I think your seeing following God as a set of rules, bad idea. Instead it's power he gives you over sin. Turn back to Him because death comes like a theif in the night. What if you die we're will you? You know. God will help you be more committed later. But trust Him now. Do you want me to lead you in a prayer?

NewBloodAngel: If you desire Him, and continue to call on Him and your heart is sincere, search out His Promises and believe on them and continue to do so and you will see that at some point, it will become settled in your heart......you have been restored! And if you are trying and you miss it in some small way, Quickly go to God in prayer and repent and then, again, find His Promise such as how He never remembers your sin again and He places them in sea of forgetfullness. They are never to be remembered by Him again as far as holding them against you.So, when you feel condemned, it is a lie. God, you can trust. When you continue to do this, and not give in to feelings or just emotion and you go to church so you can fellowhip and be fed spiritually in the House of God, I fully believe that you will see, that this problem is a thing of the past! Ok, ask yourself, Do I really want a restored relationship with Jesus and to know that I am in right standing with God? If your answer is Yes, then here is something that you can reflect on: God gives us the desire of our heart. (not every whim, no. But He wants us restored to Him, it is His Desire). And here are a couple of scriptures assuring us about forgiveness when our hearts are sincere. Isaiah 55:7 (speaks of restoration to God and forgiveness) And when you may still feel condemned although you have been repented and are doing your best to obey Him, you can assure yourself with this scripture (and others), Psalms 32:5. Also First John 1:9. And when your "feelings or emotions don't catch up to the Truth that you are forgiven and blessed, read Psalms 32:1. These are just some suggestions, you may find others or more that you choose. God bless and Keep You, For He Is Able!

Jesus forgives, its a sacrament called Reconciliation. When God forgives you.
And God loves you no matter what, because he created you.
If you don't believe in Jesus, you aren't christian, same if you don't love him.

And God loves everyone.
Now the question is, why don't people love/believe in god?

Perhaps.
BUT that does NOT mean you have to give up.

Being so happy, with no tears or sadness. :]

Go to a church, ask if they are doing any times for reconciliation, and tell the priest your sins.
Its amazing how you feel afterwards.
Also, recieve Eucharist, and pray to god, like you never have. <3

NewBloodAngel: You have asked Jesus in your heart at some time, and because of that He came (by His Spirit) to dwell inside you. He NEVER leaves you, nor forsakes you, He loves you. You may not feel the "tugs" for awhile, but His Spirit has not left you. Speak to Him about this in prayer if you haven't already and tell Him that you want those "tugs" back if you do. But, do so in faith, believing He wants you and don't tell yourself you will always fail. If you want Him, trust Him to help you. God is on your side in your salvation walk. "If God be for you, who can be against you?", the Bible says. God Bless You, NewBlood.

Nope. All wrong. He's given up on us. He's sitting back watching as it all goes to hell. The world we created is not what he envisioned. Aids, natural disaster and the like are all attempts of his to wipe us out. We are not what was intended.

That was for His greater purpose of saving His beloved creation: people. Jesus now sits at the right hand of God in heaven, so it was only temporary. God is love, but the Bible says it "rains on the just and unjust." He doesn't promise your life will be perfect, but he's in control.

God has never forsaken His Son. But, aside from that even.....Jesus was allowed to choose whether or not to sin the same as we are. And He also could have chosen to not go to the cross. He did it by choice. Now, back to the forsaken topic, God never forsook His Son. His Son Chose! If He had chosen to not go to the Cross,

Jesus could have called 10,000 angels to rescue Him from the cross and He Chose Not To. Instead He became the Sinless Sacrifice For OUR sins that we might come to Him with a repentant heart and be declared Sinless by An Almighty God!

Mag, if Jesus could have called the angels to rescue him, then why couldn't he forgive his people without having the need of blood? God will forgive me the same way he forgave Abraham and the prophets.

God had to turn His back on Jesus when He was on the cross so that He never will have to turn His back on me when I sin,His Son Jesus took Gods just anger on himself dying so I don't have to die an eternal death(going to hell) and when I excepeted His sacrifice on the cross He gave me enternal life,He had to turn His back on His Son,so He would never have to turn it on us!!! and He promises all Christians "I will never leave you or forsake you."

God doesn't give up on his people. God indeed gives up on other peoples. This can be seen best in Exodus with God giving up on Pharaoh and Egypt, but it can also be seen in Paul's letter to the Romans where God gave up on certain Gentiles who wanted to go their own way. But God never gives up on his own people, even in the case of utter apostasy. When the newfound Hebrew people built an idol to represent YHWH's magnificence in Exodus 32, God responded in anger threatening to destroy them due to their utter apostasy. Moses reminded God of his promises, and God being the One True God stayed True to those promises and revealed himself as a most merciful and loving God in Exodus 34:6. He proved this by pursuing his people continually despite their ongoing obstinacy, and pursued them even beyond death and unto resurrection and eternal life. That is a god who doesn't give up on his people!

