I've been asking myself that question lately. I really don't know. I don't consider myself religious, but I have questions that are unanswered. I'm scared to believe but I'm scared not to believe.
I do believe there is a higher power. One that is benevolent.
It's not necessary to be religious in order to believe in a Higher Power. Religions are the creations of men. If there is a God, the best way to learn about him would be through nature, not these man-made religions. I hope you find peace, David.
Yes. I believe with every fiber within me that there is a God. All one must do is have faith. Just look around at the beauty that God has created.
Jasdeep! Wow, the perpetual question! I believe the answer to that question does however lie within the "holy bible." I myself am not religious. But, I have studied the bible extensively. In so many words throughout the "bible" it basically says a "god" is whatever you worship. The god of christians, muslims or so called "almighty god" is no different. There is no tangible proof of any god except that you or me worship it, him, her or them.
Beyond man's worship and or belief, there is no proof any god exists.
I don't believe in an external deity or deities. But I believe there is a God or good life force within us all. The strength of the life force for good, which is altruistic behaviour, based on tolerance of all beliefs, is located at any one time on a spectrum, from very strong to very weak. But we have the option and responsibility to change our behaviour, thus to locate it at any point on the 'line' of good versus evil. Was the life force/God/good given to us from 'without'? I know not. This makes me an agnostic.
The question of whether God exists or not has always been an easy one for me to answer. I believe that each individual human being is their own God. I believe that the universe's higher power gave us the tools, resources, and standards upon which to live by. Not so that we may live in fear of his persecution, but rather to live in fear of our own. Whomever was responsible for creating mankind did not intend on watching over us like children or punishing us like children. He or she provided us with the standards, quality, and understanding of what is acceptable and what is not. Unfortunately, the majority of people are much too afraid to live with such freedom and such responsibility. Most cannot handle believing that they are as powerful or significant as their all mighty god. I refuse to deem a "God" as sacred as I deem myself.
Of course He exists, and it is not something I think; it is something I know. We are inundated with undeniable proof of His existence. I will acknowledge that God, through Christ, had to call me, draw me, and give me faith and the ability to act upon that faith in order to comply to His commandments; nevertheless, I have trouble identifying my belief in God as faith( as we understand it). One does not ask his wife if she exists, or get in his car and ponder its existence, or walk up to the information desk of a 400,000 ton skyscraper enclosing 40 million cubic feet with the question, "Does this skyscraper exists?" Why does he not ask, ponder or question these things? Because he is inundated with the evidence of their existence. It would be absurd to ask, ponder and question these things. This is the way it is with my belief in God. The evidence is so overpowering as to His existence it reaches beyond faith to just knowing it to be a fact.
I declare myself incapable to determine this.
While I tend to think there is no outside god, I am unable to see anything not god. Only our ego mind seems to create and observe a division between what is god. And what not.

A few weeks ago I asked what I thought was quite a serious, searching question about the existence of God, and was rather disappointed when it got a very limited response. (This could have been because we were all wrestling this other equally important issues at the time.)Peter Lopez made a valiant...

There are many who are atheist and agnostic because they either don't know or don't believe God exists. Creation tells us that God exists but atheist explain Him away with evolution and Big Bangs. So, my question is, how can God prove Himself to the point where there would be no doubt? The Book of...

What Would You Do If You Were Faced With Completely Irrefutable Evidence That There Was No God?And I mean completely. As irrefutable as 1+1=2. I asked my friend about this and he had a mini-breakdown so I thought I'd ask you guys. Still not certain if I'm just unsatisfied with his answer or I'm...

Do you think god was given a name out of fear?Let me explain my logic, which would you be more terrified of? If a doctor told you that you have a serious case of the Flu or if the doctor told you that you have an unknown illness? Most of you will immediately answer the unknown illness, even if it's...
