Only Way To Keep Religions Going.

The reason this has to be done is because no reasonable 18-year-old is going to believe in a man in the sky, if they weren't raised having that belief put into their heads since before they could even think for themselves. Sure, some are "born again," but I'd wager that 99% of people aren't going to believe something so outrageous once they're an adult if they were never exposed to it.

The Bible says " there is a way that seems right to man and that leads to destruction" so even sc<x>ripture tells us God said mans reasoning would be his own demise. Imagine that 1500 years ago.

None of you who're claiming you've felt "God" heard of a god until you were an adult? Because that's what I was saying.

Qcali, everything you stated can just as easily be attributed to Santa Claus as to the zombie of Nazareth, this my friend is what they call the sticking point. When you credit an invisible, silent and aloof being with miracles, it begs wonder at the miracles (until closely inspected) but leaves open to conjecture the purveyor.

The day you can prove to me that what i felt when the Lord touched me isn't real then i will believe you. the day u can prove to me that my brothers skin disease healing was not a miracle from God then i will believe you. The day you can prove to me how my alcoholic father left his vice of many yrs. from one day to another and willingly gave his life to God then I will believe you but until then you will just be a person who the devil has confused with foolish ideas to me. the bible talks about ppl like you in Romans 1:18 untill ch.2. You should read it...it says that ppl like you, ppl that think they know it all and justify the worlds creation with corrupt ideas... To you i sound crazy ..but as iv said this world is so lost and if ur not pro gay than ur considered ignorant and close-minded ect ect. you will never be able to prove nothing to me. God is real. He loves you very much. open ur eyes to the truth.

HO, if this is true, how do you explain a 35 years man finding God and committing to Him, you need to made a distinction between religion and personal relationship.<br />
How do you explain a couple after 9 years of trying to have a baby, they tried everything that modern science provided, nothing worked, they Doctors told them, sorry there is nothing else we can do for you. They turn to God, prayed and within a year had a baby.<br />

There are things we know, things we do not know and things we know we don't know and things we don't know we don't know.

So true!
