    Some people feel that it is bad to go seeking the truth of God, which involves facing some seemingly difficult questions; actually, the Bible says to " test the spirits," to see if they are from God:
    1 John 4:1

    "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."

    I believe that this is vital for the spiritual situation we are facing today; that is, tons of false prophets, different teachings, and different Biblical interpretations. To just settle for " just believe," seems to make us give in to whatever false teaching may come our way. Actually, this is the fuel atheist use in their rebuttals to Christianity, by exposing the lingering falsehoods that have poisoned Christianity after the death of the last apostle.

    The goal of these questions is to cause one to doubt God, and to put Christians on the spot for being " illogical," for our seemingly fallible faith. In my church right now, we are learning how to defend our faith, because in doing so, it will help younger / newer members to get a deeper understanding and " hold onto their crown," as the Bible states it.

    The assumption that has been made, is that God left us completely abandoned, without logic or an accurate path to salvation. Looking at the modern Christian world, it does seem like God is MIA, as no one can confidently identify the true path to God, amongst the millions of different trails that have been carved by mankind's established traditions.

    God is not MIA, and left one incredible way for us to discern God's established truth, from the falsehood that has been brought on.

    Atheist or non - believers, are always asking for some physical proof of God; well God left physical proof - you can touch it, see it...even eat it if you want. It's nothing new except what has been revealed in it -

    That is, The Bible.
