Does God want me to believe?
    #1519220 - 05/04/03 12:48 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Two questions for those who know:

One, does God want me to believe in him?

Two, does he understand me perfectly, how I "work"?


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

"One, does God want me to believe in him?

-----------------

I think the general concensus is that "God" wants you to be aware that there is more out there... To give you something to look forwrad to.

In the end... SEEING IS BELIEVING !


In terms of understanding... Simply looking at the fact that Existence goes beyond human understanding, to me anyways, means that all the rules and nuances involved in "human" is completely understood! - In impeccable detail !

Dei Gratia de integro,

People tend to forget a very important #3: Does He exist?

I can answer that (to myself, anyway) if i get answers to the first two questions, so there is no need for me to ask if he exists - no one can prove it to me.  :smirk: 

Edit: I should have said, I can come closer to an answer.

No one can prove to you any answers to the other questions either.. heh I'll stay out

Is it possible, in your opinion, to "know" God, yet not believe in him?

God is dead and noone cares. If there is a hell, I'll see you there. -NIN

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

I don't think you can know God. God implies something so vast and infinite that there is no way that you can really 'know' God. Even the most spiritually connected, priests, monks, schizos, whatever, are interpreting something. But they themselves don't understand it. I think it's arrogant and ego satisfying to claim a connection to something so unconnectable. Whatever makes people feel better, though, right? People need a reason to live.

God is consciousness, creation, life. It exists in all things, we are all a part of it. Consciousness is evidence of God.

I agree with Shroomism. Consciousness radiates through everything, living or not. Life is that consciousness trying to become aware of itself. God is that unifying factor, consciousness, the reason behind creation or the "creator" if you so please. My take on it anyways. :grin:

1) God doesn't want everything. So no. Unless you want to believe in God. Then I would say that God does want you to believe in him.

2) YES
