I believe in god. I simply feel that god is real, it feels like god exists. I believe that god is more of a consience then some other, higher being. I don't believe in miricals, just luck and people over reacting and not understanding the situwation.

I do believe in God, and I believe that he brought us here and created us according to his plans. He made this crazy world we have now, and he will bring it to an end when he feels time's right. I believe in God, Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. I believe that it just wasn't life that brought me here on Earth, I think it was God.

Yes I believe in God I know he exists. Every person who has tried to prove the bible wrong they have became believers themselves.

I have NO DOUBT IN MY MIND that GOD IS REAL, but I DO NOT believe in making every one CH.RISTIA.N. It should be YOU CHOICE if you want to FOLLOW HIM OR NOT.

I think that God exists, but he just plays favorites and looks from afar. I think God is imperfect, but is real

i grew up believing god but i stopped, god has never helped me before, he doesnt stop bad people from killing, from hurting each other, they preach about us being perfect but if he was real and wanted us perfect wouldnt we be? to me it doesnt really matter if hes real or not, its not like hes ever helped me in anyway, no matter how good i am, how much i prayed, how many times i go to church, he never protected me, he could be real or fake for all i know but he certaintly isnt helping me

God is the most important part of my life. I'd be lost (literally) without Him. I am Christian, because with all other belief systems there is confusion and uncertainty. But once you understand God's Word and His reason for creating you, all things will be revealed (with continued diligent study, of course).

There are many who wonder how there could possibly be a loving God if there is so much despair and hatred in the world. For thousands of years men and women, even Jesus as he was crucified, have cried: "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46). His answer: "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee," (Hebrews 13:5). God has given us hope through Jesus. Hope of eternal life and happiness: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life," (John 3:16).

Rely on God's promise and strength, especially through troublous times: "Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually," (1 Chronicles 16:11).

"Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven," (Matthew 5:12). And heaven won't be fluffy clouds and harps. It will be a glorious fulfillment of God's original plan for all humans to be sinless and live eternally on a New Earth in concordance with God's will.

"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you," (James 4:7).

NeverBroken: I am truly sorry that you do not see God in your life. I just think you need to look further. God doesn't prevent bad things from happening because our free will brings these things on. And God does not automatically make everyone be perfect, again, because of our free will. God created us to love Him and to be loved by Him, but if He didn't give us the freedom to choose Him, what kind of love would that be? And if God wasn't working in your life, quite honestly you would cease to exist. Look at the little things in life and also look at the miracles. God is there for you. Let me know if you have any other questions!!

That's what my science teachers said too. Yes, I think I believe in God. I'm a Catholic, however, and sometimes it just seems so far-fetched, and "like ancient history!" (quote from one of the "less cheesy" websites {still very cheesy} that my religion teacher had us use, and so we make fun of it). I feel like he sometimes answers my prayers, but right now, I honestly don't know.

Undecided. I question everything and when I question the church, they get angry. They just expect me to believe in everything they tell me. Science on the other hand, has facts to back up everything. They can answer my questions without getting angry, and encourage more questions. Science makes sense the bible doesnt.

Yes, I do. Just look around and see everything, and ask yourself: How can this come on its own? How can this whole universe be made to a point of perfection? And look at outer space. Who makes the planets stay in orbit? 
And He is also a constant reminder that you are never alone, and He is the All-Forgiving, and He sees all that we do. Who else do we go to when we feel like we want to scream from frustration and pain? Who else do I go to to stay away from drowning in depression? 
And you cant just think that we are just there. We are creatures created by God. We have a purpose in life. We also have an afterlife, for we cannot be created and live a full life and then disappear. Then, when would justice prevail?
So those are my thoughts. I am a beleiver. (Oh, and a Muslim. Just thought you might want to know).
