Ef.4:27,Re.12:9,Ja.4:7, If you do not believe in god, you will find yourself in a mess. Bad live in hell, then die & go to hell!
---ELENA on 11/23/12

Are you created? Do you have a soul? Are you no better than a dog or a mule? Will the wicked get away with murder, abusing other people and God, stealing, breaking God's laws? No, there is a judgment Day. The Bible did not set out to try to prove God's existence, God just merely declared it, in Genesis, 1:1.

The most accurate history book in the world is the Bible. The Bible contains many fulfilled prophecies. These prophecies written as much as 700 years before their fulfillment offer ample and certain proof that God exists.
---Mima on 10/22/07

Prophecies such as: the rise of 4 different nation and how they affected God's people
2: The bible science of a round earth when all " smart men" thought it was flat
3: Bible science that air has mass
4: bible science that there are paths in the waters of the seas and oceans
5: prophecies concerning Jesus 1/10000000 chance of being fulfilled and yet 100% fulfilled

I said it on another blog but the firmament speaks of God. when Christ arose He had many witnesses that saw that Christ is alive. the human body is so simple yet so complicated and we do know we didn't evolve into humans as some think, but we are wonderfully created. I just can't fathom anyone not believing in an almighty God. my Savior lives and all other gods are dead.

People never think this could happen to me.Glad I know Him and still got to get agape.
---ELENA on 11/4/12

I first felt there must be a God about 10 years before I know who He was.

It was when I realised there were some real rights and wrongs, and that what I was doing then wasn't right.

But it took me ten years till God guided me to people who taught who God is, that He is good.

But my first idea was moral - for me
---Peter on 5/4/12

---ELENA on 4/3/12

I believe in God... Jesus Christ. I believe in him because he loves me. He carried all my sins and saved my life till this day. Jesus Christ came to earth and died for ME / us. He died for I can live today. God provided for me in my times of need. When I pray... He hears me. God created us... He created the air we breathe and the ground we walk on. You should believe in Jesus Christ the Lord Savior God. Not any other.... Jesus saved, rescued, fed and nurtured you. He loves you and you should love him back. Pray daily and thank him for life. Give your life to Jesus... Love Him.
---Dannah on 3/2/12

MarkV, Yes we're blessed every day, the day itself a blessing as are many other things we are given, in the spiritual and natural. I never want to forget Gods provisions either, especially Him, He is all, and all (good) comes from Him. I was away a few days with my dad and siblings in upstate New York. Nearly 2 years ago it seemed my dad might die, He had little relationship with his own children, but God has restored much and blessed my him in many ways. Our days are numbered, and I'm thankful for opportunity to spend time, to see God working.
Thank you Mark, last summer God blessed me with much time soaking in His Word, but we need to be doers as well as hearers, and theres much doing to be done with children and other responsibilities.
---chria9396 on 12/18/11

Christina, so nice to hear from you. I had not seen your name for a while, hope you are doing good. We are so bless each day. I never want to forget all the things God provides for us each day. Nice to hear from you, Keep answering.
---Mark_V. on 12/16/11

---Mark_V. on 12/12/11, Thank you Mark. I appreciate the encouragement you give to many here. As for suffering, when one is in pain, if outside of Christ, they can see little if anything but that pain. All our pain is perhaps most real to self, however, He is able to lift us above that pain if He chooses, and Im sure He did in cases such as when Stephen was stoned to death, and Stephen prayed in words much like Christs on the cross that Father would forgive the very ones stoning him. Our pain and suffering ought to teach us something of God, whether to trust Him, to know His comfort, to correctalso, none has suffered as Christ has. Be blessed MarkV
---christina on 12/16/11

Mary, do not worry about it. Sometimes its hard to explain something correctly and others take it the wrong way. I'm human like you, and I feel the pain you have had. I did hear about your brother. Sorry I said your mom, there I had that wrong too. Love you, and praying for all of you who are going through suffering by sickness or loss of someone. This holiday's are hard for me also. Love, peace and blessings to you and everyone else.
---Mark_V. on 12/15/11

