I can argue like a Christian, too.
Whether or not God exists is a question which has plagued human minds for thousands of years. As a Christian, I know that God is real because He has changed my life in ways beyond my reckoning. The fact of the matter is that you have to allow God to come into your life first, before He can work through you. Revelation 3:20 says: “Here I am! I [Jesus] stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” Basically, you have to let Jesus into your heart. Atheists too often start with the false supposition that God can’t be real. Because they begin with this negative mindset, no proof of God could actually suffice them.
Many atheists laugh at the Bible and say it is a book of fairytales, but here’s the twist — most of them haven’t actually read the Bible! In reality, science has proven the Holy Book to be true time and time again. The more an atheist studies the Bible, the quicker he would come to the conclusion that it is, in fact, the true word of God. Lee Strobel is a good example of a staunch atheist who later became a Christian after painstakingly studying the historical evidence for Jesus Christ. Truth is, the evidence is all there just waiting to be examined with an open mind.
Atheists usually criticise “faith” in God, but it is actually they who have a bigger leap of faith. How could any thinking person wake up in the morning, look around himself and say “God does not exist?” For if God does not exist, nothing could exist. Something cannot come out of nothing. This is the basic law of cause and effect. Much to the contrary, everything in nature is evidence of design. It is absurd to say that something as complex as the human DNA could have formed itself by chance. DNA is a code and codes require a programmer. The human eye is far more complex than a camera lens. It takes faith to think that God does not exist and that everything just popped into existence on its own.
The argument for design does not end there. Look at how perfect the earth is. Earth has the perfect conditions for life to exist. In fact, our planet is located at just the right distance from the sun, such that if it moved only by a margin, life could never exist! But atheists ignore all of this and say: some random explosion in deep space created everything. Sure, this makes a lot of sense, huh?
It’s funny how atheists often portray themselves as the logical ones. But the belief that there is no God is as illogical as it gets. Sometimes atheists even contradict themselves by saying that God is evil or God is stupid. But how can God be evil or stupid if He doesn’t exist!? The truth is that atheists know deep in their hearts that God exists, but are just trying to deny it, because they don’t want Him to alter their ways of life.
As a Christian, I can only try to point you in the right directions and hope that you come to your senses before it is too late. All it really takes is for you to examine the evidence with a more open mind, instead of just starting off with the false supposition that God is an imaginary character out of some fairy-tale. I can assure you that God is very real, and this will certainly be confirmed to you once you have allowed Him to enter and change your life. In the meantime, I will be praying for you and your friends. God bless!
