And all He asks in return are three things: That we hang on. That we believe. And that we wonder."
In college I had a philosophy course where we studied the existence of God from the perspective of arguments, syllogisms and theories. At the time I thought it was pretty exciting (though tough to grasp some of those abstract meanderings of thought). Then, a situation caused me to question God, and none of those academic exercises from college helped settle the questions and panic.
Billy's right, God cannot be proven in a laboratory or classroom. God is proven more by the actions of his children than by any argument. Jesus said, "A new command I give you: love one another ... All men will know you are my disciples if you love one another." (John 13:34-35).
Baking bread for a hungry family, sitting with a sick friend, holding the hand of a scared child, and extending forgiveness to a sinner reflects the spirit and nature of God. It also confirms his existence to one who questions.
