In today's society no one exactly has an understanding of God otherwise they would believe.. A believer's duty as a follower is supposed to testify of The Lord since he will not reveal himself,, yet.. He will,, but not yet

Actually, in today's society we are better educated, better equipped to evaluate information and make reasoned decisions. We are also more cynical and less likely to blindly accept what we are told and follow authority without question.

Once you start questioning religion it falls apart. It certainly isn't because less people understand god... quite the opposite, you frequently see examples on this very forum of Atheists knowing the bible better than Christians.

Whenever I hear that somebody has doubts about their faith, I recommend they read the bible and understand it. There is no faster way to make somebody an atheist.

People don't believe in god because there isn't any scientific proof that he exists.. So based on their theory of that, they only believe in things that can be proven to be there.. They don't believe in him because they can't see him, touch him, or hear him...
Now, people believe in god because they have faith. They know that god is real and they base their life on him. They believe that he is the reason for which we wake up everyday and are alive. People also believe in god because he has done miracles in their lives. It's based on themselves and what they believe to be true. It's their own independent thoughts. We can't so anything to make them believe or not believe. We all decide for ourselves.

Free will, or, God hasn't revealed Himself to them yet. My personal favorite, they justify the things they do. The further away from God the easier it is. The further away they are the Holy spirit isnt you telling you that's not good. Sleep around, steel, sleep with married people. Me me me. Do whatever feels good in the prusuite of happiness. Which just leaves a path of destruction and hurting people who love you. Hey, who cares...do drugs have kids with different men or women so your kids can grow up in a split home. Non respect for themselves much less others. See if they believed in God, they have to believe in hell. Somewhere deep inside they know. They choose to ignore. Wrap there lives in themself. Which is opposite of what God says.

This is quite funny. Might I remind you that Christian girls sleep with just as many men as athiest girls do? I know LOADS of athiests who are ALL (shocker for you) VIRGINS! They have had boyfriends, but the farthest tey have been is a kiss! A KISS! If you think you made religion sound like a walk in the park when it is full of hypocrocy, biases and is constantly contradictig itself, you are wrong! I believe in God and question why everyday! I'm a virgin, sex with people has never been something I want! My mother and father are not die hard religious and yet they have been faithful since the day they met and dated! That is cruel, heartless and just because I can I'm calling it "very unChristian" of you to make people without religion sound so crude and vile!!

Religion doesnt make you a good person, your morals do! Dont judge people by what book they read or dont read! And dont let a few rotten apples spoil the bunch! You are just as bad as any athiest and just as good as any Bible pushin Christian! "Down on your knees you just dont look so tall." Billy Talent said that one right.

Yes, this is the difference. Non-believers tend to pay attention to things like evidence and facts. Believers just believe anything that makes them feel good.

The truth is that Atheists are underrepresented in prisons. Christians have the highest rates of divorce, adultery, teen pregnancy.

Not only is it insulting to insinuate that people that have moved away from god are immoral and corrupted, it is contrary to all the evidence.

Galatians5:13-15 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: Love your neighbor as yourself. If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. James 4:16-17 as it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. Anyone who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sin.1 Corinthians 6:9-11. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adultulters nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of YOU WERE. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the spirit of our God. Everyone is a sinner and falls short of the glory of God. This is why I don't put my faith in anyone but Him. You are not going to hell cause of your sin, but because you are a sinner who refuses to come to Christ for forgiveness! If you meet people and they seem no different then the world, they don't have Christ. They have religion. Salvation and religion or religions are different. The closer we get to God the more separated we are from the world. Galations 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. jus as for you you were dead in your transgressions and change in with you used to live when you follow the ways of the world end on a ruler of the kingdom of off the air who is now at work in those who are disobedient all of us you lived among them at one time to find the cravings of our sinful nature and following inches I thought you like the rest we were by nature Augustine grass but because of the great love for us God who is rich in mercy

How did I know you were going to fight your battles with the Bible? Simply because that's how most people who don't comprehend a basic conversation do. They run to something for help and hide behind things they claim to understand :P I'm a Christian, and hey, sometimes I talk like an Atheist, but that's because I believe that the internet is an atheist community, because an inanimate object cannot belong to a faith. I used to go to church (until offensive things were said) and I used to always sleep with a cross over my door so that evil couldn't get in (the cross doesn't fit over the door in my new house). All I know is that when it comes down to arguing that Atheists are bad I feel obligated to defend them and do you know why? Because God Himself told us to love everyone; that He loves everyone. Just because they don't believe in Him, doesn't mean that they are wrong. It means that they are using on of the many WONDERFUL gifts given; following INTELLEGENCE (given to Adam by the Lord) and FREE WILL (a right that EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS TO THEMSELVES)! So yea. :P

