    It doesn't hurt anyone to believe in God, but then you see groups of people who shove bibles in your face and preach how their religion is the only true one, those kinds of people i find to be truly annoying.

    I know, it's just religious indoctrinated logic.
    But if people think they need religion to build their moral standards, so be it.

But it's kinda like telling a kid "hey santa clause is comin to town" and in their mind...its reality. When people are sick to the point will medical attention is needed...u have people who say "god will get u through it" but is it God?? Or is it the doctors and the meds?? In no way am I trying to insult anyone's religon...matter of fact my family are full of christians with very strongg faith in God... But recently... I have a hard time believing the hype... If He does exist then why do so many good people suffer EVERYDAY?? If he can work miracles...why do people still have to suffer.... Innocent people get brutally murdered everyday. Natural disasters take the lives of good souls..... Maybe I'm just looking at it selfishly because my life is **** right now and I'm being negative...but what r ur thoughts? Do u believe in him or do u think its all a fairy tale?

    Ps. I'd appreciate it if I got real answers...not something like " he doesn't. Exist...get over it". Also if u had any experience with the Lord himself....please share with me...thank you
    when going through personal problems i researched god and if anything he helped me get over it so now im a totally different person

    As horrible as life can be, it's up to us to do the best, even when others don't.
    Hardships and trials help us to learn, grow stronger, and come closer together. It's just that nowadays, people are growing more selfish, lazy, and reziliant for such things to happen.

    If someone doesn't want to beleive in miracles, that's fine. But either way, things come together because of what WE do. If people don't think the world is fair or just--then ACT. That's hoow alot of countries (including America) were created. Just make sure it's for the best.
    thank you and this is a test to see whether we are good enough to enter his kingdom

    Re: Do You Have Faith in God (if so...then why??)

    Yes I've been through various diseases(some of them still not cured and just have to man up) I've known the answer for a while (from God's point of view).

    Well If you studied the bible, you'd had an answer. For example before I studied the bible there were things that I thought were true but aren't for example your family who is full of Christians probably don't know either because they only follow what the pope/priest says (if they even listen). For example the bible doesn't teach about hell, they distorted the bible because Hades means the grave (dying) not Hell Fire and torment lol.

    People suffer in this world because this is not the world God had in mind. It's only a phase, for whatever reason it's only a phase. So everything that happens is random and bad things. Good people suffer because they got bad luck so do bad guys.

    If this world was governed by God, then death and diseases would not exist at all, neither would tears.

    There's a passage saying : "And every tear would be wiped out from their eyes".

    By saying that it means that when God rules the earth, there won't be a single drop of sadness. Of course not everyone can enter that kingdom, only a few. What would be the point of having bad individuals and start chaos again?

    "Many will say to me in that day : "Lord lord, did we not prophesy in your name, expel demons in your name and do many powerful works in your name" and Jesus said "Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness. I never knew you"".

    Which means that even a big majority of Christians will probably not make it.

    Another passage : "Broad and spacious is the road leading to destruction and many will walk through it. Narrow and cramped is the road leading to the kingdom and few will find it".

    Everything is in the bible, pick a good neutral translation too like the NIV.

    In resume, this is not the world God had in mind so anything that happens in it doesn't really matter. Yes we all suffer but it's all a phase, there will be a day when tears are no more but again not everyone will be in it which makes sense. Really bad and perverted people shouldn't be there in the first place, it would really screw things up again.

    I know you have many more questions but if you really want to find an answer from God's point of view, pick up the bible and not what the priests says.

    Trust me, it's all there.

    Edit: If you have more questions, send me a PM. I don't come to this page that often but the PM will go to my email. I'm not that blind as many atheists will think either. I hold a degree in theoretical physics and another one in electrical engineering. So I can give you pretty good answers from any point of view, I hope you recover from your diseases (I did recover from the most fatal one which started a few months ago but it will reduce my lifespan pretty drastically hence my name Itachi xD).

    Re: Do You Have Faith in God (if so...then why??)

    I don't believe in the concept of a god. People invented the concept of a creator because they couldn't understand that natural laws of the universe are capable of creating anything. The religious argument is you can't prove it's not there so ill believe it to make myself feel better. This is flawed though its impossible to prove a negative. The burden of proof falls on those who have nothing but faith to back up their claims based on fear of oblivion. If god existed would there be three major religions with the same god that fight like cats and dogs? Why would a loving god described by religious texts find homosexuals disgusting? Why do over 1,500 species of animals participate in homosexual activity if its abhorent to god? He wouldn't men who didn't want to be hit on by other men would though. Why does the bible in particular make no mention of dinosaurs or other planets? Why did people still believe in the celestial sphere long after Jesus the man who was said to be god came? Religion is a means of making money and enforcing order. Look up the definition of cult then myth then the definition of religion they are all strikingly similar. You can't prove Jesus is god anymore than you can prove Charles Manson is and followers of either cult are likely to claim their figure is. If there was a god why did the people of Asia only hear about him from other people? They've always had a large sum of the population, did they not deserve a visit from god? Or did every area on the planet make up stories to explain things we couldn't understand to control and build the foundation of a society. Wait a minute this guy eebster saw birds flying in a flock and that's why he believes in god? Add that to my list of why I don't. Religious people can be tricked into believing anything that makes them feel good. I suspect that's why radical young Islamic men are willing to blow themselves up for 72 virgins in heaven.

    Say God does not exist and I live my whole life by Christian beliefs. I donate to charity, help old people, don't lie, don't drink too much. I generally live a healthy, pleasant life.

    What do I lose? I lose some fun ( by some's standards ). I don't get drunk, high and probably don't get into a 3some.

    Say God exists and I don't believe in him. I live my life like a king and do what the hell I want without worrying. I probably spend the last days of my life crying and being afraid of death, whereas if I was a Christian I'd die at peace, knowing I would be in God's kingdom soon ( whether that is true or not, you would believe it so you would die at peace ).

    See my point?

    I think atheism is a cool thing to do nowadays, but when you know you'll die you won't be as cool as you are when you say '' i don't believe in God. I don't fear death. ''

    the thing is that more and more time passes scientist are getting more open minded about spirituality. and want to explain some of these phenomenons .... i believe that there is a higher power and to reach it we need to be spiritual beings but that doesn't mean that science can't explain it...there's a whole realm of physics that we know nothing off. The more research the more we will know...in due time...

    what i don't believe is that there's a god that gets angry when we don't worship him every seventh day ....that to me sounds like a petty, petty god and some made up mongo jongo like all religions of the world.....man made religion, religion did not make us....i believe in spirituality but not in religion.

    adam and eve ....god said don't eat the fruit or you will die. the serpent comes and says eat the fruit you will not die...and did she??? and did he??? ...no so who lied.... god or the serpent (Christianity is nothing but an occult religion being masked.)

    Re: Do You Have Faith in God (if so...then why??)

    I have only read a few posts here. Anyway.

    I Myself, believe in no God, no supreme-being. Although I do have an edge for science. The simply fact for me is, I don't care. If this so called "God" wishes to punish me for doing things these rules supposedly say I'm not allowed to do. Then so be it. But knowing I am being punished for such a reason gives me no interest in such a being. As I would say God is the True Devil.
    The fact is, some people hide behind faith, just to hide themselves from the truth.
