Why Do Christians Believe In God?

To begin with, God discloses himself through his creation and his word! His word became flesh through Jesus Christ. I always wonder why everyone makes such a big deal about the “Red Letter” Jesus scriptures. I mean the words of Jesus are there from the beginning of Genesis to the end of Revelation. A Christian will say that that “God found them” through the word. Not that they “Found” God through the word! Through the word God totally and without mistake God reveals himself, otherwise how would a Christian ever be able to say they “know” him without the word?

Psalms 19: 1-6
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Second, because the Universe continues, someone must be supporting it. Why does the Universe keep functioning? Why doesn’t everything just fade away and die? Evolutionists with Evolution and Natural Selection theories cannot explain it. Former Stanford Physicist Lambert Dolphin states, “The nucleus of the atom contains positively-charged and neutral particles – to use a simplistic model. Mutual electrostatic repulsion between the like-positive protons would drive the nucleus apart if it were not for the “strong force” which binds the nucleus together”. He concluded by stating that the only way to account for the “strong force” was that God was behind it.

Acts 17: 24-25

24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.

Third, are the Miracles that validate the transcendental. In the pages of the Holy Bible miracles are scattered all through it. They are presented in such a way that shows evidentially that God does indeed exist! Should we just accept the recorded miracles as a valid proof for God’s existence? Yes we can, and there are three good reasons to validate the proof; one it is the word of God. Two, Jesus is the Son of God, and three, there is eyewitness testimony! Over 500 people, believers and nonbelievers saw and touched our RISEN Lord Jesus Christ the Messiah!

Luke 24: 36-42

36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”
40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate it in their presence.

God Bless!
