Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Why Doesn't God Say Something?

"Why do you suppose God needs people to speak for him? Why can't your God speak for himself? Audibly? Where I and everybody else in the room can hear him?"

He did speak audibly to Israel when He gave the Ten Commandments, and the Bible says that Israel was so fearful they pleaded that He no longer speak to them. He did speak on the Mount of Transfiguration and terrified the disciples. When He spoke audibly to Jesus, the people thought that they heard thunder. So why didn't God just whisper on these occasions? Perhaps He did.

However, God (in His infinite wisdom) has chosen what the Bible calls "the foolishness of preaching" to speak to humanity. He has condescended to use man to deliver the message of everlasting life to man. There you have it--the offer of everlasting life. Take it or leave it.
