A challenge to agnostics & athiests

I came across this one-month challenge to agnostics and atheists and thought I’d pass it on.

Here’s the challenge. Every night say this prayer, “God, if you’re real, prove yourself real to me.” Then read three chapters from the book of John, in the New Testament. This will take less than 10 minutes.

The book of John is 21 chapters long. It’ll take one week to go through the whole book. In one month, you’ll have gone through the book four times. After one month, you can drop the exercise.

I realize that agnostics and atheists will be very uneasy to try this and will likely dismiss it out of hand. I therefore, ask those that call themselves Christian to try it.

Ah shoot. Forget it. I know you’re not going to try this. Just stick this in the back of your mind. Consider it food for thought.
