The biggest divide between Christians and atheists is not their views about God's existence, but their beliefs about His character.
An ant could never understand anything about us, so why would we think we could understand something about God?
God isn't just an egomaniac. Our praise is right, good, and joy-giving. Why would God want us to praise and worship Him? This is a question I hear every so often since we immediately assume that a person who demands praise is a pompous big-head. I think there are many Christians out there who secretly wonder about this—afraid to ask the question (lest they be thought unspiritual), but bothered all the same.
If the God of the Bible didn’t do what you think a real God would have done, that doesn’t prove He doesn’t exist; you might just be missing something. It’s the temptation of some who reject the reality of God’s existence to use the following kind of reasoning as part of their evidence: “If the Christian God were real, He would [X].

Some atheists say that if God exists, He should show Himself to everyone so they can believe in Him and not go to Hell. Should a good God do this? I've heard atheists say that the best thing God could do would be to reveal Himself openly so that everyone could believe in Him, do what He wants, and not go to Hell.

Why does the argument for a first cause of the universe conveniently stop with God? Where did God come from? I was asked once by an atheist, “Why does the argument for a first cause of the universe conveniently stop with God? Where did God come from?”
To believe in miracles, we have to believe an immaterial God can move things in the world. Is that unreasonable?
Do you feel unmotivated or hopeless when it comes to prayer? Do you feel spiritually dead? God is the God who gives life where it doesn't now exist.
If God is sovereign over history, why should we pray? Does it makes sense to pray for things since God has already sovereignly planned history from beginning to end?