You know, I use scripture instead of my opinion. Cause if its just opinions then I can make up what God I want. Rather I use the scripture to spread His word, not mine. I summed up the law of God with Galatians 5:13-15. Maybe you was so caught up in how you were going to respond, you missed GODS message and just repeated what He said. Romans 1:25 they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen. Romans 1:28 furthermore since you did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God he gave them over to be depraved mind to do what are not to be done they have to become filled with every kind of wickedness evil greed and get depravity. They are full of envy murder strife, deceit and malice. They are gossip slanders God haters I slit in Poulsbo damn that ways of doing evil additional better parents they are sensors faithless heartless ruthless although they know God's righteous decree that those who do not do such things deserve death the only continue to do these very things but also approve those who practice them.

I pick the scripture according to what's being said. And actually I believe and have read the whole Bible. And I'm reading it again. Going to church or reading Bible doesn't make you a Christian. Having a relationship with God makes me a Christian. See I have salvation not religion. Although I go to church on Sunday, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Luke 16:19- 32. See when you read and hear of the rich man, Jews back in the day considered if you had riches you had Gods favor. But God knew the rich mans heart and he didn't get to go to heaven. Even when he was in Hades he thought that Lazorous should serve him. But Abraham told him they could cross. Then the rich mans priorties change. Abraham told him that they have what they need to make a choice. Having someone rise from the dead wouldn't change his families mind. See this passage reminds me of you. You have heard the word and still reject it.

Give me one thing in that bible of yours which is relevant to me, which I can't get without Jesus or religion.

Now you are just being rediculous. That's what the Bible is, the Word of God. Salvation. You need a personal relationship with God, you need to ask Jesus for forgiveness. True repentance. Which is something God can see. But there is ways for Christians to tell. It says you will know the heart by the fruit it produces. You need to read the Bible so you know. Salvation is what Jesus Christ gives. Not religion.
Report as
Forgiveness for what? I haven't done anything wrong. Salvation from what, a punishment imposed on me by the very deity you think will save me? And punishment for what exactly? Because I like to sleep with women maybe? Noooo... the only sin that cannot be forgiven is failing to kiss your god's back-side.

So basically the deal is this, kiss ass or go to hell. And my reward for kissing ass? An eternity in heaven kissing more ass. (Check your bible, thats what's promised). Sounds like hell to me.

Look at what I wrote for the last question I answered about gays. How do you know she don't need Jesus. I don't know you personally. See, I almost got or did get a little upset for that lady. The respect didn't go out the window till she sweared at me. Then I went on her profile. Asked myself what would Jesus want me to do? So I prayed for her. I can't personally save anyone only Jesus Christ can. I'm not on any high horse. If you read my profile you would know that I'm far from perfect. God met me in a prison cell. See, my original statement on this question was from personal experience not from being on a high horse. Horrible things have been done to me and horrible things have I done. My life has changed so much since Jesus has come to dwell with me. Now I use my testimony to help others. I didn't bring God into it. God was in the question. I will pray for you also. For the both of you. God is with you and waiting for you. When you are ready. I hope I see you both in heaven.

Oh, I've went back to Greek and Hebrew version. If we could agree that anyone who sleeps with the same sex is a homosexual, the inturpitation is correct. Sorry, that it is in there in the original language. All though the word homosexual isn't. The interpitation is in a language we speak today. They also took out the thees and the thous, we just don't speak that way. Greek words paint pictures. So some is lost. Just not on this particular subject. Its good to be able to read both.

And you said that lady didn't need Jesus. 1 Corinthians 2:5 so that your faith will not rest on men's wisdom, but on Gods power. Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to disciples, " If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, YET FORFEITS HIS SOUL?2Corinthians 4:3 and even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to THOSE WHO ARE PERISHING. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. I'm ending it with those. I can't believe you jumped down my throat for praying for a prostitute in the UK. Its obvious this is failing on deaf ears. I'll pray for you too! Quietly, so you don't get upset telling me you don't need Jesus ethier. Love ya anyways! Glad I had oppertunity to share with you. Even know you disagree with Bible.

Matter of fact their is a Bible verse for that to. I don't care what you have done or what you are doing. God wants you and I would be happy to have you in the family. I just know if you continue whatever it is, you'll never be happy. You may say your happy, but you are dying on the inside. Look, I've been enjoying this conversation.

Simple when growing up, you often believe what your parents believe, but once old enough then you decide if to continue as your parents have or seek their own path for the truth. Some people turn to god when they are at their lowest point due to events that they are having trouble coping with. They figure they will try anything that may give them support & help them get through each day.

