Agnostics Anonymous ... But God Isn't

J. Jackson here again. I was corresponding with an agnostic recently who asked why God doesn't give us more evidence for His existence. I pointed out six things I feel God gave mankind to lead us to Him:
1. A conscience.
"Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness ..." (Romans 2:14-15a)
"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." (Romans 1:20)
3. The Bible, the most-published book in history.
"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness ..." (Timothy 3:16)
4. The Holy Spirit.
"When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me ... When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:" (John 15:26, 16:8)
5. Testimonies of those who become disciples of Jesus.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you ..." (Matthew 28:19-20a)
6. Divine intervention in our own lives.
It can be as dramatic as the conversion of Saul of Tarsus in Acts 9 or as subtle as things that happen in your life that you call "coincidence."
