The Unknown Artist

Some people question the existence of God. They love to pressure believers for evidence. Since they can't hear the still small voice of the creator, anyone that can must be delusional. Unbelievers say logic is on their side. Yet, if I suggested no one created the art pictured below, anyone would call me absurd. To illustrate the importance of faith in an absolute truth that cannot be proven, the artist purposely created the painting below in such a way it can never be proven he created it. He can reveal himself as the artist but since no original copy exists, it will always take faith in the artist for the observer to believe he is the creator.
Would you believe paint spilled across the canvas and this painting spontaneously appeared? Me neither. How about if we did it 14 billion times?How logical is it to believe a vastly more complicated, detailed work of art, the universe, spontaneously appeared by means of a comic accident?  Just as the evidence for the artist is the painting, so is creation the evidence of a creator.  The bible says: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. (Psalms 19:1-3 KJV).
Suppose you look at the painting and said to yourself, " I've never seen the face or heard the voice of the artist. There is no signature. It's impossible to prove who painted this. Therefore, he might not exist". Would that be logical ? Do you think that makes him less real? What if a friend said he knew the artist and offered to introduce him to you?  If you said, " I don't like his work", would that make him less of an artist?  Turning a blind eye to the artwork or finding distaste for the artist will not change the fact the painting belongs to the artist. Turning down a chance to meet the artist means you'll never understand the painting. The artist alone interprets the art's true meaning and purpose. Jesus Christ is the ultimate artist and you are His masterpiece. You are the only evidence you need to respond to Him. Will you allow Him to finish decorating?
