it's Not hard to believe in God...

Can you see love? Well you can see a hug, kiss etc but you can't see love. So is love real?Where did it/people all come from? 1) Some people think the universe has allways been around, creating itself, but this theory doesn't explain where matter itself came from.2) Others think that the universe just happened by chance. Certain elements came together in the right place, right time. But if the whole universe was a big accident, why do we see form & order?And even if the universe did  happen by chance, where did the material to start it all come from? The second "big answer" ignores the question of where it all came from too.3)Some say that the universe was designed by an intelligent cause or agent(intelligent design). 4)Still others use the Bible.Still some think "that God stuff isn't logical! It's not scientific! It doesn't make sense! But does it?

    In fact, it's the easiest, most natural thing I've ever done in my life! God is Good,and never fails me, never lets me down. God is everything to me,and I'm nothing without Him. Great post,by the way.

  • it address the question "where did it all come from?"  in the first two answers,either the universe itself or molecules would have to have come from nothing. With no action from any outside force. And that don't make sense! God creating it all is the only answer that answers "the Big question". It takes alot of faith to believe the right molecules where in the right place at the right time. You could also believe early forms of life were able to develop into more complex forms. No one has recorded an amoeba becoming a more complex life form.  If simple life forms evolved into more complex life forms, layers of rock in the earth would show it. Simple fossils would appear in the lower layers & more complex fossils in higher levels. Many Mountain ranges,though,show complex fossils in the bottom layers, with simple fossils on top! THERES MORE

  • And you've heard of missing links. Scientists have searched for years to find fossil evidence to link one species to another.Genetic chances do occur within each speices, but there is no evidence that a simple species evolved into a more complex ones. The Bible clearly states that the living God created life. He spoke matter into being, then made many different creatures. At least two scientific principles support  belief in creation: #1 Conservation of energy. Energy can't be created or destoryed- just transferred. And it takes a huge amount of energy to create a small amount of matter. Where did the energy needed to get things rolling come from? The Bible says the source was God.#2 Second Law of Thermodynamics. When left alone, things tend to decay & become less organized.( Think of your room after a few weeks without cleaning it up!)

  • Just the opposite would have to have happened for the universe to have come into being by chance. The BIG decision- options #1 it all happened by chance, or by Gods choice.Its in Genesis.Not all christians act very christian so don't let a few bad apples repersent all.The ritual as you call it (Jesus dyeing on the cross) seems weird to some , but Christians believe it was necessary. His blood took the place of our blood, so we don't have to die, instead we can have eternal life in Heaven. And all we have to do is except him into our hearts, ask forgiveness of our sins.

  • yes true in fact its nice that you posted this question as on saturday hubby and i were talking about human "evolution" which we don't believe obviously, i put it this way, in the bible God said, "let's make man in our image,after our likeness, and God is not a monkey or ape, now this might be a little out of context here lol but we were also wondering if dogs were created just like other animals were, or if they are an evolution?

  • It may be easy to believe in God, but it will be hard to be christian. You can't eat certain foods, wear jewellery, have to go to church ona certain day or else you risk the mark of the beast. You can't have alchohol, coffee, tea anything that stimulates. Must be careful what you put into the temple of God, which is us. Not only does that include food and not piercing/tattooing BUT that includes entertainment as well. Maybe even our very emotions. You can't be gay/bi/even thinking about sinning you have already done so. You break one commandment and bam they are all broken automatically. HAve to pay tithe "10%" of your earnings PLUS give offerings of your own free will PLUS use your money for your necessities only and understand that the money you earn it's not yours it's God's. Nothing is ours not even our bodies for they were bought with a price! I am anon and I am a confused christian! Sorry God, but your word confuses me.

    Alrighty then, let's use your logic.  Where did god come from?  He must have come from nothing right, but that doesn'tmake sense!   It must take a lot of faith to believe in something that has absolutely no empirical evidence.

  • As for where the universe came from, here is a link that is well worth reading, but I'm sure you won't!

  • Even if you believe in a universal power there is absolutely no reason to suppose that that power is the christian god, no reason to suppose that it's any more than energy really.
