Of all the significant questions pertaining to human existence, none is more crucial than whether the God of the Bible exists. If He does exist, all human beings are obligated to come to a knowledge of His will and render obedience to Him. Those who fail to do so will face eternal punishment (2 Corinthians 5:10-11). If, on the other hand, the God of the Bible does not exist, human behavior remains a matter of subjective, human inclination. Atheist and theist meet in this historic confrontation.
