Okay... let me put it this way.
Can you see electricity? No? Well, then how do you know it exists?
Because you see the effects that electricity brings. You can't see the current. You only know that when you flip the switch, it brings electricity
through your house and powers your lights, fridge, computer and so on.
Do you know every secret about the universe? Do you understand what makes the cosmos do just exactly what they do? Why science even *works* the way
it does? Why we even have gravity, planets, natural laws that work they way they do?
You don't know all that?
Just because someone doesn't understand something... and sorry but we are only human!... just because I don't understand something with my little
mind doesn't mean I'm arrogant enough to say "it doesn't exist." That is incredibly childish. The bible says that "the fool says in his heart
there is no God." Not believing something does not mean it doesn't exist.
For me, how can you look at this world and *not* believe there's a God? Every tree... flower... blade of grass and star in the sky... they all
whisper His name. Religion and God are not necessarily the same, you must remember that. Yes people do make money off of religion. I don't believe
that's His doing. God doesn't dwell in buildings or require groups. He is in our hearts. We are born with a conscience of knowing good from bad.
Where do you think that comes from?
Personally... I can attest to God because I know that He hears me. He leads me and the bible says that if we ask Him to, He will do just that. When
I came to know the Lord several years ago, my life was a mess. Slowly but surely, after I asked His help, I started seeing the fruit of that in my
life and today I am a different and happier person. Somehow things just work out now. Even something bad, He turns it out for good. I don't have
all the answers, all I know is that He has always been there for me. He gives me dreams to help me avoid harm, if I listen to them... He speaks in my
heart... my family and I are always taken care of. Maybe not the way I think... but the way that we need.
A good example... if I let my little girl make all the decisions, she would eat candy all day long. That's what she thinks is good for her! She
would play in the rain if I let her and play in the street. But as her parent, I have to make decisions that sometimes she doesn't like, nor does
she understand because of her maturity level. If you choose to let God be your Daddy, your Heavenly Father, He will watch over you and things will
work out, He will make a way even if you can't tell what's head or tails from your perspective. Like it or not, as humans on this earth, we *need*
help. I'm not ashamed to admit it. But if you shun Him, push Him aside, then He'll do what you ask on that, too.
Just because you can't see something, or can't understand it, doesn't mean it's not there. Do you see the wind? Again - no. But you know it's
I know there are people who have done wrong things in religion... every religion out there has their share of nutcases. But you can't sterotype God
based on others. YOU are responsible for you. Ultimately, some day each of us will cease to exist. There are too many stories of those who have
seen the other side - I know there's an afterlife, a Heaven, & if there's an afterlife, there's a God. I want to be with Him - not against Him.
I don't need proof of how the wind works to know it's there. I don't need to understand or see electricity to know it's there. That would be
pretty silly & childish of me. I am hopefully mature enough to recognize there are some things I *don't* know and realize that I am not God...
someone else already has that job. I am His child, made in His image. I trust in Him and because I do, He leads me, helps me, guides me, answers
prayers the way He knows is best, and I have love and peace in my heart because of Him.
That's why I believe in God.
