Q:

I grew up in a religious family, but I outgrew all that years ago, and now I don't believe in God. Can you give me even one reason—just one—why I should believe in God?


A:

I could give you many reasons to believe in God—but the most important one can be put into two words: Jesus Christ.

Why do I say this? The reason is because once you understand who Jesus is, you’ll never doubt God’s existence again. In fact, you’ll have every reason not only to believe in God, but also to make Him the foundation and center of your life. You see, the Bible says that Jesus Christ was not just a great man; He was God in human flesh. In other words, when you look at Jesus, you are looking at God—in all of His compassion and love and mercy and power. Only Jesus could say, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30).

Is this true? For over two thousand years, millions of Christians have believed it is. But they have believed it because they have discovered Jesus’ life and teachings—and most of all, they have discovered the truth concerning His death for us and His resurrection from the dead. This is why I urge you to read with an open mind and heart the eyewitness accounts of His life, as they are found in the Gospels of the New Testament.

When you do, you’ll discover not only that God is real, but that He loves you and wants to change your life. More than that, you’ll discover that because of Christ we have hope—hope for today, and hope for life beyond the grave. “In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind” (John 1:4).

    I’m not sure how to start this off so I’ll get right to it. Since I was young I had faith, but once I got to my teen years I started losing more and more faith. Now at 17 I am starting to doubt my non-belief of God and what he stands for. I’d like to possibly find faith again but I’m struggling whether or not to believe. Trust me I really want to believe, I don’t want to believe there is no afterlife for me or anyone. I want to believe there is more for us.
