I just don't understand why it is such a problem if people choose to believe in God, Heaven and Hell. I mean let's just say that none of that exists, but you have believed and tried to be the best person you can be--no harm done if once you die it all ends there. Now, on the other hand, if it all DOES exist, and you have NOT been a believer, well I would certainly think the Gates of Heaven are a lot more appealing than the Gates of Hell!! So my point is, what is the problem with people using the Bible as a tool to teach them how to be a good person and try and live a good, clean life? I guess I don't see how believing is a bad thing. Besides, if I choose to believe, it has no effect on your life, so what difference does it make?
So believe or else! Exactly what all the churches do! You will go to hell if you do not believe...sounds more like a cult!

The burden of proof is on the believers because y'all claim he exist.

No, my point was that why does it bother you if people want to believe? No one can make you believe in something you think doesn't exist, so why do people who want to believe HAVE to prove to anyone that Jesus or God is real? The truth is, believe if you want or don't--doesn't effect the outcome of what I believe in one way or another. I was simply stating that I don't know how trying to live your life by being decent and having morals is such a bad thing. And what's wrong with wanting to believe that there is a wonderful place like Heaven to go to after we die. I certainly hope that this life on earth is not all there is and then I die. So when you have a loved one die, do you think you will never see them again? I mean maybe we won't but it gives us some comfort in believing that we will. But you have already made your mind up and nothing ANYONE on this forum will make you believe any different. Your just trying to rile up the one's who believe so that when they try and defend what they believe in, you can call them hypocrites and the such. Choose to believe or not, it makes no difference to me, but NO ONE has to prove anything to you. I mean, I haven't actually SEEN a million dollars, but I still believe it exists. I'm not asking anyone to prove it to me!!!!!

God ain't real...end of story! All you need is faith within yourself to survive in this shitty-ass world and when you die who knows what'll happen. Thats it!

you can not see the air you breath,but you have faith that you will draw the next breath of air.you do not see death,but you know that one day everyday will die,you can not see a baby developing but you know there is life in a womans stomach.there all many things in this life we can not explain,but God is every where bad things happen to good ppl,but thats why we have choices.we can not see God.but i have hope that there is life after death.i have faith that when i pray he hears me.i have faith that there is power in prayer.if you do not have faith you do not have anything..nobody can make you believe in God you have to have faith just like the air you breath.God is like the wind you can not see him,but you can feel him everywhere if you have faith.

It is a shame that we stand daily in the power of God and can't see him or choose to judge God on the actions of men.but think about this... whose name do you call out when you are afraid, elated, deviatated, terrified, or angry? That one name has been on everyone's lips transcends all barriers race color creed. How does the sun burn at just the right temp not to kill how is the air we breath just the right mix not to be toxic. I found it easy to believe because I know Jesus. I met him the day he put me back together.My world has broken into dust. Have you ever tried to glue grains of sand together where every grain has a place and needs to be in its place. I have it is impossible. You just canl'tv figure out what piece makes the heart beat or which one makes the brain think straight. God knows. One day you will turn around and he will be right there waiting just for you with arms wide open.Bless you!

So you are meaning to tell me that "God" is just nature? Such as the wind, the sky, the trees and all that other stuff? Because I don't think that he is a "spirit" as many people say, i think its just a myth or nature itself. I do however believe in a life after death and thats possibly a rebirth as a new person...call me crazy but thats MY new belief.

He is real and I have proof! Here's how you answer your question, go get a gun, put it up to your temple and pull the trigger. Then you'll know, but remember, the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

Oh, now that I'm thinking about it, use a shotgun instead of a pistol.

Noi was meaning you have to have faith.God is real,but you have to have faith in all the things you can not see.you want proof something you can see!you want worldly prrof that he is alive,but nobody can give you that.you have to have faith..if you was to have faith a pray you could feel his spirit around you.If you did not have christianity you would not have many good ppl..look around you not at the bad things but the good things most of those nice ppl who give and give are christans God is of love.christans are your lights in a world when all is dark.nobody can show you proof all they can do is tell you and help point you in the right directions,but if you have faith then you will see what others are talking about..

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. Proverbs 3 5:7

We are not ment to understand and how could we begin too. I will pray for anyone who does not believe but you will not shake my faith.
