If God wanted us to believe in him, why doesn’t he give us more evidence?

Here is a short summary of the hiddenness of God issue by Wintery Knight. I love this topic. By Wintery Knight

Have you ever heard someone say that if God existed, he would give us more evidence? This is called the “hiddenness of God” argument. It’s also known as the argument from “rational non-belief”.

Basically the argument is something like this:

1.) God is all powerful

2.) God is all loving

3.) God wants all people to know about him

4.) Some people don’t know about him

5.) Therefore, there is no God.

You may hear have heard this argument before, when talking to atheists, as in William Lane Craig’s debate with Theodore Drange, (audio, video).

Basically, the atheist is saying that he’s looked for God real hard and that if God were there, he should have found him by now. After all, God can do anything he wants that’s logically possible, and he wants us to know that he exists. To defeat the argument we need to find a possible explanation of why God would want to remain hidden when our eternal destination depends on our knowledge of his existence.