You're right, but then that becomes a mistake from the people. Because they turn to God when they're in need, when things are going bad. But then when things begin to go good and there's no problems, people seem to forget about God.. It's basically using God for what we want. Only remembering him when in trouble. It slowly becomes what is basically a game.. They begin playing with the fact that God is willing to help. It's quite difficult to explain.. Basically, when people turn to God when in need or trouble, they end up only using him for their benefit.

Allah says :

( 55 ) And nothing has prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them and from asking forgiveness of their Lord except that there [must] befall them the [accustomed] precedent of the former peoples or that the punishment should come [directly] before them.

( 56 ) And We send not the messengers except as bringers of good tidings and warners. And those who disbelieve dispute by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth and have taken My verses, and that of which they are warned, in ridicule.

( 57 ) And who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord but turns away from them and forgets what his hands have put forth? Indeed, We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And if you invite them to guidance - they will never be guided, then - ever.

( 58 ) And your Lord is the Forgiving, full of mercy. If He were to impose blame upon them for what they earned, He would have hastened for them the punishment. Rather, for them is an appointment from which they will never find an escape. Quran (18:55-58)

What we can see, though, is the qualities that God displays in his creation, our human bodies, and our galaxies, just to name a few. 2 Corinthians 4:18 tell us to "keep our eyes, not on the things seen, but on the things unseen."

By just admiring the waves of the ocean or the beautiful sunset, we can recognize that this all did not come by chance. Something so complex had to have a Creator behind it. Romans 1:20 tells us "For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable." This shows that our Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, is the Creator behind the beauty you see today. By meditating on this fact alone, there's no doubt that a God exists.

When people quote things out of the bible with reference numbers really makes it sound so official. So definite. Which is why it fools people so easily. The most successful lies ever believed. I wish there was a God. This world has so many sick and cruel things happen in it. There couldn't possibly be a God. It must be comforting to imagine that when your dead, you're not really dead, there's somewhere else to go after. It's hard to think about being dead and not here anymore. Which is why the bible stories are so easily buy able.

Have you ever a met someone who doesn't believe in God If you haven't, one day you probably will. And if you have, then you already know that there really are people who don't believe in God. That's hard to understand, isn't it There is so much evidence for God's existence like design in nature (which demands a Designer), Jesus resurrection, or biblical prophecy that we sometimes wonder how anyone could not believe in God. Who are these people? And why don't they believe in God...

An atheist firmly believes that God does not exist. An agnostic says it is impossible to know whether God exists. A skeptic doubts that God exists. An infidel doesn't believe in God, and doesn't want anyone else to believe in God either.

You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that - and shudder James 2.19

Everyone is entitled to believe what they want. Some individuals do not believe in God because they cannot physically see him. Others don't believe in him because of all the hypocrisy in religion. And there are some people who rather not believe in God to be able to do whatever they choose without having to render account to God. As said in the Bible in Psalms 10:4, "The wicked one according to his superciliousness makes no search; All his ideas are: 'There is no God.'"

Some have a spiritual awareness & search for their existence within that spirit realm. Others are, not so much blind, but I'd word it like..... they are spiritually unaware. :-)

To be spiritually blind is not to see Christ, and not to see Christ is not to see God (Colossians 1:15-16; 2 Corinthians 4:6). Spiritual blindness is a grievous condition experienced by those who do not believe in God, Jesus Christ, and His Word (Romans 2:8; 2 Thessalonians 2:12). Those who reject Christ are the lost (John 6:68-69). Being spiritually blind, they are perishing (2 Corinthians 4:3-4; Revelation 3:17). They choose not to accept the teachings of Christ and His authority in their lives (Matthew 28:18). They are blind to the manifestations of God as revealed throughout His Word and Jesus Christ (John 1:1; Acts 28:26-27). They are described as those who "do not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Corinthians 2:14).

Peter spoke of such people as "scoffers [who] will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires" (2 Peter 3:3; Proverbs 21:24; Jude 1:18). Those who reject Christ and His Word are spiritually blind and cannot understand the truth of the Scriptures. The truth sounds foolish to them (Isaiah 5:25; Isaiah 37:23). The Bible describes those denying God as fools (Psalm 14:1; Matthew 7:26). Because of their blindness and rejection of God and His Word, they are in a perilous, unsaved condition (John 12:48; Hebrews 2:2-4).
The spiritually blind are simply unable to understand His Word (Matthew 13:13; Deuteronomy 29:4).
The cause of spiritual blindness is made quite clear in the Scriptures: "In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God" (2 Corinthians 4:4).

The bible turns many away. And lack of evidence.
