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.

My agenda

It's not my ultimate goal to convert anyone to theism. This is because I am convinced that all sane humanity is theistic to some degree. The existence of creation tells a rational mind that there is a Creator (Romans 1:20). Argument over. The alternative is to become a fool and believe that there was no Creator and what surrounds us isn't a "creation."

Here's your dilemma. You are standing on the edge of a plane, 10,000 feet in the air. I scream to you amidst the noise to put your parachute on. Your comeback is that you don't believe that the plane you are standing on could have had a maker. But my goal isn't to have you acknowledge that the plane was made, but that you put on the parachute that's being offered to you (see Romans 13:14).

How can I convince you to do that? I can show you how you have violated the moral Law. Go through the Sermon on the Mount and examine your life in the light of "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust for her has committed adultery in his heart." Think about how God is moral perfection and how He sees your thought-life. Consider the Law that you must face--a law that is far harsher than the unforgiving law of gravity from 10,000 feet.

Consider how you could "jump" today. Approximately 150,000 people will die in the next 24 hours. You could be one of them. You have no guarantee of tomorrow. Imagine if God lost patience with you and your godless beliefs. I'm appealing to your God-given fear. It's your friend, not your enemy. Open the Bible, and make Psalm 51 your prayer. Please, think about your sins, think about the cross. Jesus took your punishment upon Himself so your case could be dismissed.

I have said it many times that the issue with the skeptic (or the "believer" who refuses to be obedient) is moral, not intellectual. We don't need convincing of God's existence, we need convincing of our terrible danger. I care enough to warn you. See Colossians 1:28.
