Years ago, an ex-atheist began to wonder how she could explain what she had learned about God to people of the mindset that God cannot exist. As a marketer by trade, she considered billboards and a website. Hence, the nonprofit This Is The Wisdom Of God, LLC was formed.
Over time, three billboards went up in the Cleveland area, with brief messages, “teasers” if you will, of God’s character. The latest, “Behold, God saw that it was good,” features a loving picture.
The website itself is easy to read and digest. It answers questions that many of us who grew up in church may not think to ask. It is friendly and infinitely far from preachy.
I recommend https://www.thisisthewisdomofgod.com as a source for curious atheists, agnostics, and believers who want to see Jesus from a fresh point of view.

…Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

I was a christian and am now an atheist. Christians do love to pretend they have evidence and do enjoy making up a “fresh” version of their imaginary god. Unfortunately, they are stuck with the genocidal lunatic in the bible.
Faith is the evidence of things unseen. Faith comes from hearing the Word of God. We are saved by grace through faith, not that we can conjure up but that comes from God. We cannot boast about any “evidence” or “version of God” as if we invented him because everything is from him. We know him, you do not. We are not “stuck with a genocidal lunatic” because we know his love and kindness. This sounds like foolishness to people who do not have the Spirit of God because these things are spiritually discerned. I hope you will remember that he is faithful and his justice will forgive anyone who repents. He is the Father eager for the prodigal to come home.
