No one has seen God but even then most of us believe in HIS existence. why?
Nature speaks of His wonders and love is always on time for those whom believe. It is good and just to believe that God exist.
I would argue the truth of "most of us believe in his existence", but those that do mostly believe because they have been inculcated with that point of view almost from birth by their family and associated belief group.
The same thing happens with Santa Claus, children are inculcated with that idea from childhood, and they implicitly belive it to be true. It is only as they grow older and their parents and peer group admit that it was all a hoax, that the belief in him is lost. If the pretence was continued (as it is with religion), then they would almost certainly continue to believe in Santa Claus unto death.
I can't agree with the "Him" in this question however... I think that we all undergo unique spiritual experiences that make us more aware of the invisible world around us.... and we are given just a small idea of how complex this universe truly is.
For the most part, unfortunately, I have to agree with Gaizy, that it is essentially - in many cases - learned behavior.
It's strange how we've all been led to believe that God is a Him. What if it's a Her?
I joke. For like you I don't know what God is. However, I can tell you this.
If God is Omni-present, Omni-scient, Omni-present, it means He (we have to use some label so I'm saying 'He') must be everywhere, in every thing, both the tangible and the non-tangible, the real, the imagined and the unimaginable (unimaginable by we humans) Therefore He must be in us. Has to be.
We told to concentrate on being aware, being in the present moment: looking, seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, smelling, touching as an infant does, without judgement or labelling.
So what is doing the looking, seeing etc? Who is this? Why, it is the Observer, the Experiencer. If God is in everything and every thing, then He/She/It must be looking out through our eyes, hearing with our ears. If that were not the case we would be SEPARATE from God, and we cannot be, for He is EVERYWHERE.
This Observer, this Experiencer, this Witness never changes. Only the experiences change. This is our constant. I suspect that this is the part of us we can call 'the god in within us.'
You believe in yourself, don't you? You know you exist. The big question in most people lives is is this ' Will this awareness continue. Does it last? Or do we fade away at life's end like a spent battery? Are we the temporary container? (or body) or are we the very life in the body?
We shouldn't expect an immediate answer - though we might get one. If we ponder on these things maybe we'll stop "Sweating the small stuff" and start wondering what our lives really are all about. Maybe we'd put the 'soap opera' things in perspective.
I hope this answer has given you some 'food for thought.'
Nobody has seen my brain but everybody knows i have one. The fact that i can think, i can walk, i can sleep, i can reason, i can hub....all that is proof that i have got a brain. You don't have to see it
Well, as children we have been brought up to believe in the existence of God and have been taken to temple,church, mosque,gurudwara or any place associated with one's religion, by our parents. And whatever is drilled in us when we are a child stays with us all our life. Even the good and bad habits .
So whenever we are in trouble we seek HIS assistance and guidance.
Then all that is not seen cannot be unbelievable.
We haven't seen hunger, thirst, pain etc but we believe in it because we feel it. Likewise we will feel HIS presence everywhere if we believe HE exists.
Here we have to believe first then feel , in others cases we see and feel first and then believe.
Between tusitala and rajan I don't know who is responsible for my head spinning after having to read your comments back to back. #Dazed and confused! as for ronhi you cannot compare someone that is considered a supreme being to your "brain". Unless you are from another planet you have a brain just like everyone else. Fortunately everyone doesn't have the power or control like "the god" this question speaks of. Now that I have spoken my peace it's impossible to focus or answer your question lol jk
I can feel God (or spirit as I say). I feel spirit all the time.
I see enough in the world to know that this intricate design had an artist, a creator, an originator.
Now this artist may have different names to different people, but the bottom-line is he penned a masterpeice.
We exist in life and we believe there is a creator. We call Him - God. It is just a name to signify an existence of the creator.
For people who believe in spiritual being existence, will believe the existence of God as everyone is saying. But if you do not, then He will not exist in your mind.
There is always things that are hard to explain without seeing. Just like the practice of Feng Shui or Qigong. People do not see how Feng Shui can help in the lives of people who are in need. Same goes with Qigong that promotes healthy living. It is an invisible force not seen by our eyes though it exists.
Follow your heart and you will know what I mean.

I often feel like my Grandmother is still here with me, walking the halls and just being near. Is this allowed by GOD?

Why are we here on Earth ?What am i supposed to do here ?that's a spiritual kind of question. But it's haunting me since morning. Everyday we wake up, go to work and then get to sleep. Is that's only the life ? Only this much ? What is your opinion ?

Why do so many people believe that God doesn't love them when he sent his only son to save them?

Is it possible for you to "believe in" god, even though you know that god does not actually exist, except in your mind?

Why do most people, whilst they acknowledge God's existence fail to live for him?The devil has done everything he can to make people think that he doesn’t exist and yet most people live for him. Most people, though they believe in God don’t live for him. Why is that?
