Does God Truly Exist
Is there a God?
Is there anything like God?
Questions like this: does God really exist, is there anything like God, do we have a God, have become more frequently asked questions than the most popular questions- How to make money and how to find a true love. These questions have become the most frequently asked questions on hubpages and in everyday life globally.
The question of whether God exist on Earth or elsewhere has become a panorama to men globally. But should we criticize those preaching the inexistence of God when we are true witnesses of huge injustices and unfair treatments in the world today in the past? Yet, we cannot crucify those spreading the contrary news that God truly exist, so what do we do? Follow me as we look into things as a way of resolving these two analogues.
Poland during WW 2
World war 2
Many heartbreaking occurrences have taken place in the world today and in the past which stand a greater chance of convincing people of the inexistence of anything called God. Let us go back to the 1940’s, there was the second world war, which saw the deaths of uncountable innocent and guilty humans; babies, kids, teens, adults, women, men, old and young. There were a lot of massacre, humans torturing fellow humans to a painful end, hunger and malnutrition, brutality and inhumane were all witnessed as a result of the selfishness of one single man. People gathered in their religious worship places to call on their God or god, without any immediate answer to rescue them from the grievous death to come. Many were even murdered in their churches, mosques, shrines, temples, etc.
This made people to ask, WHERE IS God? IS THERE ANYTHING LIKE God? If there is, why didn’t he or she stop these men from perpetrating this evil on mankind? Some asked, SINCE A God IS A SUPERNATURAL BEING OR MOST HIGH AND SUPREME SPIRIT ABOVE EVERY OTHER SPIRIT OR CREATURE, WHY DIDN’T HE OR SHE DESCEND ON THIS EVIL PERPETRATORS TO SAVE THE PEOPLE THAT WORSHIPPED AND CALLED HIM God? These questions remained unanswered throughout the period of the war, and many people; religious and pagans, lost their lives or that of their loved ones.
We are also aware of the worst human genocide on Earth; The Rwandan Genocide, whereby a particular tribe just wake up and decided to wipe an entire tribe, butchering them with knives and cutlasses, and most these victims had a being they called their God. People also asked, WHERE WAS God WHEN THIS HAPPENED? Do we stop them from asking, do we have the right to quench their mouth from burning out words?
Tsunami is never and will never be a secret, a natural disaster that claimed the lives of so many innocent and accused citizens. Some of the victims came to this world in pain and sufferings and also left this world in torture, for what they knew nothing about, they were only victim of location and time, are they to blame? Another massive set of people asked, WHERE WAS God WHEN THIS HAPPENED?
Sufferings and pains
Everyday, we hear or see babies, innocent babies being born into this world with different health complications, some die few minutes after their birth, others are left uncared for after their mother die at birth. So many uncountable families today have lost their breadwinners in one sudden disaster or another; if not through assassination, accident, sickness, natural disaster or one unforeseen occurrence or the other and they had a being they called, God.
Where will I start and where will I stop, am I to mention of the proliferation of global injustice; innocent and hardworking people living under $1 a day while some inhumane and heartless fellows who sit down doing nothing but steal, rob or kill are massively enjoying the sweats of others. Youths lend loan, toil day and night and finally graduate without jobs, not even one to pay their daily meals. We witness men oppressing their fellow men with ill-gotten wealth and power yet, these victims have a being they call God. People ask, DOES God TRULY EXIST?
Anna, a fifty year old woman who lost her three kids and husband in ghastly motor accident, lay bare on the floor, crying and calling unto her God to heal her only hope, her adopted child, who happens to be the only one left to continue her lineage when she eventually joins her ancestors, but all to no avail, the child gave up the ghost in an heartbreaking manner, how do you want her to believe that God exist?
Life is a bundle of miseries and uncertainties, also contained in it are; injustice and fairness to the chosen ones, which all depends on the original architect of the construction, which means that we harvest what had been chronicled in the architecture.
I am an African, and no one needs to convince me of the existence of a being called god in the African perspective, a being that has the power of influencing certain things in life:
1. Hurts human
2. Cause death
3. Disorganizes marriage
4. Attracts love
5. Brings luck
6. Stops bullet penetrating the human flesh or body
7. Stops knife cutting into flesh
8. Cause people to believe what a man says
being that has the power to do these smaller things exist, why do we doubt the
existence of its opposite, that has the power and ability to do exploit? All these
evil we are witnessing in the world today, are clear indication that there must
be a judgment day for all of us. If we can have one single man ruling over a
whole nation of so many population, and whatever he or she commands, becomes an
order that everyone must follow and obey, then why should we doubt the
existence of a being that is above every other being? If we doubt the existence
of God, then you should as well doubt the existence of a country’s president,
and we should also doubt the existence of a Judge at the court. Don’t you know
that what we are doing here on Earth is a forged activities of things taking
place in the unseen realm?All these evil are no proof of the in-existence of a God, but a witness to its reality.
If you doubt the existence of God, I want you to try this simple analogue:
Visit a strong and popular herbalist, voodooist, sorcerer, soothsayer or a witchdoctor, ask him or her to give you a charm to make you get a sexual attention of anyone you touch, I am pretty sure they can do this. If he or she gives you the charm, try it on one, two or three different persons and if it works, then your research is finished, God exist, how?
I am pretty sure that you are aware that the opposite of good is bad, and vice versa, so if such a being or spirit that has the power of doing bad things exists, likewise, there should exist its contrary, a good one, which is God. Believe it today, God exist. I am going to explain in details things to convince you, but for now, let me hear your opinion, thanks.
