It all comes down to if the bible is true or untrue. People can debate it all day long. You can quote bible verses all day at me. But in the end, prove to me that God really wrote it through ordinary men and the content is accurate. You can't.
I grew up in a Christian home, graduated from a private Christian school. When I think for myself, it's very hard to believe. But it's also very hard to believe that this universe just created itself out of nothing. Or perhaps maybe it was just always there, there was no beginning. That is after all how God became. It's a crapshoot.
If they somehow discover life on another planet, can you imagine how the Christians will respond? It would making life really interesting!
The Bible talks about God being our father, our dad.
Maybe you are a father.
Let us say you have two children and they want something from you.
Child #1 I want you to give me my inheritance now, while I can still enjoy it. I figure you're worth at least a million bucks and half of it is mine. I am 18. Give it to me now or I will make your life a mess. If you give it to me, I will be gone and you'll never hear from me again. I don't like your rules and frankly I don't like you. Give me an answer tomorrow by noon.
Child #2 Dad, I wanted to thank you for giving me a great childhood and giving me the opportunity to go to a good school. You have been very good to me and I am thankful. As you know, I am 18 and I have decided to go out on my own. I have a great idea that I will share with you about opening up a business. I need your help and I am willing to do whatever is necessary to be successful. I know you have more knowledge than I do and I want you to teach me along the way. I want you to be part of my life because frankly, I love you.
Which child will be accepted?
In other words, humble yourself and ask your father to show you the truth. The key words are HUMBLE YOURSELF before God. I cannot imagine a loving father turning his back on a child that humbly comes to him for help. God IS a loving father.
 And I say unto you, Ask
, and it shall be given you; seek
, and ye shall find; knock
, and it shall be opened unto you.
 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
