If God exists, why doesn’t he make it more obvious? | Episode 3 [Video]

If God exists, why doesn’t he make it more obvious? This question has bothered believers and non-believers alike. We tackle it and more on this episode of Christianity Still Makes Sense. Welcome to the show that loves doubters. On this channel, we are making sense of Christianity by making sense of the doubts that can deconstruct us with near apostate and now Apologist and Pastor Dr. Bobby Conway.When we look at the stories in the Bible, there are times that God has appeared in some seemingly obvious form. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Paul, and several others were exposed to God in such a way, his existence was undeniable. Why don’t all of us, or at least those who doubt God’s existence get the same clear revelation? Well, over the next few weeks, we are going to look at the topic of divine hiddenness. But we are going to do so by addressing two audiences. The first audience is the non-believer. The second is the believer. There are people who fail to believe in God b/c they don’t think it’s obvious enough that God exists. Then there are believers who do believe, but feel ghosted by God as they wonder “God, where are you?” https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/themelios/article/the-god-who-reveals-a-response-to-j-l-schellenbergs-hiddenness-argument/https://crossexamined.org/grappling-with-divine-hiddenness-why-does-god-not-make-his-existence-more-obvious/https://www.wordonfire.org/articles/fellows/the-problem-of-divine-hiddenness-with-dr-travis-dumsday/Visit www.christianitystillmakessense.comIn a world where Christianity no longer makes sense this channel exists to show that it still does.
