PSALM 146:8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind,

( It's GOD that opens eyes and gives ears to hear.)
DEUTERONOMY 29:4 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive,and eyes to see, and ears to hear,unto this day.

Nothing. They are walking around, DEAD PEOPLE....How does it feel to be a "Born again" believer among so many dead people? STRANGE!

joseph, your advice was very good. You explained that very well and to the point. Love that.

Many people seem not to believe in God. In fact, there seems to be a hatred of Christians right now. Jesus said "If the world hate you, remember it hated me first". So if the world hates me because I love the Lord, it's their problem, not mine. I will be with God for eternity when my journey on this earth is over. I may suffer while I'm here but I will be in heaven with Jesus afterwards. Heaven will surely be worth it all.

Because they think there's no evidence that God exists. Many people think that humans wrote the Bible, so they're not convinced by it. Every religion gives people personal experiences, so many people don't find that type of story convincing. Most of the other reasons for believing in God are based on what we DON'T know. They call these god-of-the-gaps arguments.

Through ignorance and wanting to do their own thing. Since they cannot see God in the flesh they tend to not believe in what they cannot see. Even though that is what "faith" is. They feel they are their own gods,so to speak. They direct their own lives and believe in luck and that sort of foolishness.They embrace the untruths they have learned from infancy and never seek the truth for themselves. They live by their own rules and die by them,also.

Its a good question. I can sort of understand when things are going well for people as ive been there, but many people that have had near death experiences still have no desire to know God even though they have gone through things way out of their own control.

"Why do people not believe in God?" Because "this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." "What do they see other wise?" They see self sufficiency, self will, self exultation, see themselves as self sustaining, therefore are blinded in their arrogance.

2 Corinthians 4.4.

For the god (satan) of this world has blinded minds of unbelievers, so they cannot see or hear the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ'.

Read Revelation 6, towards the end....when Christ returns and His wrath is so much so that the 'kings, princes, generals et of the earth ask for a mountain to fall upon them rather than face His anger'.

They will believe then!

**He is very plainly explained by his word.**

If your god can be plainly explained by ANYTHING, then your god is obviously too small and cannot possibly be the God of the Bible.

To say you fully understand God is to claim equality with Him.

Ofcourse, believeing in God will not get you to heaven. But the reason so many people does not get saved is because they love sin. Man loves darkness more than light. Noone ever thinks about heaven or hell, They only believe this is it, what is right down in front of us on this earth. Thank God, man is wrong.
---catherine on 6/4/07

Common sence, atheist, science in no way shape or form is in conflict with scripture. Outside of Literalism there is no scientific argument for atheism. Atheism (not agnosticism) is a faith based paradigm, as much as any theistic paradigm. My argument for God is ontological, using science, scientific method itself is an argument again atheism.
---MikeM on 6/4/07

Because man believes that they are a god unto themselves. Man don't think they need God. Too much money, too much power, man thinks that they have all the answers. And all this equals out to the dreaded sin PRIDE. Men do not have all the answers, and until we all come to this conclusion, men will continue to make messes, in and around the world. WE NEED GOD.
---catherine on 6/3/07

It's called pride, that is what self-sufficiency is. Man thinks that he is good (I hear that a lot) and that he does nothing wrong. Well God says that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Right through history starting with Cain who thought his works were really good and led him to killing Abel, man has always made his own way to God and his own salvation. "Jesus is the way, the truth and the life" and He is the only way to the Father.

Is Santa Clause real? No? But many kids believe he is. That is, till they grow up and understand its proven that it is just a story. Its scientificaly impossible. Just like the bible is a bunch of stories. There is scientific evidence against it. You can believe what you want, but you have to understand they are just stories.

MYSTICAL JESUS?? friend there ain,t one thing mystical about my God. He is very plainly explained by his word.stop thinking with 2 minds and think with the renewed mind in Gods ways.
---tom2 on 6/13/06

part 2, funny thing is let some catastrophe enter their lives a man the deals they try to make with God,or the crowds at the doors of the chirches, hipocrites.God won,t be mocked for what a man sows so shall he reap.sow the flesh reap from the flesh ,sow the spirit reap from the spirit.
---tom2 on 6/13/06

people don,t believe for the reasons christ told in the parable of the sower.they choose either through the cares and strife of life to reject the word, or reject it outright, or try to live two lives {one foot on each side of the fence}very few actually live a fruitful life in Gods word.
---tom2 on 6/13/06

It,s especially bad today, have you ever watched one of those science programs on discovery channel?? wordly men just love and need to explain everything.Well guess what? you can,t explain God. he can make sense to the spirit through faith, but physically he is not able to be explained.Gods kingdom is spiritual,his ways are beyond our thinking or understanding.without faith it is impossible to please God or know him. first you must believe.

The whole story of Christ is mystical,.Awesome to the point we "traditionally" have gathered in HIs name since the Catacombs. We speak scripture by heart or memory and have prayer meetings as the first Christians did in the dark. The unforgivable sin is denying Christ,some will never come to Christ... on His terms.Lulac3895

Question 1: Matt. 5:16

Question 2: 2 Cor. 4:3-4
---Leon on 6/10/06

It all seems too magical to be true. Whenever a believer cannot answer a question they just say something like, "it isn't meant to be understood" or "we, as mere men cannot understand that, but we will know when we get to heaven!" When they ask for proof they are told "dont question GOD" or "God does not have to prove Himself" OR that "proof is everywhere, miracles are all over" which is not true.Thats my opinion why some people dont believe in God.
---sue on 6/10/06

Talked wth a non-believer yesterday while witnessing on the street. He say he knew that God's Son was the way, but he was a free agent and could make his own choice. I mentioned that hell will be forever. He was Young college man very selfcentered.
