My spiritual journey and personal search for truth has been a long one and I suspect it isn’t over yet. It has been a roller coaster ride but I have come to the conclusion about one thing. I believe in God! I went through phases where I wasn’t sure if I believed or not and at one point I was even afraid of God not existing. There is this rise of Atheism going on lately. It is in the media, billboards, on buses, in colleges, it is everywhere. People like Richard Dawkins and Steven Hawking almost had me convinced that God is no longer relevant in our modern society. God has been dis proven. In my research I would read articles from Atheists on the internet that claim if you believe in God you are stupid or brainwashed. Only the uneducated believe in God. Backwards Rednecks or old fashioned Republicans. I fell in to a deep depression. The thought of there being no God made me feel empty. I was unhappy and instead of living I was just existing. In my heart I yearned for God but I didn’t want to dedicate my life to something and have it turn out to be false. But I never stopped wanting to believe and then one day it hit me. I want to believe in God so I’m going to! No matter what anyone else says I am going to believe in God because I choose to believe in God. I’m not stupid and I was never brainwashed by any religious institution. You can’t disprove God. So if there is anyone else out there going through what I went through I hope this will help you. If you want to believe then believe. Don’t feel like you have to let go of God just because your college professor or any other so called intellectuals want you to. Think for yourself!

I don't believe atheists are really atheists. They are angry with God about something, so they lash out against Christians and the Word of God and Jesus.

The thing is....even the devils believe in God, and they tremble (James 2:19). Believing in God will NOT get a person into Heaven, you need His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus' sinless shed BLOOD washes away our sins, nothing else. Jesus is the Lamb of God......

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." -Acts 4:12

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father by by Him. Jesus is the ONLY way into Heaven.

Valerian, you already 'believed'...

The part of the atheists, media, college, etc is the 'Spiritual' battle that one goes thru as a new believer. Believe me, I went thru it. I got hit hard from all angles.

The conviction of the Holy Spirit is what keeps us going.

The stronger your faith, the stronger the opposition works on you...

Keep the Faith! and congrats for the angels rejoice in another victory!!!

The truth is, only a FOOL claims to be an atheist.

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." -Psalm 14:1
----------

These college professors and other so-called intellectuals that mock the Word of God are usually living perverted lifestyles, and the Word of God convicts them......so they lash out in hopes of casting doubt into a Christian's mind or someone who is unsaved. Satan is using these perverts to keep people from getting saved and/or to make a Christian afraid to share the gospel.

Then like monkey see monkey do, their students go around repeating the same idiotic "atheist" nonsense.
----------

But I encourage EVERYONE to open a bible and read and study it for themselves. It only takes about 80 hours to read, dedicate an hour a day and less than 3 months you'll have read through it. The more you read through it, the more faith you'll have.

Romans 10:17- So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Are you daft? Atheists are really atheists. The problem is, you can't tell us why they are atheists because when they tell you nothing registers.

Atheists are usually brainwashed perverted fools who don't want to repent. Why else do they get so angry at a God that they say they don't believe in?

You rarely see them going after Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, etc and other Satanists. That is because all religions and everything outside of Christ Jesus is Devil worship. The Devil's children don't attack their own.

Yes I have accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and savior. He is my God and King and I live for him now. If I must die for him as well then so be it. I would rather live a short life that is enriched by my relationship with God other than a long life that is meaningless without him.

If they don't believe in God then they are fools. Like you. And name dropping won't do you any good. God is not a respecter of persons

What are you talking about? And why is someone who thinks differently from you a fundie? Nobody made you "deal" with me either. You came to the Christian forum. You clicked on my topic and posted on it. Did someone hold a gun to your head and force you to do this? I'm assuming the answer is no so you don't have a reason to complain about "dealing" with "fundies."

Amen, Jesus is the ONLY way into Heaven. He left all the glory of Heaven, was born of a virgin, lived a perfect sinless life, offered up that sinless life to make atonement for our sins, died on the cross, rose from the dead, and ascended to the right hand of the Father.

The apostles were witnesses of His life(miracles, raising the dead, healing the sick, etc), death, and resurrected body. That's why they went to their death proclaiming the gospel.

The Word of God is the 100% TRUTH! Anyone who says different is a fool!
