HOW DO I KNOW THAT GOD EXISTS?

Tough questions
I believe God exists simply by looking at the marvels of the things in the universe. We use the word cosmos to refer the universe because this word means orderly universe. The universe is indeed orderly! No one would believe that a watch would fall into place all by itself; yet many people choose to believe that the universe, which is far more intricate, came about by chance. The Bible also appeals to God’s creation as proof of His existence. (Rom 1:20 NIV)  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.Proofs that God exists

We can ask, “Do you know where you will be if your life were to end suddenly?” Share specific examples when people’s life ended abruptly when they least expected. Eg.

I’VE ALWAYS BELIEVED IN GOD OR I GO TO CHURCH REGULARLY

Tough questions
It’s good to hear that you believe in God OR It’s good to hear that you go to church regularly but do you know Jesus as your Savior? The Bible teaches that the only way to God is through Jesus. (John 14:6 NIV)  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. When we go to God through Jesus, it means that we do not rely on other things to save us. We do not rely on our own goodness. The Bible teaches that we are not saved by our good deeds. Salvation is a free gift from God given to those who put their faith entirely on Jesus Christ. (Eph 2:8-9 NIV)  For it is by grace…

Won’t good moral, ethical people go to heaven?

Tough questions
https://youtu.be/jxXvWjPDlLU It is true that we can find many good people, who are good by man’s standards. But God’s standards are not man’s standards. God’s holiness is perfect.

Supposing someone has an IQ of 150, very high indeed, while another who is not so fortunate only has an IQ of 80.