Hi Mark V, thank you, I might have misunderstood you, I'm real sensitive right now anyway. Oh but it must be another Mary who's mother died, thankfully for me, mine is still alive. Both my brothers are gone and my dad but I do have a mom and sister left. God bless you. :)
---Mary on 12/14/11

Mary, sorry if you took what I said the wrong way. Maybe I wrote it wrong. I did hear your testimony on your mom and what you are going through. What I meant is that as humans, our reaction to many things comes from our human nature. You say your mom died and you have suffered, I understand the suffering you are experiencing is real big. I have been through that myself when I lost my dad, mom, wife and my sister within two years. But when someone else hears you, they feel bad but their feelings will never be as yours. They take it for granted because those things have not happened to them yet, but it will one day. That was all.
---Mark_V. on 12/14/11

Hi Mark V, I agree with you that Americans don't suffer much compared to Jesus, certainly, or a lot of other countries. But when you say that we whine "forgetting people have to die": when I grieve for my brother, I'm not forgetting humans have to die, I'm deeply missing the man I knew and loved and don't have anymore. I hope he'll be in Heaven but only God knows. My pain may not be as much as others, but it's just as deep to me. God bless.
---Mary on 12/14/11

Chria, beautiful words you gave sister. Some people suffer more then others. But think back to the disciples, they suffered a lot, put in prison, stoned, whipped, and at the end almost all were beheaded or put on a cross, all this for teaching about the suffering of Christ on the Cross for the sins of many. That's real suffering. Here we live in America, have great cars, tv's go places, food to eat, our suffering is not much. Yet we whin and complain every day about something we cannot have. Sure we lose a love one, forgetting everyone has to die. We mind a little if it is someone else's relative but mind alot if it's ours. I know each one's pains are great to them. We take many things for granted. Beautiful words you said.
---Mark_V. on 12/12/11

Mary and Elena, I am happy to see you both trusting Gods sovereignty through your difficulties. We know God is able to heal, and pray he does, but the heart is what matters most, and His purposes prevail and will be for good. Mary, grieving is a hard process and takes time. I know God is the Comforter and pray He continues to be that and more through this season. How wonderful that Hes given you others to be a blessing at this time, and that you are able to see those blessings!
---chria9396 on 12/12/11

Zane, I'm sure you are not with us anymore since I have never seen your name before, but here is my answer.
If you don't believe by faith in the works of Christ (The eternal Son of God) on the cross and His resurrection, which means, believe in God by faith, you will continue going to hell. How's that for an answer. Any other god will not do. Only Almighty God Jehovah of the Bible will do.
---Mark_V. on 12/2/11

Why should anyone believe in God?

I don't know about others, but since I was young (pre-teen) it did not seem reasonable, or logical, that all around me had just 'appeared' for no reason.

Same went for right and wrong - there had to be a reason why some things are right other things wrong.

I can see no other reason except that both a because of God
---Peter on 11/30/11

Why should anyone believe in God? Let me ask you this question - if God does not exist and you believe then the truth is that you lose absolutely nothing. However, if God does exist and you do not believe then you lose absolutely everything. Choose Christ this day as your Lord and Saviour!!!

It is by God's grace that i come to believe on God ever since I am aware of the things happening around me.
When I look up in the mountains and the sky-it declares the glory of reading the bible only by then that I come to know that this words are written in the bible "The heavens declare the glory of God,
the skies proclaim the work of his hands".)- Psalm 19:1"
---mj on 11/16/11

I LOVE so many of the answers here! I will add
Psalm 19:1-4 "The heavens declare the glory of God,
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech,
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words,
no sound is heard from them."
---chria9396 on 11/16/11

Allan, you gave a great answer. I liked the part where you said,
"The Almighty Creator who is the source and sustainer of the universe and every detail within it. That is why all people should believe in The God who is the Creator and the maintainer of the world"
How very true that is.
"And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He doesth according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or say unto Him, "What doest Thou?" (Dan. 4:35).
---Mark_V. on 11/16/11

Zane, directly to your question: "Why should anyone believe in God?" And the simple answer, without the colour of particular religious doctrine, is this: No one, in all of history, has been able to explain adequately, demonstrate and account for the first nano-joule of energy or the first sub-atomic particle. And although there is much noise about the "big bang" and similar theories, each of these theories is given with certain elements of the universe in place. However, before there was anything, there is God, The Almighty Creator who is the source and sustainer of the universe and every detail within it. That is why all people should believe in The God who is the Creator and the maintainer of the world.

