Look At Creation Around You

Somebody said to me, "if God existed why won't he show me the proof he must know I need to believe in Him. Doesn't God want me to believe? Why won't God help me? He wants me to go to hell?" what do I say?

God does not send anyone to hell. People send themselves. Do you realize if the earth got off course 2 inches, the whole world would be chaos. How do you really think the beautiful surroundings got the way they are. Somebody had to do it....God did it in 6 days and He is in control of it all. Tell him "what if I am right and you are wrong?"

Maybe he asked the wrong question to God. Maybe in this person's mind he already knew that God don't exist so therefore he already asked in doubt. I believe he believes in God or otherwise he would not be asking. You knowing God exists, and having faith, ask God to show this person what kind of God he is. Maybe God has already showed this person he is real, but he refuses to believe.

Dear Sue: Is your friend asking for salvation or just wanting proof of God's existence? He wants us, His beloved creation. He has no obligation to prove Himself, although out of His mercy He does prove His existence everyday in everyway. We can't demand how, when or where He will open our eyes to see and our ears to hear. When we approach Him with a humble heart, then He does His mighty work. Hope this helps. Blessings!

Tell your friend that God wants us all to believe-He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross that we could believe;God wants to help you know Him-He sent His Word, the Bible, to show you how to believe in Him;God doesn't want you to go to hell-He sent Jesus to you so that you will NOT go to hell, rather to live in eternity with Him. The "proof" of God is by faith-just ask Him for eyes to see and ears to hear, He's everywhere; He's All in all! Oh how He'll welcome you!

Rebbeca, That is one of the problems. The person HAS asked God to show him, but nothing.The person says that if there were a God he would let him know some how rather than let a "child of His" go on thinking there is no GOd.

tell them to look in the mirror. then they will see what God looks like, for he created all of us in his own image. Tell that person took look around, no man can create what God has created. If this person asks God if he is for real, God will surely show him.

Thank you and God bless you all for response, especially Tedia and Danial.If I said to this person just look around at creation and the beauty of birth, he would only reply that it could happen without a god. He wants proof.I tell him God will not perform tricks like a circus clown, but he says if I had enough faith in my God I, through God, could move a mountain, so what is a small little bit of 'proof' to save someone from hell? I wish I had the knowledge that some of you here at ChristianNet have!

It might sound corny but; Go to the maternity ward of a hospital and watch the newborn babies; go to a meadow full of wild flowers and behold it's beauty; get up early and watch the sunrise; listen to the birds singing in the morning. If you do these things you will behold all the proof necessary.

PT2. But then show them Hebrews 11; God wants loving followers who have FAITH in Him; not possible if every single person knows 100% for certain they must believe in God, which would then include many who never love Him! "Does God want him to believe?" Just intellectually? No! God wants him to TRUST in and give his whole life to Him! He wants him to repent of his sin! All that God wants us to understand about Him can be found in the Bible.

PT1. Sue, when Atheist-Agnostics question God's existence, I try this: Point them to evidence for the historical reliability of the New Testament; most of it really was written while eyewitnesses were still alive! We have an abundance of manuscripts! Then ask them "Why do you think Jesus' disciples risked being killed (and most were!), if Christ never rose from the dead?" Show them 1 Corinthians 15:3-19. They'll also learn Paul was reasonable, and if Christ isn't alive, Christianity can't exist!

3. I stopped and thought about all that God has given me and I give thanks. I had a wonderful wife and mom and sister. Many don't even have that. I was chosen as His child, where many have gone to hell. You and I have to count our blessings because many others out there cannot walk or talk are even see. Stop looking at the wrong in your life and give thanks for all the good you have gotten from God. Maybe then you will see a God that is so awesome. I will be praying for you sister.

2. God shows you His whole creation and you do not see. God never promised you would never have problems, as a matter of fact, you might have more. I had four people in my life, dad, mom, wife and sister die within two years, God carried me through time. I could have stood and questioned Him on why, but I know that God carried me by the hand and showed me that life is short, and that I need to be able to be right with Him. My time could go just as fast. We are ask to thank Him in our good and our bad,
---lupe2618 on 7/19/05

Sue, to begin with, you are seeking God. A person that is not saved never seeks God, he runs away from God. His love is for the world. You are seeking God to respond to you and He has so many times but you look at things through the eyes of the world and how it pertains to you alone. Are you close to God, in your reading, your life? He speaks to you through His word. How can you or for that matter anyone understand God if they don't go to His word? You mentioned, does God exist?
---lupe2618 on 7/19/05

Dear Sue Greetings in the mighty name of Jesus, isent it great that God loved you so much that He sent his Only Son to die a cruel Death. would you lay your life down fo a friend, the Proof lies between those lines

last night I was over heard a girl in our youth group saying something of the same thing. She has had to deal with a lot of death. I wanted to tell her that the world doesn't revolve around her and it isn't all about her. I have gone through a lot too. but don't take it personaly. compare yourself to Job

'ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the doors will be opened unto you', so says the word of god. god has given us freedom to make choices in life. he will not enter into anyones heart if he is not invited. ask your friend to first desire the presence of god in all earnestness. he/she must thirst for the lord and sooner or later your friend will get proof not only of god's existence but also of his unconditional love and mercy.

Creation speaks of God. Man is without excuse if he does not believe in a Creator. None of this could have happened by itself. However, if anyone asked me a question worded the way you have told us you were asked I would want to know why they believe that there is a hell that God will send them to if they don't believe in God anyway. I don't think that many people disbelieve quite as much as they claim they do.
---Xanthi on 7/19/05

Sue, Say,God does not want you to go to Hell. The only way to know God is through Jesus Christ. They have to believe why Jesus went to the cross and ask Him into there lives. They have to come to Jesus and ask forgivness, and then God will make Himself known to them through the Love of Jesus. God sent Jesus, whoever believes on Him shall have eternal life.
---Linda3939 on 7/19/05

Hi Sue, through time it has been proven that no idea can prove completely that God exists. It is easier to disprove that he doesn't exist. But that doesn't mean that he doesn't because believing in God requires FAITH. It is only when you believe that you can understand that God loves you. Faith is believing in what we can't see. So I think your friend will understand more if you lead them to read the book of Romans.Tig
