God exists because life exists

Updated on July 16, 2019

God of the universe exists in many ways

It is written in the Bible, in the beginning God created everything in six days, living things and man and woman. Now, there are some people that say that God does not exist, but we say that God exits because life exists, even if our God is different

In the future we might even accept that God is just a life force energy that has the power to give life to every living thing, so wherever we look in the universe we might be seeing part of God, now because the universe exist God exists.

God exists discussions

Welcome to our article (10), God exists because life exists

May God help and guide me to write the right things in this article?

Dear readers, in this article, we are discussing about the existence of God, we have already written a few articles on religious issues. Now, in this article we are trying to answer the question that most people want to know, which is whether God exists or does not exist. We know that this question has been asked several thousands of time, from our previous generations and there is no clear answer about it. But people believe about the existence of God, because it has been so for a long time.

Anyhow, today this religious question needs an answer, because there are the atheists that say that God does not exist, and that God and religions are an invention of our human mind. We must disagree with them, because we believe that God must exist. Anyhow, there are a few things that the atheists may be right; one of which is that religions are manmade, but that does not mean that God does not exist. Therefore, in this article we are going to prove them wrong, because we believe that God must exist.

So, let us talk about the existence of God, because we have reasons to believe that God exists because life exist; the only problem here is that we must prove it to the atheists, who do not believe in God’s existence. So, we must build up the proof of God’s existence by discussing and writing our beliefs in several ways. This is what we are doing just now, and we have done that in other religious articles that we have published, in our writings of Prayers for Reconciliation. I believe that this article will be a long one, because there are so many issues to talk about.

As we have said, these articles are being written in good faith for the future benefit of mankind, since mankind needs to know the views of all human beings. So, in these writings, while we are trying to prove that God exists and discussing our religious beliefs, we will also be looking for religious options that can improve links between the existing religions, in the hope that this can help solve the religious problems that exist today.

In our last article of, Cosmic spiritual dreams, or God’s sent dreams, we believe that those dreams can have a direct link with God, now, in this article of God exists because life exists, we will be writing about the existence of God, since we believe that God is life itself.

Now, in this article we are talking about the following items: Can we prove that God exists; How can we prove God’s existence; God exists at least by definitions; God exists because life exists; About the existing religions; How can we prove that God exists.

Religious leaders at a meeting

Sometimes religious leaders have meetings, where they discuss about their Gods' and their religious differences, in the hope that they would be able to agree about God; as it is believed that there is only one God for all existing religions

Today we need a different powerful God

This is how God could be described in the future, a life force energy in the universe. So, God would be different from how Michelangelo saw God and painted God face, however God may or may not be like that, but here we want to prove that God exists.

We can prove that God exists

God’s existence and religious beliefs are hard to prove, since every one of us believe in our own ways, therefore it is not going to be easy to prove the existence of God, because some of us don’t believe in God and some of us do. But I believe that we need God and religions, because in the past we have needed God and religion to live our lives; so, it is important to prove the existence of God.

Now, we must say that we believe in the existence of God, otherwise we would not write these religious articles; But today what has prompted me to write this article, is the fact, that I have found on the Internet people that believe in religion in a way similar to mine; but I have to admit that those people are well educated, because they write in a scholarly way, however our beliefs seem to run in a parallel way; now because there are these learned people writing what I am writing make me apprehensive, however I am going ahead and write my own religious beliefs, because beliefs are beliefs and your own beliefs are your beliefs and nobody else.

So, today I am going to write about how God exists, because I believe that God really exists, even if God exists because God is life and the definition of life, so, God must be the essence of the existence of life in the universe. To prove that other people believe that God exists, I am going to publish at the end of this article one of those articles I found on the Internet.

Anyhow, here we want to talk about the existence of God and prove that God really exists. So, how can we prove that God exists?

-----------------------------------

How can we prove God's existence

We need to prove God’s existence, because we need God existence; so, we are claiming that God exists at least by definition and God exists because life exists, so, let us discuss how and why God could exist? And does exist.

