I don't need God

 by Matt Slick

If you say that you don't need Him, then you believe He exists. If you do, why would you say that you don't need Him? Isn't He the One who determines your destiny? Doesn't He have the authority and power to do as He pleases and to send you to Heaven or Hell? It is foolish to say you don't need the One who is your Creator--who loves you and has provided the way for forgiveness of sin found only in Jesus. Without him, you're lost and your sins will be held against you. You need God because only He can cleanse you from your sins (John 1:1,14; 14:6; 1 Pet. 2:24).

What do you need? Are you really doing that well without God? Are you happy with the way things are in your life because of your sins? If you aren't, then you need Jesus. And even if you are happy the way things are, you still need Him because you can't take what makes you happy with you when you die. What makes you happy isn't what pleases God. That can only be found through Jesus and his death on the cross..

How could you not need God?  I mean, isn't he the creator?  How could you not need the one who is good, loving, kind, and has all power to work those in your life?
