Proven Fact

Atheist arguments, Christianity has proofs, Science does not contradict the Bible

I wrote a devotion about the presence of God in creation, conscience, and character called "On the Boat." 

An atheist commented: "Consider the fact that: 1. Nobody has seen god  2.The only evidence exists in an ancient book  3.Science, which is proven, contradicts a lot in that book." 

Let's look at her points: 

1. Nobody has seen the wind but we believe in it because we see things moving. In the same way, we can see God move in people, cultures and events. 

2. Evidence for God exists in the faith of millions throughout history. It's found in changed lives and transformed cultures. And the Bible, that "ancient book," is itself an evidence having more proof for validity than any other book in history.* 

3. Proven science and history support the Bible. It's unproven scientific theories like evolution that seek to discredit Scripture. 

But there is one proven fact: The world's wisdom misleads people. God's wisdom saves people (1Corinthians 1:18-31).

* For detailed info about this read "How Do We Know the Bible is True?" -  "Is the Bible truly God's Word?"

I encourage you to read "On the Boat" to see why God says unbelievers are "without excuse."

  1. Great post! The fact that people died for their faith is also very moving evidence too. We are really into creation in our home and the more you learn, the more God is VERY evident. Also, so much of the Bible that historians claim never existed (geographical locations, etc), is also making itself known proving once again that Scripture can be trusted.

    1. Yes, JES, you are so right--the martyrs are another evidence of the reality of God and the way He offers a belief worth dying for.
      And, you're right about the historical evidence too. There have been "authorities" who've claimed that certain places (mentioned in the Bible) never existed. Then, years later, they discover proofs of those places in ancient documents.
      Thanks for your added insights.

  2. I love this one. I'm having struggles with my former boyfriend's attitude: he is doing whatever he wants, and he is misled in many painful ways :( world's "wisdom" vs. God's wisdom - how sad that so little realise the difference.

    1. Yes, Zsuzsanna, It is sad how many are mislead by worldly wisdom. I pray your former boyfriend will find the truth.
      God bless you,

  4. Thank you for this post! I have never personally "dealt with" atheists, but I'm glad to come across this! It's very interesting that an atheist was on your blog... I hope she was there because she was looking (consciously or not) for something different than what she knew! She definitely would have found it here! :)

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth, for the kind words.
      This was actually a comment on Pinterest. I seem to get atheist comments more regularly on Pinterest than anywhere else I post my devotions. I pray that some of them will think these things through.
      God bless,
      Gail

  5. I had to share on Twitter and G+. I can never seem to come up with the right arguments when people challenge my beliefs. I'm going to remember that one about the wind! Thank you. (My dad is an atheist and we frequently get into "discussions".)