People want to believe in God because it is a noble thing to do, and gives the believer a good feeling, whether this good feeling is due to the ways that we have been taught, or there is something else within us that brings to the surface this good feeling, we are not sure; but we know that believing in God is helpful to some of us, it is common sense and this is one of the reasons why we like to believe in God. But today religious beliefs are changing, there are the atheists that say that God does not exist, and they believe that mankind has invented God only to serve their own personal purpose, so, what should we believe one may ask?

Well, I suppose that we must look at the beginning of the existing religious beliefs, to see what could have been the reasons for mankind to believe in God.

When we look at our written history, we find that humanity has believed in gods and religions since the beginning of this current Era, therefore, since we became the predominant specie on earth, because of our higher intelligence.

Now, by using our intelligence and our thoughts, we wanted to believe that there were gods for various reasons; one of these reasons is that god must be able to help us, if we needed help or protection from anything that is stronger than ourselves, including those spiritual things that are supplied by our own imagination and in reality may not exist; therefore, many gods and many religions have arisen from this inner need that we feel within ourselves, because of our feeling of insecurity, plus the need that we wanted to know why we are living on this planet earth.

However, we have evolved and we have reached the point where we feel more secure about ourselves, therefore, the atheists do not need God and those religious feelings of security that we needed in the past; therefore, because we don’t feel the need for protection as we did before, we start questioning ourselves, if there is an entity that we can call God, or it is an invention of our human mind, invented to make us feel secure in the past.

We hope you see what we mean, since we believe that this weakening of the need for protection, is one of the reasons why atheists insist that God does not exist; of course, whether they are right cannot be proved, just the same way as the theists cannot prove that God exists.

Therefore, it follows that if we believe that God exists, then we need to prove that God exists in a way or the other? This is what we want to achieve with this religious article; you see, we want to prove that God does exist, because we believe that we still need God.

How can we do that I can hear you already asking? Since today there are people that are saying that God does not exist. How can we prove that God exists and there is no doubt about it?

We know that it is not going to be easy to convince people that God exists, but we have to find a way, because I know that God exists, my friends agree with my theory that God really exist and I can add that there are other people that think and express themselves in the same direction.

Therefore, as we have said, I have been prompted to write this article about the existence of God, not only because I believe that God exists; but also, because I have found on the Internet a few people that believe in religion very much like me. So, today I have set my task and I am going to write about how God could exist even if it is only by definition, so that I could prove to the world that there is God, even if God exists at least by definition.

--------------------

Wanting to define god as person

As far as we know nobody has ever seen God, and the closest person that can take the place of God on this planet earth would be our lord Jesus Christ.

God exists at least by definition

Now, let us build up the proof of the existence of God

We have reason to believe that God does really exist. You see, God exists because you and I exist, if God did not exist then you and I could not exist. Therefore, we can say that life is God and God is life itself, so, one cannot exist without the other, these are our beliefs and our theory of how God exists.

In this theory, my God cannot be exactly like your God, or like the God described in the Bible, therefore, it follows that if God is not exactly like the God described in the Bible; What is God like then? Well, as we have already said, God and life exist in a parallel way to one another, so, they can be one and the same thing. Having said that and knowing that it is not going to be enough for everybody to accept it. Now, we need to prove to our readers how and why God exists.

So, let us describe one of our spiritual theories, which happen to be distant from today religious beliefs; but at the same time, it can be the one that everybody could accept more willingly than the rest. So, with this simple explanation we say, that God must exist at least by definition.

What do you mean about that? What we are trying to say here, is that God needs to be defined, or described, if you see what we mean. What we are trying to say is that God does not need to be the creator of everything, as existing religions want us to believe, in fact, in our theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, God is the modifier of the existing life forces of the universe and through God-life-force, life is made possible on earth. So, we can say that God exists at least by definition, because we believe that God is life and life is God himself.

Now, let us state it once again; you see if we exist, then there should be a life force that makes life possible, otherwise we would not exist? Now, it follows that we need to give a name to the existing life force of the universe that makes life possible, because this is the life force that makes life possible on earth, so, what other name can we give to this life force? Perhaps God is the only name that is suitable to describe this life force.

