Why don't you believe in God?

Of course I do.
You see Christianity is a faith-based religion. It is based on faith in God and in His Son, Jesus Christ. God has provided us with His Word, the Holy Bible, as a testimony of His faithfulness to His people all throughout history. In its bare essentials, Christianity is faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ claimed to be the promised Messiah and the Son of God. His life was one of perfect righteousness according to the revealed law of God and His death was an atoning sacrifice for the sins of His people.
By placing our faith and trust in Christ alone for our salvation, God takes our sin and places it on the cross of Christ and awards us, by grace, with the perfect righteousness of Christ. That, in a nutshell, is the Christian message. As Christians, we are called to believe this message and live in light of it.

"You see Christianity is a faith-based religion"
YES! And I don't place my faith blindly in some guy who lived 2000 years ago who claimed he was the son of God. Well, guess what? I claim to be the son of God! Believe me! I wrote a book, look! WOOOO!
Do you believe me? No. Because you don't know me AT ALL. Well I don't know Jesus AT ALL, because he's dead. I could go on.

Believe should read: belief

Out there. You don't know God because you reject Him and that is your choice. Even though the fact is that He knows you and loves you just the same. Peace

your faith is based on a fictional book that was edited so many times? not only that but it was voted on by man whether certain books were considered holy or not.

What? I can watch the George Carlin video myself...
(This is long. Please read all of it)Anyway, I watched some of Ravi Zacharias' videos and they're too short to really comment on, but he talks about the difference between a question and a doubt. Well mostly a question. Anyway, I am not a Christian for many reasons, but I am an atheist for less. I think that Christianity is full of many contradictions in its scripture like this(which I found on a website http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html)

PSA 145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
JER 13:14 And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.
So...? The Bible contradicts itself.
Anyway I think Christianity has problems. However If you are one of those Christians that says "Just read the Bible metaphorically and/or read it for the messages it gives" well I can say that the Bible does teach some pretty good morals, like "love your father" but it also calls upon all Christians to stone rape victims that didn't cry out loud enough(What?!) and adulterous women.
"If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city." Deuteronomy 22:23-24
So yeah. That's enough about Christianity. Maybe if there was a religion that said "Something created the universe and created rules to guide it, then never did anything again" I MIGHT believe it, but pretty much all religions have very specific rules that are contradictory and too much of the doctrine is BS. Sorry if that was confusing to read, but I hope I got my point across.

I'm going to do this free style. In Jeremiah the Jews stopped serving God. He had to judge their sin . But latter and even before he constantly warned them and read this Jeremiah 29:11. Any scripture contradictions you fell you find ask about it. Bit you will always have questions. Jesus would of returned by the time we get done
Report as
Uhh... Yeah... I'm confused by what you're saying... Just watch the George Carlin video.
Report as
The New Testament fulfills the old so what ever the old says Christ came and changed/fulfilled it. I also thought there as a lot of contradictions until I turned my life to Jesus and then read the whole Bible. That is when it all made sense. The funny part is that I can read the same verse at different times and it means something different each time. That is why I feel Gods word speaks to us. But you must have an open heart and a love for Jesus to understand.

Which god?

The one and only
Report as
I don't believe in the one and only god because I worship the One True God. Any god who claims to be the only god denies the unique claims of YHWH to be a deity superior to it and the only god worthy of worship.
Report as
LORD means the existing one
Report as
Zeus!!
Report as
Young, I believe in and worship YHWH: the LORD in most English Bibles, as you say.
Report as
Nwargy: I don't believe in Zeus because he is not the supreme god. I don't follow rebels regardless of how long they reign. His only interest in humans is their ability to appease him, particularly his sexual appetite. I will only believe a god who promises to be good and who consistently is true to that promise.

Was the holocaust bad?
Report as
Well you most likely say it was terrible. That means you believe in evil, so you must also believe in good. That says you believe in a moral law. So their must be a moral law Giver. And the most famous non believers became "Christians"
Report as
Too bad the Olympics doesn't have competition for "metal gymnastics", because you'd get the gold!

How can you possibly say morality needs a deity? We create moral systems based on our values as a whole. Don't what your stuff stolen? Neither do I. Let's find other people who feel the same, stay with them, and agree to punish anyone who steals.

Now in your view: is something wrong because your god says it is, or is your god simply the conveyer of what is truly right/wrong? i.e. Can your god just say rape is suddenly good?
Report as
Natural theology results in a moral code. Atheists subscribe to a moral code which is remarkably similar to the Decalogue.
You do not need a God to have a moral code. It's difficult to live up to the moral code you set for yourself in either case. What you need is a means to get clean once you mess up. Atheists can deny god, but they can't deny their conscience.
Report as
Sticking to ancient moral codes leaves you in that time period. Thankful, we don't have slaves, stone unruly children, or persecute others for thought crime (e.g. lust). We're still recovering from persection of homosexuals.

It also completely stops up from morally approaching new items not around back then. What if we invent an AI equal to that of humans? Is it a person? What rights do we afford it? You won't find that in your any holy book. Not understanding where morality actual comes from defeats the entire purpose of it.

Starving babies, unexplainable bibical contradictions, overwhelming evidence to the contrary, sheep-like followers, the idea that being a good, loving person won't get you into "heaven" but professing your acceptance of the lord jesus christ as your saviour even one second before your last dying breath will get you into heaven even if you raped babies for fifty years. For these reasons and so many more I can say without reservation that there is absolutely no "God".

The fact that you believe in evil shows theirs a God. And dont say theirs no evidence, you sound like a fool
Report as
Are you saying that to believe that evil exists that I have to believe in god? You are , ofcourse, entitled to your opinion. If you feel as if I sound like a fool for stating my beliefs then so be it. You asked a question and I answered it. I have yet to see or hear any actual viable proof of god's existence.

I believe in many gods and goddesses. I don't believe in your god because I disagree with the religion. Anyway, I like the Egyptian gods better than some boring old god who doesn't do anything and is basically the biggest, most boring person in existence if he exists. At least my gods and goddesses are more intresting.

Any god who has such strict rules is boring. The Kemetic gods are far less strict. They also aren't so self-centered. If you can send someone to burn for eternity just because they didn't worship you (made even worse by you guys saying he's your father, no good parent would do that). No Egyptian god would do that.
Report as
And conversions don't matter to me. I don't need others to be secure on my belief. My religion is my religion, I couldn't care less how few still follow the same religion.
