I believe in God, but I don't understand Him.
I don't believe in God. I don't have a problem with people who do, as long as they are not harming anyone or anything and then using some perversion of the bible to justify their actions. I know a lot of people who take great comfort in their beliefs and i don't see a problem with that.
I was a Christian for 16 years, I tried to look for evidence to prove God and found that there was nothing to show God exists and didn't exist any reason for God to exist. When I took logic courses I saw how logic works and saw that atheism was the logical conclusion.
Thanks for your response, it makes a lot of sense, unlike the "pseudoscience" of intelligent design that proponents like "Discovery Institute" like to throw out there.
As someone who has taken logic courses etc., I still can't say whether God exists or not..but I'm not ready to give up yet..knowledge and/or understanding are not acquired in a few short years, especially of something as perplexing and infinite as the concept of a God..
I don't believe in God. I just believe in Karma and goodness. I know that there is a force that controls everything. That's what I believe. I don't force my opinion on others.
What do you think that force is?
If I would have known, I would be Prophet Zaran.
I don't know.<br />
Since I was a kid.
I believe... but still wonder
I believe too, but also wonder...look at it this way...the human cell and all its components...we didn't know it was there until the microscope was invented...what is it that we cannot see...maybe God is standing right in front of us. Just a thought...
Maybe he is. or maybe he's not. Life after death? Or just faith cause it's comfort? If we do get reincarnated do we get born in the same family just generations down the line or do we switch with all the creatures here on earth?
"Some times it's best not to wonder were our footprints might be going"
As much as I wonder I believe that god does exist. Although it may not be for certain there is a god I rather have faith in something that might or might not exist then to have no faith in anything.
I love this quote: "Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable and receives the impossible" Corrie Ten Boom
Wow that's a short way of making what I just said more understandable. I like that. never heard that quote before thank you for sharing :)
God survives on man
I believe in the Trinity. I found God when I was 36 after I had tried many other empty religions. When I searched for God with all of my heart, I found him. I said the "Sinner's Prayer" and was indwelled by the Holy Spirit in an amazing way. He's never left me. : D
I don't go to church as much as I should but I kind of believe In god I guess.. It's always good to respect peoples different religious views even if ur not into it I guess
I'm a catholic worried he is becoming an atheist.
inbox me if you'd like to compare ideas please :)
There is no longer a need for you to worry about that, the pope just said atheists can go to heaven! http://www.catholic.org/news/hf/faith/story.php?id=51077
I guess if you were a true atheist you wouldn't have to worry about it ;)
That's really cool. Atheism is one of the ways of thought that still faces a fair amount of persecution in the world...along with any person in general living in certain countries.
I believe in a creator of the universe. Energy just doesn't appear. That's simple physics. I've have a very scientific mind. I believe fundamentalist and people that can't open their minds wether Religious or Atheist are limiting themselves to so much. I was raised Methodist and Catholic. Both believe and admittedly preach that a lot of stories in the bible are just that. But the Catholic Church has had the stanch that homosexuality is a sin. I don't believe that. I think Jesus the historical figure was an incredible man and he taught some beautiful things I can relate to. With all of that being said I believe in angels and demons and a world that most humans can't comprehend. I think God ( the creator) loves everything and everyone. I think there is a hell in the sense that it's a place that has the absence of any love. I don't think you have to bra Christian to receive that love. I also believe that ever human action plays a part in the karma of the universe. God doesn't make bad things happen but it does allow it. I've witnessed some medical miracles. Things that can not be proven through science. Lol anyway that's my 2 cents.
To be brief, God is a machine.
My thoughts on God is that God represents morals and spirituality. Since people are putting more faith in science in technology people are starting to believe it's an entity that doesn't exist. God also represents the bible and basic fundamentals about religious morals as a whole. Case in point, about homosexuality. People want to rewrite the rules and say same sex is good. When in fact, homosexuality and orgies were part of celebrations to praise pagan gods. Basically praising Satanic or Dark Spirits. People look for enlightenment within darkness these days. And consider righteousness and morals "in the way." I love God. Whoever doesn't? That's their cross to bare. NOt mine. But trying to convince me God doesn't exist is like talking to a brick wall. It won't get you anywhere. -Except maybe your forehead busted wide open.
I believe John 3:16. When I was a teenager...I was at this church service messing around writing notes with my friends and couldn't wait for the service to end. The pastor had an altar call...for some reason, I had to go down. I didn't want to at all...It was embarrassing, what would my friends think. I couldn't stay in the pew any longer...as I walked down the aisle, I felt a gentle, strong, warm feeling behind me, I remember, I went to look back (at my friend's of course), but I couldn't... I went to the altar that day...I have no idea why.
I definitely wasn't looking for it and I don't even know why I experienced it. I'm not sure how God works, but I can tell you that there is something there without a doubt.
I respect other people's religions. I however don't believe in God, but more in spirits. Call it nutty, but it's just something I believe.
Like when people pass away, they reside in a spiritual place rather than a heaven or hell. I also believe in the spirits of the earth and other things relating close to that.
My great-grandmother taught me.... God is awesome and powerful
My thoughts on God are irrelevant. What I mean to say is tt wouldn't change my circumstances if he were to exist versus if he were not to exist. I cannot prove the existence of God.
