Is God real

April 5, 2013 1:32pm CST
All my life I've been told to thank God for every day that I wake up. But I have one question how do I know he's real. People say thank God for all the good things but what about all the bad things . I read the Bible and all it did was open up new questions that I can find answers to .

It's only natural to question faith. Human beings are built that way, to be curious and want answers. That is what makes faith such an incredible thing. We have to learn to believe in what we cannot see or hear. I can't tell anyone what to believe in but I can share my personal experience. There have been thousands of times in my life that God has intervened and helped me, even if only for some courage and strength. It quite amazes me because I am so unworthy of His love! There has to be a balance of good and evil in the world, negative and positive. That will never change. But if you have faith in a higher power, you may find that your priorities will change and you will be able to find joy in some of the simpler things in life. Like a baby's laugh or a beautiful sunset. I wish you the best in your quest for truth, because as far as I'm concerned, that is the most noble adventures to have!!

we say thanks to God in all situarion of good or bad... but most of the time we recall him when we are in bad situation that is the time we remember him and call him to help us... it is so kind of you to say thanks to God each day of your life and for all good things that has given you. you can find God just within yourself. thinking of how you born, who is removing the beautiful flowers by just a seed from the darkest of the soil? who has given you power to move to talk to see things to breath in and out? the movement of the clouds, rain, snow, sun which raise and set... if one day sun will not appear in the sky, which power can recall it to come back? you can see God in everything.. in movement of the wind between trees, fly of one bird.. in everything his sign is available for those who used to think and say thanks..

Yes, God does exist. Your first advantage is that you Question. To Question is the start on the journey to discovery. Your next advantage is that you seem to want to discover the real Truth rather than merely be satisfied with beliefs in books. The final thing needed is the hunger to know. How Hungry are you? I shall give you the starting point by which you can discover God. This does take much time and work on your part. Your journey has always been up to you not anyone else. Ready? In this time-based causal universe, God's actions can be seen. Further they can not be altered through the mere beliefs of mankind. Study God's actions. You will discover how God thinks, what God is doing with this world and so much more. This will open doors for you with new ideas and areas to discover. In time you will discover God. Unlike religious holy books, everything about God will always add up. Just as all the physics add up in this world, so does the people factor. It is more complex simply because there are many more variables. You should have a good starting point if you so choose. It is a Test of Intelligence. It is all up to you now. Feel fortunate for I had to discover the starting point on my own.

We don't know anymore than we know how about the Big Bang Theory. I do know that we are forms of energy and the energy flows where our attention goes. Faith is just something you have. You either believe it without question or not. I have my own beliefs where my faith lies. It doesn't mean I am right, but it also doesn't mean other people are right either. It's all a matter of perception.

I believe that Jesus the son of God is all real. There is no way that it can't be for then how did the world begin if there wasn't God. I believe because there have been to many things that have happened in my life both good and bad that there couldn't be a God. I believe there is because when trying to get out of the World Trade Center on 9/11 a voice spoke to me in my ear telling me "Janet you have to get out of the building" and she repeated it three times. When that happened I was in shock but knew for sure that it was my guardian angel sent by God to save me. Why others weren't saved you ask because it was their time to go.

to say philosophically it is very difficult to believe that god is existing because of several reasons one such is we haven't seen god but at the same time it is very difficult not to believe that god is existing because there are several things which are not under our control despite so much technological improvement so it all depends
