I believe in God because of North Korea. If an evil that pervasive exists, and there have been many similar oppressive and horrible regimes throughout history, then there must be an equally pervasive force for good, since only an outside or “spiritual” force could perpetrate such widespread evil.

I believe in God because of the historical evidence for Jesus based on eyewitness accounts and the profound effect of his life.

I believe in God because I dont discount the personal testimony and experience of thousands of people throughout history who, through personal experience, changed lives or belief based on careful examination of the facts have concluded that God does, indeed, exists.

All the arguments against faith were expressed at some point in Scripture, and no matter what I say, belief ultimately boils down to a step if faith, as do most things in life.

“I do believe. Help my unbelief,” the distraught father cried out to Jesus. Even then, when face to face with Jesus, there was a problem with belief. And so no amount of evidence, no matter how overwhelming, will convince the unbeliever unless God Himself plants the spirit of belief in the willing heart.
