Does God Exist?
For many people, the questions posed by faith and the existence of a higher, divine being are some of the most complicated and long-lasting queries they will have in their life.
Who or what you believe in depends on a variety of factors. First, there is the society or area we’re brought up with, along with the dominant beliefs and faith systems there. Next, there’s our family, and while their opinions may differ, they often impart on us their religious practices from an early age. Many times, seeing their beliefs in respect to how they act and treat others is very formative in terms of our own feelings later on. Another factor is the mood of our generation, the friends we make, the people we work with, the music we listen to, and the books we read. Lastly, there are life events, often traumatic or wonderful, that can convince us one way or another that something or someone greater does exist.
But for New Zealand-based Christian minister and evangelist, all that you need to prove that there’s a big man upstairs is a banana.
