How can the fact that I accept...

that I can not prove god exist, I can not prove the bible is true, and can not prove my religion right make me any less Christian than some one who falsely claims they can?

  • you just have to go with what you feel and not feel pressured by what society or family feel you should do.
    some people just play along for the sake of others, while keeping their lack of belief to themselves.

  • Not being able to prove something is true but still having faith in it are two different things. Even though we as Christians can not emphatically prove that God exists, and the Bible is true, we still need to have faith and believe these things in order to be a Christian. We have the faith that Jesus is who He says He is and that He has the power to save us from our sins and take us to Heaven. The bible says that without faith it is impossible to please God. I can't PROVE this to anyone, it takes faith to believe. It takes faith to be saved and ultimately it takes faith to be a Christian. Even though you can't prove these things, do you believe them to be true? do you have faith in God and the Bible?

  • If you do not believe the Bible to be true, if you do not believe that God exists, than according to God you can not be a Christian. Because it is these beliefs that are the core of Christianity. Being a "Christian" isn't just a title or something someone was born into. It is a belief system, it is a way of living. :-)

  • It doesn't. Those that say can prove to anyone that God exists are lying to themselves. It takes Faith. Faith is a gift from God. Some choose to accept it and others choose to reject it. While those who choose to reject, for the most part do so because of others. Those that have warped the word God. Used the word of God for their own agenda or hate. While I don't agree with you on many levels, It's mainly because we are different places on our paths. It's up to us individually to learn absorb and come to conclusions. To be open to God and what he is trying to tell us.

  • Proof in your eyes may vary greatly to what another person interprets as proof. That does not make you less Christian is just makes you a different person than the one that you might be disagreeing with.

  • It doesn't religion is based on your faith and that has to be enough for you, ignore everyone else.


    Answer by RyansMom001 at 5:59 AM on Aug. 27, 2010

  • It doesn't. God can't be proven, which is WHY is requires faith. If someone could prove it, faith would be unnecessary.

    Answer by DusterMommy at 7:21 AM on Aug. 27, 2010

  • It doesn't faith is all you need.

    Answer by older at 8:32 AM on Aug. 27, 2010

  • it should not. Religion only has power when you believe in it.
    Like Santa?

    Yes, like Santa- I know you were writing that to be a slam on Christianity because although you profess to be a liberal-in most cases you are just as narrow minded as those you abhor-but back to the Santa thing-its OK to believe in Santa if you want, just like its OK to believe in God and Jesus-its when you use your beliefs against someone else that the problem arises.... to mock someone based on their beliefs is just as bad as mocking someone for their lifestyle... its all the same thing-makes you no better. The key to opinions and beliefs is to use them for positive-not as a weapon against another.


    Answer by soyousay at 3:49 PM on Aug. 27, 2010

  • Faith. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. You know wind exists but you can't see it, hold it, or touch it. You can only feel. If believing in all you do feels right then have faith. ;D
