There is a God and he is a gracious, kind and just God. He even gives you a choice for your eternal soul.. to kneel before him or burn in hellfire for eternity. Only a just and gracious Lord would give us such a choice. Praise the Lord.

You are God. So, yes, there is.
Now you may be asking yourself, "If I'm God, then why don't I feel like God?"
Well, it's because God created this huge Universe and life so that he/she could play small roles (you, me, a cat, etc.) to "feel" what not being a God is like. After we die, all our experiences are returned to the source and lessons are learned, compassion gained.
When you are God, you get bored with controlling everything. So you become the controlled to switch it up.

The existance of pure evil convinced me when I lived in a house where witch craft had been practised. I was a nominal christian at best then. I would wake up paralyzed in the night and eventually got to where I would "know" when the evil was present. It was so hateful it was terrifying. I have never been hated like that in my life. I told my pastor about my problems and he didn't believe a house could be possessed, so I was left on my own. It's a long story, but it all came to a head one evening when "it" manifested in my kitchen like a cloud at head level. It is so hard to explain how I knew it was there. I stopped what I was doing and pointed directly at it and commanded it in Jesus name to leave. Poof! It was gone. How can the name of Jesus have any authori8ty over something like that? The thing wasn't done with me. It came back twice and I had to deal with it each time.
Fast forward a couple years after that and my faith was growing deeper and richer. I was doing house hold chores and just having a pleasant time and opened myself up to loving God with my whole heart. I was CRAVING the presense of Jesus and it was like I wasn't in the room anymore....I was with him. I have never felt such love in my life. When I came back to myself, I felt brand spanking new. I walked around for weeks just loving everyone to the fullest and for the first time I was comfortable in my own skin. I instantly developed a dislike for christian radio and christian books. I felt like they were merely a replacement for a relationship with an awesome God. Scripture became absolutely alive and I became aware of so much pride in the christians in my life. at the same time, I had the Holy Spirit working on my attitude towards others when they fall short. The whole thing was so humbling and life giving to me.
I wish everyone could have this experience and I believe it is possible. I think back to the time before this happened and it was like I was not totally alive.
I just know that I know we were created and we are loved by our creator Father more than you can ever imagine and he has a purpose for everyone of us.

Like everyone else out there, I'm looking for answers to my cosmic questions, and God is one of them. A lot of posts here at this great website seem to ask such things as "How literally do you take the Bible," etc. What I want to know is, do you believe there is a God, if you do, why, and if you don't, why not?
Now my definition of God is an entity that is omnipotent and omnipresent. Now, I don't mind if you think God is dead, but back it up. Feel free to explore the question of "what is God," but try to tell me...is there a God?
Congratulations on reaching the next step in human evolution.
Must there have been something first? The universe is expanding into pre-existing space...
