OK, a verse from the Bible...
Why should you read any further?
Will anything here help you in any way?
Why should you believe anything I say?
There are millions of religious websites and YouTube videos; billions of different opinions about God and religion.
Why bother with this site?
All I can say is: why not have a look?
You've nothing to lose, except a few minutes.
Whether you're a believer or not, this site just might answer some of your questions, or at least suggest a few lines of enquiry.
The journey is yours, not mine.
What's my motivation?
I'm enthusiastic to share what I found.
That's what happens when you find it.
You can find it, too.
The truth, that is.
The truth about God's existence.
The truth about God's character.
The truth about life, the universe, and everything.
You just need to look in the right places, in the right way.
Your search can start here.
Can I convince you?
But God can.
And He will, if you allow Him.
There is a world of misinformation and confusion about God.
The truth has been so clouded that most of us don’t have anything like the clear picture, or any picture at all.
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.
Any wrong pieces 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, find God.
I can't answer all the questions, or even any of them comprehensively; this site is just somewhere to start.
The answers to the "big questions" provide many pieces of the picture; questions such as:
- Who is God?
- Why did He create us?
- What went wrong?
- Why does a "loving" God allow, cause and even condone death and suffering?
- Is the Bible God’s infallible word or just another book?
- What happens when we die?
- Is there a hell where people burn forever?
- Who is Jesus and why did He come to earth to die?
When you've assembled the main pieces, you will have the truth of who the God of the Bible is.
The answers to the big questions will be consistent, cohesive, logical.
They will also be in harmony with the Bible.
God will reveal Himself to you so that you will know He exists, if you ask Him.
He will fill in the rest of the picture, if you let Him.
A picture of indescribable, incomprehensible, unconditional love.
Everything will then make sense.
But don't believe me.
Don’t believe even those I recommend on this site.
Don’t believe any person or organization.
Trust only Him.
God will use the Bible and His people to help you along the way.
If what anyone says is not in agreement with the Bible, be wary of them.
To discern the difference between what is true and what is false, you need to:
- be genuinely seeking the truth.
- have an open mind and a teachable spirit.
- be honest and sincere in asking God to lead you.
- be open to His leading.
Why not have a good, honest look?
God says that if you seek Him with all your heart, you will find Him.
