Q. I’ve really enjoyed your website over the years and have told many friends about it. I have been trying to financially support your website, as well, so many more can be reached. My question has to do with one of my 11 yr old twin boys. He is not convinced that God is real. How can I direct him to see that it’s true?
A. I can give you two approaches, First, In Romans 1:18-20 Paul said God has made his presence so obvious through the creation that man is without excuse. In God’s opinion a careful inspection of His creation should be sufficient to reveal Himself as our Creator. That means people who have developed an alternative explanation for the creation have refused to believe that God is the Creator in the face of overwhelming evidence, and are trying to avoid the conclusion that’s staring them right in the face.
Second is God’s 100% track record in predictive prophecy. This is God’s favorite strategy of proving himself to His people. It consists of announcing things that haven’t happened yet so when they do happen He can prove to His people that He alone knows the end from the beginning. I’ve come to the conclusion that this is the most important reason for Christians to undertake a study of Old Testament prophecy. Here’s a link to my study on the subject to give you an overview.
