I seem to remember saying this line years ago to somebody who was simply insisting that I was lying. After giving up on the effort to convince a determined skeptic, you also might walk away saying, "Believe what you will."
Perhaps after God has revealed so much to mankind, through His Word, through nature's obvious declarations about Him, and most importantly, through our own struggling-to-breath consciences, and we still so often "call him a liar"; perhaps God will ultimately give up, saying "Believe what you will."
We can not believe whatever we want to believe. Remember the song "I believe I can fly"? Though well sung and powerful, R Kelly could not. Of course he was speaking figuratively, but what about these lines from the same song?
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me.
