Like others have said, and I appreciate the defense... I don't think that Bible Student is comparing himself to Moses or Muhammad or something. But, the point is, many believers feel that the reason non-believers don't believe... is that we just haven't done the work. We haven't prayed. We haven't sought. We haven't tried. We've been close minded.
At the same time, most believers claim to have had some kind of personal experience with God... when I used to be a believer, and I attended post-service Bible studies, we had these things called "Only God" moments, where, everyone would go around and point out how God was working in their lives. For example, if you were delayed at work, and there was an accident on the highway you take home, the person might say, "God saved me from death in a car accident." And, that's their "proof" of God.
I feel that it's not a humble position. It's "God saved me, but he didn't save the people who died." It's implied... "I have a special cosmic purpose that God kept me alive for."
Whatever your God moment... just because I'm not willing to shoehorn random coincidences and human driven events into a cosmic plan, it doesn't mean I'm not open to actual proof of something supernatural.
But as many here have said, it would take extraordinary proof... not just shoddy eye-witness testimony by people long dead recorded decades after the fact.
With regards to your last sentence, is that the extent of the evidence you have sought out...the Bible? I suspect your comment contains hyperbole and that you examined evidence outside of the Bible??
You have a super-sensitivity to any semantic errors or exaggeration on the part of a non-believer, but seemingly little sensitivity to when believers exaggerate or invent the role of God in their lives... but, I'll bite.
In addition to being a believer for 3+ decades, and a re-baptized born-again for 2+ decades, and having attended Bible Studies, church services, read the Bible, listened to apologists like William Lane Craig, went to Christian concerts, volunteered at church charitable events, and prayed my tail off... I've also explored miraculous claims by the Catholic Church and faith healers and claims of medical miracles.
Jeanna Giese was the first girl to survive rabies without having been given a vaccine. She tried to save a bat that had fallen to the floor in church, was bitten, and didn't realize she had contracted rabies. By the time they figured it out, it was advanced. Her family and church all prayed for her, and she survived! It's a miracle! Even the start of the video calls it a "medical miracle" and, that's the point where believers stop listening.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdPuXHhEwDk
But if you actually follow the story, what really happened is a radical new treatment was devised to keep Jeanna in a coma and prevent the virus from being able to advance up the nervous system until Jeanna's body could begin to fight the virus. The body can fight rabies, but, it kills the person before the body can get it's defenses up. A combination of radical treatments, radical anti-virals, and the top doctors at her hospital and the CDC all combined to throw low-probability chance Jeanna's way. Jeanna had to learn how to walk and talk again, and is still not the same as she was prior to the infection.
Her recovery took nearly a full agonizing year, and, again, she's not fully recovered... she was a high school athlete, highly fit, highly active, with a great immune system.
To believers, God stepped in and "did a miracle". But ignore the fact that doctors nearly killed Jeanna just to put her in the deepest coma with drugs, and the poor girl wasn't "healed miraculously".
Sure, a long and torturous, emotionally painful recovery, with a lower quality of life forever, is better than death... but, there's nothing involved in Jeanna's cure that requires God. All of the actual things that cured Jeanna were from human beings and science and her own young, previously healthy body.
I've googled stories of miracles, and, I've never found one that doesn't follow this pattern where... something horrific happens, someone barely survives, a believer praises God, and all of the awfulness and negative side effects and human effort are just crapped on and ignored by believers. You got your "proof" and you can ignore the tragedy and move on.
When someone avoided going to work on 9-11... IT'S A MIRACLE! But when thousands die needlessly in a terrorist act, it's human sin. Why didn't God warn everyone to stay home sick? Because all of these claimed miracles aren't miracles at all? Or because God has to be a sneaky sneak? Or because God has special plans for certain people who are just way more important than others?
When a wildfire rages through a neighborhood, and spares one house... IT'S A MIRACLE! But the other 99 houses that burn down, and the children who died screaming in a fire... those are ignored. Or it's just blown off... "God has called home his little angels."
I wish... I really wish, you would stop and consider how selfish and arrogant it is to take tragedy... take any slice of positive news from it... and slap a "GOD MIRACLE" label on it to sooth your own doubts, and then ignore the actual tragic consequences.
When Jesus walked on water... did he use a scientifically designed paddle board?
When Jesus cured the sick... did he do it with 2 years of painful medical procedures, drugs, and therapy?
When Jesus rose from the dead... was he newly flat-lined in a hospital, with nurses and doctors using paddles and CPR to keep his heart going?
I'll answer for you... "NO"
But there is very little supporting evidence for Jesus outside of the Bible. Two historians barely mention him, and don't mention his miracles or that he came back from the dead.
I encourage you to listen to Jeanna struggle to talk about her rabies experience, because her voice his slow and slurred, and how much pain and fear she suffered during her therapy. I feel horrible for this girl. I'm glad she's alive, but yet, her lifetime of lower quality of life is the direct result of this girl trying to perform an act of kindness in church. There's a clip of how her "voice used to be". The family of course, struggles to be grateful, because she's alive and not dead. But a real loving god doesn't strike a kid with rabies for trying to perform a good deed in church. A god who'd allow that is a horrific monster. The same god did nothing to save Jeanna... it was the doctors and scientists and her immune system that did that.
Jeanna and her parents, being of faith, naturally credit all this to God, fair enough I wouldn't argue with them because she's suffered unfairly enough... but for most believers, you see a headline about some girl who had a miracle, and you just accept it without even looking into it. Then, you act "better" than non-believers because you've accepted on faith, claims that don't hold up to scrutiny. No matter how long I tried to be faithful, no matter how much I've read, no matter how much I've listened to apologists and read on CARM.org... the only way it would be "enough" for you is if I believe exactly like you do. Until I have your faith, I didn't "do enough reading" or "listen to God working in my life". You won't even consider that actual GOOD proof would convince me, and it's the lack of this that is the problem.
If you want to accept claims that don't hold up to scrutiny, that's on you... that's not my shortcoming, that's your shortcoming.
If you want to accept claims that don't have a proportionate amount of excellent evidence, again, that's not my shortcoming.
It's arrogant to assume that your lack of requirement of reliable information is a weakness of other people. It's arrogant to assume that you're specifically chosen by God to have had some kind of interaction that solidified your faith, but the rest of us didn't... or we "ignored ours" so, therefore, nothing less than eternal torture will do.
Your God is LOVE, so, nothing less than eternal torture will "learn me" to believe unproven mythical claims. (no contradiction there right?)
