  • I don't get this either. There is no way to know for sure, but some people have faith and that's what pulls them through all of their questions or uncertanties.

  • Faith is not about "knowing for sure". It is about trusting what your heart tells you. God or any other form of spirituality is not something you "know" with your brain, but rather, you're whole being; your soul.

  • you don't know if there is a God or not. You can theorize based on personal experiences, upbringing, society, etc. But you won't know until you die, if even then.

  • I know God exists he talks to me and me to Him. I have had many things happen in my life which point to Him such as my release from drugs it was not just a rehab and hope I stay clean it was a total deliverance of I don't think about it ever nor do I desire it. He told me about the birth of my last child before I even suspected I was pregant nor did I want to be. I could go on about the death of my first husband and the new life I have found with another and the various circumstances which surround it. God is real and does exist I know I talked with him this morning and hell is a real place. OK so you don't believe, but what do you have to lose? If God and hell are real you will spend eternity in hell. If I am wrong nothing will happen and I am none the worse off.

    Peace, <>

  • Faith, that's what it's all about.

  • I walk by faith myself.I know that what is written in the Bible are good words on how we all should live and anyone who doesn't believe in God and doesn't want to know him doesn't want to be good and who doesn't want to be accountable for their sinful life.When you try to believe you will have a good spirit in your heart.When I don't read my Bible I get to where I follow the sinful selfish nature-the Bible says when you have Jesus in your heart you will have the fruits of the spirit-love,joy,peace, patience,kindness,forgiveness,faithfulness,and self-control.It would be a much better world if everyone would have these traits in their heart.I was on my knees one night I was fed up with fighting with my daughter and these words all came to me ( and I believe they were from God) and I keep a card near me at all times with these words on them.I need them everyday and they are out of the Bible.

  • How do I know? He talks with me, He walks with me. He loves me and I love Him. He is very real to me. We were created for worship. We were created to desire God and to want to do for Him because of all He did for us. It is just not everyone recgonizes this or they have chosen to reject it.
    Why do you think MUSIC is so prominant . Because Music is in Heaven, everything sings and worships Him. I know He is real because He set me free from sin and my old life. I did not do that on my own!
