I Want to Know If You Believe In God, and Why Or Why Not

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 45 People

    Why Not? Well, Because...

    Not Just God, the Triune God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

    I Believe

    I believe in God because I see and feel the presence of God everywhere in nature.  Strangely enough, it is all the evil in the world that bolsters my belief.  When I see how horrendously evil humanity can be, I know in my heart that there is an opposing force of pure...

    I Believe In The Existence Of The Triume God Described In The Bible

    Why, 1. Epistemologically-selfsciouness requires in the belief in the God. As the French existentialist Sartre said, If one does not have an infinite reference point, then everything is meaningless and absurd. The Christian God is both personal and infinite. The fundamental...

    Avoid Belief... In Anything.

    The first step to a closed mind is belief.  Whether it is faith or fact based.  Don't believe!!! It's a mind killer.

    Absolutely

      Yes, I believe in God, more than I do anything else. I believe because I've made it this far by his grace. I've been in situations that I thought I'd never get through. I've just wanted simple things, I've prayed-and it happened. I've been in bad situations *by my own...

    I'm Sorry But I Believe Faith In God Is a Hindrance

    Here's what I've discovered and it's pretty simple- The idea of a higher power was invented to explain the unknown. But eventually mankind started discovering scientific explainations for life's mysteries, including how we came to be here. Thanks to the curiosity...