Did you hear what I have just said? What other name can we give to the life force that makes life possible on earth? Therefore, God exists at least by definition and there is no doubt about it, since God is life.

We must accept that there is God, even if God is the definition of the life force that makes life possible on earth. Therefore, God exists because life exists.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

God exists because life exists

Now, let us talk about this God. If we believe that God exists because life exists, then we must accept that God represents fife, therefore, God exists at least by definition, being the definition of life itself. You see, we need to accept that God is life, and life is God himself; we need to accept that otherwise instead of asking who is God, we would be asking what is life, and where does life come from? Do you see what we mean? It is like a chain that links one thing to another, and it cannot be separated, it cannot be separated because everything in the universe forms a cycle, And God and life form a never-ending cycle that makes life possible on earth.

Anyhow, we must accept that God and life cannot be separated, because they can indeed be one and the same thing. Because how else can we explain the existence of life and how life came about? One can guess that there is this life energy in the universe that makes life possible on earth and this life energy can be called God; therefore, God exists because life exists.

Now, let us review what we have said. We believe that we have two or three choices about God here, ether we must accept that there is a god and God created life on earth, as major religions describe God; or life and God is one and the same thing. You see, there is no other way how we can explain the existence of life on earth by logic reasoning? The third way is that there must be an endless source of life energy in the universe that makes life possible; so, life can self-start by using this existing energy. But if this life energy is not there, then life cannot start and exist. However, we know that there is life on earth, just because we are alive and exist, if we did not exist then I would not be writing this article. Of course, this reasoning of endless life energy poses this question; what can we call this endless life energy? Perhaps God is the only appropriate name that we can give to this life energy. Do you see what we mean?

So, God exists and there is no doubt about it.

I can already hear you protesting and saying; but this life energy that you are talking about here, it is not anything like our God Yahweh described in the Bible, or any other gods of other religions for that matter. So, we wonder how you are going to explain that.

We have to assume that this future God can be explained later, in my religious writings, which I will be writing when we write ‘Reconciliation of the Universe’ theory.

Because now we want to talk about the existing religions, and the effect that our religious theory can have on them, that is when humanity accepts my religious theory of, reconciliation of the universe. You see, if humanity accepts this religious theory; then we want to ask; what about the existing religions? So, let us talk about the existing religions

------------------------------

Moses and the burning shrub

In the Old Testament it says that Moses went up Mout Sinai and saw God as a burning shrub

About the existing religions

What about the existing religions?

In these religious articles, we have reached a stage where we must accept that, God exist at least by definition; now, if we accept that God is life, just the way we know life is. Then we need to ask these questions; what about the existing gods and religions? Are these existing religions that we have today lies? The answer to that is No, they are not lies, as there is a fair amount of truth about them. The truth can be that in the past whenever unexplainable events took place, people thought that it could be a god sent event, people took notice of that event the way it was, but then slowly became distorted and exaggerated.

For instance; Yahweh God of the Israelite appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai as a burning shrub and said to Moses that He was (Yahweh) God. We have to believe that this is true and other events after that were also true; but then a lot of things became exaggerated as the time went by, so, every writer that re-wrote this event said what he thought was right; you see, those writers that wrote the events could only express those events, as good as their knowledge was, and they had to make it as simple as they could, so that the people of those times would understand what they were talking about, they had also to write those events in such a way that they were able to control the people, since religions are very good at controlling people.

Of course, we must admit that the leaders of those time used any means available to control their people, and they saw that religions could control their people and they did. So, the writers had to design religions in such a way that the people could be controlled, because that was the easiest way to control the them. You see, people then were more violet then today, they had to be strong and aggressive because that was the only way to survive. So, religions were helpful and were the best non-violent means to control people. Therefore, we may conclude that religious event became distorted with the passing of time, because of the need to control the public.

