Live chat with a Christian who cares
Most people in the world think that some type of God exists. But there are still a lot of people that say “There is no God” – but how can you be certain? Proving that something doesn’t exist is impossible – all a person can truthfully say is that the thing in question probably doesn’t exist based on the evidences they have seen or heard. But this does not prove that the thing doesn’t exist.
An atheist is actually believing by faith that there is no God rather than believing by proof! The only other option is to agree that there is a possibility that outside of their understanding a God could exist but that they have seen no convincing arguments for God. However to say this infers that in the future there is a possibility that they could hear or see a convincing argument for the existence of God.
There are many different evidences that point to the fact that a God exists. A few of them are on this page – they don’t prove 100% that God exists but they do make it very very likely. If there is a small chance that God does exist then you should really try to find out more about Him and whether he exists as your whole eternal future will depend on what this God thinks about you!
How much do you know?
If I was to draw a circle to represent all the knowledge that exists in the world at the moment – how much of that circle would you think you know about? I would guess that even the most intelligent person in the world would probably know less than 10% of all that there is that can be known, and you and me would have a much smaller percentage. The question then has to be asked – in that other 90-99% that you don’t know about, is it possible that there could be convincing evidence that God exists? If we are truthful the answer has to be yes there could be
Who has been brainwashed?
Some people say that the reason people believe in God is because society has brainwashed children into believing he exists. But how can we be certain that it is not the other way around, how do we know that atheist aren’t trying to brainwash people into believing God doesn’t exist? Who gets to decide which way around it is?
Would you prefer God didn’t exist?
The way we all look at information is effected by the ideas and thoughts we already think! None of us are neutral, we are all biased either away from God or towards God. Have you ever stopped to think about if you would prefer God to exist or not? And why you have that opinion? Often people do not like the idea of someone else being in charge, they don’t want to have to listen to someone telling them what is good for them, they want to choose to do whatever they feel is enjoyable. We would love to help you find out about God and how He can bring you hope, peace and a new perspective on life – Find out about Jesus for yourself here.
Can we test if God exists?
Some people ask for tangible, testable scientific evidence that God exists but the problem is that if the God talked about in the Bible is real, then he is a God that exists outside of and independent of the universe. So trying to use and test the material things around us to prove if God is there is not good logic – it’s a bit like judging the beauty of a painting by how much it weighs, or asking to have a thought placed on a scale!
Can we ever say something is wrong or right?
In order for absolute right and wrong to exist there needs to be an outside source (God) saying what is right and wrong. Some morals are cultural and relative but there are lots that are considered as absolutes. We all live our lives as if there are absolute morals, even if we try to deny them, but the way we live shows what we really believe. If God didn’t exists then right and wrong would just be an opinion and not definitely right or wrong. Absolute right and wrong infer an outside standard or judge which would infer that God does exist.
What about design?
The Universe has the appearance of design and purpose therefore, if we were not looking at things from a biased point of view, we would naturally assume an intelligent designer. This is just the same as if we saw some scattered stones on a hill side spelling “I love you” – we would expect that some intelligent designer had arranged the stones in that pattern to communicate with us.
How do things exist?
We know that things exist and that it also possible for those things not to exist – so this means that things must have been caused to exist (a thing can’t bring itself into existence as it would need to have already existed to do that – which makes no sense). The first thing that caused everything else must have always existed and be able to cause everything else to come from it – this is a great description of God!
