In my life I have worked hard to achieve many things, I came from a poor background and was forced to go to church and told this is the way I must believe, and when I questioned I was told not to question just do as your told. I often wondered why I was not allowed to question things about God, in the first place if he did create me then why did he make me so curious? As an adult I work my up in a company and became successful,left that company and did the same thing again, I done this all on my own without any help from a higher power, and wonder how and why educated people gather like sheep to a slaughter to these beliefs when they are mostly illogically? I respect your belief system and will not argue it with you because it is a mute point. I just wished you would respect mine. Now i await the hate messages from the religion supposedly founded on Love!! Thanks and have a Great Day!!

If you dont want to argue an you await the hate messages then why did you even post this?Do you really just want to argue or do you seek attention?

It's an utter waste of time to even try. Especially in this area. Although I do understand where you're coming from.

So, here you are yet again wih a new name. You have to have set a record for being the dumbest sumbitch ever. You need to get out more often and get some sun for your pasty white arse. Specialist has another name, imagine that.

How would you know if a higher power didn't help you if you don't know? I really didn't see anyone not respecting your belief or the lack there of since you started the entire subject yourself. If you don't want attention or arguments the why start it to begin with? Atheists and non believers will believe one day. When you die, you won't be able to confess or deny on this planet. You'll be gone and no one will care except the funeral home owners wanting to get paid.I believe in what works for me and can tell you from my experience that there is a God and He does answer prayers. I have seen with my own eyes the mist that accompanys or leads the way for the Holy Spirit to enter a sanctum of holiness. It gave me a vision that I didn't understand, but things that followed showed me. It was like I knew but couldn't say it. I know it sounds way out there, but it is the absolute truth. Every person is given the free will to decide if they want to go to Heaven or to the pit with the beast. If you really want to know, all you have to do is have a contrite spirit, seek and ask. When you're shown you will believe. I'm not preaching to you or at you, just telling what happened to me.
your choice

I use to get on here an argue with people that did'nt believe,but not any more.Like the other person said,God gave us free will,an i can only chose for myself not everyone else.I would love to see everyone seek after God,but i wont sit an beg no one or argue with anyone any more because the bible tells us not to.An not only that but it also just drives people away that much more.

I dont want to argue with you but I'm curious to know. How do you know a higher power didn,t help you along the way? are you married? Does your wife believe? The reason I'm asking these questions is because I have seen God's help in my life and I dont feel that I have deserved it so I've searched Scripture seeking why? I've come to believe its because of my wifes strong faith in God. I have seen God through her and it has been a big influence on me as a person. I believe in the power of God but I'm no holy roller and will have plenty to answer for when my time comes. Life sure is a mystery isn't it?
