I don't believe in God. Mostly because of the mess of this world.

And anyway, even if he did create this world, then why doesn't he clean up our mess like the flood in Noah's Ark? Get rid of all the indecent people? God doesn't really care about the little problems in life and He probably knows that we won't be united for some time. He probably doesn't want to interfere, and wants us to try and create peace by ourselves.

That, or, not everyone believes in God. God's just a supernatural creature created to bring hope into people's lives. Most of the time, God isn't there when we need him most.

That's why I've stopped believing in him. Yeah, giving up on him just because he didn't answer my wishes does sound selfish, but it's just not that. It's the fact that God isn't always there. Not even the most faithful followers.

well some religions use free will as an excuse why there is pain in this world, but to me i say if there was a god then he must have been a life form not of this earth, now that can be taken alot of ways, sure he is a god, but what about god being an alien???

i know to a religiouse person thats just crazy, but what would happen if they came back to see how we devoloped, ohh shall we say by the year 2014 give or take a year,

and what about the myan calender ending soon, and that the world as we know it will end, that can mean a lot of differant things

i say open your mind, i did, i read the bible, but i also read other things like the books by zacheria sitchin, the earth cronicals, i find it to be a very interesting read, there are several books in the series,

all i say is open your mind, dont just believe the first thing that is put in front of you, search for your own answers, not the answers your parents found

wat i heard from my friend is that, god wants peace, violence and chaos is a sin! if god really did exist then y doesnt He help us!! y are there still tens of thousands of pplz dying everyday of starvation?? y is there war still going on in da world? global warming, animals getting endangered and being extinct?? does that mean all the pplz who committed crime are all going to hell??


You know when God created the world he made it perfect and he never intended for man or any of his creating to go through suffering..But man fell into sin that's why all these things happen.. Ofcourse God does want peace God is never violent and he has nothing to do with sin... There's a reason why all the bad things that are happening today happen its not because God wants it to but keep in mind we're leaving in the last years and these things have to happen before the end comes and every person that doesnt follow God's son will have to suffer in hell for the rest of eternity but for those who follow him and commit their lives to him he'll wipe out every tear and there will be no more suffering and pain..

Also God is really sad about whats happening and all those people who are suffering are protected by God..He really loves them and cares for them.. And he created people like us so that we can help those who are starving and Global warming etc etc are rezults of what man has done not God..Like i said before God never intended for these things to happen.. When God's creation moans he moans along with them..

Here's a verse that mentions the stuff that will happen during the last days

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains

Because he doesn't exist. And even if one did, the world wouldn't be any different.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

- 2 Timothy 3:1-5

He *does* exist! just look out the window. See how geniusly the universe is constructed. God doesn't want pain either. But shit happens. Why doesn't He intervene? I think that question does not matter.

Think about this: if God would inetervene and remove all pain and misery, even death, what would be the purpose of life? What kind of superficial creatures would we, humans be? Wouldn't our lives be really shallow? Would we even be happy if we wouldn't understand "something like "misery" exists?

lots of questions eh?

all to be blame is human. if only they obey God, from the very beginning, there wouldn't be chaos, violence, and all the things that is evil. but humans are hardheaded and they do what they want so God let them. and here's the result, we all see and feel.

why wouldn't he clean all this mess? well, He will, someday.... not today because if He will, lots of people wouldn't be saved. He wants us all to be saved. we are all witnessing the events written in the Bible that is slowly happening.

God is always there for us, but we don't acknowledge Him. open our eyes and we will see the gifts of the Holy Spirit even the smallest one.

the story of Jesus is stolen from pagans eh? take a look on the old testament, there are lots of prophecies there about Jesus. the old testament is connected to israel's history. and accdg to what i've read here on Cr, even islam acknowledge the existence of Jesus, only, their belief is different from ours, christians....

God exists, because if He didn't, who created this world? Jesus became a man, because if He didn't, who can save us, the gentiles? who can save the mankind?

we, christians, focus our minds and hearts on the new world, the new Jerusalem....

What about other religions are they damned because they don't believe in God or they believe in many Gods..........What if Jesus's second coming was when he rose from the grave? The Bible did mention an "immediate return"........these are questions in which we can't answer, the Bible doesn't answer everything because you have to ignore some material and just believe. Why is sin perpetual and never-ending if Jesus gave his life for us ? Finding your own answers by reading outside your personal religion, I think is the best way for resolve.........God exsists.......
