Default Reasons To Believe (1 Peter 3:15)

Sometimes atheists come here and ask, "Why do you believe in God?" There are so many reasons, really, it's just so obvious there is a God and He knows me and He loves me. I know my Brothers and Sisters in Christ feel similarly. The LORD has pressed upon my spirit to share with those who are Spiritually Walking Dead just why I believe in God.

Some People Have Gone To Heaven And Returned
‘Heaven Is for Real’ best seller sits on ‘The New York Times’ list for three consecutive years Colton is famous for being the boy who had a near-death experience when he was 4 years old during emergency surgery for a burst appendix. Doctors offered little hope he would survive.
Not only did he live, he says he went to heaven during the operation, met Jesus, John the Baptist, his great-grandfather and a sister he didn't even know he had, then came back to tell his folks about the trip.

Bernarda Fernandez recounts her five days in Heaven and Hell: "Jesus approached me, touched my head and told me: 'I am Jesus who died for you. Look at these marks in my hands, they are still there for you. I came down from my throne of glory to speak to you; there are many things in your life to put right. You are lazy and quick-tempered. Moreover, I do not want 25% Christian nor 95%, but 100%. If you want to go to heaven, you have to be holy as I myself am holy; I came to take you for a journey.'"

Former atheist, Crystal McVea, died and went to Heaven. She describes talking with God: "It didn’t take long to realize that there was a third figure nearby." To her right, McVea said she recognized God. After years of lamenting over his existence and wondering why he would have allowed her to suffer through sexual abuse at such a young age, as well as other challenges, she said she instantly fell before him in worship."



God Always Answers Prayers
God listens to all of our prayers, regardless of what we ask (Matthew 7:7). He does not ignore His children (Luke 18:1–8). When we talk to Him, He has promised to listen and respond (Matthew 6:6; Romans 8:26–27). If we ask in faith and according to His will, the answer is "yes" (1 John 5:14–15; Matthew 21:22). Sometimes it feels like we ask in faith or according to His will, but it is not so. We know this when His answer is "no" (Proverbs 3:5). Because we are human, we experience time in a linear fashion. What feels like "no" is really just "not now" (Romans 8:25; Romans 12:12; Psalm 37:7—9). But because God lives outside of time, we cannot know that He has already answered our prayers, so we must wait. Through it all, we know that He is in control (Psalm 46:10).



Being An Atheist Is Depressing
When confronted with the truth of their lack of hope, atheists typically reveal a haughty swagger, intolerance, hypocrisy, and snarky ridicule for any who dare to profess faith in God.

We hear atheists make such outrageous, slanderous comments such as, "Religion applauds delusion and renames it 'faith'"; "Religion is a virus sustained by fear, gullibility and a tendency to believe ones elders. Rationality is the vaccine."; "Science adjusts its views based on what's observed. Faith is the denial of observation so belief can be preserved."; and "It is time that we admitted that faith is nothing more than the license religious people give one another to keep believing when reasons fail."

What's the root cause of such insulting hostility?

In Psalm 2:1-3, we see David reveal the reason why unbelievers have such aggression against God and His people: "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us."

The Psalmist says that people rage against God because they think He restricts them and interferes with what they want to do. Thus, God is viewed as oppressive and is rejected as an authority and ruler over their lives, when in fact they are bound and held in slavery to sin. But they will not admit this, instead, like children having a temper tantrum, they will insist faith is naught but foolishness (1 Corinthians 1:23).



Some Of The Smartest People Are Christians
Ray Comfort converts thousands of people every day.
William Lane Craig has never been beaten in a scientific or philosophical debate.
Benny Hinn
George W. Bush, personal friend of Jesus and former President of the United States of America, Leader of the Free World.
Pastor Zeke, who memorized the Holy Bible by age four (read his bio here)



Science Can't Answer Every Question
Our souls are somehow separate from our brains and yet science cannot answer how. We know, for example, everything about your mind can be damaged by damaging the brain. You can cease to recognize faces, you can cease to know the names of animals, but you still know the names of tools.

