It is a fair question. Why should we believe in the Christian god given so many alternatives? Some of these alternatives are very enticing too. In
the muslim religion you can have 4 wives and if you kill yourself in the service of allah you get a harem of virgins (sex of virgins not specified
lol). In other religions you get to actually become a god, eventually, for example the Mormons.
For me the reasons that the Bible is evidently the correct way, is due first to fulfilled prophecy and second to the actual power displayed by the
power of God and the Holy Spirit, through answered prayer. I have been witnessed to many miracles and so have many of my christians friends,
including things like the dead being raised, demons cast out, miraculous healings, prophetic words etc. These manifestations were all consistent
with the Biblical record. Moreover, having first hand experience with occultic phenomenon, I was able to see the darkness in that path and watch it
being cast out of my life.
But you don't need personal miracles to see God's hand. Just look at the state of Israel. The country should not exist, no ancient country has
been personally resurrected by their God in this way (though perhaps Babylon will by her god, satan).
