This has been a very interesting thread.Was very naive and just thought atheism was the absence of God.Was not expecting what I found.If I do not believe something, don't spend all my time and effort despising it so.Makes me affirm my faith all the more.

If you really have a crisis in faith and your not just jerkin g everyone around on here like many do, check out the material at
and see if that answers any of your questions.
Let me get this straight, you've just read a thread where nobody has been able to offer any evidence of a god yet the atheist side has offered a multitude of evidence against there being a god, a clear win for atheism and yet this reaffirms your belief in a god.
I'm sorry but this brings a phrase from two and a half men to mind which I can parody. "Faith isn't blind, it's retarded".
You haven't offered any evidence, you've merely danced around the lack of evidence with phrases like gravity is evidence, sorry but it isn't.
Give us proper meaningful evidence not what you class as evidence which can be explained by science.

The answers I have received from the "church" have not been willing to deal with my questions. I have been a pastor in the past but this is my lament. I have always sensed there is a greater spirit. One which I have known and accepted as the Lord Jesus Christ in the past. But I am having a crisis of faith! This is my conversation with God.
I join your saints through the ages crying out for mercy and justice. However, it is getting harder for me to imagine a merciful god who would command the utter destruction of men, women and children by the sword as spoken in the Old Testament. Can your justice really be doled out in excruciating fear and pain? Defenseless children destroyed because of their parent’s sin? How can that be justice?
I just don’t get it!
