Yup. I don't think any religion really knows what God is like though. I believe that God is more like the sum of all consciousness in this universe and all others, both dead and alive.
I've read the Bible from cover to cover multiple times. I don't believe what I do because I'm uneducated, I believe it because of the plethora of other information that doesn't fit with everything the Bible says. It's still written by Man.
I have no doubts
I believe there is a possibility, but that being said, I think other religions have the possibility to being true as well.
So I ignore most their rules, live how I live, and will later accept my ending, whatever it may be
Yes, very definately.
I think it's a strong rational possibility.
Maybe, maybe not. No proof. And the fact that the universe exists is not proof.
no, i used to believe there was a god,i used to pray, and then my 2 year old son tragicly died by drowning and while they were trying to resuscitate him i asked god for help,i prayed and prayed please lord let my baby live and i promise i will forever live the way u want me to,and be the best christian i can be,just please lord let my baby live,and he didnt! i dont beleive there is a god,and if there is,he isnt a god i would ever pray to again or ask for help or anything. people would tell me just put all your saddness in gods hands,just give it to god,and i told them i did,and he didnt help me, and others would tell me god didnt take your son from you, and i would telll themif he is god the one who created heaven and earth,night and day and everything else then he could have let my baby live! he is god he can do anything and if there is a god,then he would have known how much i ment what i said about being a good christian and that i would have followed thru and that i needed my son.and love him. if there is a god,he is a cruell and vengfull god,and is not one i would ever worship again,so many horrible things happen to children every minut of every day,and he could stop it all if he wanted to,he is god, peope say butt god doesnt want to control people cause then it would b a perfect world,and he doesnt want robots,,why? cause there is no entertainment in that! anyone who has the power to stop a child from being kindnapped raped murdered and tossed in a dumpser some were and dont use that power and stop it, is not worthy to be praised! praised for what? sorry this question has been one that i have had built up inside of me for the past two years and i have kept it inside.
Of all of the possible explanations of why the universe exists, and why it is the way it is, a guy up in the sky who looks just like us, but has superpowers sounds beyond ridiculous to me. I find the idea that there is a creator, that is just like humans, but has magic powers to be very self serving for mankind. I think people often invent stories to make themselves feel better about the unknown and unknowable, and that is where god comes from.
I think so and I'm sort of christian, but I think the bible is not of gods true words, but interpretations of his words. However, I think these interpretations.
I don't mean to bore you, but listen to this; according to the bible, satan killed 10 people, BUT! God killed over 10 million and he's meant to be the good guy? There's something wrong there!
Oh, and I'm not one of those people who say all other religions are wrong!
Only as a belief. Not as you imagine it, overseeing all and controlling the universe like a puppet-master.
In my opinion, I think whether there is a God or not is unknowable, at least in this lifetime.
Faith. I can't seem to find it within myself so that's my final answer at this time :) If something miraculously changes my mind, I shall shout if from the roof tops, but for now, I am still searching.
Only in our minds
No, I don't think so. I look around and see all the misery on this planet and can't believe a loving God would (or could) allow it to continue.
Many people share this point of view. I can understand it to a degree. But to me, it's like hating the school because a bully beat up another kid in their playground. God didn't cause people to be horrible to each other, he just created the place where it all can happen... Good, bad, everything.
Watch the video I just loaded on my page. He makes some very good points.
