Or in other words....why should one follow God?

Why would it "work for them" and not for you? The God I know and serve will "work" for anybody who excepts and wants to follow Hi's ways!
See that "works for you". That blind acceptance does not work for me. The wonderful thing is we can all choose different routes to our happiness.
The acceptance that I have is not "blind" and only came to me after years of trying to find another way. If you read some of my hubs I think that you will find I was not one to accept anything with my eyes closed!
Honestly I don't care what others believe, I care about doing what is right for me and my family. What others choose is none of my business.
HVW, Again it boils down to what one can believe. You can believe in a god while many of us can't.
Without proof I can't accept anything as existing, all the things I see point to non-existence of gods. My mind isn't closed but neither are my eyes.
And your eyes cannot see sound waves, atoms or germs. Could it be Borsia, that there are many thing we cannot see, but still exist?
You fail to mention there is physical proof of those things existing.
There is physical proof of the existence of those things now, but not always; however, they existed without proof.
HV actually we can see all those things, though with sound waves we can really only see their affects. We can also measure and quantify them and manipulate them and reproduce them.
And we can "see" the works of God all around us...but some do not want to give Him the credit he deserves!
How can you speak what you "think" others are thinking. There are no stereotypes involved in loving God.
So in other words you "lean on your own understanding". Every time I tried that I regretted it. I think that this is what is wrong with the world today...they assume something is a certain way, even though they have not considered every possibility.
I'm not speaking for others; those are reasons I find god appealing. But 'appealing' doesn't prove existence. Leaning on my understanding doesn't mean I haven't considered more possibilities, it means I've considered god and found the idea inadequate
Then what do you find adequate, evolution?
Okay that is your right...Free will is a gift from God...
Thank you Sarah, I could have not said it better myself!
I often wonder why some people become completely aware of God, why others are just as certain that God does not exist. Is this just a matter of choice?
I do not know if it was a choice for me. I mean I just always accepted it. That is an interesting question though.
I always thought there was a God...I just did not understand or "like" the concept of God. I still struggle with this to a degree.
I totally agree!
Even God speaks of the importance of following your parents, and that is good place to start!
And how could life evolve from "natural causes" ? What are the laws that allow that to happen? Then, finally...How can there be law with out a law giver?
The initial spark of life remains unproven but the concept that under the right circumstances something like a lightning bolt could have created that spark.
Once you have the first spark evolution begins and develops progressively more complex life.
And who created "the right circumstances"? Was all this just a "happy accident"?
pretty much just dumb luck after countless combinations over billions of years one struck just the right happenstance and the spark was made.
