Christian, I'm a proud follower of God. I won't force anyone to believe what I believe but I have talked to many people about my faith and got through to many. I don't get offended when people tell me there is no God because I know he's there and I know he loves all of us. He's saved me more times than I can count I've been blessed and I'll continue to glorify him until the day he calls me home.

Im an atheist i defend it by going off on people who cant accept the fact that i dont believe in any thing. or i ignore them i can look at other religions and accept them and their followers but come at me with hostile intent and ill do the same to you
I don't believe in a higher power. I believe in myself. And I generally try not to argue with people about religion because we can all believe what we want to believe. It's when one person thinks that their way of thinking (religion) is the only way. That's when I get annoyed and comment back.
I'm an agnostic atheist. I don't believe in god but I realize that I have no proof that god does not exist. So I don't claim to know. I do however claim to know that evolution exists and that religious texts contradict science and history.
I'm Muslim. I don't try to defend my religion, or make others see my point of view- I just believe in Islamic teachings; it makes sense to me. At first, I didn't understand some Islamic views (what exactly they meant, the reasoning behind them) but once I studied deeper, I understood them. I follow Islam because it goes along with my morals, and I think it's just a nice way to live. I like to believe in my religion because it gives me something to follow even when my life feels like it sucks and I don't know what to do.
Thats all you can do is to be open to what may be truth . Ask god to prove he is real to you and see what happens as long as you are open to the possibility you will find it . Jesus said seek and you will find knock and it will be opened for you for everyone who seeks will find. Don't be deceived by some interpretation offered the bible is not for interpretation . It interprets you . If you do decide to read it ask jesus to revile what he wants you to know.
Don't know if my belief has a name but it's basically like God is like a blacksmith and the universe is his workshop. The bible tells about Him and what he does, but the science books tell about man's study of His methods such as when God says Let there be light, His cosmic egg exploded and there was the universe. I could go on about how He created everything else in the universe, but that would take a long time. So here I just wrote about the very basic of my belief.
I believe in God and his son Jesus Christ. I defend it with God's word and the truth within it. I understand when some people don't believe in God, because he created those people so they wouldn't understand. But if uses me to convert somebody I will do all I can to answer questions and misunderstandings.

The truth is that there is no proof for the existence of God. Sure, there is evidence, but no conclusive proof. One answer to this is Atheism, the belief that there is no God. But one argument against "There is no God" is that in order for you to *know* that he does not exist would mean that you have searched everywhere--at the same time--and concluded that he is nowhere to be found. The problem with this is that if you searched everywhere at the same time, that would make you omniscient, which is a property that belongs to God alone. Therefore, to say that there is no God is to both deny and confirm your deity at the same time!
Therefore, I am not an Atheist: I am an apathetic Agnostic, and as such I believe that no amount of debate can prove or disprove the existence of God, and if he does exist, he does not seem to be interested in humans. Wait for my book with more about this! :D
I don't have a religion but I am an agnostic atheist, still an atheist, though. I admit that we cannot prove if any god exists and nor can we disprove any god. However, I simply do not have the belief that a god exists.
There are miracles everywhere. If you had asked me at twenty nine if there was a god my answer would be very different than my answer today. When I was a child my father showed me the seasons. Look at a seed and plant it and watch it grow. It is a miracle that no one can explain our bodies themselves are miracles too. How we eat breath and can run and walk. Close your eyes and open them. You experience the miracle of site. Look how a fish is born in water where it can swim and not in a desert where the camel thrives. This didn't happen by accident. A panda bear needs bamboo to eat not corn from Kansas where pigs And cows live. I've seen miracles just happen. Faith can move a mountain. Keep searching and you'll find the truth.

i'm an eclectic pagan. i learn as much as i can and i trust my intuition to tell me what is right for me spiritually. I believe in multiple gods and goddesses and also magic (magic being a combination of intent, will power, and energy.) I believe in reincarnation and i do NOT believe in hell or the devil. The only true defense i can give is that i have seen some of the gods whom i pray to (although not in their godly form). I admit that the spiritual path that is right for me might not be right for the next person, and i have a"Live and let live" mentality when it comes to other religions.
* I also believe that we all have the lord and lady (mother earth and her consort) inside us and that we all have power that we just haven't tapped into. We are all special and blessed and loved.
I'm a 100% fully devoted Christian. I wouldn't force my belief on anyone. I defend my God because the truth is in the Bible. You could either go to Heaven or Hell. I don't believe your trapped somewhere where theres just fog everywhere and nothing or a lonely place. I mean its your choice to believe in what you believe. Its faith. scientist aren't always right. but they have faith to be right. if they don't believe in god then how can they have Faith?
Jesus Christ established a church before he went back to heaven,
let us read,
Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
He said, upon this rock I will build my church
now what is this church?
let us read,
2 Corinthians 1:2 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
1 Corinthians 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
see? CHURCH OF GOD is the official name of the church established by God.
in this church Christ is the head and christians are the body,
let us read,
Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
I believe that there is something greater then ourselves. Physicists are pointing to evidence that the universe is an intelligent being. I certainly do not believe in the God of the bible. I can't believe God is genocidal, or that he will throw his creations into a burning pit for all eternity. I can't believe Jesus had to ask, "Why have you have forsaken me." He should have known the answer to that. I can't believe the Old Testament states, "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth," and "smite thy enemy," yet the New Testament states, " the meek shall inherit the earth," and "turn the other cheek." Too many inconsistencies for my blood. So I'm making up my own religion, where God is given his proper status. He is flawless, and he is the universe. I will pray to him, so that I am given guidance, such that I will be my brothers keeper and he will be mine. I will ask for blessings and they will be bestowed, except money for if I am given money, my thoughts will no longer be on God, but on money. Greed is punished by God by bad situations falling on the greedy. Slavers suffer a horrible fate, as will drug traffickers, who enslave people on drugs, and as kidnapped or forced hostages, as witnessed on the Mexican cartels. And so on...

That's great you are open minded. There is a realm besides the scientific, otherwise God wouldn't have been able to create everything out of nothing. By the word of his mouth he ordered everything to be created one thing at a time in six days. See Genesis 1-2. God is in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Have a good day. I suggest you read the book of John. God is a healer, and he will deliver from anything. Jesus has compassion. He died for all our sins so that we could escape hell and live with him forever.
Answer this question...god is very real... if scientists made all of this then who made the scientists? God has to be real... theres no better explanation? the big bang theory? a bunch of nothing game together with dirt and bam the world came? nooo.... i personally would rather believe in god and die and find out hes not real than to not believe in him and die and find out he is real and go to hell.. the bible has been proven real in science why would someone just make that up? everything dosent have a scientific explanation yes theres flowers made out of cells and stuff but what kind of great power made it able to grow? what scientist could have made the universe and the sun? humans cant even get near the sun! honestly.. idk why someone wouldnt believe in god.. nut it has to be your own personal choice.
