"Do you believe in God, and why?"
Me: Yes, because he is good, and I believe that everything the Bible says is true. Believing in Him and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, makes a lot of sense.
Logically, We have made God exist from the dawn of Creation. It is not accidental. There is an inner search for meaning which is in all souls and has been there from the dawn of time.
That which does not exist, can not come into being. That which exist, can never cease to be. For a dead cat, it is only a lump of flesh. What we like is the 'Thing' that gives it life. If you are dead, what good is this existence to you? You exist and so the world exist. This is the same for all.
Books are helpful, but they can only tell of the lives of others. Does God exists? If we mystics start talking to you ... if you did not understand, we'll confuse you.
There's no such thing as an atheists as every one loves. What is needed is the mystical embodiment of this 'sweetness' in the spiritual Heart. Get a glimpse of it and you will remember it all your life. God is very real but has to be an individual experience. You are a mystical being. You are the soul, not the body. Peace.
Yes, yes. I believe in God. Where could I be without Him?
I believe in God and out of the three major monotheistic religions Christianity is the only one that, to me, fully displays the loving nature of God.
I don't know that I'd say I think everything in the Bible is true. Yes, by my understanding, but certainly not by others.
I believe for a different reason that how I was brought up to believe. God literally proved Himself to me. Ok I got born again at age 8, but back then nobody told me much about God or Jesus other than I was now going to heaven. They failed to teach me because they did not know the things that I have since learned. From age 8 to age 40 something, I lived just like the world lives, I cussed, partied, acted like a fool, had a child out of wed lock, tried to get my life straight, but struggled with marriage and divorce. But I sought Him about my life, about what to do. I did not know that I have an enemy who attacked me because i did not know how to fight back. Its a defeated enemy but I did not know that for most of those years. Then Lord started making Himself known to me sometime in 2003. He has shown me how to take authority over the enemy, how to live my life as a daughter of a King. Since then i have seen a vision of He and I standing together,during Hurricane Isabel. and i was not asleep, lol, it was an actual vision. I learned that I have power, by speaking His words, I got attacked of cancer in Nov. 2018, and got healed within a few weeks time. . I spoke healing scriptures 3xs daily, and still went to get chemo, but I felt like it was not needed. But others around me didnt know what I had learned, they were worried. Then amazing things happened in the hospital. The tumor shrunk down flat the first night. It shocked the nurses. People would say, Wow the chemo is making you well! But I was not sure about that. So one night while I was laying there in my room, watching American Pickers marathon, I felt this wonderful love feeling in my core, it was so lovable it made me giggle because I KNEW Who it was! Then He spoke up inside of me saying this, " Your healing is in My Word!" i was so wowed by this! A short time later I stopped the chemo, insisted on a pet scan and there it was , NO CANCER. There is SO much more to this story. Having a Jesus connection is a daily thing, He speaks me constantly, usually in a tiny voice that feels like a thought but Ive come to recognize that it is Him. I should write more on my profile about my experiences with Him. So to answer the question why do I believe in God? Because He has been SO faithful to me and has proven Himself to me over and over again. Ive seen Him, Ive heard Him, He answers my prayers, etc. He is amazing! Everyone should get born again just to get to know Him.
Thanks for sharing PeggyannZ. I'm touched by your story.
To those who believe in God, he exists and helps them.
This is why so many non-believers simply do not find discourse with believers to be of much value.
That statement, "To those who believe in God, he exists and helps them." is exactly what we tell our small children about Santa Claus...and as truth and reality carries the same value.
Wilderness, you're welcome. I was thinking of men and women like. Peggy Annz, who come in simple child-like trust. But thank goodness. You hit the nail righ on the head. If that simple statement works for small boys and girls before Santa, how really will it work for seekers God? It does!
I believe that if one believes in God, one takes on a huge responsibility. Taking on this responsibility often leads to suffering though standing up for what one believes.
Are you willing to stand up for your love?
For instance if you love God, do you stand up for no sex before marriage?
For NOT allowing any unborn child to be terminated?
Do you stand up for NOT allowing the freezing of embryos?
Are you willing make your beliefs regarding these and other unpopular issues known to others, (who are willing to listen?)
Or just keep quiet.
Kathryn, I agreed. Melcome to the discussion. I and you talk over this a year ago. But I'm really wondering why you mention sex which you didn't like?
Funny? Ye ye ye, he hi eh! That aside, do you really believe in sex? It seems to me that the God I and you believe could not "be"/manifest as a human being without this your so called tantric yoga or the sex act?
Sex is for the purpose of procreation. Of course, people like feeling close to their chosen one, so they have sex to express their love, as well.
However, when a person tricks another into sex by pretending to love them, it is a very sad thing. When a person tricks another by acting and putting on a show of wonderfulness, (when they are anything but,) for the purpose of having sex, it is a very sad thing.
I hate sex when it is used for the purpose of tricking another for the sake of one's own ego gratification. Not everyone has the capacity to love another. But that's what sex is for ... or it's a very sad thing.
Also, I doin't understand how people can have one-night stands. It is against human nature. Humans have the higher capacity to truly and deeply love. That is the type of love that should bring a child into the world.
Is this you Kathryn? You're a wondeful person. Blessings of heaven above and the earth beneath!

WHY do you believe, or not believe in God?I believe because my logic leads me to two points.1) if there is a lowest, then there is a highest.2) just because I can't name, nor prove, that there is a highest number... doesn't prove there isn't one. My logic states there is one, however that number...

Many believers like to say that Atheists should prove that there is no God. Believers should know that existence has to be proved, not the non-existence. If a thing exists, it is possible to prove its existence. So believers should prove the existence of God if he exists. But if they want to do it,...

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 are people offended when others don't accept their faith? If you are sure, why be upset?Christ never tried to convince anyone to believe in him. He had a purpose, lived it out and people believed on the power of God within him. Why get so defensive?

I refuse to prove that I exist, says God, for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway isn't it? It proves you exist, and so therefore, you don't," "Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and...