What science cannot explain is how you can damage one part of the brain and something about the mind and subjectivity is lost, you damage another and yet more is lost, and yet if you damage the whole thing at death we can rise off the brain with all our faculties intact, recognize loved ones, meet Jesus face to face, and still speak fluent English.

Science cannot answer how, and one knows for certain what this separateion feels like, but the only the Bible describes what happens. 2 Corinthians 5:6–8 and Philippians 1:23 say that when we leave our body, we are at home with the Lord. What a reassuring thought! We will stay in this state until Christ comes and resurrects the believers (1 Corinthians 15:20–22; 6:14) when we will be given a new, glorified body.



It Can't Be Chance
Peter Stoner, in Science Speaks (p. 100–107), has shown that coincidence in prophetic Scripture is ruled out by the science of probability. By using the laws of probability in reference to eight prophecies concerning Christ, Stoner found that the chance that any man would fulfill all eight prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 17th power. That would be 1 chance in 100,000,000,000,000,000. And that is only considering eight prophecies; Jesus fulfilled many more. There is no doubt that the Bible’s accuracy and reliability are substantiated by prophecy.



I Think About God, Therefore, He Must Be Real
Christ woos us like a bachelor woos his future bride.There are many verses that demonstrate God’s love. We can see His tenderness in Old and New Testaments alike. God created us with the intention that we would know Him, love Him, and serve Him (Ecclesiastes 12:13). He has surrounded us with evidence of himself and he keeps the facts of his existence squarely before us (Romans 1:20). When I first opened my heart to the possibility that the God of the Bible exists, I couldn't escape thinking about Him, feeling that He was thinking about me. The more I kept my mind open to this possibility, the more I read the Holy Bible, the more I knew God was reaching out to me, and He wants you to know and love Him, too.

Of course men can reject who Jesus Christ is and what He has done for them. To reject Christ is to reject God (John 10:30). So my dear atheist, what will it be for you? Will you live by man’s limited, faulty reason? Or will you acknowledge your Creator and accept God’s revelation in the Bible?

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Proverbs 3:7–8

Thank you for this, Sister. You are a credit to your gender.

When we can't understand His ways, we may yet rejoice in His promises. It's something I think we could all stand to remember more often.

Praise!

Default Re: Reasons To Believe (1 Peter 3:15)

Sister Mary, this is quite a well-written, eloquent and thought provoking post. I know atheism takes a great deal of effort with regards to the denial of the self-evident truth of God's existence and the inerrant nature of His Word, but you have just raised the already monumental hurdles considerably.

I hope and pray that this additional effort will prove too much for most atheists who take the time to read your post, and they will finally let go of the unstable equilibrium they have managed and come careening to the most stable of equilibrium in Christ, open their hearts and receive His precious gift of salvation.

Any atheist who reads your post, and can still say, "I deny God" is the type of person that would deny Him even if He were to appear before them. They would instead believe extraterrestrial aliens were behind it, or that they were hallucinating.

I feel that Jesus has achieved a glorious victory here today through your wise words!

Then do as directed by our esteemed Pastors and head on over to the Introductions subforum and make your first post there, friend. Tell us what church you go to and what your favorite Bible verse is and how you came to find Jesus. Anything else you want to share with us about how Jesus has blessed you is welcomed too.

Are you a hater of God that believes He is a morally bankrupt monster? Read Why, you ask, is God so angry? to see that it is in fact you that is the monster that mercilessly and infinitely torments God.

Stop this relentless torturing of God and accept Jesus today!

Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah wouldn't be an especially attractive person.

Is 53:2b He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

Of course, the Gospels don't give us a physical description of Jesus, but we know that Jesus was the Messiah and that Isaiah 53 is about Jesus. What are the odds that Jesus would have average looks?

