I believe what I believe because I believe that beliefs are important to believers.
On a serious note, I believe in God because He is My Heavenly Father. He is Jehovah Jireh - my provider, Jehovah Rapha - my healer, Jehovah Shalom - my Peace. He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords. Great and mighty is He and He reigns forever more.
When I first was called by the audible voice of the Holy Spirit, I was incredulous. I had been told by the evil organization known as the "mother church" that no such thing was possible.
However, after struggling to unleash false doctrines, and seeking God more and more, I came to a place where I believe what is written in the Bible. BECAUSE I have lived some of those things.
I have prayed for many things. God answered my prayer to pay my University of Pennsylvania tuition by giving me a store. This happened less than 12 hours after my prayer.
I joined the Marines in 1989 after the Holy Spirit told me there would be a war in the mideast. I requested and received a guarantee to learn Arabic.
In 2002, I joined the National Guard and begin reviewing Arabic. The Lord told me to do that. While in the mideast, the Holy Spirit showed me in dreams where Al-Qaida agents were working. He spoke into my ear and told me where Iranian Intel was operating.
For me, there is absolutely no question there is a living, loving, powerful God. I have no shame for Him. There is nothing better in my life.
He always comforted me. In the worst times of my life, He was there for me.
I believe what i believe because it´s what seems reasonable to me, following all that i learned in my life.
God has revealed Himself to my heart through the saving grace of His Son, my Lord and Savior,Jesus Christ. Through reading His Word and praying incessantly God and I have an intimate, one on one, Father/daughter relationship. I have complete confidence in Him and strive to do His will. He has given me so much to be thankful for. He has carried me through many tribulations. Through it all He has helped me grow in my faith in Him. Truly I walk by faith, not by sight.
Life is awesome, existence is sublime and mystical.
Believe I will define as to hold an idea in one's heart as a truth even though it cannot be conclusively proven to be an absolute fact. Life is awesome, that is what I believe and no one can... read more

If not, then is this earth life a kind of heaven? A reflection of it, or is it really modeled more closely to hell. I don't believe you can call earth life neutral. That's not an option. Read the forums alone and we...
