 Reasons To Believe

“they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of Yahweh, They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them; But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, And will be secure, without fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:24-33

Other Religions
Since most, if not all religions, contradict one another on critical issues, it is impossible for all of them to be right.. A look at some of the world’s major religions

And The Godless

Atheism
To claim you know there is no God is to claim you have exhaustively searched every part of every universe and dimension with an infallibly accurate method of detecting every non-physical entity that could possibly exist. (Several Articles)

Evolution
Many believe in evolution for the simple reason that they think science has proven it to be a ‘fact’ and, therefore, it must be accepted.
 

Modern Thinking

World Views
A world view is a set of presuppositions (or assumptions) which we hold (consciously or subconsciously) about the basic makeup of our world. Permissiveness, pornography, the public schools, the breakdown of the family is only a part of the whole, a symptom of a much larger problem. People have failed to see that all of this has come about due to a shift in the world view - that is, through a fundamental change in the overall way people think and view the world and life as a whole.

Postmodernism
has encroached on Western society/the church. It professes "Openness" (without the restraint of
reason) and "tolerance" that rejects all moral absolutes, A brand of thought that has dominated America’s "politically correct" universities for over a decade..  What are the dangers and impact of this worldview.

Pluralism
It is tragically true that few of those who believe 'all spiritual beliefs are valid paths to God" seem to have made an in depth study of various religions to see if their claims are based on fact, or fairy dust. This simply because many, if not most, people seem to believe that religion is a matter of what you believe, and 'faith' has nothing to do with reality. Whether you have thought about it or not, whether you are willing to face it or not, the simple fact is... if two religions make truth-claims which contradict each other, they cannot both be right. As one example among many, when one religion says there is no God, another claims there is only one God, and others say there are many gods ... someone doesn't have their facts straight and that means they cannot be trusted to show you the path to God. Whether we realize it or not, we literally make dozens of decisions every day, based on evidence and facts, not feelings. Why are we not doing the same with religion?
