I believe in God

Maybe it’s synchronicity or syncopated rhythm, or something else entirely, I keep coming across arguments or discussions as to whether God exists or not. I believe in God. He/She/The Source has come through for me so many times, and certainly every day for the last two years. Here’s the bottom line: I am happier believing in God.

There are several films out. I enjoy theaters, but rarely go, waiting instead to watch at home. I saw this trailer today and it lifted me up. There are a couple of others, if only because they’ve got people talking about something other than the latest trendy thing.

  1. I have watched a few of these debates between atheists and deists, and unfortunately the atheists usually make mincemeat with them based on science. However, I think the deists are arguing from too restricted a viewpoint, and the atheists would be horrified to realise what restrictive blinkers they, too, are wearing. There can be a view of God which is proof against anything science or evolutionary evidence can offer.

    • I’m with you, Col. I think it’s science v. the Bible where the fight goes, whereas to my mind, science and the world around, above and inside us makes an excellent argument for the presence of God.

      • Exactly so! Back science into a corner on those aspects and they start bleating lamely about that is how the natural laws are, and that the start of the big bang was just a random accident. They can’t seem to get it into their thick skulls that the whole system of everything there is shouts ‘conscious purpose’. Or that by the very nature of spirit, you aren’t going to trap aspects relating to it in a bottle for examination.

  2. Belief in God is not based on science. It is based on faith and our willingness to have faith. I was told with certainty and science, I had cancer, from which I should have died. My faith led me to pray and ask God for help. A few months later when operated on, the MD, man of science, told me the tumor was gone. Plain and simple. So now I have both faith and science to prove to me an existence of God and His actions in my life. I would rather have faith and hope than to not have it. Regardless of what science tells me, I know what my heart tells me. Science has left me cold and without hope many times. The belief in my heart never has.

      • I always think of Job. People ask, why do bad things happen to good people? Why did this happen to me? I told you my mother was angry at my having cancer and I had to remind her of Job. Job was a good man – reverent, respectful, honorable. In a series of events, due to satan testing him, he lost everything – children, land, home, money, stature. Satan was trying to prove to God that if everything went to crap for Job instead of him being so blessed, he would renounce God. God didn’t think so. He knew Job’s heart. Well, finally, Job cracked. His life was beyond bad. He had boils, he had scabs, he stank, his wife was being a prime witch, his friends were saying he must have done something major to tick off God and God was punishing him. Job demanded of God why? he wanted to face God and ask him why? Well, God didn’t strike him dead. He brought him to heaven to talk. Job asked why? He had and was a good person. God asked him a series of questions: do you know when the wind will blow and in what direction? Do you know when the deer in season would give birth and what would be the issue (gender)? Did Job known when the great beast of the deep would rise for breath? and other things. Job had to admit he did not know. God said, No. You don’t. I know. I am God. I created you and the earth, heavens, oceans, and all in them. I know the number of hairs on your head. I knew you before you slept in your mother’s womb. I am God. You are not. there are some things beyond your understanding and things you will never know because.you.are.not.God. Humbled, Job was returned to earth. he did not renounce God. God understood he was angry and did not hold it against him. God still loved him and restored all he had lost, in the end. We can’t always get closure. Some things we have to take because of faith. God does not punish us or test us beyond our endurance. People who only deal with logic cannot understand and maybe never will. I respect their right to how they feel. I only ask the same in return. I only know for myself, that through faith, I am healed. By grace I am loved. I can only trust. God renews His love to us daily. Great is His faithfulness and love to us all.

          • And on a lighter note, with Newsboys beating out God’s not dead, go to you tube and pull up Newsboys – In Christ Alone…one of my most favorite songs. And a good point in the clip…Why are you angry at God? When my father died, I was so angry I hated God and turned away. One day, I’ll tell you about that. But God is not dead. God is.

  3. I am not a consistent believer but I have no problem saying,”I can’t NOT believe. Read the book, Heaven is for Real. Threw me. Made me think. I’d love to see all three movies. At least I’m glad they are being made. If not perfect, at least, the stories are food for thought.

  5. I think humans are just wired in believing is something, and it healthier to just beleive in something even if we don’t understand it. It doesn’t matter so much what it is, science it just unraveling the mysteries or how god works, ppl fool them into believing science disproves god some how, mean while god is in heaven having a jolly old chuckle πŸ˜„ I say find something you can believe in, and go with it. Anything is better than nothing.

    • Interesting viewpoint, Jamie: “Anything is better than nothing.”
      I will have to ponder that for a while. Thanks for giving me something to chew on.

    • Hi Jamie, thank you for coming in and sharing. I admit to a wee bit of confusion re second sentence, but overall I agree with you. Speaking for myself only, I have found my belief in a positive, benevolent God and Creator and Purpose – His and mine, has made me a better person and happier – I win both ways.

  6. I would like to believe there is a God & a few years ago I was certain of it, but now I’m a little more skeptical (although hopeful at the same time). BTW, all the reviews I have read about the movie Noah have been terrible – I have yet to find someone who liked the movie.

      • I was very tired and in pain at the time, so words didn’t come easy. For me, some of this is more than believe… it’s “know”. But I don’t profess my convictions a lot as I can’t stand mockery, to have something personal and special to me be subject to ridicule. So I tread fairly carefully. Even at awesome blogs like Kenneth “The Culture Monk” Justice’s, there have been conflicts once in a rare while 😦
