Default Is God Real?

Simple question, and this is just that question

is GOD real, not if the christian/muslim/jewish interpretation of such a god is crappy

so i'm wondering, is God real?

I mean, I find it very hard to belive that such a being exists,

yet so many people believe in him..

I think as long as a person receives faith, hope, security, and strength from belief or disbelief in God, then that's what really matters. I am fairly confused when I think about the existance of God. In the other thread about god creating everything it's an endless debate and I play "devil's advocate" a lot and try to show people all sides of a situation. But does God exist? Yes in every true believer. Is God real? is he tangible? can he be seen, touch, actually heard? I don't think so... so that's a good question. Is God real?

Yo really can't discuss this. Religion is a sensitive subject sometimes, and people believe what they believe. Myself, I believe that god is something you can't comprehend, it is like energy or something.

Man, I've been in many of these threads for the past few days. Ok I'm sure some know that I'm a Christian. And I do believe there is a God b/c of what I've seen and have experienced.

God is real. Just b/c u caint see him doesn't mean he's not. It's like tellin a little kid that Santa is real. After they hear that a few times, they gain faith in him. And if u end up tellin them he doesn't exsist, they may or may not continue having that faith. It's pretty much the same way with God. It all comes down to faith my friend. And faith comes from hearing the word of God.

And if u want to know what I've seen and experienced then I shall give u a few examples.

My mom was in the hospitol after gettin hit in the head with a puck. She prayed to God and so did I (I wasn't a Christian then, but I felt like I had to). And after a few days, everything was back to normal.

My father lost his job in the military, then got hired by a company on the base here. He gets paid $17 an hr. And now, he was offered an even better job in Gorgia. He'll be building jets and gettin paid $20 an hr.

We had to move b/c the rent was too high for us to pay. So after a few months of looking, the great Lord sent us to this wonderful house that has a really low rent. It's only $400 a month for 3 bedrooms.

Non of these r a coquencedence my friend. There really is a Lord...A God. U just gotta gain the faith...But u cannot believe with ur brain, u must believe with something else.

Default Re: Is God Real?

I would first like to say that I am Christian as well and that I am coming from a biased point of view. I believe that there is a God, and not just a "god", but the Christian God.

The Bible points to a God from the very first verse. "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." It also states that belief in God is the beginning of wisdom and understanding.

You can see God in the external world today. The plants, planets, oxygen, etc. So many things must be done to maintain life, for instance, if we were any closer to the sun, we would all burn and die. It could not be this orrderly if there was an explosion of some sort IMO. Humans themselves show that there is a God. Any other creature on this earth cannot reason or communicate to each other to the extent that humans can. Humans also have the abillity to discern from right and wrong, unlike any other creature on this earth. God created humans special.

Then there are personal experiences that ak has mentioned.

The evidence for a God is there, I think. You just haven't looked for the proofs yet. You haven't come with the belief that there is a God.

Wouldn't it be better if we could continue discussing this topic instead of locking it because it is old? It is a discussion...

I'm not one to really take sides as my views are mixed.

I believe that the world was created by God. That he cultivated it. There's some evidence that some events took place.(Like when they found the wood on the muntain and they believe it's Noah's ark.) But then again, I believe some of sciences points-of-view. I believe that we evolved from monkeys.

But here's another thing. If the bible records from the dawn of time, where's the mention of the dinosaurs? They don't even "exist". Also, if God does exist, why is he not stopping our planet get all messed up?

Like I said before, I don't take sides. I'm just raising some valid points from both sides.

How would they be able to know the dinosaurs exist? The first dinosaur bone and such wan't found until the beginning of the 20th century? I Think... plus they didn't have the technology and such... blah blah blah... Now to my point.

God is not physically real, but I do beleive that he exists. If he didn't, nobody would beleive in him. He exists spiritually. He exists in your minds, your heart... he gives you hope and all other stuff... Now, is God real? Not physically, but in our imaginations and dreams.

I think that this is more non-physical than physical itself. What I think is that if you believe there is (are) a God (Gods), then there is (are). If you do not believe that there is one, then there isn't. It's that simple for me, since it's not something that anyone can prove physically.

You can't argue about these stuff, since different religions will say differently.

From my own POV, although I am a Buddhist, I don't believe in "God" or whatever. You can't see, hear, smell or touch him/her, what makes you think he/she is there? You do actually realise we're just praying to a statue every time we pray, right? Well, that's just my opinion.
