I Want to Believe In God

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 110 People

    It Would Be Nice, But It Seems Too Ridiculous.

      I really think I would enjoy actually believing in some sort of a god, and being a part of a religious community.  I love the music, and the American cultural history of community churches.  But I cannot get myself to believe what seems like a strange and...

    I cant put my hand on my heart and truly believe I am where I am today without some kind of help along the way.  I mean the help from up above, some people call their God by a personal name, am not sure if the name is really important as long as you know what your talking...

    I Want to Believe In God

    I truly want to believe in God, I was raised in a catholic family, and I used to have faith when I was a kid. Now I'm 18 years old and my faith is gone. I'm currently studying physics; everything in science is based on facts, if you can't prove it, then it doesn't exist. I would...

    You Do? Why?

    Christian god: ~demands you love him first ~needs you to believe in him with no proof ~sometimes offers affection, but it's always fleeting ~requires you to follow and look for him forever ~is jealous: you're not allowed to shop around for a deity that suits you better ~promises...

    Skeptic Who Wants To Believe

    I'm 19 years old and I was raised in a non-religious family. My dad used to say "I go to a round church where the devil can't corner me." That was the most we ever talked about religion. I've always considered myself agnostic as I was skeptical about God. I have always been...

    I want to believe but religion seems to be the opposite of what i am. I was taught religion but i never believed in it. The idea of god seems real to me but i have never found a religion that seems to call to me.

    Sometimes, Things Are So Hopeless.

    I don't believe in God like a lot of people do - I don't worship any deity or lord, I don't praise him, I don't claim to have anything special.  I'm just a relatively normal kid with a bad outlook on life and horrible social skills.  In short, I'm alone in this world...

    I pray at night, and I just try to get myself to believe to no avail. I just can't believe. My mind won't let me. There isn't logic, yet at the same time, people have believed for so long. Is there anybody today that can say that they actually saw God and have proof? No. But is...
