If you read the Bible from beginning to end, you might be surprised to find out that there is hardly any effort spent trying to prove God exists. There isn’t anyone in the Bible who doesn’t believe there’s a God—not one person. There are plenty of people who worship God the wrong way, or worship the wrong god entirely—but there are no atheists. The wisdom literature talks about “fools” who live their lives and act like there’s no God—and the world has always been filled with fools—but the Word of God doesn’t spend any time trying to convince them that there’s a God. It gets right to the point—Genesis Chapter one, verse one: In the beginning GOD. The Bible starts at the same place we all do: Everyone knows in their heart that God exists. So, the question is, “Who is God? What is God? And what does it have to do with us?”

Combined!
