There is one primary way to determine if the god of the bible exists. My faith isn't intellectual; it is experiential. You can have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Please let me tell a story to illustrate my point.
One day at the University of Chicago Divinity School, a Doctor Paul Tillich came in to speak for two-and-a-half hours trying to prove that the resurrection of Jesus was false. He quoted scholar after scholar, book after book, and concluded that there was no resurrection. He then asked if there were any questions.
After 30 seconds or so, an old preacher stood up at the back. "Docta Tilich, I got one question," he said as he pulled out an apple from his bag and started eating it. "Dochta Tillich, as he munched, my question is simple (munch, munch). Now I ain't never read them books you read (munch, munch). I don't know nothin' about Neibuhr and Heidegger (munch, munch), and I can't recite the Scriptures in the original Greek." He finished the apple. "All I wanna know is: This apple I just ate - was it bitter or sweet?"
Dr. Tillich paused for a moment and answered in exemplary scholarly fashion: "I cannot possibly answer that question, for I haven't tasted your apple." The old preacher dropped the apple core into his crumpled paper bag, looked up at Dr. Tillich and said calmly," Neither have you tasted my Jesus."
"Taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him" (Psalm 34:8).
Even assumed this strory is true, I am sure the rest of the story would have bin this >
Dr. Tillich gave a smile and said >
"The difference, my dear missionary ist that 1) this apple did exist at all, but there is at last 50 percentent possibility that even a historical Jesus never existed
And 2) it is possible for an apple to be sweet or sour, perhaps bitter even. But a Jewish Zombie who is his own father rising from the death is not that possible, so you present no point at all
Suddenly the old Geezer began to choke on his apple because he had swallowed it too hastily, and he would have died of suffocation if not Dr. Tillich had known and used on him the Heimlich Griff
"Tank thou Dochta Tillich." the old preacher muttered"I woulda have choked on that damned Jesus who not even really lived, If not for you saving me from that Jesushoax, saving my very life. At last I am now finally free from that Jewish undead munsta Jesuch Christ
Oh, and muh apple was a cheap coming tasteless thing, muh haff to tell thou. As is that Jesuch from whom zou now have freed me . No more false belief in that Jesuchlie for me, or in thet so called holy bible that Jeewich book of lies
"Happy to were able to be of service, my dear fellow!" Doctor Tillich replied and both men bode each other farewell with greatest delight
