In a recent article on BillyGraham.org, the elderly evangelist is asked by an atheist for one reason why he should consider believing in God. The reader asserts that he grew up in a religious family but "outgrew all that years ago." Graham's answer is fantastic. "I could give you many reasons to believe in God," Graham writes. "But the most important one can be put into two words: Jesus Christ."
Graham explains how gaining an understanding of the character of Jesus is utterly essential to a belief in God. "Why do I say this? The reason is because once you understand who Jesus is, you’ll never doubt God’s existence again," writes Graham. "You see, the Bible says that Jesus Christ was not just a great man; He was God in human flesh. In other words, when you look at Jesus, you are looking at God."
"For over two thousand years, millions of Christians have believed it is. But they have believed it because they have discovered Jesus’ life and teachings - and most of all, they have discovered the truth concerning His death for us and His resurrection from the dead," writes Graham. The world-renowned evangelist personally encourages the reader to explore the gospels and find Jesus for himself. "I urge you to read with an open mind and heart the eyewitness accounts of His life, as they are found in the Gospels of the New Testament," he writes.
"When you do, you’ll discover not only that God is real, but that He loves you and wants to change your life. More than that, you’ll discover that because of Christ we have hope - hope for today, and hope for life beyond the grave. “In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind” (John 1:4)."
