Not until you prove to me you will be open minded.

religion doesn't sell s***

It was founded by God and people chose to go to church and worship, nobody has a gun to our heads.

second of all bigfoot, Nezzy and alll them things didn't create 1,000s of years of miracles to go with the prophecies.

Nezzy didn't part the red sea, and bigfoot didn't found a church, come to Earth and work tons of miracles.

so you didn't even think out your points.

I'm, done here.

Hmmm. Some interesting points on the preceding pages. However the real point here is that the OP question is too broad in its scope. I believe in a God. It might not be the same God the OP is thinking of, but then I doubt any two people in the world believe in exactly the same God - that's kind of the point, isn't it?

The reality is, however many questions science answers, however unjust the world seems, there will always be a why and wherefore that precedes our understanding. Or so it seems to me.

Simply reaching the point where civilisatioin is able to question the existence of an omnipotent or creating power is not the same as reaching a point where it's absurd to believe in a God.

The real answer here is that believing in a God is easier than believing in nothing. And not necessarily less reasonable, either.

Why I believe in God? Because its the truth. Why I believe in God? Because He has shown me he's here. Why I believe in God??? Because the proves are out their IF YOU HAVE A OPEN MINE. Like JesusisTruth said.

Life after death is a big gamble and where you spend it is even bigger.

God bless

Well can you prove any of those, because none of those have happened to me...

And Jesus is not truth...

Your theosis is a paradox.

How can you honestly not believe in god?

Because science says no?

Has 'science' been figured out yet? Is science 'whole'? How much science does it take to figure out what came first, the egg or the chicken? And what came before the egg? And how did the egg form? And how did the first microbial life evolve into a insect? How did the first mammal evolve? How did the universe start? How did the big bang happen?

The list goes on. I'm sure you got a answer for all of them, but how is it scientifically proven when there is no knowledge of how any of it really happened, considering it's all a big theory.

How can you honestly believe what your seeing is real and not just a dream?

....

I'll put you in a paradox you won't ever come out of.

Oh yeah, and btw, you spelled *HEXADECIMAL* wrong.

Care to indulge on what a HEXADECIMAL is? or how BINARY is processed? Heh.....

Play with fire and you'll be burned.

Why do i believe in God!

Well God is love. And to know God you need to feel something as well.

By just having knowledge you wont feel love or understanding.You would need proof to acknowledge that God has to exist first. Because you cant feel him.

God is a inspiration given to us. And you have to feel that inspiration to know God. You will not find God by Googling the nett or reading the books. You have to feel and know what the inspiration is. It is the only way you will find any knowledge of God. If you dont feel anything you have to look for something you surly wont find anywhere.

The goodness inside you is the inspiration you should use as knowledge to figure out what God is all about. Then you might understand all this.

You cannot prove he exists. I know there's going to be people that say, "Well, you can't prove he dosn't either". So? I guess then I'll worship Bigfoot, The Easter Bunny, The Loch Ness monster, or any other mythical beast. You can't prove they dont exist either. "Theres no proof it does or doesn't, so it exists." I guess Wizards, Giants, heck, even Lygars exist.

Prove to me, your god. Why do you believe.


Lygers or Ligers are real so I guess God can be too.

Can you prove to me that God doesnt exist? I believe that God exists because of certain things Ive experienced that tell me that he is there - its just like being in love.... no one can tell you that you are, you just know.

Romans 8:24-27............"For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But If we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Likewise, the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit Itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the believers according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose."

Romans 8:38-39................"For I am persuaded, that neither death, not life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

This is why I believe!

Fatih is a very personal walk one has with the Father. I believe we are all the creation of the Father and therefore all of us have a *spark* somewhere in our spirit.

Psalms 139: 13-15 Here King David gives another account of why I beieve.

"For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother's womb, I praise you because I am fearfuly and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well, My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place."

Wow, how cool is that! God knew me as he created me!

You see my heart, mind, body, and soul all can relate to what King David is saying here. I feel the samething in my spirit. And God's Spirit becomes one with my spirit, then the essence of these words become divine knowledge.

It is the Father's desire that all his chilfren come back to him, but he will not use force. It has to be our own will to return. What good is love if it is forced upon someone to do so? It then means nothing. This *spark* at some point becomes a burning flame and we know we belong to the Creator. I bleive we all come to the Father through the means of our own path. Sadly, not everyone will feel that little spark and it will not become the beautiful flame it was meant to be.

We are to be a light in the darkness. As a believer I can only hope that my *light* does shine so brightly and clearly to show others the way home.


Peace to all

Grandma
