What is the difference between an atheist and a Christian?

Both may believe in the Big Bang theory, both may believe that there was matter, force was exerted to make that matter go Bang, explode, that matter grew into more matter that ended up creating the universe, earth, and man. This was the beginning of what we call time. An atheist would acknowledge that there was a time before time began, one second before the “Big Bang”, there was something, a matter at least that then went Bang! Man records the beginning of time from the moment of the “Big Bang.” As God says:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. – Genesis 1:1

There is a “force or energy” that makes things happen, nobody can explain why it happens, why this original matter when bang, why the earth is held a certain distance from the sun and Jupiter or Saturn are held in their place; “the force” just makes it happen. Why does an egg and a sperm create another person or animal? We do not know the why just how. Science does not explain the why just how.

The difference between an atheist and a Christian is that we call that “force’, God and they do not. A Christian believes that “force” is personal and wants a relationship with us, and an atheist does not, they believe there is a force, but that it is impersonal.

You see if that force is non-personal, like living with a robot, you do not need to change for the robot when you share a house with a robot. If it inconveniences you, you just move the robot to where it suits you. The robot is used by you and you do with it what you please. Yet if you live with a person, there is now an accountability for your actions, there are consequences for what you do, (or do not do) with and to that person you live with. You have to change to get a certain outcome.

Human beings do not like that concept, accountability for their life. So it is easier to just not believe there is a God, this allows you to justify selfishness and doing what you want, when you want, to whomever you want to. Yet that also means you should not feel justified in complaining when others treat you badly, as they are merely a bunch of molecules in a random state of evolution from molten rocks to whatever we will eventually be evolved into. After all, what gives one bunch of molecules the right to demand to be treated a certain way by another bunch of molecules not yet fully evolved?

Christians do not believe this. God’s existence does not rely on our belief. He either exists or does not exist. Whether you believe in him or not, does not change his existence, it only changes the outcome of your life.

So how can God prove to us that he exists and that it is provable beyond doubt?

For thousands of years, people have needed no more proof than answered prayers. Think about it, you speak to thin air and things happen, either there is a God answering you or you have become a powerful magician. They can be the only two answers, cause an effect. Yet today, people want scientific proof. So let us deal today with pure facts, indisputable facts that there is a God and the Bible is his words.

[20] Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. [21] For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.  – 2 Peter 1:20-21

[26] This message was kept secret for centuries and generations past, but now it has been revealed to God’s people. [27] For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. – Colossians 1:26-27 NLT

God uses man weakness, a lack of ability to be unified to prove that his word is from him and not man.

The bible is 66 books written by 40 different human authors over a period of some 1500 year span. Most authors never met, they spoke different languages, yet in writing about the common theme of Jesus. His coming, his existence and his impact there is not a single contradiction. This is impossible unless there is not really 40 different authors, but one, that being God, who is using 40 human authors like a writer uses 40 different pens, the pens write the actual words, but the words are his in content.

And the words of the Lord are FLAWLESS, like silver refined in a furnace of clay purified seven times. – Psalm 18:30

The law of the Lord is PERFECT. – Psalm 19:7

The bible stands on this integrity, that it is flawless, perfect. If it is not, it is not true and not to be followed.

How is this scientific proof? Science establishes a truth by conduction an experiment again and again and if the result is the same again and again, they take that result as truth.

If you take two books written by two authors on the same topic and there is no contradiction then you presume they have the same source, then you add a third, fourth, up to 40 different authors. If there is not contradiction, the conclusion would be scientifically that they all come from the same source, in this case God!

LOVE is not Science, God is Love!
Make it a great day!
