First of all peace crusader I owe you an apology. Unfortunately I was attempting to participate in a couple of other threads and mixed you up with someone else in my last post to you. Please forgive me.
Now, regarding this:
John 17:3 states that there is "the only true God". So there is only one true God and the others are false gods. How do we know that the god we worship is the true God or not? He must have the three following attributes:
1. Omnipotent - having all power; almighty
2. Omnipresent - present everywhere at the same time
3. Omniscient - knowing everything, including what happened in the past and knowing what will happen in the future.
If you were to worship a god, be sure that He is the true God.
To post this here... In a primarily " unbelieving" society (if they must be tagged something, which by the way... Not my favorite thing to do to anyone) is foolish. It makes about as much sense as it would to try and teach a second grader 10th grade math.
Now... Before anyone gets their panties in a knot, please let me explain. I am not attempting to insult anyone's intelligence, or implying that those who don't believe what we believe are not as smart. As a matter a fact, in all honesty I would have to deem them a heck of a lot smarter than myself for not subjecting themselves to the shenanigans religion presents in the first place.
Not that I regret what I have been through by any means. I wouldn't be who I am today, or perhaps, wouldn't even be here today, had I not been forced to confront some of the bologna I've seen head on in my personal life. Everyone learns differently. Nothing wrong with that. However, this is what I mean:
A second grader is not equipped yet to tackle tenth grade math. First they have to master the basics... adding, subtracting, division, and fractions, right? At this point in life tenth grade math is not even conceivable to them, let alone applicable to their life in any way.
In the same way, what you have posted is not applicable to many of these here. Why? Well, they don't even believe the basics... adding, subtracting, division, and fractions exist (speaking in a spiritual sense) or are necessary, let alone real. Can't say I really blame them either.
As long as people keep looking to a person to show them "proof" of God's existence, they will be disappointed, or perhaps encouraged, because no man or woman can do that, and no one was designed to do that, or be that. My God, have you not seen what ego maniacs people become once they gain what they perceive as a position of power or authority, or "greater knowledge"?
God is known in a person's heart. His truth is only known in a person's heart as well. I will not pretend to understand the connection between the heart and mind. I really don't, but I know it's real. I know that when a person sets their heart in any direction, there the mind will follow. Whether it is to prove to the world that God is real, or for them to disprove Gods existence because He is not real to them.
