Despite the prevalence of worship of multiple deities, strangely there is one they couldn't figure out and subsequently tagged him "THE UNKNOWN GOD". It was on this backdrop that Paul reasoned with them that the unknown God is indeed the creator of all things, etc. However, their analytical mind could not accept the doctrine of resurrection as they mocked Paul when he told them that Jesus rose from the dead (Acts 17:32). What stands out for me is Acts 17:18 Then certain of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus and the resurrection. Philosophers are known to be analytical, apt to logic and rhetoric and in such discipline, there is little or no room for faith. Perhaps it's not surprising that they couldn't believe and be saved. Unfortunately, this approach to the Gospel hasn't changed in 2000 years! Most prominent atheists are often not only very well educated but above average intellectuals. The world's scientific community boasts the largest number of academic unbelievers. Why is it so?Does anyone have any idea why people who seek logic in everything never seem to find the life-saving truth in the scriptures?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
