“I Believe in God”

Through my life, I’ve heard people say to me many, many times, “I believe in God.” Usually, I’m supposed to be impressed. I’m not, because when someone says that, it shows that he really doesn’t believe in God. When I say he doesn’t believe in God, I mean that he doesn’t believe, and the God He believes in, still isn’t God. When James 2:19 says that the devil believes and trembles, it doesn’t mean that demons and Satan have saving faith. I’ve said in the past that God doesn’t want to be believed in like we believe in the existence of our left foot. We believe that exists, but that isn’t much of a belief. Hebrews 6:2-3 tells us to go on to perfection, which is to believe in Jesus Christ, “not laying again the foundation of . . . faith toward God.” Hebrews is telling unsaved people to move on, to leave certain things, including that is the insufficient “faith toward God.” If you don’t believe in Jesus Christ, then you don’t believe in God, even if you say that you believe in God.
