I would believe in the bible too if I did not know better. You have to earn the wisdom it takes to not believe the bible is true. We were not created, we evolved to this race. There is no god, he is an illusion as are the obstacles "in your life to mess you up." The hardships of life are exactly what all animals are subject to: emergent obstacles. They are not divine obstacles they are just around because you can't avoid them. Like if you watch a baby in a play pin. Some babies can't even get up let alone climb out of the play pin or over a big bear. Things are just around and that includes chemicals in your brain that make you feel a certain way.
Why do we believe in the bible? Me personally, I believe because most of it deals with real life situations, and it is common sense to me. Why were we created as us? Because in Genesis it says that God created man in his own image. He has arms, legs, a head. He created us with a mind that we could think for ourselves. A soul that is our emotions and conscience to know right from wrong.Obstacles sometimes are used as lessons sometimes they are used so that we will depend upon him to help us.If there was never any problems in life we would never need God to help us.His desire for his creation(us) is to be in a relationship with him.
Because God had it written as a guide to life and Life for us. - To love and be loved by God. - Satan throws obstacles in out way most of the time and we iften thow up our our obstacles as well. Only on occasions when it serves a true purpose might God put obstacles in our way as a teaching tool usually NOT to mess us up.
I'll skip Q1 since answers will vary for everyone with no logical consensus. We were created as God's image in order to keep and cultivate the Earth. We are our brothers' keepers. God puts obstacles in our path to overcome, not to mess us up. Who wants a straight path on flat ground with no scenery? The obstacles define the journey.
We believe because faith in the word and God is an anchor for our lives. We have something to look forward to, and we can make sense of our lives. The obstacles put in our way was a work of sin and not God. We all have free will and we can all choose to lead the life of God. It is ultimatly your choice
Trials and tribulations come with both a purpose and a reward. "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him" (James 1:2-4,12).
#1) We believe in the bible because it is the inspired word of God.=====All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV)===========#2) Why were we created to serve God with a willing heart==============Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 KJV)=========#3) Does God put obstacles in our lives to mess us up? No ====================================Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. (James 1:13-15 KJV))). ========This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5 KJV)===========God is holy and can't look up on sin===================================Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: (Habakkuk 1:13 KJV)
Perhaps the biggest reason that so many theories within the overall theory of evolution collapse is because they contain terrible logic requiring great leaps in faith to believe. Here is one example of a “debunked” theory: “Many evolutionists have tried to argue that humans are 99% similar chemically to apes and blood precipitation tests do indicate that the chimpanzee is people’s closest relative. Yet regarding this we must observe the following: ‘Milk chemistry indicates that the donkey is man’s closest relative.’ ‘Cholesterol level tests indicate that the garter snake is man’s closest relative.’ ‘Tear enzyme chemistry indicates that the chicken is man’s closest relative.’ ‘On the basis of another type of blood chemistry test, the butter bean is man’s closest relative’” ...lol heres evolutionists for you..funny isn't it? this is why...partly..
God divine is laid out for us, and his permissive well allow us to learn how to cope n this world until he comes for us. The bible is Gods word that direct us on the path that lies before us, n his own image or likness
IT IS WRITTEN: 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 1 Thessalonians 2:13 And for this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received from us the word of God's message, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also preforms its work in you who believe. This is why we believe the Holy Bible to be the infallible word of God. This is why we are who we are. Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: As far as God placing obstacles in our path; I am happy to say that is not God's doing. God gave us freewill, we have the ability to decide what we do and when, with this capability we also have consequences to suffer if a bad choice is made; consequently we place the obstacles in our own path by our choices
