hey guys this is not way to hit one on your god or any scientifical randomness

i just want to ask ... when ur all alone and no one is there for you ... can you hold a cross and really feel comforted?

does it really feel like this god is there for you at all times ... no matter what ... and even though people are suffering around the world its really just some part of a grander design


i ask because over the last few years even though ive been an athiest i was raised in a catholic school and ive always found the cross comforting for some reason, when you feel god what is it really? do you really know he's there or is it just you working on your beliefs and feeling something you know may be something else but believe is god

i just want to ask becuase i felt something the other day and im confused as to what it was ... sorry it was a personal experience and i wasnt in a church and i was far from any preachers i was alone

when you feel alone and you know you're alone but something feels warm around you and there is no noise but something is somehow saying everything will be ok and im never where you cant reach me ..... it was the first time ive ever felt that ... was that what you people call god? because i am both scared and confused

Refer to this thread: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-25406/What-is-GOD.html

And no, I don't feel comforted by merely holding a cross. It might be that I lack faith, but I prefer solving things on my own and taking the initiative to rid myself of my qualms.

Well the cross does signify salvation and hence, hope. So it is pretty understandable why you'd feel that way.

for my 16 birthday, my mother brought me a special platinum cross, and i've never taken it off ever since, it's been over a year and it is really important to me, I guess when i hold it, it reminds me of what my mother was praying about when she gave it to me, and holding it helps me conquer my fears... especially when i have nightmares about being chased by psycho killers... they spook the f*** out of me...

don't laugh...

not laughing ... its cute and logical .. by the way ... you're a genius ... the reason ive found the cross so soothing is because it reminded me of a simpler time ... at primary school ... a nicer time ... wow ur really top notch arent u sis

yeah!!! wow... hope that helps you, i thought you were having a religious experience, i was so jealous! but maybe this is a religious experience... maybe people's lucky god that gives them strength is other people's love for people and their hopes... or a nice experience they once had...
