Russel Black was agnostic before the concert. He attended the Route 91 country music festival with his sister. After the shooting he found faith in God. Here’s a video of him telling his story.

Some will see this as an emotional decision made out of fear. Others will assert it as evidence for God. I see it as someone whose commitment to agnosticism was ungrounded and ultimately dismantled.

Agnosticism is the belief that it is impossible to know whether or not God exists. The Bible doesn’t provide a real category for agnosticism as it states that humans intuitively know there is a creator because of what God has revealed about himself in creation: his eternal power and his divine nature (Romans 1). Humans have to actively suppress this knowledge of God.

But sometimes life’s trials and traumatic events can cause it to rise back to the top.
