Many people including supposed Christians do not live as if God is real, and that He impact or should impact all aspects of our lives.P. 90 The idea of an all-encompassing, all-penetrating world of God, interactive at every point with our lives, where we can always be totally at home and sage regardless of what happens in the visible dimension of the universe, is routinely treated as ridiculous.
Later Willard says,
P. 91 I personally have become convinced that many people who believe in Jesus do not actually believe in God. By saying this I do not mean to condemn anyone, but to cast light on why the lives of professed believers go as they do, and often quite contrary even to what they sincerely intend.How do you know if you really believe in God? If you really trust in Jesus?
Ask yourself, "Does God impact my real life?"
