Someone Help Me Explain To My Friend God Is Real

My friend is 14 years old and is an atheist. I try to explain to him God is real and he will go to hell but ignores me or interrupts me. Can someone help me what to say to him so he won't go to hell?

https://bibleevidences.com/ -- Good site

On the philosophical side, the universe itself seems filled with a very fine tuned level of design, from the solar system to the star systems to a single cell filled with DNA. I mean just look at it.

You also have the problem of, what created the universe? You can only go back so far until you eventually reach the unmoved mover, the first cause, God the rock, on which everything else is founded on.

The real problem most athiests will have to get over is that it ultimately comes down to child like faith, which God requires as the way fallen man is saved. If Jesus himself was on the earth athiests as a whole would still disbelieve.

Luke why not bring your friend here and we can hash out what problems he has as far as God’s existence.
