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

Why do you, those that do, believe in God?
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.

Well can you prove any of those, because none of those have happened to me...
And Jesus is not truth...

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