So, what can we do to set the record straight, and in a way that agrees to the present religious needs of the people? I suppose we can modify our existing religious beliefs, in such a way that we can still use them, while at the same time, we introduce the new way of religious thinking.

Today people believe that we have reached the age of reason; but only part of us have reached that age of reason. You see, there are religions that oppose progress, so, they have stopped evolving and believe in their religions as they did a thousand years ago; we believe that these religions need to change, and they will change, but it can take a long time for them to change.

Now, let us explain; when we talk about the age of reason, we want to say that we have evolved to a high level of consciousness and therefore, we are ready to use our logic reasoning mind to a greater degree that we have done in the past; because of this logic reasoning, everything that does not stand to our logic reasoning will be rejected, therefore, there are existing religions that need to be modified.

How can we prove that God exists?

Now, let me go back to what I found on the Internet, and then write our own theory.

Just to show you an example, hereunder is what T. Latham at hub pages says in answer to one of my questions about the existence of God; my questions in hub pages were: How do you know that God exists? The atheists say that there is no God. Can we prove them wrong?

Can we prove that God exists? This is one answer I have received to my question.

This is what T. Latham said in answer to my questions, and I quote:

Dr. Frank J. Tipler, a Mathematics and Physics Professor at Tulane University, proves that not only does God exist, but that the universe will be resurrected, and every living soul will be resurrected to face God (Omega Point), and live eternally.

The theory is explained, and proven in his book, "The Physics of Immortality." Tipler uses Math and Physics to prove the theory, and he also makes the comparison by using a cone placed upside down, showing the universe, the earth and its inhabitants, residing at the bottom, or large base of the cone, and God sitting at the top or uppermost point of the cone, which he calls "The Omega Point."

The book is a hard read for someone lacking a science background, but Tipler has finally made a connection between Science and Creation and proves his theory with Math and Physics.

Mine is not a proven theory, but I feel there is a connection with Einstein's Theory E = mc2. God exists as:

The Trinity (three separate or distinct entities under one Godhead).

E = Energy (God) Father

m = mass (Jesus Christ) Son

c = Speed of Light (Holy Spirit) Mother

End of quote.

----------------------

Can we prove that God exists? This is the question.

Thanks to the answer of T. Latham at Hub pages today I am writing this special hub, which is outside my existing religious writings that I am publishing as I write them, so, this hub will not fit as a continuity of my published writings, but it deals with the same subject, therefore, it can stand side by side.

Having said where this hub stands; now I have to say why I am writing it; it is because I believe that God may well be as Dr. Frank J. Tipler describe, just like in my part written theory of, Reconciliation of the Universe, which I am going to finish and publish on the net, my God is somehow like Dr. Frank J Tipler.

You may ask why I do not finish it and publish it now? Well, we must tell you that one of the reasons why we cannot finish our theory of Reconciliation of the Universe is that we must first convince religious people that today religions need to be modified.

Modifying existing religions sounds like troubles, since it sounds like the beginning of the end of the existing religious system; in fact, it sounds like the first trumpet in the Bible Revelations; now, whether our religious writings are going to be the forerunner of the first trumpet we do not know, the only thing we know is that I feel from within my soul that I have to write my religious theory, and if I don’t write it, my life has not been worth living.

This theory of, Reconciliation of the Universe is going to be written in simple English, just because I do not know any better, sometimes I think that it is the will of God that a simple self-taught person like myself feels the need to write these important God things. Then I think that God wants an unlearned person to write religious things, because God wants all sorts of people to understand what is going to be written in the coming new system; God wants that because everybody can understand what is being said and because it would be easy to translate in a new language. As we know some minor world languages are very simple, so, there is the need for a simple written religious book, which would be easily translated in those simple languages.

What Dr. Frank J Tipler and other learned writers are writing is great for all those learned people that are able to understand them; but for the simple people our theory could be better, as it is easier for simple minded people to understand. Perhaps this is God's will, and I have to write my religious writings, So, I am going to start with my own theory of God exists at least by definition.

See you soon in our next article called, Personal spiritual circumstances

May God bless us all?

