Why Should I Believe In God

As an agnostic, can any one give me reasons why I should believe in the Christian God? In particular, reasons that cannot also be promised by other religions? In a way I'm asking what makes Christianity unique and why does that uniqueness warrant belief?

Although, I've been troubled with my belief lately, This is what I see a different in "Christ" worship from other religions,but it ultimately takes a leap of faith to accept any other logical answer. God is all powerful. God wants people living rightous lives by CHOICE not command. Man says, easier said then done, because you God are exempt from feelings of lust, greed, etc.God says,OK, I will come to earth in human form with human feelings, live a rightous life, even in the face of extreme cruelty, always preaching love to show that it can be done. Therefore, "Christ"-both man & God, chose to accept suffering overcoming human feelings, so we may know that it is possible to live a rightous life.

skeptical,the uniqueness is accepting jesus as Gods son,aka being born again of the spirit. Then living an obidient life, daily, and daily becoming more and more like christ,more and more obidient to Gods will for your life,and reflecting this lifestyle so that people can see it.
---tom2 on 9/13/08

I understand that you are sceptical as not all people will believe In Jesus.But the fact is that God has created us all in His image wether or not we may believe in Him or His Son Jesus Christ.
God Has a plan for us all wether we may be christians or not.
The amazing thing is that regardless of what you have done God Almighty loves you and he cares about everything that goes on in your life. Now I am not saying that when you become a christian that everything works out, but in the midst of your sorrow or pain or confusion you can cling to a God you loves us all. So give God a chance and Ask Jesus to come into your life and if he doesnt change your perspective in any way then there truly is no God. Jesus Loves You

If god really exists and created everything, why didn't he just create the world without sin?

Why did he create the tree of knowledge?

Why did he create the serpent?

Your god fantasies have no logical consistency. Now tell me they don't have to make any sense because we don't understand the mind of god, that every messed up thing that happens in the world has a purpose from god but we just can't know or understand it, and then contrarily that your proof of god is this perfect world.

Do you have any beliefs that don't contradict one another?

athiest, NO thats where your thinking is wrong. God did not setup the world as it is.he made paradise,and man,namely adam SINNED just as man does is SIN in the world that causes all of mans issues,not God. but adam answered God when questioned about why he ate the fruit,oh the woman you gave me bade me you see from the very begining from adam man has tried to blame your not abnormal ,your just flat out mistaken.its your choices,your attitude,that makes your life well adjusted,or miserablely skeptical,not God.

You misquote me. what I said was:

But HE is available, in any situation, to help people conquer or bare difficult situations.( that should be bear, not bare)

I stand by that without alteration.

Eventually the Germans were conquered. Those who died avoided further heartache and pain. Those who survived often learned much about the human spirit, forgiveness, love etc. and went on to contribute greatly to mankind.

The trouble with you is, that unless GOD meets the conditions YOU have set up for Him, you will not believe. If He had to match YOUR template, He would not be GOD.
Are you pouting because you think God is not fair? What makes you think He ever promised life would be "fair"?
---Donna66 on 9/6/08

Jami, there is many people like you. I have a son who also believed in God and went to college and from there on questioned everything. His mom died and it got worse. Each of us have questions. Just read the questions that Athiest ask, and you will see there many question whether God really exist or not. You are not along in this. Many have little faith because of what has happened to them and their feelings and emotions cause them to doubt. God knew this would happen. He left us here to continue in a world of sin, and many things are going to happen. God promised eternal life, He did not promise that we would never suffer. That, sometimes is the gospel some preach, that everything will be great. Just not true in this life.
---Mark_V. on 9/6/08


I have broached this question many times using not only Hitler, but Stalin, Lenin, and Pol Pot.

The basic question still remains: "If God is omnipresent, omnipotent, had the ability to create and control everything we know including ourselves, why does he not do anything when such terrible things are committed particularly led by one or a few men?"

It seems to me that his inaction points to his non-existence. Can you tell me why God is missing in action at such times...

