Do you really know?

I met a girl the other day who was arguing with me about the identity of Jesus of Nazareth. Her point was that Jesus was a good man but not Deity incarnate. I asked her "Have you ever prayed to God?" She said "I pray to what I call God". I then asked her "Have you ever tried talking to Jesus?" She said "No".

How can anyone say Jesus is dead or not the Son of God if they have never tried talking to Him? Wouldn't someone who talks to Jesus know of his existence/identity more than someone who doesn't?

PS. God promises "Taste and see that the Lord is good". My interpretation is "Try me, and see that I'm real". I don't think most people want to find out that Jesus is alive because that reminds them that they will be accountable to Him.

Just because someone responds doesn't mean it's the person you think it is.

Even if Jesus Christ were to appear before me, I would not be able to fully know that it had been him who had visited me or even if I had been visited at all. It may have been someone posing as Jesus, it may have been some other deity assuming Jesus's form, or it may have been an illusion or hallucination. In the end, it requires faith to believe - not knowledge.

I used to say the same thing to my parents about my imaginary friend Gunter the German pizza delivery guy....until after the shock treatments.
