Why do you believe in God ?

well,,, i love God but the thing that pops up in my mind is that if nobody has seen the god then how can we believe in God ?:D

Report as

I believe because creation itself says there is a God======================The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. God has made a home in the heavens for the sun. It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race. The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat. The instructions of the L ord are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the L ord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The commandments of the L ord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the L ord are clear, giving insight for living. Reverence for the L ord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the L ord are true; each one is fair. (Psalms 19:1-9 NLT)

Besides my faith and personal beliefs.

When you stop and just look at this world,then you look up and realize. We are just a pin hole in a vast galaxy,and for us to exist on this pin hole everything had to be perfect. There has to be a higher power.

Now personally i think God is in everything,you wanna see proof he exist. Just look in a mirror,take a deep breath and smile. You exist...

I didn't always believe. Then I decided to read the bible, to find something in particular. A weird thing happened, It made sense. I started to believe, pray to Him and talk to Him. Then He revealed Himself to me. Not by sight or sound but by feelings, knowledge and understanding. Too many expect God to jump in front and say HERE I AM, to prove Himself. We are to seek HIM, not vise versa. God bless ><>

Well, why not? Jesus performed all these miracles and theb they just stopped. If your god was truly that powerful, why CAN'T he send a truly unexplainable miracle our way? Why not shove the truth in our faces?

He DOES!! People choose to write them off as coincidences (which there are none) or what ever. Thousands witnessed Christ's miracles and many walked away thinking they were magicians tricks or they really didn't see what they just saw, mind playing tricks or talked themselves out of believing what they saw. God will and DOES reveal Himself to those who seek.

That's an interesting point of view. Maybe.

I read your answer. I also believe there are other gods, contrary to popular Christian beliefs. Just that there is one supreme creator and we should only worship He and His Son.

There is zero documentation of witnesses to the "miracles" of Jesus. Funny how "thousands" allegedly witnessed them but no one said a word about it for two generations.
You don't even have contemporary evidence Jesus existed.

Hey Skept, did you watch the Casey Anthony trial? 12 people listened and found no evidence that she killed her baby (how they explained away that duct tape I'll NEVER understand) but I think most people BELIEVE she did it. Sometimes things just make sense, sometimes they don't. Sometimes some people see things, sometimes they won't. I cannot touch the moon but I BELIEVE it's up there. I cannot see air but believe so many people who say I breath it. Whether you believe or not has no impact on my life. And I'm sure the fact I do believe it has no impact on yours. Seeing isn't always believing and believing doesnt always mean you saw........sometimes you just know. Try not to let it bother you.

I don't watch TV.

And you can see the moon. There are photographs, video, pieces of moon rock here on Earth. You can measure and weigh air.

Sorry, but no one "just knows"- without evidence you are just guessing.
Report as
Also- you are making grandiose claims- that miracles happen, that thousands of people witnessed Jesus. You should not make grand claims if you cannot back them up, and you should expect to be challenged on them.

A challenge to:Read the bible books of Mathew, Mark,Luke and John. I challenge those who say'no witnesses' to come back here and still say that.
Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened.
There is a KJV especially for 3-8 graders called NIrV( the 'r' stands for
Reader---- easy for school kids to understand what they are reading)
Report as
That challenge was to skeptikitten/ or anyone else who doubts!

I have read them. I used to be Christian. The Gospels were written decades after the supposed events by people who were never there.

The writers simply claimed there were witnesses. None of the alleged witnesses ever spoke a word in their lifetimes, never wrote about it, none of the historians and scholars in the area at the time ever mentioned a Jesus at all.

So I repeat- there are no witnesses. If you went to a court of law and claimed 500 witnesses saw a crime sixty years ago, but none of them ever said a word, you can't provide any of these witnesses, and you have none of their names- you'd be booted out.

I believe in my God and Goddess. I was bored of my old reading material, so I picked a random book from the New Age section (in truth, I wanted to learn about Tarot Cards, because my mother had a deck that she was obsessed with) and the book interested me. I researched the religion I had found (Wicca) and suddenly realized "Hey, this feels right. Everything I'm reading about is just...right." and bam, I believe.

It is a test of faith. You must have faith to believe in an unseen God. You can't see Him, but you can definitely feel His presence when your spiritual eyes are open. He is there and always there. He is real, forever real. You must have faith. Faith is believing in things unseen...

None of those things indicate magic. They all have perfectly natural causes.

And you are the ones claiming a magic "poof", not science.

you see the air? No, but you know its there because you are breathing.can you see gravity? No again but you know is there because you are not floating away into space. The sun, moon stars are perfectly placed, they don't crash into each other and are all working together to form our beautiful galaxy. Think about the complexity of your body and how it works,, science still has so much to learn.

Galaxies and other cosmological bodies DO crash into each other and they aren't "perfectly placed". The earth alone varies in its distance from the sun by 100,000 miles a year.

Just because you don't understand nature does not make the answer magic.

in the bible it talks about faith and faith is as simple as "believing without seeing". (santa claues one reference btw)

If you really want to know if there is a God, do this. Pray to God and tell Him that you would like to get to know Him. Ask Him to come into your life. God will begin to work in your life and will find different ways to reveal Himself to you. Begin in the book of John in the Bible and begin to read. I have no idea of what He will do in your life, but I guarantee you that He will not be silent! Expect changes and for many things to be revealed to you. Start going to church and watch your life change. You too will be a believer!

I don't. Why should I? I don't see him. I don't hear him. I can't feel him. If he's so all powerful and omnipresent, shouldn't his existence be indisputably obvious? And yet it isn't. There's absolutely no reason to believe in a magic sky god who is his own son.

There should be somebody to thank for all the goodness in our lives.

When I take Daizy out for lunch and we visit our favourite Italian restaurant, and sit before a plate of delicious pasta, I always remember to thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster for providing it. Blessed be his sauce.
