DonЎЇt you wish that someone to simply show you the evidence for God's existence, instead of saying statements like, "You just have to believe." If a person opposes even the possibility of there being a God, then any evidence can be rationalized or explained away. It is like if someone refuses to believe that people have walked on the moon, then no amount of information is going to change their thinking. Photographs of astronauts walking on the moon, interviews with the astronauts, moon rocks, all the evidence would be worthless, because the person has already concluded that people canЎЇt go to the moon.

When it comes to the possibility of God's existence, the Bible says that there are people who have seen actual evidence, but they have suppressed the truth about God. On the other hand, for those who want to know God if He is there, He says, "You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you."

God not only has revealed Himself in what can be observed in nature, and in human life, but He has even more specifically shown Himself in the Bible.

The Bible was written many years ago, by many different authors, in different locations and on separate continents, written in different languages, covering different subject matters at different times in history. Yet, there is a consistency in its message. Throughout the entire Bible the same message appears:

God created the world we live in, and created us specifically to have a relationship with Him.

He deeply loves us.

We have sinned and are under God's judgment, in need of His forgiveness.

God provided a way for our sins to be forgiven.

He asks us to receive His forgiveness and have a relationship with Him that will last eternally.

If you take a close look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. But, Jesus did, that is what sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you're looking at Him. He said, "I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." He claimed attributes belonging only to God: to be able to forgive people of their sin, free them from habits of sin, and give them eternal life in heaven. Unlike other teachers who focused people on their words, Jesus pointed
