Lets talk about GODSubmitted by Ben Parish on Fri, 06/01/2012 - 05:34
Some believe - others dont. I believe in logic, reason:
I believe in God based on cause and effect, but I accept that I cannot come to believe something that I have not witnessed - something that holds no facts.
While I will never be able to say honestly that I believe that Jesus is the son of God, I will also never be able to say that Jesus is not the son of God, because I just dont know. This goes for all religions. I have humbled myself enough to be able to admit that I just do not know. I do, however, try to see the world through the eyes of Jesus. Jesus of compassion, of honor, of love... as I'm sure that I try to see the world through the eyes of other prominent 'prophets', to one degree or another.
Though, all in all, my belief system is not based on a book writen thousands of years ago, or even hundreds of years ago; my belief system is based on liberty, on love and on peace. Things that I've deemed righteous - through logic, reason.
If GOD is as righteous as religions make GOD out to be, then GOD would be enthusiastically understanding, anyways. And if there is a heaven - then GOD would not be justified to leave me out... as opposed to who? Someone just because they were able to buy into a farytale over someone that wasn't? Thats not justice. And if that is GOD's position... then GOD is no better than me. Why should GOD be there.
