Who wants some truth!?

What would you do if you were faced with deciding which of the 33,820 different types of Christianity has the one true gospel of Jesus Christ? Or perhaps choosing between the other millions of religions, denominations and branch-offs that exist and worship? You alone had to find the right answer for any hope of comfort and peace in this world and in the world to come. What do you do? I suppose you can meticulously study each religion and their texts and everything about them. Ranging from their origins and their history down to the present hour, but let's be honest here. With a tremendous effort you might be able to understand and come to a real decision on maybe 50 religions in a lifetime of real thorough study. Well maybe you can ask someone. You have scholars of every religion you could ask. You could ask Pastors, Priests, Rabbis, and leaders from all religions, but you would still have to make a decision. Feel like this task might be a little overwhelming? Ah, but there is hope because there is one more Person you could ask. This would be God, the Creator, the Being whom we all are trying to find out. Maybe They, whoever God may be, would give you an answer. Well, that's really the only method that would work. Who better to go to, to find out which religion is the correct one, than the actual Creator?

So you might be wondering what does this have to do with anything? Well, it has to do with every thing! This is the truth of EVERYTHING! Have people not been in a quest to find out and understand God and the truth since the beginning of the Earth's and man's origination? I mean this is the truth, reality, the facts. To know if God is. To know if there is actually something to believe in and live for. To know that all those stories we hear about God aren't just made to bring hollow hope and fictitious faith to the hearts of the gullible. To know that there is a Greater Being out there. Well, I can attest that this is the only way to know if there is a God. It's not going to come through archaeological findings, carbon dated things, or through hearing the good word. Yes not even through studying the Bible or Book of Mormon will one come to know that God is, they'll be exposed to ideas or beliefs about God, but the only way you can come to know if God is, is by Divine Manifestation. Only through prayer and seeking for an answer, will you come to know. I know that there is a God not because I  come to the conjecture on my own or because I read it somewhere in a book, but because I have sought Him through sincere and humble prayer and have received a witness more vivid and real than sight.
