I believe in God for several reasons that would take too long to type out, but the main two reasons are 1) because I've experienced Him myself, and 2) life doesn't make sense without Him in the picture.

I'm not sure if evolution is true または not, and I honestly don't care. But I do know that science can only take あなた so far. It 回答 a lot of "how" questions, but not the "why" questions. That's where God comes in.

あなた could see evolution as a series of random, lucky coincidences and believe that this whole world somehow came together all によって itself. But then, what would be the point of everything? If we're merely evolved 動物 and the ultimate goal is surviving and evolving even more, then what about morality または the basic concepts of Right and Wrong? Are they relative, things that society just accepts as "right" and "wrong"? If so, what's the point? または are they absolute? If so, what makes them absolute?

Or, あなた could see evolution as the work of a Designer または Creator. Someone who's putting all the puzzle pieces together to form a bigger picture. Someone who has a greater purpose for each atom and molecule, every cell, every star, every life. Someone who laid down all the laws of science and the rules of humanity at the very beginning. Someone who wants us to find Him and know Him through the evidence in His handiwork. The shadow proves the sunshine. The creation proves the Creator.

And I think everyone at some point has experienced that strange, indescribable longing for something more, something greater than what we know...like you're homesick for a ホーム you've never known. That longing is a very deep part of who we all are as human beings, and pretending it isn't there won't make it go away. Needs and desires exist because there are things designed to fulfill them. Where there is hunger, there is food. Where there is thirst, there is water. Where there is loneliness, there is love. The fact that I long for something beyond what I see is yet もっと見る proof to me that He exists. Everyone has a God-shaped hole in their hearts, and only He can fill it.

C. S. Lewis, 作者 of The Chronicles of Narnia, talked about that a lot in his other books. He used to be a hard-core atheist, until God pwned him with his own logic. xD I highly recommend あなた check some of them out, especially Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters. Lewis was an expert in Christian apologetics, and he could explain everything to あなた better than I ever could. (No, I'm not expecting あなた to convert after 読書 them または anything lol. I just think you'd find them interesting.) ^__^

Thanks, this did help with my curiousity:) I actually have read some of C.S. Lewis in a book that was set up to be like a ディベート between him and Sigmund Freud. And that brings me around to コメント on this: "I think everyone at some point... things designed to fulfill them." This is where I believe the need for God stemmed from. I think that the child in us yearned for a parental figure, and God was imagined to fulfill that need. (Note that I am just sharing my own opinion, and that I do completely respect yours.) Well, thanks again=]

Well besides the fact that I was brought up believing He's real I have my own reasons aswell.

One of the big things for me is just the earth its self. I don't know about あなた but I've never known anyone who can make trees, flowers, mountains, fish, cows, etc. which leads me to believe that there is a higher being. I know most people will say "Evolution!" but evolution is nothing but hogwash. I mean seriously there was nothing then all of a sudden there was an electrical storm that generated certain atoms causing everything we have today.....now just think about that. It contradics its self! Evolutionist (aka;Darwinist) say that everything evolved well if that were true then when we started to transform from being a monkey we'd have to change extremely fast. Our bodies wouldn't be able to withstand all that physical and mental changes if we changed gradually...over time if あなた will. Something else Evolution teaches is that every land creature was once an ocean creature and that everything crawled up out the ocean and changed into whatever it was destined to be. If that were true we'd all have to have grown legs, lungs, ロスト our fins, ロスト our gills, and so many other things. Once again our bodies can't withstand that. We'd of either died または had to change very fast, but see according to evolution we changed gradually so thats another contridictory.

Creation and God actually makes sence. God has always been, He has never had a beginning and will never have an end. He spoke the world into exsistance along with the other plants and galaxies and so on an so forth. When God made the world He made it without sin but when the first woman and man sinned (Eve & Adam) God cast a curse on the earth and humans. But this was all according to God's plan, He knew man would sin when He put us here and He allowed so that His son ジーザス could come and save His people. And His people are anyone and everyone who believes on Him.

So hopefully this was a good answer and あなた got why I believe.( =

× I do see your point, sort of. What I don't understand is what あなた mean によって saying that our bodies wouldn't be able to withstand the changes of evolution. It's gradual enough that it took millions of years, so we wouldn't have noticed.

Well see say we all did crawl out the waters and develop lungs. We'd first have to lose our gills so that we could breathe on land. Loosing our gills and growing lungs according to evolution takes millions of years but if this changing of how we breathe really happened we'd have to change really fast as not to die from suffocation. あなた know what I mean? If some stages of our development didn't happen quickly we'd have died but according to evolution every stage of our development took thousands to millions of years.

i agree with abilie. evolution wouold not be likely without the existence of a スーパーナチュラル force to begin its process.

The reason why I believe in God and His Son ジーザス Christ is that I want to be saved when I die または the end of the world comes. And I've experienced some paranormal things, like filled with Holy Spirit, have seen dreams where God is with me 表示中 things that might happen in near future and He answered in my 質問 about my daydream what I'm dreaming even now.

I grew up going to church. As that strong foundation settled within me I realized that all that I learned is true. The truth of the 愛 of God is deep within the believers. It's kinda hard to explain. A deepness that goes to and embeds itself into ones soul/spirit. I have no doubt that God is real! Another thought; just look around you...what do あなた see? Trees, flowers, insects, animals, billions of different living things. How did they get here? From one organism that came out of the sea? I think not! For those who do not believe I feel sadness for them. The most important thing is that あなた will be judge によって God in the end. If あなた do not believe, do think He will let あなた go to Heaven? And another thought, without God what hope do あなた have? Why go through this hard life knowing that there is nothing after the death of our bodies.
I almost forgot to say that one special 日 I was touched によって God. There is no words in the human language to express the feeling! I have no doubt of Almighty loving God ♥
