Two levels of belief in God: “There should be a God”: “There is God”

Mirza Bashir Ahmad, an able son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad- the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi has written a good note on the above topic, I want that the viewers enjoy it reading:

 Mirza Bashir Ahmad said:

“Belief in God has two levels. The first level of belief is confined to the understanding that there must be Creator and a Lord of this universe, for it does not stand to reason that the heavens and the earth are the result of accident and have no Creator.

The second level of belief is the complete and real recognition of the existence of our Creator, His attributes and the path to reach Him. Thus, the first level is the belief: ‘There should be a God’ and the second level is the firm faith: ‘There is a God’.

Let us understand once and for all that reason can never take us to the level of absolute certainty:

‘There is a God’; it only takes us up to the level where we can say that there should be a God. Hence, we come to the conclusion that though reason cannot produce true faith, it does prepare the ground for it. It will not show us the face of God, but will point to Him from a distance. It will not unite us with God, but will open up the way that leads to Him. It will not give us satisfaction but will give us the passion to achieve it. Also, it will not convince us of the existence of God, but will give us the conviction that there should be a God.”
