australian story

Last night, I caught the end of "Australian Story" on the ABC. It was about the australian artist Brett Knightley (I'm pretty sure that's his name anyway!) His wife (or ex-wife) made an interesting statement. She was speaking about how their daughter had adrenal cancer, and was sharing about her last few months.

She said:
"It was like she was being punished for something by a God I don't believe in"

I found that comment quite perplexing - she was saying that she didn't believe in God, yet she somehow associated her daughter's cancer and resulting death, as some form of punishment from God!

I also found it hard to comprehend that an artist (such as she was), who spends her whole life studying and re-producing nature, didn't believe in God!

Romans 1v20
From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God. (NLT)

I would think that someone who is immersed in the beauty that God has created, could not help but have some form of knowledge of God - but to say they don't believe in Him?! It's almost unimaginable.
