Taking selfie with God

Let one take a selfie with God and I will believe in His existence, says the unbeliever. But would such a selfie be accepted if there was one? Not so. The onus is on the unbelievable. Let him go before a mirror  (it has a better resolution than a camera!) and invite God aloud:

Here I stand before the Mirror!

A distinguished sound of my vocal cords I can hear,

Two holes in my skull are filled with liquids,

A vestigue of an accident, they have enabled me to see!

But you, God, where are you? Have you any semblance?

If the unbeliever leaves the mirror without seeing God then there is none so blind as him who cannot see!

Is the Almighty Creator a piece of matter to be investigated with crafted tools? To know and experience God and His power depends much on your attitude. The philosopher C S Lewis admonished:

If you are a geologist studying rocks, you have to go and find the rocks. They will not come to you, and if you go to them they cannot run away. The initiative lies all on your side. They cannot help or hinder. But suppose you are a Zoologist and want to take photos of wild animals in their native haunts. That is a bit different from studying rocks. The wild animals will not come to you: but they can run away from you…Now a stage higher; suppose you want to get to know a human person. If he is determined not to let you, you will not get to know him. You have to win his confidence. In this case the initiative is equally divided…When you come to knowing God, the initiative lies on His side. If He does not show Himself, nothing you can do will enable you to find Him. And, in fact, He shows much more of Himself to some people than to others – not because He has favourites, but because it is impossible for Him to show Himself to a man whose whole mind and character are in the wrong directions (Lewis, 1944, p.164).

Saint Paul in the Holy Scriptures declared, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Rom.1:20).
