When Jesus Christ lived, preached and worked miracles no one was prepared to believe HIM. HE was badly scourged, mercilessly beaten up and crucified.
The disciples who lived with HIM, walked with HIM, heard HIM preaching, saw HIM working miracles, witnessed HIS crucifixion, and HIS ascension to Heaven started preaching the message of Christ no one believed them. They were mercilessly put to death. St.Thomas came all the way to India to be martyred.
So if Jesus is to come back again in human form and start preaching, no one will believe HIM and HE will be shot to death.
If we can’t believe in the existence of God by looking around us and expect a miracle to happen in front of our eyes, we are going to be disappointed.
Faith is above science and proof. It is something which we feel deep within our heart and we don’t need proof. Besides we can’t convince some one against his or her will. And it is pointless to prove the existence of God to someone who refuses to believe.
Here are two interesting comments to test your faith. If you have a strong faith, it will become stronger. If you have a weak faith, it will become weaker. I assure you my faith has become stronger.

Since I am not a Christian and raised by parents who believed in God, but not religion, I feel this man would not have given up religion because his prayers were not answered. He didn't convert and join another religion in the hope of gaining something - material or spiritual. Instead, he is finding solace in the nature itself.
Is there any point in calling oneself a Christian, if the mind is full of greed, hatred, and such negative feelings? Wouldn't world be a better place if there are more people who believe in good deeds than religion?
I am not against Christianity, but I am not for any religion. I prefer to believe in the goodness of human beings. :)
Religion is a man made creation, not Divine. Not to glorify God, but to exalt man and justify their actions. Look down through the ages at how many people have been killed in the name of religion. I debated long with myself in using the word killed in the above statement. At first I was going to use the word died, but to me it weaken my point. The other word I considered which is closer to my thoughts on the matter is murdered. So for the sake of diplomacy all these people where killed. It sounds so much nicer than murdered in the name of religion
So what am I saying, I don't believe in God... Nothing could ssbe further from the truth. For the lack of a better word to define the existence of an undefinable entity, GOD is my closest choice
