    Likewise

    I believe in the infinite wisdom of Nature as a whole, of which we are parts and not seperate entities.

    AW: Do You Believe In God?

    I only believe in myself! What/who is god? Which god? Yahweh, Allah,...? The only thing what "created" us is time and nature-No god!

    In nomeni patri et fili et spiritus sancti, of course I believe in God. Sic semper infidelis

    I would like to believe in god(s). Unfortunately, in everyday life, I see no apparent manifestation of the divine. ZERO.

    I pity you. One day you might. Try reading Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, some Plato, the Bible, St. Augustine's City of God and if you can be bothered digging your head into it, perhaps Summa Theologica by Aquinas. I plan on buying Summa Theologica tomorrow.

    Re: Do You Believe In God?

    There are two words in the question which bother me: "believe" and "God". (Doesn't leave much, does it ?) I distrust belief. Being an agnostic, I admit it when I do not know whether something is true or not. As I see it, belief is asserting the truth of a statement that I do not know and cannot know to be true, just because I want it to be true. I try not to "believe" anything. I am willing to accept the truth of an unproved proposition as a a working hypothesis to be tested. If it can't be tested, then I refuse to accept its truth. I admit my ignorance. That is what agnosticism is all about. I think that it it a vastly more honest intellectual position than faith......Philosophical speculation in the areas of ontology and cosmology has led me to consider seriously the concept of intelligent design by a supreme being as opposed to random chance as an explanation of the remarkable coincidences which must otherwise be postulated and accepted to account for the fundamental concepts of physics......There are three fundamental physical constants: the gravitational constant which relates gravitational force to mass and distance; Planck's constant which relates the energy and wavelength or frequency of a quantum of electromagnetic energy; and the fine structure constant which expresses the probability that an electron will capture a quantum of electromagnetic energy.....Pretty abstruse stuff, you may say. HOWEVER, unless each of these constants has EXACTLY (out to the sixth decimal place, anyhow) the value which it does have, thic universe could not exist. The range of possible values of EACH of these constants is infinite. It seems remarkable to me that even one of them has just the value required for this universe to exist. That all three of them should boggles my imagination. Did this happen by accident? I think that that explanation stretches coindicence to the breaking point. But if not accident, what ? It seems to me to be hard to escape the notion that this requires the intervention of an intelligent entity......I call this, admittedly hypothetical, entity the Supreme Being . Such a being is inconceivable and incomprehensible to our intellects. Any attempt to conceive of it leads merely to anthropomorphizing it. Whatever this being may be, there is no reason to envision it as , in any wise, resembling a human being. One can speculate that it must have consciousness and will in order to do what I have suggested that it did: to set the values of the fundamental physical constants and establish the laws of physics (whether they be prescriptive or descriptive) required for this universe to exist......I do NOT see that the existence of such an entity requires that it be concerned in any way with the lives and actions of individual human beings, or that it be amenable to persuasion by human beings. However much back-bending, self-abasing grovelling a man may do, there is no reason to accept the idea that his entreaties can influence the inexorable operation of the laws of nature. For this reason, I find the anthropomorphic concept of "God" preposterous and rather disgusting. It depicts the Supreme Being as vain, avid for praise, susceptible to flattery, capricious, and often vindictive. What a mean paltry concept of a sublime entity !

    Not sure... He didn't get in touch with me for years. I'm still waiting...

    You've to be mystic to believe in God, I'm not.

    A question many people ask is, if God exists, and if he really loves people, then why does he allow tragedies to happen? There are many theories regarding this, and Christians aren't the only ones who have answers. Wouldn't the theory that God created everything and then withdrew from the scene make more sense explaining that? Or perhaps dualist beliefs? Maybe to some they would.
    Anyway, I am not interested in going on "crusades" to convince everyone that there is no God, as I believe in the freedom to believe, so this was rather an explaination of my personal beliefs.
    God is not passive in his creation. Because such a God would not be one to answer Prayers or perform Miracles. What the Bible tells us is that God knows every hair on our heads and knows every sparrow in the sky.

    God lets tragedies happen because God tests people with them. He wants to see if we worship him only because we receive good things from or we worship him because he is God. Also it is said The Lord giveth and The Lord taketh. We don't know why we just have to trust that God is doing the right thing for us.

    Suffering is also the result of the consequences of our own free will. If God created us without free will there would be no suffering but we would also not be capable of noble and selfless acts.

    They are so complex we can't even conceive what our origins were. Evolution can only explain the mechanism of life. But it does not explain the origins of life.

Of course this should not be surprising, since historians state, and rightfully so, that in 1914 Germany was the most Christian nation in Europe.

    I remember my Papa saying to me that he lost ALL of his believe in God when he was a Flack-Schütze as a 15-year old in Germany. Seeing civilians, especially children, die around him, he could not understand how a loving God would allow this. So I can well understand why you said what you did.


    To answer the question: Yes, I believe in God, and by His sovereign grace I am a Christian.

    Thanks for sharing. I believe God is good despite the great evils that has happened in human history and will happen. I have doubted God certain times in my life but than my eyes were opened to the fact God does not promise all we be easy in this life only that if we follow him all will turn for our greater good in the end.
