Do you believe in the God of the Bible?
NO - do you want to believe? Even more, do you want to know?
If you do, then this site is a good place to start.
If you don't, then perhaps this site will show you that the god you don't want to believe in, or don't want to know, doesn't actually exist.
At the outset, I can't give you a convincing reason why you should take any more interest in what I have to say than the millions of other religious websites.
I can only recommend that you persevere and have a look.
Because the God of the Bible exists, and the truth of His character is the most beautiful, the most powerful, the most life-changing truth in the universe.
He is the God I would have wished for, the best God imaginable.
Maybe He will be for you as well.
Worth a look?
What do you have to lose?
If it's true, what would you gain?
If you accept God's gift, how about eternal life, in a perfect body, on a perfect earth, in a perfect universe, exploring and experiencing wonders beyond our imagination, forever?
The universe is our inheritance, literally. Think about it.
You'll find true reality, the meaning and purpose of our existence, and get to know our God who is beautiful beyond words, whose love for us infinite, eternal and unconditional. This all sounds too good to be true. But it is true.
Before going any further, if you're genuinely interested in finding the truth, then there are two essential requirements. The following Bible verses spell these out:
The only person who can reveal God to us is God Himself. We must, however, be totally genuine and sincere and approach Him with a completely open and honest mind and heart. Anything less won't succeed.
We also need to accept the existence of the supernatural. There is more to reality than we experience through our physical senses. There is a spiritual dimension to our existence. We can't find God and actually know Him unless we accept this, because God is a spiritual being and it is God's Spirit (the Holy Spirit) who communicates with us.
This brief article explains how God designed our "normal" state to be.
I was a die-hard skeptic and agnostic and scoffed at all things "spiritual" and "supernatural".
Finding true reality is eye-opening, mind-boggling, life-changing, and infinitely rewarding. It's the ultimate, and ultimately eternal experience. It frees us from wanting to escape our worldly "reality" because it is the best reality imaginable.
A few minutes on Wikipedia shows me how little I know...and how much I don't know.
This site is about what I know.
When I say know, I mean what I know to be true.
I can't convince you that what I know to be true is actually true, to the point where you also know it to be true. Just like you can't know that I like avocados, in spite of all the evidence and argument that I might present. You might be convinced into thinking and even acknowledging that I like avocados, however it isn't something that you could know, to the point where, say, you would bet your life on it.
In the same way, even though I know the God of the Bible exists (I would literally bet my life on it), I can't make you know that. You can only know that God exists from personal experience. So I'm not attempting to convince you by evidence or argument. I'm simply presenting my experiences, what I've discovered. I'm also presenting resources that I trust and that might help you find what I have found; nothing less than the meaning of life, the universe and everything.
A big claim?
Can I convince you?
But God can.
And He will, if you ask Him and allow Him to.
The truth has been so clouded that most of us don’t have anything like the clear picture of God, or any picture at all, save one of division and conflict.
The picture of God that reveals His true character is like a jigsaw puzzle.
If a piece doesn’t fit perfectly, then it doesn’t belong.
A wrong piece will confuse, mislead and discourage.
The purpose of this site is to help you find the right pieces so you can assemble the picture yourself and on the way, hopefully, find God.
To discern the difference between what is true and what is false, we need to:
- be genuinely seeking truth.
- have an open mind and a teachable attitude.
- be honest and sincere in asking God to lead us.
- be open to His leading.
- be humble.
Pride, self-sufficiency and a closed mind will prevent God from reaching us, however He says that if we seek Him with all our heart, we will find Him.
In the presentation below, David Asscherick explains how we can "know" that God exists.
