t I at every day, every hour and every moment of your life, through My creation made manifest My existence to you?” How could you feign ignorance that you have not seen Me?
