How can you be so sure there is a God, since science hasn’t proven His existence?


The existence of God cannot be proven in a laboratory or through the complicated mechanisms of logic. Neither can love, beauty, or happiness, but that does not mean they are not real. In the same way, just because you cannot “prove” that God exists as you can prove a chemical formula, it does not mean that He is not real. It only means you are using the wrong tools.

Faith is not anti-intellectual. Mr. Graham has said, “Some of the finest scientists I have ever met are men and women with a deep faith in God, because they realize that science alone cannot explain where we came from or why we are here. They are convinced that science itself points to an all-wise and all-powerful Creator. As the Bible says, ‘The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands’ (Psalm 19:1).”

We invite you to look beyond the physical world to the greatest evidence of all—the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Bible says we can know God is real, because He came into this world in the Person of Jesus Christ. If you want to know what God is like, look at Christ, who is “the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15).

We urge you not to let pride or anything else get in the way of discovering the new life He alone can give. When we open our lives to Jesus Christ, we are admitting that we do not have all the answers and cannot save ourselves. The Bible says, “The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men” (1 Corinthians 1:25).

The Bible also says, “You can never please God without faith … Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God” (Hebrews 11:6, TLB). You best demonstrate your faith in a bank by putting your money in it. You best show your faith in a doctor by trusting him in times of illness.

You best prove your faith in a boat by getting aboard. You demonstrate faith in Christ by trusting Him with your life and by receiving Him unconditionally as your Savior.

  1. Julia says:

    I was born in Texas and was living a stellar life for a while. When I was three-years-old, my parents got divorced and I moved to the Four Corners. I never knew God until my dad met this wonderful woman. She taught me everything I know about God. A couple weeks ago I got baptized. Everyone was so happy when I made the choice and so was I. I love God. But even now I still look for proof. Reading this helped me out a lot in knowing He is there and He loves me. Thank you, and Merry Christmas.

  2. Pamela Bissett says:

    My husband is a wonderfully kind, honest, loving man but doesn’t believe there is a God. He says the only way he might consider reevaluating his beliefs is if someone can show him errors in his logical thinking. I feel God has laid on my heart the need to find the tools and words to cause him to question his thinking. Can you help?

    1. BGEA says:

      Pamela, it’s wonderful that you want to help your husband in his faith. Please watch for a response from our team via email.

  3. Gary says:

    I SAY I believe in God and that I accept Jesus Christ as my savior, but I think I am a liar. If I really believed, than I wouldnt continue in so much sin. You know your mom or dad are real and would never do bad things in front of them. Why do I do bad things if believe God can see?

    I just lost a loved one, I have fear that I wil never see him again.
    I hate that I have so much doubt in religion.

  5. John Bartlett says:

    I have been a Christian for 29 years now, but I have doubts. I feel if I believe 100% then I would act different. I am just afraid it could just be a hope of man and not real. How can I know 100% for sure? Please help.

    1. BGEA says:

      John, someone from our team will respond to you as soon as possible.

    I know there is God but sometimes, life adversities make me want to think otherwise. I have been praying for quite too long and answers are not coming forth?