I am not stuck on Hitler, but you seem to be stuck on an answer to this question.
---atheist on 9/6/08

Atheist Those perceived to have been lost to His madness, or any other, have gained the riches of God's glory prepared for them. Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Jesus came that we may have life. Father has given all power unto Jesus, in heaven and on earth. Jesus ushered in the dispensation of grace. He did not come to judge the world (as this current sensually based system of things), but rather to save (as deliver man from) it's grasp. We are instructed to judge nothing before time. He has set His time of judgement. I dare not say I know the mind of God, however He has given me the mind of Christ, that mind tells me not to return evil for evil, but contrawise overcome evil with good, our Father will do no less.

Atheist, Ps.115:16 "The Heaven [even] the heavens are the LORD'S, but the earth hath He given to the children of men." So the more appropriate question would be. why did man not act to rectify the issues of your inquiries?" Answer Jer.17:9,10 "The heart [of man is] deceitful above all [things] and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Therefore "I the LORD search the heart, I try (examine) the reins (interior self or motives), even to give every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings." Father uses men like Hitler to bring up and out of us, all that is within us, for our own examination, to destroy them before their purpose was served, would defeat the Father's own purpose for them.
---Josef on 9/6/08

Atheist your 9/5/08 post was beautifully stated. Quoting you,

"At least you've got something. Something outside of yourself."
Beyond ourselves would have been more aptly put.

"Belief in God gives comfort. But it does not prove god, or that the bible is the word of god."
That belief (reliance and assurance) is proof, for it would not be possible without his presence, His word or His influence. That comfort and certainty is available to you as well.

"Ultimately believers chose to believe what they believe, each finding god within themselves. If there is a god, that is where he is anyway..."
Exactly, search within Atheist, and you to will find Him. It is He that led you to this site.

Donna: "Given these conditions,tragic things happen, not because God wills it, but because of the conditions He set for the world from the beginning.

But HE is available, in any situation, to help people conquor or bare difficult situations."

So God created people so he would have them to interact with. Then created the laws of the universe and sat backed and watched? But he is "available" to help out sometimes and help "bear difficult situations" when he doesn't?

So during the Holocaust with Jews praying for help, and millions of Christians praying that Hitler would die, the best God could do was help everyone bear it?

God does not treat the dolls in his playhouse very nicely...

---tom2 on 9/5/08


There are many good things people get from religion. They get strength in the bad times from god, and it really doesn't matter if hes imaginary or not. When you lose a loved one you can believe that you will meet again in Heaven. Fear of god can mediate a temptation to do something that you know is wrong. Again it doesn't matter if god is there, or if heaven, or hell are real, or the bible is the word of god. At least you've got something. Something outside of yourself.

Belief in God gives comfort. But it does not prove god, or that the bible is the word of god.

Ultimately believers chose to believe what they believe, each finding god within themselves.

If there is a god, that is where he is anyway...

If you were a potter would you create a vase to use as a camber pot or would you use a chamber pot to display flowers in it. The point being God is God how will the pot ask why it was made for a beautiful purpose and the chamber pot ask why it was made for it's purpose are not both made for a specific purpose and have a specific use?

can all things be made vases only or should all clay vessels be made chamber pots?

Should all people be made Black/white?

Where do you think the design and purposes should stop and why?

If you can come up with a better purpose than that which God has designed, do you think you would have done a better Job?
---Carla3939 on 9/5/08

Jami-- Your doubts are very common.

Think of this:
For some reason, God created human-kind. Christians believe it was so HE could have a relationship with them. Thus they had to be sentient creatures.

To interact with each other and their God, these sentient creatures must have the ability to make choices.

The universe must operate by physical laws that are reliable, so that the sentient creatures will be able to interact reliably with their surroundings and each other.

Given these conditions,tragic things happen, not because God wills it, but because of the conditions He set for the world from the beginning.

