Forget all religions. Look at you, and the world of your feelings.

Answer all calls directly from the hearth, and you are in contact with your higherself.

That higher self is your god, its the pure part of you.

Ask God for that. Romans 12:3 says faith itself is a gift from God.

No man can "make" you believe, sorry.

Faith is faith my friend.

If you dont want to have faith in a higher being, than that is fine by me.

I dont sit on top of a soap box and try to get people to have faith.

my faith is personal with Jesus and God..it is my faith.

I have not been to church in 15 years, I have not read scripture in the same amount of time.

I still know the difference between right and wrong, and for you, you also know the difference between right and wrong, without a faith in a higher being

At the end of the day, this about faith. Some have a radical view of it. People like myself, we dont need the preacher and we dont need the book for our personal salvation.

Really, a thread about faith in the "Religion, Faith, and Theology" Forum?

Well first lets break down your statement..

please make me believe in God.

you dont get made to belive in god, you either know him or you dont.
what you really should be saying to yourself, is "i want to know god" or " i know god is in me.."
as a wise man once said,No. "Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try. "
so dont try to know god, dont ask to belive, just belive..
if you really are asking to belive in god from your heart and not your head then he has already found you and all that stands in your way is the mind and the constraints you place on yourself
the real question is how do i find myself..
as god is already inside you.. you just have to dive into the abyss you have constructed to prevent yourself seeing what you already know..
you are god.. god is you..

I'm agnostic, and I believe for me to know the existence of an absolute entity, I need to have the mind of one in the sense I know absolutely everything. I believe it's absurdity to believe any other way.

Religion is a personal journey.

Why on earth would you want other people to tell you what to believe in?

How to Believe in God


The definition of god is different for every single person in the known world. As similar as some beliefs are no person can vision the same exact thing. so to find what god, is a quest every individual must take for them self. This does not mean through Christianity necessarily, or any of the abrahamic faiths. you could find it on your own. but to believe in god is to believe in some higher power, and that you are not the only thing that influences your decisions.


Peace

what a great thread you started, well done(sarcasm there ). If your a atheist then how can anyone MAKE you believe?
As you believe that theres no god then what possible argument could make you believe? As Faith is believing without proof and as a atheist you need proof. you just don't fit.
I bet this was a attempt at getting S&F? well none from me

everyone has their own beliefs. the thought of putting your trust, and your own beliefs into someone else's hands is pretty ignorant. i could tell you my thoughts on certain subjects, but that would defeat the purpose. watch this clip from youtube and your true path of enlightenment may start to show.

the video link is corrupt or malformed so here is a direct link

pellian, see the mindset of certain Christians, you're damned because their deity wants you to be...even though they have no basis for saying that beyond ancient texts that have no support.

Once again, humanity has no free will, we're relegated to being puppets of the will of a being who commands us to believe in, love, and fear him while intentionally withholding the attribute that would be required for this.

If that is not amongst the worst forms of sadism, I have no idea what is.

I'm an atheist, too, and I lack faith in your intention to do anything but troll by making this thread.

I'm not God Madness, what do you want me to do about it? That's the reason Jesus spoke in parables:


“And when He was alone, they that were about Him with the twelve asked of Him the parable. And He said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God, but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables.

That seeing they may see, and not perceive: and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted and their sins should be forgiven them. And He said unto them, Know ye not this parable? And how then will you know all parables?”


~ Mark 4:10-13


and:


“And the disciples came, and said unto Him, Why do you speak unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto YOU to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but unto them it is NOT given.”


~ Matt 13:10-11




Do you own a home Madness? If not do you plan to someday?
