Would proof change the atheist mind?

I happened to come across a question in the religion and philosophy forum.' Atheist, if Jesus Christ came in the flesh on earth today and you discovered in fact it was Jesus would you accept Him as your Saviour?' In trying to answer the question it turned into an article. I have no control over what anyone will say or do so whatever answer I have is pure speculation in regards to the atheist. It is my prayer that all would come to believe in Jesus Christ our Saviour.
After writing the hub I pondered if I was going to publish it, or let it lie. It has been my experience that the atheist is adamant that there is no God so am I just spinning my wheels here. Then it came to me from the Spirit of God this is not about me but about serving Jesus Christ at whatever the cost. I too was once lost then found. Soldiers for Christ will be persecuted but if God be for us then who can be against us? Romans 8:31 If one seed is planted Praise to Almighty God. The outcome is in His Holy hands, amen.
The question itself is loaded with many possibilities. Perhaps if the atheist had proof, they would convert. For me I think there is a vast amount of 'scientific' evidence of Jesus Christ. What I think is scientific evidence may not be so to the atheist or maybe they are ignorant of certain findings. Would the atheist convert to Christianity and repent of sin if there were proof? I do not know. Many have hardened hearts and will not budge. We can only pray that the Spirit of God will soften their heart and save them from the enemy of this world before it is too late.
If the atheist would check out the scientific evidence that God is, was and will always be there would probably be allot fewer atheist, if in fact this is what the atheist really needs, evidence. Maybe they do not want to know the truth. Maybe they are afraid to know. We were all created in the image of God and inside of every being is a longing to be satisfied with the love of God. Praise to Jesus who came for the sinner He will not return to save but to reign as King of Kings. God will soften hearts to Him but He can do what He wants, He is God. Many hearts God will allow to remain hardened unto eternal death. Ephesians 4:18 'Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him.'
Men of science who were trying to prove the Bible wrong discovered though science with evidence, in spite of themselves that God is real and HIS miracles, signs, wonders were all possible as written in the Word of God. The events in the Bible were true as recorded by the disciples and profits.The Discovery, A&E and the History channel each present a couple of programs per year that run for a couple of weeks at a time and share the findings. I have seen the program on the History channel and it is fascinating. God wants none to perish. He sends the messengers. Will they receive or deny God, in time. One never knows what tomorrow may bring. This to me is amazing and limitless love by our creator to literally show through science, that His Word is truth. If an atheist saw only part of the program I saw and still denied the existence of God they have a true heart of a fool.
Eternity is forever and not a just a walk in the park. Well, we can only hope and pray, share the good news and if cast out by the atheist dust off our boots and move on. "Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. Matthew 7:6
One day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. Romans 14:11 The problem is atheists don't believe in God, therefore they don't believe they will have to bow. The majority of atheist mock the Christian, Jesus and His teachings but they will be so scared when Jesus returns because they will know the truth. Suddenly they realize who Jesus is, but it is too late. They have rejected Him. The people of earth will clearly recognize these phenomena as coming from the hand of God, for they are said to cry out to the mountains where they take cover, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! Revelation 6:16
If the atheist heard a testimony of an atheist who died, went to hell and came back to live and tell about it, they might believe and repent. There are hundreds of stories found on you tube, alone. These people were never the same again. Listen to a Christian's testimony who died and got a glimpse of heaven and came back to life to tell others. They did not want to return to planet earth by any way, shape or form after getting a glimpse of Heaven. Heaven and Hell are real.
Below is a video of a man who died and came back from hell to tell about it. All you need to do is keep open for a few minutes and listen. You have nothing to loose but everything to gain. Anyway, only you decide what you will believe. No one is twisting any arms. We all have a free will to choose. A wise man rightly divides the truth, right? You can see if this mans experience matches up with your evolution theory or your belief in, 'no God.'. We die and our bodies do something. That is a proven and scientific fact, right? There is plenty of evidence on that one!
I understand you do not believe, atheist. That is your choice. I am not judging you. I am only saying, .it is sad that in these uncertain and dangerous times that God is cast out lest we offend one, of another religion.' Funny thing, religion is about God, is it not? Well, that is another topic anyway. When the creator of the universe, Almighty God can not be mentioned in the classroom, that is evil lurking in a growing epidemic of control and power. This is wicked and evil. I heard a fact just days ago from Reverend Kennedy that American History is no longer taught in the secular classroom or colleges. The prince of this world, Satan wants to deceive any and all that he can. Do not be deceived. The devil is a liar and thief. He comes comes only to steal, kill and destroy. John 10:10.
God will send the messengers and He will come for His sheep. He still sits on the throne. Anyone that struggles with unbelief in Christ, look into the mirror and deep into your eyes and ask yourself what if the Christian is right and I am wrong?
I hope you choose to play the video I left for you. It is a true story about an atheist who died, went to hell and came back to share his testimony. With all due respect, if you do not believe I I challenge you to watch the video. Thank you for coming over for the read. I share in the Spirit of Christ Jesus.
You will see me soon on your page at the hubs. I cant wait to see what is shining from you on these pages of love. Skye
