This life is nothing more than a test to decide whether or not we are individually ready to ascend to the next level of enlightenment.
For all of you out there that have chosen to ignore God and have chosen a path of self-indulgence...I warn you, there is a God and He is watching you. I say this because there have been a few very clear moments in my life that gave me undeniable proof that something or someone was listening and responding to me.

Okay, listen. I believe in God too. I really do.
That said, I don't think you're helping at all to make people believe in God. Preaching about God won't help. You said you have had clear and distinct moments that have 'proven' to you that God exists. I have too. But some people haven't. Without that experience, your words are meaningless to people (I've been there) and it makes them think you are stuck up and a loser.
If you really believe in God, just follow Jesus and be loving to everyone. Feed the hungry and thirsty, give clothing to those with none, visit those in prison. Stop harping about God "watching" people, and get off your butt and do what God ordered you to. God and Jesus never said "Post a thread to ATS and force people to convert". God said to love people and to show them charity and kindness. Your preaching does none of that and makes people more irritated with Christians. That's my advice to you on this issue of trying to get people to believe in God - they'll believe if you demonstrate that the way of God is the best way, not if you continue to act like a self-righteous do gooder who knows all the answers that all the athiests don't. You don't know all the answers. I don't know all the answers. If you truly believe in God, you realize that God knows all the answers, and doesn't really want you to pretend that you do. The best thing to do is to simply live a good life, and let GOD do the judging in the end... (another commandment of Jesus', btw!)edit on 11/22/2011 by spacekc929 because: (no reason given)
