The Question

Athiest, you say you have not seen evidence God exists.

What evidence would you accept?

I've asked this question for 20 years and have received few answers. The answers I have received have not been reasonable, such as the answer in video. That was an actual answer an atheist gave me: "If God will write my name with clouds." I don't think he was serious, and when I followed up he admitted that even that would not convince him to change his mind about God. But, why is it unreasonable?

One of the accusations atheists make against God is, how can we do science in a world in which God keeps changing things supernaturally? And they are right. If God was constantly doing supernatural miracles, we never could be sure if we were seeing God working or seeing a natural phenomenon. Life would be filled with uncertainties and science would be impossible. But, God is not a God of confusion. There have only been five historical times when God was working supernaturally. The rest of the time, including today, God is working providentially. That means He uses people, and what we call natural means, to accomplish His will. So asking God for a supernatural miracle is not reasonable. And imagine what it would be like if God was doing this for everybody. Writing the names of billions of people using clouds. The skies would be a mess!

But the facts are, atheists don't see the evidence that God exists because they don't want to see the evidence. They are blind to God because that is their desire. The desire for the God of the Bible not to exist. They willingly suppress the knowledge of God. This video explains:

Everyone Knows God Is Real

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." - Romans 1:18-20

God makes it clear. Everyone knows there is a God. They are WITHOUT EXCUSE.

Here is a 30 second video that explains what God is saying in the quote above:

Why don't they see the evidence God says is plainly visible? Because they "suppress the truth in unrighteousness." Suppression is something done willingly. It does not happen by accident.

Why do atheists desire to be blind to God?

The answer is in John 3:19 -

"This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil." Simply said, they love their sin.

God is simply amazing. He punishes us by giving us what we want. Those who reject God and Jesus as their Savior get exactly what they want. Eternity without God. That's called hell, the lake of fire, the second death (Revelation 21:8). Since everything good comes from God, there is nothing good in hell. It's a very unpleasant place, to put it mildly. So that's what God does with atheists. They want nothing to do with God, so He withdraws from them. And that means:

The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. - 2 Corinthians 4:4

Is it possible to recover from this blindness? Of course. As with everyone else, it is God who removes the blindness, and gives a person a new heart, making them a new person. So we should treat an atheist as we would anyone else. Love them, letting the light of Jesus Christ shine through us. That does not mean accepting or encouraging their sin. That is not love, it is hateful to encourage someone to engage in sin. And, of course, when they are open to listening, we should tell them about Jesus and the gospel as we would anyone else.

LOVE AN ATHEIST TODAY! Tell them about Jesus.

It's a spiritual battle that has nothing to do with science. It's all about God.

Evidence Beyond A Reasonable Doubt

The best book I've see for proving the existece of God in a Biblical manner through creation is: "Have You Considered?" by Julie Von Vett and Bruce Malone.

What proof is there that God exists?The answer is in Romans 1:18-20 above. It is very simple and can be explained in a single sentence. Watch our 30 second video at sciencepastor.com/creator


Romans Road

You will exist forever. The question is, where? Disobeying God is the road to death, and we have all disobeyed God:

For all have sinned [disobeyed God] and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

The consequence of sin is death. You will exist experiencing death forever.

For the wages of sin is death... - Romans 6:23a

But there is GOOD News! You can have life!

...but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 6:23b

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8

Instead of our experiencing death forever, Christ died in our place. Repent (turn away from disobeying God), believe this, trusting that Jesus truly did die in your place.

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. - Romans 5:1
