Faith = beliving in something without proof or undeniable evidence.
If your religeon is only faith based then you must admit that you may be being lied to. Denial of fact and truth could not possibly be the design of
an inteligent all powerful creator. In my book fact and truth is what you can see period.
Well Ill continue on my journy and my mind remains open =) and I am certainly open to listening to god if he would like to come say hello.
First, let me say congratulations on your graduation into thinking for yourself! Coming from a fundamentalist background myself, I know how confusing
it can be to doubt something that you once believed infallible.
I always hear people say, "If there's a God why doesn't It give me proof that It's there." or "I'll only believe that something exists if I can
see, touch, hear, taste, or smell it." While I can understand the inability of some people to believe in what they cannot prove, I think it is a
very narrow view of things.
primary reason for believeing in an infinite God, albeit not the Bible version, is the fact that we are all just energy particles vibrating
on different frequencies. So is everything else that we assume to be real and tangible, in our universe.
Everything, including people, when broken down to the smallest possible particle, is made up of the same components. That means the computer screen
you are reading this on, is ultimately made of the same thing you are.
The incredible part of this is that every time physicists think they have found the most basic, fundamental particle that exists, a smaller component
eventually gets discovered (currently "preons" are the smallest particles). It would appear that the cycle of smaller parts that contain still
smaller parts, could be infinite.
Yet despite the fact that the physical world is anything but physical, we are self-aware and have a conscious mind. Quantum physics perfectly
Basically, what quantum theory says is that fundamental particles are empty of inherent existence and exist in an undefined state of potentialities.
They have no inherent existence from their own side and do not become 'real' until a mind interacts with them and gives them meaning. Whenever and
wherever there is no mind there is no meaning and no reality. home.btclick.com...
To me this is proof that there is an infinite consciousness performing the function of the Observer, and everything that exist is just a manifestation
of It's observations.
This is the reason you cannot demand proof of God and it is also why you cannot "find" God by searching with a predetermined concept of what It will
be. God is everywhere you look, and if you stop thinking about seeing proof of It's existance, you can't miss it. Western churches teach that
meditation is evil and opens us up to demonic possession, but this is untrue. Probably the most important verse of the Bible, with regards to the
search for God, says "Be still and know that I am God". In other words, stop thinking with your brain, shut up and let yourself feel the Truth. No
one will ever find God by reading a book, even if God wrote it Itself. Once you realize that God IS the Bible, not inside it, everything else will
start to make sense. I don't think anyone should read the Bible until after they have "found" God. Once you make that spiritual connection it is
much easier to discern the lies from the Truth in all things, including the Bible. I recommend reading about as many ancient religions as you can.
It is incredible how many similarities exist throughout the world. IMO Truth is Truth and nothing can change it.
Good luck on your quest! It's a neverending process, but worth the effort.
