Yes many poeple have raised great points of views, which all humans have thought about, but you uforget the concept of faith. To believe or have
faith in something higher than yourself is the most relaxing feeling. I know God exist because I feel him in my mind, body, and soul. He is apart of
me and every other human being in this world whether they know it or not.
Of course we cannot concieve the idea of God and life period because we did not create it. This idea is not meant for you to get becasue God is
just testing you to see whether you have faith in him or not. It all goes back to Adam and Eve, we lost God's trust in the Garden of Eden. So in
order for use to get that trust back we must show our faith in him.
Ok, so we all lost God's trust with Adam and Eve as you say? So you are saying that Adam and Eve is a true story of creation. Which means you are
saying that you believe in the bible. That means that you must believe that God is Omnipotent.
If God is Omnipotent, then he knows everything. Past, present, and future. That means that before he even created Adam and Eve, that he knew what
their choices would be. Otherwise He could not have known everything. He could not be all powerful unless this is true. If this is true, that means
that he must have created with the intent of these actions to be taken by Eve.
Explain to me how He could have lost trust in us for doing something that in reality, according to common Christian belief, we had no choice in? Here
comes the whole "we have free will" argument. (I agree) But, we cannot have free will if our actions are already known. If the future is layed
out anywhere, our choices are meaningless. They are not choices, rather actions that follow a predetermined path.
This is Unless, God does not know what actions we will take.
Now, you also talked about faith. You mentioned Adam and Eve, which means you do not subscribe to any evolution science. Let me make a point that I
make often on this board. Faith isn't faith if you know for sure. As a christian, you are supposed to have faith without proof. A test of true
loyalty to God.
If evolution does not exist, creationism must exist. Therefore God MUST exist. If God MUST exist, then there can be no faith in God. If evolution
does exist, then God may or may not exist. This is the only way for your faith to be real.
These two points I have made will just glide right over the heads of people who refuse to see the truth about reality. Reality is that we do not know
if their is a God. There are plenty of unanswered questions that leave room for Him though. The problem with religious people today is that they
don't check their facts. They believe without question. They listen to what other PEOPLE tell them about God. Rarely making up their own mind.
Rarely taking into account the real questions that make God possible. For instance, reborn_mind and AD5673. God cannot be what most people say He
is. Those people can see this, but refuse to admit it even to themselves.
