believing in god

Religous Upbringing- christians taught and baptised at young age ,pray, go to church and sunday school. Religion handed down through generarions and leaning about him at home

Religious experience, might convince peopel god exists without a religous upbringing , numinous experience felt by looking at something and feeling gods power, prayer is a personal way to communicate with god , miricales convince god does exist surving near death experiences ,conversion when people belive they have experienced god and want to comit to there life

Desing argument, William Paley had an argument that if a watch was found by someone who did not know whta is was they would be amazed, all the little tiny mechanisims must be made by a designer and not by acident , Paley said this was that same theory for the universe, it must have been made by a designer and not by accident , god must of been the designer

Causation argument- things dont happend by themselfs if the universe has a begining then something must have caused it it did not happen by accident so something must have casued it and brought to exsitance , god did this 

Scientific theory, Big band , evolution christains respond to this by god controlled these things taking place also science and bilbe are both correct in the 7 days part 

Unansweres prayers, if god was really there all prayers would be answered eg poverty it gives christians false hope 

Moral evil- actions done by humans which cause suffering , natural evil- suffering but has nothing to do with humans e.g. earthquakes 

How christians respon to evil and suffering - god created people with free will , to some christians life is a test for the after life , other say that 'God works in mysterious ways humans cant understand'
