Everyone by virtue of their birth is aware of a creator. From there, it gets to be an investigative journey.<quoted text>
Who writes stories for the first time and the story only written by one very small select group of men! hundreds of years after this most important person died?
There is nothing written by anyone else from the entire mediteranean during 4 BCE to 30 AD about a godman miracle working Jesus. Devastating!
Imagine that today we learn or hear about the civil war for the very first time, and only from a small select group of people. That is how the bible was presented.
........makes no common sense.
And don't kid yourself Mike. If God physically appeared in the sky this afternoon, you'd probably acknowledged His existence, but you would speak out against His views on social issues. You would still reject Him!
That's why its up to us to prove ourselves to God. Not the other way around ..
