Some say God is with them all the time, but I don't know what they mean. What does that feel like?
I dont believe in the bible God.
For me, the best analogy I can give here , is to say learning to have faith is about the same as believing in a God. Both are invisible. Both require you to trust with no guarantees. Both are not tangible. Both are limitless. Both requires you to have a belief in magic/miracles. Both encourage hope.
It feels like being reborn (edited) into the family of God.
I think God is everywhere. Doesn't mean God is 'with me' in any comforting sense.I think people who claim God is 'with them' maybe just find comfort in the ubiquitous presence of the Divine.
God can easily be found in one's imagination just like Santa Clause and the Easter bunny. God is just an ancient belief.
God is a personal matter. Hopefully, parents will help their children find God. Jesus is really the latest authority on the matters of God, Heaven and Soul. "If your eye be single your whole body will be full of light," He said. If your eye is dark, your whole body will be dark: It has to do with awareness. Apparently, its all within. Its beyond: There is something to be aware of beyond sleep, beyond death, beyond attachments, beyond the senses … beyond ……
The Way I See It.
So what you're saying is that you hope that parent continuing brainwashing their children into believing this BS. Dumb them down quick before they start asking questions and thinking for themselves, right? Religion should be almst gone within the next 20 years. Can't go away soon enough.
"When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone;I cannot put my finger on it now;the child is grown;the dream is gone"~PF~
Children have a natural interest in metaphysical things and the ability to accept the reality of God. Adults, not so much.
They also accept the reality of the Easter Bunny and Santa, but that all stops after a certain age but the God delusion never stops keeps going on well into adulthood - reinforced with threats of hell that started in infancy (brainwashing). If you lie enough times to either child or adult, they'll eventually believe you.
