To a believer, the evidence of God is everywhere and nearly as obvious as gravity. To the skeptic, all these phenomena could be explained by chance or natural forces. Each group seems to be ignoring the plain evidence from the other point of view. Some might be tempted to make peace between these two groups by trying to compromise and come up with an acceptable middle ground. This is not my intent, either. I am firmly in the "believer" camp. I am trying to grow in my ability to see things from the other side so that I can understand and befriend more people. Acceptance, however, doesn't mean I agree. I'm going to try to persuade you still.
This, then, brings me to the end and what I hope and pray is a beginning. I really believe God is trying to reveal Himself to humanity. Maybe it would be better to say He is trying to reveal Himself to each human. Some have said that He could do a better, more dramatic job if He's God after all. I'll have to concede this point. It doesn't always make sense to me either but I don't even understand why other humans do what they do. I guess it's not surprising that I don't always understand why God does what He does. On the other hand, what about those instances in your life that don't easily yield to happenstance. Have you encountered a circumstance that seemed a little "too neat?" Have you learned enough about our natural world to see that, as my high school chemistry teacher used to say, "it almost looks like someone designed this system?" Have you felt the gentle pull toward belief? Sure you could explain it away. What if it's true? What if the pull is not two masses drawing each other in but the pull of a Father for his child?
