and the simplest way, just pray
"God if you are real, show me. Talk to me. Fill me with your spirit. If you are real I want to know you" etc

Act like "God" is standing in your room with you, converse with Him. If you dont get any breakthroughs then make your own decision. If you truly knock on the door with an open heart, you will get the answers you are looking for

Been there, done that, didn't work.

Now let me guess, you are gonna blame me for not trying hard enough?

What about the billions of non-Christians (past and present) who have tried similar methods and came to the conclusion that Islam was right or that Buddha really is the way to enlightenment? Did they also all not try hard enough?

GOD knows the heart, that is what he hears, if your not sincere or honest in finding him, he will know...If you are sincere and ask GOD....I am a simple man or woman and I don't understand how to believe in you and I don't understand why Jesus is the only way to come to you, please guide me in my journey to find you, and I will tell you this if you are sincere he will come to you, it is your faith. GOD seeks not your demands

So you are indeed saying I didn't try hard enough, well fuck you.

Why is it always the fault of the people not able of finding this "Faith"?

And again this doesn't explain how people can arrive at different notions of God(s) or different explanations of the Bible.

If God really speaks and responds to notions like that then one would expect a concise response in people receiving these "revelations". Yet there are thousands of different Christian denominations and even a multitude of that in different religions altogether claiming these revelations...

This means that 99%+ of the people claiming to have had similar "spiritual experiences" are arriving at the wrong conclusion. I simply can't see how such a method could be proof for anything.

I'm sorry you feel frustrated. I hope you read my link on why people are not called into a relationship with God. If you personally examine you heart(soul) then you might find answers there. Real ones from a skeptical perspective using logic and reason.

All of us use our experiences and perceive the Universe in a messy illogical way unless we deliberately try to use reason and our experiences by using the totality of the soul(consciousness). This messy process is why there's so much disagreement, but... much is quite orderly in Monotheism in general. If you let go of pre-concieved ideas and look at the logical philosophical link I posted, you will see some orderly explanation of the existence of God.

It's up to you as a skeptic to decide yourself. No one can persuade you (deeply at least) because of the Law of Free Will. If you are indeed a being of reason, then as an intellectual you read those proofs as well as your own ideas. You also read skeptical challenges. Then you decide using Free Will to believe.

I hope you try. It's weak to criticize others and intellectually dishonest to discount what you haven't read even briefly.
Please verify you're human:
