    God? Who Or What You Are To Me

    In my childhood, I was raised on Jesus and God, but they were mostly cuss words; God blank it and Jesus Blank Christ; I knew God's last name was not damn it and he only allowed that for beavers! As I got old enough to read, I chose to pick up a Bible and search the scriptures for...

    Praying

    Praying is not about asking God for what you want but Thanking God for what he has given you already, for what the LORD has given is truly a blessing, and when we Pray to God pray thanking him for what he has done for us. Sure it's alright to pray For the LORD to watch over...

    I Do Not Believe There Is A God.

    My faith in God has been all over the place

    My God

    To me god is what I hold most high. The greatest dream that I can conceive. The greatest aspiration that I can imagine. What's not to believe in? The being my hopes and dreams might help one day evolve into being. In that sense, "the son of man".

    God is too inconvenient to man's independence

    for Him to be artificial. Why invent a nagging deity whose main hobby is to elude the notice of humanity? Why preserve a book if its purpose is to troll future humans and the ancient pranksters will not even be able to have the last laugh?

    God exists, no doubt. I've had spiritual experiences; I've seen spiritual experiences; God's existance is not up for debate: he exists whether you like or it not. God's existance is not dependent on your or anyone's belief in him. There is so much undeniable proof for God that no...

    Since I Started This.

    I may as well share first. I believe in the Christian God, but more as Plato's unmoved mover than an active deity. I do not, however, believe in the Christian religion. It has too many pagan elements that it encompassed as it expanded.
