So You Want Proof?

An atheist wrote in with a question about a recent post: I have posted the question here along with a request to engage her about her beliefs as an atheist. I thought that our readers would be interested as well. I will keep you up to date. Please pray that God will use this opportunity to bring honor to his name.

"Can you prove that we're all going to stand face to face with Jesus Christ one day? (And the Bible doesn't count as proof, since you can't prove that it's anything more than an extremely old book of mythology.) Or will you admit that your beliefs are based on nothing more than blind faith, just like the beliefs of a Muslim, a Hindu, a Sikh, a Jew, or any other religious person, which means that there's no way that you can possibly know that your beliefs are any sort of truth?"

My response:

The uniqueness of the Bible is directly tied to its message. You want me, and others to believe that your assertions are true simply because you say them. You want me to offer proof of my beliefs when you offer no proof for your position except that you say it is so. You are claiming there is no God, no standard of ethics, no sense of right and wrong unless you approve. Where is your proof?