Another good reason to believe, and believe now, is the fact that you will one day die, and you don't know when God will require your soul from you (Lk 12:20). 1 in 50 people have a brain aneurysm that could rupture at any moment. Worldwide 150,000 people die every day. Don't give in to atheist fear mongering. Religion isn't harmful -- well, Christianity isn't, anyway. The mortality rate is 100%. Death is certain; when you will die isn't. If death catches you unawares, you will spend an eternity in hell. ("Eternity" means "for ever.") Don't put off getting right with God. You could drop dead any moment.

Haughty swagger? You are really prejudice against atheists.

But atheists are bitter. They have no love in their hearts by definition:

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

Atheists may claim to love but when two atheists get together and even get married they do not really love each other:

They are merely two insane stalkers who just happen to be stalking each other.

This is a fantastic post, Sister Mary. There can be no argument with the logic you set out.

I think atheists are so angry and sour because Satan has dilluded them into thinking that there is no God, and yet history has proved again and again that Jesus existed and that he died (until he wasn't dead anymore, praise Glory!) for our sins.

Numbers 14:11: How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?

This is not true! The LORD calls me to be mature in my thinking, and so I am (1 Corinthians 14:20). But to be mature in our thinking requires us to think righteously (Proverbs 1:7; Proverbs 3:7; Ecclesiastes 2:26). You see dear, He wants us to grow. He wants us to mature. Hebrews 6:1 tells us to leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to spiritual perfection, and so I have. The word for ''perfection'' or ''maturity'' in the Greek is ''teleiotes.'' It means "a perfecter," one who has in his own person raised faith to its perfection, and so it is for us the highest example of faith. I take this very seriously as I love Jesus ever so much, I never want to disappoint Him. Ever.

This is the level of maturity that God wants from us: A perfect faith. The only way to perfect our relationship with God and improve our walk in holiness is do it by faith and obedience to His Word. God works faith in the believer (John 6:29), and that, my friend, is all the maturity one needs in this world!

So what if it's depressing? Oh friend, I want for you to know joy and peace and love! To live a life depressed and then spend an eternity in unfathomable torment, pain, and suffering is just too awful! Why resign yourself to that when you can have it all! You can be blessed in this life and then join us in praising the LORD for all eternity in Heaven!

Son, you remind me of a story. This is the story of a hunter who year after year kept bringing to market huge quantities of wild boar. Nobody could figure out how he did it. He never told his secret. Finally, on his deathbed, some of his friends asked him how he had done it.

"Well, it took a lot of planning. First, I set out troughs of food. The older hogs refuse to get near it at first, but the younger ones do come sniffing around, and they eventually start eating. I let them do this for about a month. Even the older boars start joining the younger ones at the trough. Then I build a fence behind the trough. This scares them at first, but they find it easier to eat here than forage for themselves, so they come back.

Then I build a second fence at a 90-degree angle to the back fence. That takes them a while to get used to, but they eventually do. Then comes the third side, and then the back side. There's a large gate in that final strip of fencing, and it's always wide open. It's on hinges. The hogs keep coming. After all, it's free food for one and all. When enough of them come in for their free food, I just shut the gate. The rest is easy."

This is precisely the strategy used by New Atheists against unsaved people. The free food is called "free-thought" and "rational thinking,"but the New Atheist High Priests are even smarter than that hunter. They make the atheists pay for the fencing and the darwinist slop in the trough. This system is called "public education," inspired by those who do not fear God but are instead wooed by the lies of Satan. The short-sighted pigs pay for the slaughter of their own offspring. Pigs love their free slop, even when it isn't free. Warn them that the slop in the trough is a trap for their piglets, and you will hear a lot of outraged squealing. You will make a lot of enemies.

You don't have to be depressed any more, friend, and you don't have to be our enemy. You don't have to fight Jesus any more. You can walk away from the trough and be free. Let us help.
