I Wish I Could Believe In God

    But How Could I?

    One of my friends once said "How could I belive in God while my life is like it is? Why should I belive if I see people outside who are happier than I am and they don't belive in God?"  I agree. Here and there I almost can belive. But most of the time i don't.  I want...

    Evil Is The Answer

    Evil has an infinite power.Do you understand the overwhelming power of infinity?  You do not - the complete and absolute absence of good; the absolute deepest, purest evil that cannot be imagined, thought up or performed by a mere, simple human.  The most relatively...

    It's Not That I Don't Believe...i Just Wish I Didn't Have Doubts.

    I go back and forth on whether or not god exists. I want to believe, and I genuinely do feel like there's more to life than what we see, but at the same time...it just seems so IMPOSSIBLE that we exist outside of a functioning brain and circulatory system, that we're overseen by...

    I Wish I Had More Faith Then Doubt

    I was raised in two faiths.My mother was wiccan and would teach me its values but she also let my grand-mother teach me how to be a good catholic. Back then I had alot faith, I guess the innocence of childhood let me believe in both without taking away from the other. I...

    I've had a rough time the last few years.

    I really wish I could lean on something and have faith in God. I once was a christian, but as I never felt like God wanted anything from me, and never "answered" my prayers, I just had a really hard time believing. I want to try, but it's so hard. I wanna be a christian so if...

    Show Me.

     I believe in things I can see, feel, experience. I've never seen or felt god and I sure as hell haven't experienced any of his loving acts.

    Knowledge Makes Belief Impossible

    I was raised believing in God. I'd known no other way to believe until I was a senior in high school. At that time, I was briefly introduced to atheism. I remained Christian for three years, then started doubting and started thinking and looking at the way things are. I became a...

    I Wish I Could

    I really do wish I could believe in god and that there is a place you go when you die. It's just that I am to educated to have faith in something with no proof. You go through school and you see all of these explanations for things that the bible attributes to god. These are...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    But I Can't Find Proof...

    I have major issues with trying to believe in something that I can't see or something that has never been proven to be there, 100%. I try to think about how amazing God would have to be to be able to create the heavens (?) and earth and everything that we see and things that we...

    Maybe

    I don't think there was ever a time in my life when i believed in God.   When I was little, he was just some concept that made my parents wake me up early on Sunday and sit through a long boring hour on an uncomfortable, old, wooden bench. When I became a teenager...
