many people say that god has right over our life?..my simple question is why do you think that is so ?
God has a right to my life because He made me.
so maker has default right is what you are saying?..okie..i got that..
As it appears that every person's God is different, it would seem that you have made your own God as well as God having made you. You therefore have a right to God's life just as He has a right to yours.
We have many attribute which we know did not originate from ourselves neither our parents.
Some are still ignorant and by such the attribute it to a False God.
Others understand fully and by such they attribute to Truth which is God.
Many might need to believe in a higher power because of the limited mind set. Meaning not knowing their own power they possess.
First off, I don't think God has right on me and my life, I know He has right. Why? Because without Him I wouldn't even have life. Nor would anyone else.
He is the giver of life. We in turn should put the gift He's given us back into His hands so that He can make it all He intended it to be.
Could you please tell us ; what is right and how the right is created on one?
As someone else said, yes He has all rights because He is the Creator.
To pennyofheaven: Believing in a higher power does not diminish the inner strength of a person. In fact, it gives them more strength to accomplish great things. Take Mother Teresa for example. People who have a belief in God utilize their power to the best of their abilities because they know they have a mission.
People have no need to believe in a god to do great things.
Mother Teresa is a poor example considering she has come under fire and criticism for some of her scandalous acts.
What if by solid belief, you could move beyond what is considered normal human capabilities. You do know, of course, that that is part of the promise.
Oh, and just why are you so concerned about servitude to a non-existant sky fairy?
While it is easy and self-gratifying to fantasize about such things, reality exhibits something quite different.
why do you add a smiley face at the end of all your condescending statements? its kind of creepy!
Why do offer personal insults in light of discussion?
sorry for any personal insults...didn't mean to, I just feel a little condescended to and would rather that you do that straight out instead of adding a silly smiley face at the end of it to implicate some kind of niceness.
i didnt say that people need a god to do great things. i was merely stating that strength is not diminished by believing (as pennyofheaven implied in her post.) it can go both ways.
Oh, but it can have that effect, and does. Believers sit around praying for things to happen rather than getting off their *** and doing it themselves.
Mother Teresa: she admits that she ‘had not faith.’ Her letters reveal that for over fifty years she sought Christ but came to the conclusion that he was ‘the Absent One’. Her prayers to God for forgiveness only deepened her sorrow. The letters further reveal that her outward demeanor to the work did not reveal the sadness of her heart. She said that her ‘smile was a fake’.
Mother Teresa did say she felt mystic about Jesus, I feel the same, and find the translation in the Bible are often wrong
I agree that it doesn't diminish strength. My post was pointing at the limitations of the mind. It is commonly known we do not use all the power of the mind that we possess. If believing in a God helps use more of their own power than it is useful.

Every one of the first three members of Alcoholics Anonymous had received Christian upbringing. Each had studied the Bible. Each believed in God. And each was cured of alcoholism by the power of God and said so.For example, the most powerful statement of this point by both A.A. Number One and A.A....

Why do most people see "Faith" as a point of weakness?Fear being, lack of faith and faith being lack of fear. To me, to have faith takes great courage.

Do you think the ENEMY attacks us by making us want what we cannot have?Fate gives us what we have whether we like it or not. Whether we have plenty or little, it is our fate. Do you think satan tortures those who long for what they cannot have? Do you think he is happy to have you see the...
