Can you make a deal with God?


So first a disclaimer, I am an atheist and don't believe there is a God, but for those of you who do, do you make "deals" with God or do you believe you can do this and does God respond? The other day, I heard of someone who promised God to go to church more if God let her get a job she interviewed for? Then there was a soap opera on a tv at the hospital, and a parent promised to be a good person if his child was healed (yes, I know it was a soap, but do people really do this?) Much like my prayer question, I really just wonder what religious people think, and I'm not trying to start a fight

    onegoodwoman, I respect your outlook on God. How I view God is that we should approach God as blanks pure, bereft of any thought of ourselves, any trace of the world, without any conditioning of the mind whatsoever, like pure souls,and nothing else.

    Gabriel Wilson, this is the best way to approach God. Believe me, I was certain that a very few mong us think about God this way. We Hindus deem God as father, mother, beloved, husband, friend and so on. It creates a greater affinity taking us closer

    zzron, so apt is your vision of God that I am all for that. At the same time, we should let all humans to approach God the way they like as God knows that we indulge in them like kids and believe me God would be smiling and happy to see them doing so

    Channellchilds, your vision of God is something every person ,who loves God, should ponder over seriously instead of wandering in the of jungle of written words and plethora of outer superficial expressions to please God. So simple is your way !

    You say,you don't believe in God ,yet have obliterated all the trash from your mind. Such an impossible feat even devout religious persons aspire to achieve but fail to accomplish it. I respect your outlook and admire that with my all heart.

    Darrell, Roberts, God is God because He sees unlike us, He takes unlike us, He speaks unlike us. So what you deem as deals, only God knows them what and He responds unlike us. Let human traits remain separate from God. Who knows God truly ?

    Neverletitgo, you are really closer to God. What is the shame in asking from Him who gives us all, who is the real owner of everything. I have also experienced God in a like manner and God has fulfilled my many wishes so generously with all kindness

    MajoDwag, right or wrong, black and white, fair or unfair, deal or no deal, false or truth and so on remain with humans and exhaust with humans, God is beyond all that. So my view is that all gestures to remember Him are valid and true without doubt.
