Q. How can we confirm the existence of God? Why doesn’t God reveal Himself?

Q. How can we confirm the existence of God? Why doesn’t God reveal Himself?

A. According to the Bible, God is everywhere all the time, God is in us and we are in Him and it is impossible to escape His reach. If the Bible doesn’t tell a lie, we should be able to see and hear Him anytime. Why are we doubtful of His existence now? It is not because God is hiding His existence but because we don’t recognise Him, even though He is always with us. The reason why we don’t recognise Him is that we can’t see things as they really are. We can confirm the existence of God by seeing everything as it is.

The purpose of having a religion, you should know, is not and should not be to pray or make offerings to an unknown god but to confirm the existence of God in person by recognising Him. The former is not religion but merely superstition, which we should not mistake for religion.

 

Student: “Why doesn’t God reveal Himself?”

Master: “Because you are blind.”