Because it is His Ability working through the Child of God. He is Able To Save to the Uttermost ans faithful to perform His Work unto the very end.He is the Potter and we are the Clay, we need to yield ourselves to Him fully, He can do all things.He will never allow us to utterly fall. Again, it's His Ability and not ours. As we draw nigh to Him after He has first drawn us by His Holy Spirit, He is faithful to come and live in us and work through us by His Holy Spirit. He will teach, guide and direct us in our lives. He is without limit, restriction or resource. He is All Wisdom, All Ability and All Knowing. His ways are unsearchable, and yet, He brings revelation of Himself according to His Will and our desire. And because it is His Will that all should know Him, we can be sure that He will come to us and see us through. It isn't at all dependent on us except to first,desire Him and secondly, choose Him and thirdly trust Him and lastly, obey Him. And, because HE IS ABLE, He does not give up on us, for He is faithful to do His part in us, through us and concerning us and His Promises.

Never say never but it takes A LOT for Him to finally turn His back. Even after Adam and Eve screwed up the world He stuck by them and lived them and took care of them. On the otherhand after hundreds of years of constant disobedience God finally gave up on Israel and the Jews and cursed them until the end of time. They deny Christ and are destined to follow their rigid sets of rules and regs pointlessly until its time for Christ to return when their eyes will open to the Truth and their hearts believe once again.
If He knows you are or will be He will not 'give up' on you but if he already knows you are going to choose against Him...
If you continue to make poor choices in your life He will allow you to do so and suffer the consequences so it may seem like Hes given up on occasion but Hes really just waiting fir YOU to come back to HIM.

God doesn't give up on us until we give up on Him. Only when we repeatedly turn our backs on Him and stubbornly refuse His offer of forgiveness will He finally let us go. The Bible warns, "A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed-without remedy" (Proverbs 29:1). You see, we are separated from God because of our sins, and our greatest need is to be forgiven and cleansed of them. This is why Jesus Christ came into the world. All your sins were placed on Him, and He died for you. Now God offers you salvation as a free gift-a gift Christ paid for with His blood. Repent of your sins and ask Christ to come into your life today.

NewBlood, sweetheart, I feel as if you've had a relationship with God in the past & just have maybe gotten away from it for awhile. Of course I don't know for sure. But please know this, even after they've come to know God, the most kind, sweetest, good-hearted, God-loving people you know "sin" - everyday. (Please take note I did not say, "SINNED".) We're human. There was only one solitary man that walked this earth that was perfect and that was Jesus. That's why God gave us so much scripture about his mercy and grace. So He even tells us how to start out when we don't know what to do -- at all. Hebrews 4:16 says, "Let us approach the throne with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Honey, He WANTS us to need Him. He WANTS us to turn to Him (and especially "back" to Him if we've strayed away.) You're His child. At one point in my life, I felt almost like you did, then I finally did what Heb. 4:16 said & I just went to Him with confidence that He'd be there full of mercy and grace & accept me again - fell on my knees and cried for, what seemed to be hours - just talked & told Him everything I was feeling & asked for forgiveness.

Oh, and the mercy and grace that He showed me was beyond anything I could have imagined.

Honey, He loves you more than you've ever been loved by anybody with a love like we've never known before. All you have to do is accept it.

Honey, just as with you regarding me -- I also don't know what you've gone through or are going through. But in my deepest, darkest moments when I felt this emptiness inside, because I had memorized that scripture above, it kept coming into my mind every now and then. Maybe you could focus on that. He can give you a peace that passes all understanding. You will be in my prayers day & night. (And that's a lot because I talk to Him like He's sitting on the couch!) Please hang in there, sweetheart. He's also ALL about mercy. Turn His back on you? Go running to Him and see if He doesn't grab just grab you up. God Bless.

I think if there is a god that it is evident that god does give up on some ppl. And why not? If all those who would convert a person are gone mad from the rantings of a living Antichrist would it not behoove god to refrain from subjecting his beloved followers to this heinous madness spat by a forked tongue? If all channels of reaching a person have been systematically rewired to interpret the bible as wrong and the word of god just a function to be manipulated like a derivative for personal gain would it still behoove a god to keep on truckin with this one? If every waking breath of an individual was taken in order to consciously: spite god and lead his followers astray, to dilute the words of the bible, and spread blasphemy like it were a catchy pop song all the while choosing to believe that god does not even exist but that for entertainment purposes only? It does behoove a god to give up on this person when they die at least that is true but depending on which god you are talking about he's prolly given up much sooner.
