All you have to believe god exists is your faith, blind faith, do you know why they call it 'blind' faith? You've been brainwashed into believing
in a mythical figure probably from a young age (the church likes to get em' young...easier to brainwash) or if you started believing when you were
older it will have been after a traumatic event and you needed comforting, even if that comfort was artificial.
Just for the record, I would like to dispel your assumptions of Christianity (in my case anyways).
I was an ADULT
when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour. I was not "brainwashed" - as I CHOSE to believe and trust in HIM. I was not
attending any church or Christian seminar at the time. In fact I had only ever been to church once before - and while I was there I DENIED
Jesus Christ as my Saviour, to the face of the Pastor of the church.
Sometime later, I simply asked a gentleman whom I was working with a few questions about the Bible, that's it. I was under no traumatic delusion at
all. His answers made perfect sense to me - rationally, theoretically, practically and emotionally.
I am not following "in blind faith". I have been blessed with many physical and emotional "proofs" of the reality of Jesus Christ in my life. I
have experienced "spiritual" attacks (which many members on ATS have also experienced) and have overcome those situations in faith and in the name
of Jesus. I have been blessed with a phenomenon called speaking in "tongues". (which took me by surprise, believe me !) I have been blessed with
visions, dreams and prophetic words for people I know AND PEOPLE THAT I HAVE NEVER MET UNTIL A PARTICULAR MOMENT
. All real - all true - all
fact. Not blind faith at all. True, evident reality.
God ''sees all and knows all' does he? So he sees all the flith and molestation and lets it happen? Is that what you're saying? Absolutely
The Christian Bible teaches that AT THE MOMENT
, GOD does let it all happen. But there will come a time when HE will judge ALL of
mankind according to what he (mankind) has done. GOD is patient and loving and just, and is giving us all (that is every nation, tribe, race and
tongue) the opportunity to change our ways and repent from the "filth and molestation" that we ALL
If god exists then he's not your version of god, not the christian version, I'd find that impossible.
What we as humans find as impossible is primarily due to ignorance. It was impossible that the earth was round - it was impossible that man
could make it to the moon - it was impossible for things to travel faster than the speed of light. In the case of the Christian GOD - it is not only
ignorance that blinds our acceptance, but accountability.
Please allow me to explain............
Most people who deny the existence of the GOD of the Christian Bible, do not understand who the GOD of the Christian Bible is, mostly because if we
own up to the truth about GOD (and who HE is) then we must own up to the truth that we are accountable to that GOD because HE has created us, and
ultimately, we are HIS.
Have you noticed that it is much easier for the world to believe and accept every other religion, or god,or deity, or belief - OTHER THAN THE GOD
OF THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE
I will tell you why that is so...............
THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY
Other belief systems tell us that "we are gods/goddesses of our own accord, or we come back and have another chance, or we plainly cease to exist
once we die, or there is no heaven and hell at all, or there is other ways to heaven besides Jesus and that we don't need a saviour - as we can save
ourselves, or there is other gods besides the Most High,or you can 'pay off' your sins in purgatory,or god is everywhere, everything and in
everything" etc etc etc.
NONE of those systems have any accountability !!!!!! That is why they are people friendly and Christianity is "claimed" as not people friendly. But
here is the big issue my friend.........
The Christian Bible teaches that GOD wants EVERYBODY
(all nations,races,tribes,tongues and peoples) to be in heaven with HIM. HE wants every
person to be HIS friend - not HIS enemy. HE LOVES US ALL
HE took upon HIMself the punishment for all the wrongdoing that ALL of humankind has ever done. That is Love !
That is the GOD of the Christian Bible !
Every person who believes in god does so simply because they have been 'told' by other humans that he exists and if they don't believe they will go
to hell, that's not good enough for me.
Actually, if you seriously investigate the copious amount of evidence supporting the Christian Bible as the TRUE Word of GOD, and the evidence
to support the reality of Jesus - what HE said and what HE did - then my friend, that WOULD be good enough for you. That is what a vast majority of
Christians begin their faith on - solid, factual evidence.
