If God keeps testing me and I keep failing, why keep testing?
If God keeps causing me to endure unbearable tragedies in order to test my faith, and every time I FAIL, what is the point of continuing to put further tragedies upon me? Being omnipotent, does He not know, by now, that every time He does this I will lose my faith in Him? Is He just trying to goad me into cursing Him, so that I will be condemned forever?
In relation to "God," I doubt the ability of the human mind to think rationally.
Why do you think god is testing you? Everyone goes through difficulties in life. Crap happens to us all.
Stop trying to rely on god to fix whatever problems you are having. Do what you need to do to help yourself and your family. Prayer isn't going to work. Blame isn't going to work.
If you cannot fix things yourself, then seek help from real humans and not some invisible sky daddy.
Lela, I should have wrote this question in third person instead of first person. I want to know why believers still hold on to this illogical concept. I don't believe in any divine entities.
The question was phrased in the first person, so that is how I responded.
Did your earthly "fadder" ever give up on you? Perhaps he was relentless until you learned? Then again he is your earthly fadder and is not as loving as your other Father...
John, this is the type of evasive folly I expected to hear from believers. I guess terms like "omniscience" have no real meaning to you, huh?
You are correct; the older I become the less I know. Yet I do indeed believe; although, I certainly can only pray for you to eventually come around too...
Your own beliefs are also a little mixed up to, I perceive: "I am not a Conservative (far from it; after all I am a practicing Catholic)" is a laughable contradiction. It's like thinking a person who is Catholic is not superstitious.
You sound like an aspiring Atheist. Your capacity to reason should soon set in and you will be Atheistic. It is the only reasonable path in life as contrived fear and guilt are detrimental to the human mind.
Actually, it was these kinds of illogical concepts that drove me to atheism. I am, in fact, an atheist.
since you are an atheist, then GOD is not testing you. He has washed his hands of you and you are in the devils domain. his purpose is to destroy you before you can get to Christ
I think the point of the question is why would anyone keep believing in a god if it kept testing them over and over again. And of course, you will say that it is not god that is doing the testing. But you always forget that god can stop it and doesnt
You are funny Charlie. All these years and you still have people listening to your religious rant. And still in fear of the make-believe.
Charlie, I see that even though it is the 21st century, some people still need to hold on to ancient beliefs in imaginary phantoms, that are only within the pages of fairy tales. Laughable but ultimately disturbing.

Do you agree that a man is known by the company he keeps?Are we defined by our friendships or rather our friendships are mirrors of who we are?

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...

Is there a treatment for God addiction?. Excuse me for questionng everything. Never did get the illusion of blood or body of Jesus metaphor, it seem like vampire-ism or cannibalism. Never got these wars over imaginary friends or killing someone for working on Sunday. This karma runs over the dogma....

Why is it more comfortable to make things up about people of Different beliefs?There have been a rash of questions and answers lately from people (mainly self professing Christians) asking why atheists hate God, etc. Rather than listening to what atheists day and explain about...
