So many Gods talked about here, have you felt enlightened, puzzled, irrirated? Havent found something satisfyng you yet? Wow, do I sound like advertising? Ha-ha-ha ... I hope nobody converts from religious to atheist ...

Although I have no faith of God but my mother does,and she has been a christian for nearly four years.I must accept that having some faith really helps those old ones a lot,when my mother got something troubled then she would pray sinceryly at night and can can calm down after that.No matter the God has really resolved the problems or not,my mother has got a more peaceful mind than before.So thanks to the God very much!

Why make the unwarranted assumption that the ann101 is confined? A person who is not restricted to one religious ideology is far more open than one whose mind is shackled to one set of beliefs. If the door is not locked or there is no door no key is needed.

You must come here to do missionary work man2sting!As here in china so many people have no beliefs.Although here are Buddhism,Taoism,Christian,Catholic and so on,but not much believer.I love myself,love and respect others,and do right things as God taught,so whether having faith of god or not is not important.

There are no so many Gods/gods. It appears to be so because, religions the world over have come up with answers to life's questions in different ways.Then they had their languages. Different names to refer to God.YHWH,Allah - the "words" to refer to God or that One Supreme Being that Controls whatever happens to this great and varied Creation--- are more than anything else a limitation of our own languages than God as the Reality. Shocked and unbaked religious people the world over are everyday converting Atheism,that is, the idea that there is No God Chance rules(Probabilism or what is called as syadvaada in Jainism), and Science provides [B]all[/B] answers. I belong to a religion rightly called Sanatana Dharma but(unfortunately) popularly known as Hinduism - which is erroneously assumed to be a Polytheistic(!?!)/Pantheistic(this is a bit better) Religion. I dont think the existence of many gods puzzled or irritated me in the least. But I am more irritated by people who claim that their religion is the truest or their God is the real God.I do not know whether to laugh at them or feel immense pity for their ignorance.

I think ou did not get the intent of my last para. You would do well to read it once again.I said the presence of many Gods doesn't make spiritual experience difficult or impossible. It is the attitude of some religions [I need not say which] that hold that their religion is truest hence their gods are the truest that irks. IOW people irk not God/Gods!!!!

In my religion Islam, the idea of creating man is that God wants the earth to be managed by the creature inheritated by His nature. That's why there's a feel like God in human. Those who believe will find perfect numbers on both palm lines 8+1 and 1+8 which make 99 n belong to good names of God God's name is what your fingers tell, all is written in Arabic.

Personalized or no God is there to manage the whole universe and creatures. Why should we compete each other as to prove it? There's brain and sense to use. In case you can't feel it I think because you have put your God-like intellectual above anything.

Faith is the word that we have to practice , it is believing in one thing that you have never seen..In every religion this is what they teach most, have Faith in God...So when we talked about God and then we Have different religions,many Gods are being talked here, its hard to insist in one religion your own belief because that starts the conflict..Many God many religion, one Religion One God...the latter will never ever happen...Thanks!

Talking about God could enlightened someone. You may never that that someone needs some encouraging and through posting good messages about God, that person has been enlighten. It is also one way of expressing gratitude to the Maker who have created us and for all the provisions He has provided for us without asking in return but to proclaim His gospel.

well, i've chosen one God already. and as time walks by, it seems like He had chosen me instead. and i admit, there are lots of thing in this world that i cannot enjoy because of this God and His religion. sometimes i feel like in prison. but it's okay, because this God could suppress my natural killing intent. if i didn't "met" Him, i'm pretty sure that i've become a good and stalky serial killer right now. so in summary, i'm grateful for what He did on choosing me.
