Hello there. We have often heard of 'Seeing is Believing' and 'Believing is Seeing' Which one do you agree more with? I personally agree more with 'Believing is Seeing' Many times, what we see may not be what is true. For example, a friend may appear very nice in front of you. Based on that you may say he is a nice person. However, he may at the same time be talking bad things about you behind your back. Hence, we can never trust 100% of what we see. It ultimately depends on our judgment and experience. I believe in God. I have never seen God before but i believe in Him as he has worked in many ways in my life. I am very thankful for that. Though I have never seen Him before, I know I can trust Him and belive in Him.

Yes, I agree! What you believe is mostly what you see. It doesn't necessarily imply that you believe is literally seen. I hold the love and trust my loved ones give me. I put my strong belief into it though I have not seen it. Why? I feel it! This is my only reason why to believe is to see. See not what the eyes can't see.

Rather, see what the eyes can't see!

Yea. As the saying goes, 'Walk by Faith and not by sight'. What we say might not be always true. We must learn to use our heart to see. Thanks for responding. =D

Hey, poohgal, I have the same answer as you. I also believe in God and that doesn't mean I should see Him to believe Him. It's like believing that there's air that we need to breathe even though we can't see it. ;-D
