Who Needs Proof?
As a Christian I do not need tangible proof to accept the Bible as the Word of God. As Christians we walk by faith, an other-worldly stride that this present world does not understand.
I was blessed to have been raised in a Christian home and to accept Christ at an early age. For decades now I have known Him as my Savior. Never once has He let me down. Never once has He broken a promise. Never once has He turned His back on me, or given up on me although I have turned my back on Him time and time again. Never once has He not been everything His Word claims. He is God, and I have no need of physical proof. My proof lies in my faith.
It always amazes me how that people who really don't know not what Christianity is about are always the first ones to argue for its foolishness. Just go a Christian forum. The ones that know the least are the ones that talk the most not realizing that their ignorance is showing.(See my hub Are Christian Forums a Blessing or a Curse http://lifegate.hubpages.com/hub/Are-Christian-Forums-a-Blessing-or-a-Curse).
God is bigger than the physical, material world that we can see and handle. One needs to get on a different path to understand--the path of faith. I hear people say, "Well, you just use Jesus for a crutch." I should say so! I depend on Him for my very existence. I need Him at every moment. Does that make me weak? Who cares? In my weakness His strength is perfected.
The proof of a risen Savior is found in the life of faith. When I follow God's direction and seek to please Him out of a true heart of love and I see the blessing He has promised, I see reality. I walk with Him. I talk with Him. I serve Him. I worship Him--all out of a spirit of faith. I am not walking with an imaginary friend. I am not talking to the air. I am serving and worshiping a real, living person who has revealed Himself to me in Spirit. No, I do not see Him with my eyes, but that does not mean He does not exist. I meet Him on the path of faith.
Unless You have been there, you will not understand, but there is more to life than what we are aware of through our five senses. For those of us who are Christians we need no tangible proof. For those who choose not to consider that there is more to life, no proof is ever enough.
God is God no matter what anyone may think!
The following videos offer much to think about--The factual evidence for Noah's Ark is brought to light. The ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are examined and found to be burned with brimstone. The Red Sea crossing of the Children of Israel likewise is backed with facts that cannot be disputed. I hope that for us who need no proof these videos will strengthen and encourage your faith. For those who scoff, well like I said, no proof is ever enough. I just hope that maybe you will consider some things with an open mind. If you seek Him, you will find Him.
