Why Question Believers

    Why question God or his believers? I think that the people that don't believe in God went through something and the situation didn't turn out the way they wanted it and they blame God. We all are put through tests and trials it's all about prayer and trusting in his words. God Bless!!

      No one in their right mind would question a supposed imaginary being. But, questioning believers is always worth doing.
      This would be a bad assumption/stance to take.
      Life itself is a test and trial. No prayer needed to get through and as for trusting "his" words? Only the gullible would.

      That sounds more like an irrational belief than it does a thought. lol

      You can't say that all atheists feel that way hmm
      That's just one example of a situation where someone doesn't believe in God.
      Some people haven't had a situation which turns out bad and they blame God.
      They just don't have a reaeson to beleive hmm

          Why can't people be nicer to one another, like Ashton? It seems there is alot of bad blood in these forums and it stems from absolute nonsense.

              You tend to be alot less angry than many of the other forum surfers. I would like to think that people think the same of me, as I do my best to be pollite.

    I would agree partially with Cagsil, in that it is good to question a person who believes in God. If a person is so sure about what/who they believe in, then questions are the gateway for an opportunity to talk to someone about there faith or gain a better understanding of what the person believes. in fact, I think it is vital for a person who does believe in God to ask themselves the same question, " Why do I believe in God?" A person who believe in something that is a trend, or the "thing" to believe in for the occasion is really nothing more than a phase in your life. Believing in something means you have conviction of it. Conviction of something means that with every fiber of your being you are utterly convinced that the thing you believe in is true.

      Agreed spencer, and also along with conviction comes many ideas. Conviction is stronger than opinion or view, it is something you are willing to give your life for.

    Agreed Sassy, it's kind of dumb because they're the ones with all these questions and then they answer them themselves!

      Not once has any non-believer answered themselves while questioning a believer. roll

        Why. Do they find it impossible to walk and chew gum at the same time too?

          You're funny Dude. It's bad enough believers cannot be honest with those who question them. hmm

            I'm honest. Sometimes brutally. Gets me in trouble. I just don't understand why an atheist would be attracted to religious forums. Messiah Complex? You want to save them from their own ignorence. Not every book has been written yet, what answers we have are geusses at present. This planet is like a piece of moldy food floating in a substance we haven't yet identified, and following Quatum physics into string and membrane theory, doesn't answer any questions...we merely have more. We aren't sure yet, how small the smallest thing is, nor how big something can be. We declare we've found the "beginning of the universe" before we have found the other end, where we are going. If there is no other end...then we haven't found the beginning at all. Infinity has no beginning and no end. We've been to the moon, and not to the bottom of our oceans. We don't know where the life came from. We do have two choices. Either it started here, or it didn't, and that doesn't rely on whether God is there or not. You shouldn't take it all so personally.

              All questions will eventually be answered...and we're probably all wrong. All of us.

              Thank you for not being mean to me,  but I try to be honest.  But, not all Christians agree with me.  But,  I do appreiciate that you are not mean.

              If you say so.
              If you say so.
              This I don't doubt.
              Then why don't you ask an Atheist and never mind asking me.
              Maybe for them. Not me.
              No. I would prefer to save other people from that ignorance. A believer is more than welcome to live with their ignorance and "know not what they do".
              According to you.
              Interesting statement.
              Are you stating the obvious to read your own writing(hearing yourself talk)?
              Finding one isn't mutual exclusive to the other. "Where we are going"? In reference to what exactly?
              ?
              Infinity? Has no end, but should certain stand to reason it has a beginning.
              And your point?
              What life? Human? Alien? Animal? Bacteria?
              I don't take anything a believer has to say personally. I just rather they left other people alone with regards to their belief and stayed out of other people's life with regards to how they live it, if said person isn't harming themselves or others. Fairly simple that believers cause more conflict with their selfish attitude than non-believer would ever possibly do.
