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

    I believe in God the Father, Jesus his son and the Holy Spirit.  Three pesons, one God.  Why?  Because I'm a logical person and there is too much evidence indicating He is the one and only true God.  And frankly, I don't have enough FAITH to believe in any of...

    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...

    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 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...

    The Problem Of Non God objects

    I heard of this argument from a podcast but I had a similar idea, but Justin Schieber has fleshed it out a bit more. Sheiber provides a nine-point argument: There is a possible world (P) that is God existing alone, and nothing else existing. God is a perfect being. Therefore P...

    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.

    I believe that faith is wishful thinking. I have not seen even one scintilla of tangible, reproducible, empirical evidence for the existence of any god, not just the christian deity. No one has ever been able to produce such evidence, despite centuries of trying to do so. This...

    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...
