'HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD?'

"Who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God" - ( 1 Peter 1:21)
.
There are several means through which people know God or believe in His existence. Some, through religion, culture, science or their encounter with life challenges. 
.
The means through which you believe in God has a lot to do with your disposition about God, life and the transformation that such means does to you.
.
Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father (John 14:6) other ways seem right but their end is destruction (Prov. 14:12). The Holy Spirit through the writer of the Gospel of John said that for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son...(John 3:16).
.
Many have bypassed Jesus to claim access to the Father and this would lead them to a life prone to destruction and everlasting damnation.
.
God didn't give us religion nor did He create culture. Religion and culture evolved after man fell out of God's agenda. The only thing He gave was Jesus!
.
Every of God's dealing with mankind in the OT and Jesus' life in the NT was to establish one thing - reconciling mankind to Himself. He said to Abram, "Get you out of your country, kindred and father's house...(Gen. 12:1). And Jesus even said, "He's the Way, Truth and Life; no one comes to the Father except by Him" (John 14:6).
.
He did not say come to a religious system or denomination. No sir! Come directly to Him and He will give you rest.
.
Through what means do you believe in God? Any belief that puts Jesus out will land you in destruction and in hell.
