Do You Believe There Is A God?

Postby Mr.L » Fri Oct 17, 2003 7:38 pm

Personally i do not belive in god. I have my own opinions and i know why i feel thisd. I have read the bible and i knwo what im talking about. Just this is a good topic and cna be very intelligent. Ifya do belive in god why? and if you dont why not? Please though christians and atheists or any other religion, dont get stressed out if someone doesn't agree, its their opinion. Also it would be good to see what cultures people are from.

I believe in god.
Im not the sort of person to go to church on sundays etc but i had my son christened as i felt it was important.
I dont know if god exsits but he is someone we all turn to for help in times of need. I know he doesnt help but it gives us hope.
My view is too much dependance is put on god when really we need to be searching ourselves.

I went to sunday school as a child but only cos my parents wanted to get rid of me for a couple of hours so i went with a neighbour. I was never christened and have never been to church with my family. I think this made it all very confusing and i have now come to the conclusion that i am more scientifically minded than religious. I did RE at school but never had any feelings towards religion.

Nowadays i think dont think there is a god, but i would never ever disrespect or contradict anyone who did. I recently went to a funeral of a good friends husband and during the ceremony i did hope that he was looking down on her cos i know she believes in God.

It is all very confusing i know but personally i just believe that if there was a god, he wouldnt let really bad n horrible things happen in the world.

Everyone is different though and i have respect for peoples beliefs.

I think it's fairly well known that I'm a born again Christian.
This means that I definitly do believe that there is a God, and that he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, down to earth to die on the cross for the sins of the world.
I was born into a Christian family, but that's not why I'm a Christian. It was my own personal choice to become one, and I've never once regreted it.
My beliefs shape my world, my thoughts, my actions, and my words. Not a day passes by when I don't take heh time to commune with the Almighty. He's my Rock, my Saviour, and my Friend.

On a moderator note...please do not let this turn into a huge theological debate on which religions or beliefs are wrong. There is to be no persecution of any belief...Mr. L has asked if people believe in God, and what different backgrounds people have come from, nothing else. This could easily turn into a huge deal, but lets keep it clean and friendly.
HE has all the answers

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.

Yes I believe there is a God
the way the world is though it is pretty bad makes you wonder sometimes
But I believe there is something
whether it is whay the bible says or it is something more spiritual I dont know
I got married in a church because that is what I believe as I take the vowels seriously
At christmas I do often think about the possibility of jesus and if it is true then that should be thought of instead of the commercial side

Even though i don't believe in God and Depman said he does, btu wonders why there is so much bad, a point can be reversed depman and you could ask someone why is there so much good in the world if there is no God? Just wanted to point that out. Are there any buddhists or hindu's about? And yer please keep it friendly it would be good if this turned into a big post with peoples opinions and we could learn new beliefs and otehr views. But hopefully not in a rubbish R.E lesson way. So Fidel religion is the opium of masses? dja want to explain it to people here who do not know?

I don't believe in a God.
I believe in nature and the effects it has on our enviroment.
I think that there is a force that binds all (Not the force or the one Ring!) but it has no face it just is.

I wonder what the world would be like without it.

There would be a lot less war, theres holy wars going on right now but the people who sya they belive in the words of their God must be stupid. All main religions are pacifist and therefore no murder. yet they kill for their "all loving" Gods or Allah. (i think its Allah or Alla). The only religion which doe snot cause wars is Buddhism. The only thing they do is demonstrate violence upon themselves to show the horrors of war. Quang dunq (i think agen) set himself on fire whilst peacfully sat in the lotus position he killed himself to show what war does cause. death. his picture is seen on on of the (if ur familiar to this wiekd band) Rage against the machine album covers.

I was going to quote that. On their self titled Album. It is quite a shocking Black and White Picture. I think Bin Ladens followers all Plaguirised writings in their religious Tomes in their Jihads as well. Twisting things to their own ideals.

Only a bit of advice this topic might turn a bit nasty
maybe we should just keep to Do you believe in god
It just looks like the topic might take a different direction 8)

But which God? in the Hindu religon they have quite a few.
It would be a bit racist to say God because other religions have other Gods or deitys, Not even gonna go in to the Jedi Religion.