      Hi Mohamed ashour, thanks for your comment and your link that could be helpful if used to learn religions. But I want to point it out to you; today the world needs a religion that connect all existing religions together. We need a God that loves everybody, not a God that tells us what to do. You see in all religions, we have described God the way we would like God to be like, that is the problem that needs to be solved.

      Hello frank, thanks for your prompt response to my comment. Do you have a coined label for our line of reasoning? We are certainly not theist, deist, atheist or apatheist by definition. We obviously think there is 'God' who just happens to be life itself.

      With respect to extremist religions and violent acts, my philosophy is this: act to promote self and react to protect self, with love and thought, but first do no harm.

      Thank you dryeboahmensah, for reading and then taking the time for writing your comment, which I have to say that I agree with what you are saying; here I would like to add that we should use caution whatever we say in religious circles, above all we should try to make the extremist see their mistakes, so that they don't use religions to do violent deeds and we need to do that without upsetting them. Anyhow this is just another reason why I am writing these religious articles.

      May God bless us all?

      I am very happy to have stumbled upon your article, Mr. Menchise. I have been thinking about these ideas over the last one week, and I am pleased to note that your reasoning agrees very much with mine.

      I strongly think that God is life, and life is God. I mean the totality of life is God. God is neither male nor female. God is not positive or negative, beneficial or harmful, good or bad, righteous or sinful, full or free of jealousy. God is! God acts and reacts!

      The individual components of the universe, be it the sun, moon, human beings , ants, trees, amoebae or sodium atoms, all exist and behave as though God. It's all about 'being', 'acting', and 'reacting'. The extent of being, action and reaction is of course a function of each component's degree of sophistication in the evolutionary journey. Human beings, for instance , are capable of higher level of being, action and reaction, based on our capacity for abstract reasoning.

      Does this mean God is impersonal and therefore all religions are useless? Our reasoning human minds naturally shun suffering and gravitate towards blissful existence in all aspects of our lives. Blissful existence , also referred to as heaven, is desired by all mankind, and all kinds of stories have been put forward over the generations by various cultures to expectedly generate an all-powerful supernatural being in charge of such heaven, ready to benefit those who seek him.

      The way I see it, let the religions have their say as long as they give hope and purpose to some people. For those of us who see God as life itself, we have a responsibility to promote blissful existence for all and to help stop unnecessary suffering in the world. But , always bear in mind that action begets equal and opposite reaction. Do it to others and it will be done to you! That Is True Always!

      Thank you Frank, for your comment and interest. Allah is one in our faith he is the same of Abraham and the same who guided the Jewish out of Egypt and who guide the whole creation . I do not know what you mean when you say we need modern English version of the Quraan. This holy book is found in many Islamic websites and it is the only book that never changed since revelation. To help you see these links :-

      Thank you, Mahmo for your comment and above all for your website link, which I have started to read, it is all good stuff, but I wish is was more specific about what book of Allah it is talking about; my guess is that it is talking about the Koran. Now if that is the case, would not it be easier to post a link of the Koran for the people to read and understand your religion? By the way we need a modern English version that is easy to understand, so that the readers can make up their own minds?

      For what I have read already, it seems to me that your God Allah was ones called Yahweh, since this is mentioned several times that he is the same God of Abraham and the same God that guided the Israelites out of Egypt. Now all this needs to be explained in a clear way to the public, so that they can decide what is believable to them and what is not and therefore not acceptable. Thanks again May your God bless you?

      You say Atheists don't believe in God because 'we' fear he can't help us or protect us, or that we don't need it? That is a mental concept, an Agnostic or Atheistic person does not fear that god will neither help nor harm us because there is no belief, period. Perhaps, existent in definition, but in reality.. no.

      Well, the thing about God is that it does not matter if anyone can prove He exists. If you believe in God, you don't need proof.

      God may exist. Plenty of people think that there is a God. Not everyone agrees on what, exactly, is meant by the term 'God'.

      But I do not think that 'his' existence ~ or non-existence, for that matter ~ can be proved.
