@Psac, like I said before, if he spoke to us, and I'm not talking about personal revelation. I mean, if he talked to all of us, directly, we would have a degree of objectivity. I know that you exist because I interact with you on the Internet, and others do as well. If someone asks you a question, you answer it. I'm going to bet that you exist because I am not the only one who hears you. Normally, people don't have to try very hard to prove someone exists; it's usually much easier. If God wants people to believe in him, why hide away in another dimension, invisible, imperceptible, and speaking to us indirectly by giving "signs" and "his word" and only talking to SOME of us? The mere fact that so many atheists exist in the world (and given that their atheism is based on rationality), raises serious questions as to why God only talks to people selectively, especially people WHO ALREADY believe in him. What we expect shapes what we see.
That is a valid view point, and indeed, like I mentioned before, it certainly would make a statement.
I have to be honest and say that I don't think it would make the statement most people say it would UNLESS God came in like a "gangbuster".
I know that you don't see the bible as an authority, but lets use it for just a moment and realise that, God did do just that in the OT and what good did that do? Did the Hebrews, even thought they had no doubts of his existence and had even seen his miracles up close and personal, keep his laws? obey his commandments? or did they, the first chance they got, "build a golden calf and hit the orgy scene?".
How about Revelations? How afer 1000 years of being with God and Christ SOME will still revolt?
Not to mention when he walked amongst Us as His Son we did we do?, well....
I agree with you that God taking the initiative would make things easier for Most non-believers ( I think a certain element would probably satill not believe), but I don't think God "sees it that way" and, historry being what it is, God is probably right.
I don't think that it is an issue of God WANTING us the believe in Him, IF God exists I don't think our disbelief makes that much of a difference for his existence.
I think that God wants us to come to him out of free will by faith, not blind faith, but by faith in what he DOES show us.
I just think that, for some, what God does show us is NOT nearly enough.
