    Do You Believe In God?

    Do You Believe in God?

    Yes I do. I think it's the only logical conclusion to the questions of how did we get here and why are we here?

    I grew up in Sunday school. But I had many times in my life where I've doubted the existence of God. At least a benevolent one.

    Anyway, somehow I believe in something higher, you may call it god, although I really doubt it has to be one singel "god", it maybe as well many.
    It is not that I am really a believer, yet I sometimes think it might be possible, and I don't want to make these beings angry

    Personally, not really, but I don't deny the possibility 100 %. We aren't sure who/what created us, and it's fair enough to develop theories, but then why limit the answer to "God"?

    Re: Do You Believe In God?

    To me God exists simply because such a being can be conceptualized. If God doesn't exist where do we get this concept from?

    Arguements of the Existence of God from Thomas Aquinas. For me I find these agruements rather water proof.

    Other things can be conceptualized too - or other gods. But while I respect Christianity and find there are positive things about it, I am not irrefutably convinced of the existence of God. Moreover, I am not convinced that this God is omniscient and omnipotent.
    Let’s start with a quick experiment. You can grab three coins and actually do the experiment, or just do a thought experiment.

    Drop one coin and watch it fall. Do this again. Hold out the third coin.

    If you were to do this again, what do you think would happen? If you could get ten good Christians to pray that this next coin wouldn’t fall, would it still fall? How about one thousand faithful Muslims? How about one billion people of any faith? I think that it would still fall. Drop the third coin.

    Our understanding of the world around us, and our abilities to predict what will happen are based on naturalism — the basis of science. Naturalism is how all people live their lives most of the time.
    http://www.godlessgeeks.com/WhyAtheism.htm

    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.

    No.

    Origins to our creation are much more complex than simply crediting some mythological being with our existence.

    Re: Do You Believe In God?

    But I had many times in my life where I've doubted the existence of God.
    I grew up in a home full of traditional values such as love for family (a marriage relationship between one man and one woman), home and country.
    Neither one of my parents were Christians during my childhood. Yet, so much of the teaching I received from my parents were grounded in traditional Christianity. 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.

    AW: Re: Do You Believe In God?

    I believe in the fate and the timeless circulation of the being.

    Von einem neuen Glauben

    „In einer Zeit aber, in welcher die eine Seite, ausgerüstet mit allen Waffen einer, wenn auch tausendmal verbrecherischen
    Weltanschauung, zum Sturm gegen eine bestehende Ordnung antritt, kann die andere ewig nur Widerstand leisten, wenn
    sich dieser selber in die Formen eines neuen ... Glaubens kleidet und die Parole einer schwächlichen und feigen Verteidigung mit dem Schlachtruf mutigen und brutalen Angriffs vertauscht."

    DAS BUCH, II:1/414
