3 Indisputable Reasons to Believe in God

“One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” John 9:25 NIV

What do you as a believer say to an unbeliever who is adept at poking holes in any case you present as evidence for the existence of God? How do you counter their rejection of your appeal to a standard of absolute truth (the Bible)? What do you say to their demand for scientific proof in dismissing your claims to the reality of a spiritual dimension to this life and beyond?

Thankfully, there are Biblical precedents and strategies for answering such objections. One line of approach which I’ve found to be very helpful can be summed up in one word – “history.” The power behind this approach in countering atheistic opposition to truth is in sharing the “HisStory” aspect of history. Emphasizing God’s role, both prophetically and instrumentally, in the writing of His story presents factual evidence that is difficult to dispute. In this vein of reasoning, I share here three appeals to history as undeniable facts that are associated with some form of Divine foreknowledge and supernatural intervention.

Turning 40 Today!

The defining moment of my life happened 40 years ago today. It was a Monday night,October 25, 1971. My wife and I had agreed to attend a Bible study that was meeting at a home located inSt. Paul,Minnesota. We had already attended several times and initially it was with some reticence. My sister had been cajoling us for months to check it out. We had seen a marked change in her life which she attributed to a new found faith in God and we were happy for her. Our first visit was simply to please her and get her off our backs. When that meeting concluded, everyone in the group was discussing where they should gather the following Monday and my sister, bless her heart, suggested our house. And that is how we got roped into weekly attendance.
