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.

Testable evidence

"God is not based upon observable, testable evidence. He is based upon faith. With God we are unable to make predictions and test them to see if they are correct." Rabbitpirate

That is not true. Creation is "observable" evidence of the existence of God to all but a fool (not my words--See Psalm 14:1). God is not "based upon faith." Such a thought is ridiculous. His existence or non-existence has nothing to do with whether or not I have faith. As with human relationships, the means of exchange between God and Mankind is based on trust (faith).

Anyone can make the prediction that God will manifest Himself to them, and then they can test the prediction to see if it is valid. There are two stipulations when coming to God. First, you must believe that He exists. That makes sense. Why would anyone come to God if they didn't believe He existed. Again, in the light of creation, such a person would be a fool. And the second stipulation is that we have a humble heart. God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble. If you are a proud person, you have already cut yourself off from God by your sins. However, all those who humble themselves, repent, and trust in Jesus Christ come to know Him who is "life eternal."

It's that simple.
