At a time when there’s so much uncertainty, dejection, dread, and disappointment around us, it may become more challenging than usual for some people to hold onto faith. It’s important to note that this situation should be handled with care.

People are often quick to judge and hold the other person accountable for struggling to believe in God. This approach can do more harm than good. Instead of being “called out,” people should be “called in.” If a friend, family member, or colleague recently asked you for proof that God exists, make sure you unpack their question.

Understand that curiosity and skepticism are normal and valid feelings. Humans are collectively on a journey towards learning, unlearning, and relearning. Nobody is born perfect; we all become better versions of ourselves as we’re exposed to new ideas, thoughts, and practices.
In this blog, we’ll offer a closer look at how to respond to the request for proof regarding God’s existence. Continue reading.

1. Understand What Prompted Them to Ask the Question

Before you attempt to provide proof for God’s existence, we strongly recommend taking some time to understand what prompted the person to ask this question. If it’s a close friend or family member, you’ll already have some idea of where their skepticism is arising from.

It’s possible that they recently lost a loved one and can’t seem to understand why God would create such a set of circumstances for them. It’s also possible that they don’t feel connected to God.

This is an age-old struggle that is experienced by everyone who’s learning about the Almighty. We’re all given countless opportunities to develop an understanding about the concept of divinity. As we embark on this journey, we attempt to sort out the many complications pertaining to what the divine realm is all about and what the existence of God really means.

The elusiveness of the Divine is the greatest burden and liability to belief one can imagine. The Divine is not visible in the environment as something that can be seen, heard, touched, and interacted with. Having a strong belief from the get-go is like being asked to have an imaginary friend one must believe in fully to gain the most from the partnership. This sounds unsettling as the friend doesn’t have a physical form. It’s too great a leap of faith for many, many individuals.

This is quite unfortunate because there’s so much to be gained from a divine partnership when belief is present. Trust in the Divine invites positive change and healing in a person’s life. However, faith doesn’t come easy. Attempt to dig deeper and uncover why the person is struggling to believe, and shape your argument accordingly. An individualized approach will help them believe in the existence of God.

2. Encourage the Person to Believe in Themselves First

In many cases, people ask for proof of God’s existence because they struggle to cultivate belief in themselves. By asking people for proof, they’re seeking the validation that they lack. Becoming aware of this facet is extremely important.

When people start recognizing and valuing their own capabilities, recognizing and valuing the capabilities of God becomes easier for them. In other words, self-belief often prompts belief in God.

3. Highlight Miracles

There are many stories of miracles. You may have your own set of miracles that can be shared with people. By narrating small-scale, personal miracles and large-scale, well-known miracles, you can ignite a spark of faith in the person.
In many cases, believers seek extra reassurance because their belief quotient feels shaky. As you share stories about healing, guidance, support, and strength offered by the Divine, you’ll manage to replenish their belief quotient.

As stated earlier, understanding the person’s mindset is imperative. It’s possible that some people are strong disbelievers. They may be asking for proof to attack your argument and affect your faith. In such cases, be wary of the person’s intention. Don’t fall into their trap.
As a rule of thumb, you should be open to having a fruitful conversation with people who are willing to hear you out, respect your opinions, and take away something substantial from the conversation.

If the person is closed off, confrontational, and unwilling to attentively and patiently listen to you, don’t bother wasting your time. Disengage from the conversation and move on. You’ll intuitively know who’s genuinely seeking reassurance and guidance and who’s approaching you for an argument.