But HE is available, in any situation, to help people conquor or bare difficult situations.
---Donna66 on 9/5/08

I came to this blog with the similar questions to Atheist though I personally consider myself agnostic. I believed in GOD wholeheartedly until college when I took a class that disected the Bible, "The Philosophy of Religion." I have questioned spiritually and GOD since that class and think about it at least every day of my life. (I obsess over my lack of belief). I want to believe, but I cannot. I don't feel that it is a matter of unwillingness, I just cannot find reason to believe (not to mention a few tragedies that have occurred in my life). I teach my son about GOD and we pray together at night because I want him to make his own decision regarding his belief. Faith is important. Trust me, it's no fun being faithless.
---Jami on 9/5/08


I think you misunderstand my point. If God is just, loving, omnipresent, and omnipotent to the point that he created everything, why would he allow Hitler, a miscreant by anyone's standard, to cause the death and horror that he did? Why would he allow innocent Jewish children to be gassed and not intervene?

If he breathed the breath of life into all of mankind, why didn't he just suck it out of Hitler? Why did he allow Hitler to create Hell on earth and wait patiently to demonstrate his wrath and power?

As for the story of Job...Please explain how a loving god, who should have no need of ego, given he created everything, stooped so low as allow Job to be abused and tortured by Satan to prove Job's faith. God should protect his adherents, not let them suffer to test their faith. Was god so inconfident that he needed to test Job? Was he just showing of to Satan?

uniqueness? jesus died for you.took upon himself your punishment,pretty unique i would say.
---tom2 on 9/5/08

Atheist Re: "why didn't he intervene with Hitler?"
The wicked are reserved for the day of His wrath, and the unjust unto the day of judgement to be punished. The LORD is not slack or slow concerning His promises, as is considered by some, but rather patient, not willing that any should perish, but that 'all' should come to repentance.
What if The LORD has determined a set time to demonstrate His wrath, and to make His power known, and simply endures patiently those vessels of wrath that are fit for destruction? We can be sure that the Father's judgement is just, He will render to every man according to His deeds. The Father is merciful, however, He will judge without mercy, those who has shown no mercy, in His time.
---Josef on 9/4/08

athiest,its amazing how you say the bible is a storybook,then use scripture too try and blame God for the actions and choices of people.but you forget the biggest and greatest answer of God about mans life in this world.namely that he sent his son as a PERFECT sacrifice for sin to die in our place,to take our punishment,for our sins,so that we might be justified through him in the eyes of God and washed clean so as to have commune with God again.the answer you keep looking for is in jesus,and jesus only.not in your opinion,or in your constant ridicule of GOD.

God I understand is the penultimate supernatural being. He created the universe, Heaven, Hell, earth and everything living. He is omnipresent, omnipotent and immutable.

But God could not stop Hitler, because " ...satan has been deposed,but not yet taken out. He is still the prince of the power of the air."

So god must defer to a deposed prince you call Satan?

Better to believe in neither, be vigilant, and take responsiblity for our lives and the earth ourselves. Sitting here imagining a battle between two imaginary beings doesn't seem very productive.

I was on an airplane on the last lap of a long journey. We had just crossed via a transit airport. The flight attendants offered us snack just to see us through the hour long flight. It was not not much - a cup of tea and a couple of packets of biscuits. Most of us took them because they were free of charge. One couple near me refused them, after all they were banking on being home in the next hour. But half way over the Atlantic a problem occurred and we had to return to the last country we were in. This would mean waiting for another plane to be sent. It would delay us by a couple of hours we had gone through customs there was no shop available. We should accept free gifts. Just in case. It might be your last chance before home.

Eventually everyone is going to die. Either by cancer or someone shooting someone. Whether by genocite or just plain murder. God permits this things to go on as His plan of redemption continues as He so ordained. In our eyes it looks as though God didn't care of those who died, but He was very much interested in everyone yet everyone who dies has a date. If God had removed Hilter and all others then He would have just removed sin from existence because that is what causes everyone to do what they do. Since Adam many have died through many circumstances because of sin, and God will remove sin when redemption has ended. Through every single instance of death, God works in the life's of others who are left.
---Mark_V. on 9/3/08

Athiest has good questions. Questions that everyone should be able to answer. Some things of God we will never understand but those things He gives us information on we should know.

