i used to feel that way too. i was really bullied back then, being treated as an outcast or some sort of curse (but looking back its hilarious). then i asked god to give me a friend and life went a LITTLE better after that...



that's great! I thought people would hate me coz I believe in god






....I was abused before....

of course not. i have some unbeliever friends who dont care as long as i dont lose my insanity...



all of my friends believe in god but only a few people here at CR believe in god

Life can't be meaningful if you don't believe in god? Just believing in an afterlife makes my life more meaningful? That doesn't make much sense. Telling people that their life is meaningless without god is just elitism. You devote your life to god, go to church everyday and do good deeds and your life is more meaningful than a person who doesn't go to church, doesn't believe in god and still does good deeds? If you want to believe your life is more meaningful with god, thats fine by me, but don't go around telling people that their lifes right now are meaningless.

the purpose depends on what religion you follow. For Christians, our purpose is to be beings of worship, we were created to love and worship God. However, God had given us free will so that we may have the capacity to truly be beings of love and worship towards Him.


Wouldn't it suck if GOD said, "you will only love me. A man will no longer love a woman. Only me. A woman will no longer love a man. Only me"?
The feeling of brotherly/sisterly love is of course different to a heterosexual love.


Not to mention, GOD has Jesus, his right hand man.

So, what are we, "the toes"?

God didn't say we can't love others, in fact He commands us to. Luk 10:27 He answered: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" Jhn 13:35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." Jhn 13:34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.. I can post many many more, there are tons of verses in the Bible saying to love one another, and in doing so we are also loving God.

Jesus is God, He is in the Father and the Father is in Him. They aren't the same person but they are One. Jhn 14:10 Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Jhn 14:11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. Jhn 15:9 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.. Again, there are numerous verses where Jesus states that He is the Son of God and in the Father, and that the Father is in Him. Those of us who believe in the name of Jesus and repent of our sins are in His love and remain in Him

God loves us all and shows no favoritism. Act 10:34 Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism Rom 2:11 For God does not show favoritism. The Love of God is beyond what we can comprehend. He loves us enough to die for us and suffer the punishment that we deserve so that we might be saved. God loves us all with unfailing Love, one could say He loves us with "All His Heart." We all may have a personal relationship with God and have a closer relationship with Him, but God loves us all beyond hat we can even imagine.

About that, so God was implying that homosexual relationship is acceptable?


Act 10:34 Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism Rom 2:11 For God does not show favoritism.

Was there a part in the bible where people had to paint the front door of their house with goat blood?
And, whichever house that did not have the paint blood on their front door, the angel will come inside and kill the first boy of the family?
Why did he resort on doing that? Instead of peaceful ways, he resorted to inflict death to his own creations?

thats true!

I don't see how.

I don't need a "supreme figure" in my life to give me meaning. We only have one life to live, why sell it away to something we will never truely know until our demise?

Well you have to believe in something, or else what is the point of your existence?

Kinda sad when someone brings up a topic about God, atheist become butthurt and feel like they need to respond to every.single.one as if they're making some kind of point by shouting over their keyboards, "There is no God, "Theory of Evolution!"

Actually I'm getting tired of both of them arguing about God and if there is one. Because obviously neither of them are getting through to each other.

I do believe in something. I believe quite strongly that there is no god of any kind and if there is, he's a bully.

Only half joking. But seriously, that's what the discussion has been about. The point of existing.

I believe it is more important to care about others just because you want to help them, and only because you want to help them, rather than because you want to get into heaven or get bonus points.
