Throughout time, people have argued about the reality of God and the deity of Jesus. The nature of the argument was based on heritage, on behavior, on physicality–basically, on anything that the non-believer could hang their hat upon.
The argument is really not an intellectual argument; It is a spiritual one. To concede that God is real and that Jesus is the Son of God, requires that those that concede submit their wills to the will of God. While God would never force a person into submission; neither will he share his lordship.
The blind man used an irrefutable argument–I was blind, but now I see! No theological rhetoric, no exegesis of text–simple personal experience of how Jesus changed his life.
Today, nothing has changed. Men spend lifetimes trying to refute God’s reality and Jesus lordship. But they cannot refute the personal experience Jesus has made in men’s lives. Instead, they criticize, persecute and attempt to undermine the credibility of those changed by Christ’s love and sacrifice. We are called to be prepared to give an account of Christ’s impact on us–are you ready? “I was___, but, now I_____!
God Bless You

He listens to the godly person who does his will. 32 Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. 33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing
