"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Let's face it, I have given you five compelling reasons to seriously consider believing in the existence of God. But some people seem to possess a strong desire to believe that life has a purpose, the universe has order and life does not end at death. Others seem to have an equally strong desire to disbelieve in God. The thought of an all-powerful moral Being who created us and Who will demand an accounting from us cramps their style. Dismissing that notion is easier for them than measuring up to it.

When I play golf and go onto a golf course, I subject myself not only to the rules of golf but also to the dictates of that golf club. It is their property and they make the rules of conduct for that course. The USGA makes the rules of golf and I am bound by them. If I want to play by my rules and if I want to conduct myself anyway I wish, then I need to create my own game and my own course.

I know a lot of golfers and have played on a number of courses and I have yet to hear one of them complain it is unfair to follow the rules of golf or that the course expects compliance with their rules.

But some of those same guys will object to being ruled by God and consider God's Word to be irrelevant to them.

Does that seem a bit inconsistent to you? It does to me.

Perhaps it is why some of them enjoy golf but are struggling in life.

If they took God and His Word as seriously are they take golf and the rules of golf they could experience an amazing life transformation!

For those who don't want to believe, these convincing proofs of the existence of God will have little impact. But for those who are seeking truth and open to considering facts, there five reasons to believe in God could be quite convincing.

Are you willing to believe?

Are you ready to be honest to God?
