Would you believe in God if He showed up at your door? Maybe. Maybe not. It depends on the nature of the supernatural event and also on a number of other factors. Richard Dawkins says he probably wouldn’t believe. Historically, God has used miracles numerous times to reveal Himself, and many have believed, but many have also not believed.
Even if God showed up at your door and you started believing in Him, that is not enough to give you eternal life. But consider this: God did show up on the earth (in the person of Jesus Christ) and worked many miracles, and although the world still dates history by His supernatural birth, some skeptics still refuse to accept any documentation or biblical evidence for His resurrection (Acts 1:3). Jesus was born of a virgin, but they accused him of being an illegitimate child (John 8:41). The wise men followed a star that pointed to the exact location of the Christ child (Matthew 2:9), but Herod wanted to kill Him. In radiant glory, angels announced His birth to the shepherds, but He died in naked shame on a cross.
There is plenty of evidence for God’s existence in the creation and every person already knows that God exists. Skeptics suppress that knowledge, their understanding of the evidence, and their own consciences in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18–32; 2:14–16). Christians should continue using such evidence and arguments in their biblical apologetics as they witness for Christ. But God (Jesus Christ) has already knocked on the world’s door, and many did not listen. They have explained Him away as a good teacher (John 3:2; 7:12), a crazy man (John 7:20), or a deceiver (John 7:12). Approximately 2,000 years later, times have not changed very much (Ecclesiastes 1:9–10) and neither has the heart of man (Jeremiah 17:9).