Jed I am with you. I do believe there is overwhelming physical evidence that the God of the Bible is alive and well, as Romans 1:20 clearly says. But (as you say) there is the long-term experience of Him. This is the God who saved me, washed away my sin, and my guilt. He has been with me, guided, and corrected me, and healed me and answered my specific prayers for others. No one can tell me that this relationship is not real. I could liken it to travelling long-term in a country. having done so no one can say my experiences there were not real. Because they are.
---Warwick on 11/8/11

Why would I not believe in something that has been proven to me over and over again in my own life? If I asked you why you believe in your mother, you would laugh at my question. You know your mother exists because you have known her, spent time with her, talked with her, felt her love, and had a relationship with her. Just the fact that you exists proves that you have a mother. The same is true for God. God has proven His reality to me in ways that are just as real as the evidence that suggests you have a mother. I would have to be a complete fool to ignore the evidence that is right before my eyes.
---Jed on 11/8/11

There are many great comments below!

For me, to believe in God is to be-live in God. That is, belief or faith is experiential rather than mere mental assent. Paul said:

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Now if indeed faith is based on substance and evidence, we should all be able to tell of the times when God performed miracles on our behalf, answered our prayers, or comforted us in sorrow. I believe that this telling of what God has done for us personally is the "witness" that Isaiah spoke of:

Isa 43:12 .... ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.
---jerry6593 on 11/8/11

Joseph said it well.

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is unique as He alone is Creator of everything, which is so obvious those who will not believe in Him "are are without excuse." Romans 1:20

Paul "proclaimed" Him to the Athenian sceptics "The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else."

He is no religious figure teaching good living but the Creator of everything!

This is the uniqueness of our Saviour, beyond feelings and opinions.

There can only be one Creator.

As humans we all worship something "a god". Something that we rely on, something that consumes us, something that we defend, something we base our attitudes on, something we place our security on. The list of common gods for christians are relationships, religion, truth, money, work, church, predestination, free will, Bible, self, kids, evolution, marriage and many other heated argument on this blog.

Because "since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that [mankind is] without excuse."
Although "No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [him]."
Therefore "the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. Lift up your eyes on high, And see who has created these things, Who brings out their host by number."
---joseph on 11/6/11

If you don't believe in God, then explain how a heart is transformed thru a miracle of being born again. Explain how God made our bodies, so simple yet so complicated. Explain how the universe in totally in sync. Explain how animals reproduce when they know nothing about reproduction. Anyone who does not believe in God is brain dead.
---shira4368 on 11/6/11

How do you know when you need fresh air, when you want to hear your mothers voice, when a small line from a poem will break your heart? How do you know when youre hungry? When an insatiable hunger, a craving wells up in you, do you search for rocks, sticks or plastic to eat? No, you look for real edible food that will sustain you. When I was unsaved, a hunger for something grew inside me that had to be quenched. The story of the Gospel came along and filled that hunger, becoming the poem, comforting voice, ray of sunlight shining light into a dark and confused heart transforming my life forever.

With reference to the blog wanting to know about the stars and planets maintaining their respective places in the universe,A planning mind of a man named Newton discovered that God had made the objects in space to attract each other in direct proportion to their respective mass' and inversely proportional to the sqauare of the distance between them. With the latter in mind,if one doubles the distance between two bodies then the attraction would decrease to 1/4 the original force. Double distance squared equals 4 which,in inverse,means a decrease to 1/4.
Many things God made at start are being found out as man progresses in the study of the universe.

Blessings to all, for many years, I did not believe in God. But at the age of 42, all that changed. I knew that something was missing in my life, and then I heard the truth about how Jesus Christ died for me on the Cross of Calvary so that I could spend Eternity with Him. My life has never been the same since recieving Him personally as my Lord and Savior. Another point about believing that God is real is how do the stars and the moon and sun stay in the sky without falling? Something to think about!
