Because I have felt His hand in my life, and He has and does answer my prayers, and because of some personal experiences I have had. One time I was just sad and needed someone to talk to so I prayed and shared my hurt and frustration and I just felt this warmth, peace, and comfort, like I was being held. Just felt warm from head to toe, like you do when someone says something nice, or gives you a hug that was needed. I didn't feel so alone. I have had some other experiences too, and most of them are answers to prayers. I know He lives because He answers my prayers and gives me the strength to do things I could never ever do on my own. When I am out and nature too or with sweet animals, I just think there just has to be a divine creater, you can just feel it. The way the sun shines on the horizon during sunsets, just all the beauty around us. You know what I mean?
I believe in God/Jesus as he is the creator and giver of life. He gives me guidance and the patience as well as hope for a better future. I try my best to live according to his teachings in the bible as it is a great reference point when going through struggles in life.
I beleve in him because he gives me strength, happiness, hope, and faith! It sends a feeling through my body that makes me feel indescribable! You should really try having him in your life If you don't know!
They believe because, they are convinced that, their god of the endless cosmos told savages to slaughter defenseless, defeated people, "to save alive nothing that breatheth." (Deut. 28, verse 16). They believe because, they find it comforting that, god of their endless universe had stopped the sun (That is to say, stopped the turning of the Earth), there by increased the length of the day, so one bunch of savages could slaughter another bunch of savages.
I do not recall a time when I did not believe. I only know that some believe and then stop believing. It would appear that belief is a binary code, my N-gate being set to On. however, regarding Jesus, this decision was made later when I have time to reflect and supportive and informed friends in college. Eventually, I was introduced to the Messiah, and I felt like I had completed a journey of a thousand miles.