Hi, you say "why didn't He intervene with Hitler" and I wish I knew. However one thing I do know is that many people of all faiths risked their lives to save some of the Jewish people. That courage it took to do that was GOD's purpose for each one that risked their lives, whether they acknowledged Him or not. God DID intervene just not in the way we would have liked Him to. My brother was murdered many years ago and I would love for God to have prevented it--but I see now how many people God used to minister to my family and am thankful He did.

Therefore All who died before His first coming, as well as those who die "ignorant" of Him, having never heard His word of salvation, die in Him, and will be taught of Him during His millennial reign.

Atheist Case 2. Continued. "He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he has not 'believed' (relied on, depended upon and trusted in) the name of the only begotten Son of God"
Case 3. "God so Loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. And this is the Father's will which sent Me, that 'every one' which 'seeth' (perceives and recognizes) the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day." "If we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

You should believe in your God, because he believes in you.

I call myself an atheist because I am an atheist...

My statements regarding Hell and punishment and the questions I posed to Jerry on 8/25 point out want I think is the best proof that god does not exist:

Reading through these many blogs, the entries show a range of beliefs, regarding the ten commandments and/or the new covenant and what that means, heaven and hell, salvation and the afterlife, of incredible vastness. If you all "knew" god and there was a god, you would all have the same belief and say the same things.

If you all knew god I would have had ten people all giving me the same answers to those three questions.

Any takers?

Athesist: Why do you call yourself an atheist? It is obvious that you BELIEVE in God.The problem haven't fully SURRENDERED to Him,and have no fear of Him.This is my explanation.You have not been transformed by the renewing of your mind.You are still CARNAL,sold under sin.Stop sitting on the fence,and cleanse your heart.You are keeping God in your hip-pocket,taking Him out whenever you want to confess your sins.You have no deep abiding relationship with Him.Only an occasional EMOTION.

Atheist: I read your thesis on God's love,unbelievers,and the lake of fire etc. One thingstands out very clearly,those who reject God's offer of salvation will not BURN IN INTOLERABLE AGONY,BEGGING FOR WATER.They will INSTANTLY burn to death God is much too merciful to gloat over those who are burned.The OT offers us many instances of God's repentence of anger against the Israelites after trying His patience.But, someone had to stand in the GAP and intercede for them first.A wonderful example is the flood.The only righteous people He could find was Noah and his wife,thier sons and thier wives.God is just,merciful and loved us enough to send us a Saviour,who was beaten beyond recognition and crucified for us!

Your reason beloved, is the Father's Love for you and your love for Him. A love that has been "shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit." For "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him." Therefore do not "be weary in well doing: for in due season we will reap, [a harvest of good things prepared for us] If we faint not." Do not cave in, give up or quit dear heart, you "can do all things through Christ (the burden removing yoke destroying power of God) which strengthens you." Trust Him.

Truth is always unique, it is blessedness to believe him and it is salvation to obey him, and the Everlasting God Jesus Christ can never be matched by any religion.

Case 1: I am completely ignorant of "god" and "god's word", but somehow I live my entire life following the 10C.

Case 2: I am aware of "god" and "god's word", but somehow (by accident) I live my entire life following the 10C. BUT I DON'T BELIEVE.

Case 3: I am aware of "god" and "god's word", I BELIEVE, have accepted Jesus, but have fallen many times (violating many of the 10C's), asked forgiveness again and again.

Please clarify for my slow simpleton mind...

What would be my fate in each of these cases?

All other religions work their way up to be accepting by God. Christianity is the only religion that aknowledges that's impossible. God had to reach down to us. If God created the universe, then God is not anything in the universe. (That's why God can't be found under a microscope) Scripture says that God is Spirit. Sin created a chasm that seperated God from Humanity. The one who was born into the world and yet born uniqely of God has connected the two again. Through Jesus we can know God and experience God. Only one way to know if it's true. Believe this and repent or you can conjur up questions till the cows come home. Why shouldn't you believe?
