If God revealed himself to a much greater degree?
My question is not meant to call into light the degree of which he has revealed Himself. I’m hoping not to get answers of the variety;
the beauty of the creation, love, objective good etc. I don’t dispute these issues, these revelations. Yet they can, and have been argued since the beginning of time as to whether they are God’s revelation or, from the atheist perspective, a by product of evolution.
My question, admittedly seemingly silly (yet I ask with all seriousness) why hasn’t he revealed Himself in a indisputable manner? I realize there are hardcore atheists who would dispute nearly everything but I fail to see what the secret is. Why can’t (or more to the point; won’t) God reveal Himself in a manner such as moving Mount Everest to a different country, alphabetically every 10 years.
The obvious answer is He calls us to faith. My ignorance asks why? Why does He ask us to believe with a limited degree of revelation? It would not disable our free will. We would still be able to accept or reject Him. He could still read our hearts.
Frankly, why the mystery? What is the purpose?
