I believe that God is a God who delivers all of us from loneliness and pain. I know a lot of you guys might say, "You're brainwashed" or "There is no God". But for me, this is how I got out of my depression, and this is how I found the meaning to actually live my life.

On a side note, I am also getting tired of these topics. Honestly, you're going to get the same results from this topic like any other religion topic, "god-flaming" as RealJudgement put it. And it is tough to read a lot of these posts as a Christian, especially the posts where I'm considered "brainwashed".

Just remember that you're not. True or not, whatever they think. Your faith is your own and no one is forcing you to believe it. When people say "religion is a crutch" I wonder what they do so different to walk alone. How can you go through a normal life and think that it's all there is. How can you look at the world we live in and not see Divinity of some sort?

People are wired different, I guess. Respect thier disbelief even if they don't respect your faith. Don't try to convert the nonbelievers because they'll come at you with things they've heard and read about how it can't be true in a way that is limited to the knowledge of man. But what they don't realise, is that with God, all things are possible.

^ People are able to look at the wonders of the universe and appreciate it all without consideration of a being behind it all. Or they also see that it is precisely because that this is all there is, it is a beautiful thing, a freedom. Be it in an absurdity or a blank canvas that man shapes and fills by his actions. Others find comfort in believing the other way. In the end is just humans trying to find meaning.

But if this were all there was, and everyone believed that, I can't help thinking that the world would be a poorer place full of selfishness and greed for a life worth living on every front.

It's a validation for faith, don't you think, that it enriches the lives of those who have it? It's possible for those without faith to just enjoy the life they have, but were it a widely spread disbelief in a system of judgement at the end, I wonder if humans could cope without degenerating the society around them.

Personally, I believe in energy, not after life. I accept my existance, and enjoy it when I can. I'd like to believe that everyone would do the same, but I have my doubts as to the plausibility. Right now society holds everyone in check with law, but were that to be overturned and faith in a higher judgement cast aside, I can only imagine a darker world would ensue.

Oh man... I always have soooo much to say in these threads but I can't type nearly that much. It would take me hours to talk about in person, let alone my slowass typing.

GOD is completely Exalted and far above mortal description; GOD is not “like” His creation.

Sonicslam101 - *blinks* That was kind of hard to read, but I think you just contradicted yourself within the same paragraph. Religion is poison but it's not so bad? And God brings to mind crap?

You believe heaven can't exist because there is no bliss without sorrow?

But you never gave your view of what God is. Religion and heaven, sure. But God? Not so much. So I muse aloud, what is the God of a person that views life as a balance?
