Either God exists or God does not exist. To say that God exists is an absolute statement. To say that God does not exist is also an absolute statement. If God is Truth, then Truth is by definition absolute. Some people will say that Truth is relative. To say that anything is relative, is a relative statement, which in terms of reasoning, is inconsistent.
All human beings must ask themselves two questions: 1. Does God exist? 2. What does that mean for my life? After this, our search then moves to which God exists and what type of a person do I become because of this?
The road to faith is in nature a dark journey. If something were certain, we wouldn’t need faith. Making absolute statements, like God does or does not exist, involves an incredible leap. Faith is filled with lots of ambiguity, ambivalence, and even pain. This is why religion has always been best lived in community. We need others to remind us that we are not crazy, to remember where we have been and to help us in where we are going. If you are a Christian, then saying God is an absolute means we can unapologetically affirm our belief in Christ, but it also means that we abide by the same hospitality, love, and grace that he did in our service to the world, and in our spiritual discourse with others. The Christian life of faith, hope, and love, is one that Christ asked us to develop when he told his disciples to “Follow him and surrender.” The God you do or do not desire is the very thing you will or will not become.
