So many people say this about religion. "If there's a god, how could he let all the evil in the world exist? How could he allow rape and murder, and children to starve to death?"
Two simple answers. One, God believes in free will. He does not make people into mindless zombies, he allows them to make their own choices, he gives us the freedom to choose either right, or wrong. He does this so he can find out who is genuinely good and evil. This explains people like hitler, ted ... read more
I think that God loves me more and more, over time. We have a relationship to build but I appreciate him much more than I used to. I call it a him just cause that's what I am used to but God feels more like an it. Like a spiritual energy and a force for good. I believe in him more and more, and I have come to rely on him more too. I want him in my life. He is not my parents anymore. He is not human but he is a friend, better than they are. I am relying on him more. I guess th... read more
Ah religion, what would we do without you......
- Oklahoma lawmaker defends anti-abortion bill, says rape and incest are ‘will of God’
- Mother brutally assaulted daughter for reciting Bible verses incorrectly
- Imam calling for Jews to be killed in sermon at Montreal mosque
- London attacker 'converted to Islam'
People have trouble accepting time tested physics but they are perfectly okay accepting the possibility of a humanoid creator.
That absolutely boggles my mind. How can they so easily accept the idea of a god, but when actually observed science enters the arena, they become skeptical? Don't get me wrong, it's good to have a healthy skepticism everywhere. What I'm talking about in particular is how easily the religious can dilute themselves in cognitive dissonance and bias.
So, last night I was having a serious talk with my mom and we ended up discussing about God and stuff like that, and then when I was going to bed, this random dude texted me (wrong number) something from the bible and I was like ???????? is this Jesus trying to hit me up or something????
Idk it was pretty neat. Sorry Satan, I'm taken
My life is so blessed. I am so blessed. Most people will find something wrong with their life. I don't find anything. I am truly happy. The only problem is other people. It really hurts me to see others hurting. My teacher walked in on her husband committing adultery, and now he won't let her see the kids. It is things like this that hurt. To read all of your problems on here, hurts. Is m so sorry for all that horrible stuff that Has happened in your life. I really hope that ... read more
I think challenges really destroy my enthusiasm for faith and belief in God. Why should I have any challenges to deal with? My life is hard enough and I think things are not fair. I think God abandons me or has abandoned me. I'm mad at God about my childhood and the things I had to go through. I'm still knowing he exists but I'm still angry at him for putting me through that or for letting me go through that. Where is he and why isn't he here making me feel better? I thought ... read more
you guys. I'm going to church tomorrow. but I'm terrified. when I think about it, it's because I never felt like I really belonged there. Idk, it just always felt like I was being judged? Like they didn't like me, and I didn't know how to talk to them? It's been a couple of years, and it's just...idk, I have this ball of dread in my stomach. I don't really want to see anyone there that I know. But I know they'll be there, bc it's a small community, and everyone that was there... read more
