    Nothing, because there’s no reason to.

    I believe there is one God who created the heavens and the earth.  There are many gods, who are not really a god, but want to be worshipped as a god.  There is a war in heaven, between good and evil.  God created the earth for humans, but the devil wants it for himself.  Even though humans are a weaker vessel, God put for them authority over the angels.  The devil didn't like that.  He deceived Adam and Eve and caused them to fall from God's grace.  So, the devil was kicked out of the third Heaven.  He now dwells in the second Heaven.  He comes in and out of the second heaven and the heaven over the earth.  He rules the earth for now.  Everyone is born into the darkness.  The darkness is the whole way of the world.  How it is run. Money is the key.  You can't do anything without money. Air is not even free.  The whole world is wicked.  If you want me to show you a physical God?  I can't.  He is spirit, so you can't see him. That's why it takes faith to find him.  When you don't believe in God, everything has to be proven by what you can see, touch or feel.  So, the world proves everything through the natural elements on the earth.  Scientifically.  Meanwhile, there is a spiritual world.  Everything happens in the spirit realm first then comes into the natural. God put it all into the natural, by bringing it in out of the spiritual. He bound it into time and space.  In the spiritual realm there is no time.  That's why in your dreams there is no time.   @OakTownA

    Thanks for your answer. Why do you believe that?
  • pamelajohnson1pamelajohnson1 187 Pts   -  
    Because I believe that everything did not come into existence by accident.  I believe that a brilliant mind created this world.  That mind is God. @OakTownA

    Why the Christian god?
  • pamelajohnson1pamelajohnson1 187 Pts   -  
    God came from his kingdom to our low form.  Because he put us in flesh.  The flesh is our downfall, because we want to please the flesh.  He is spirit.  He put a human spirit in us, so that we could communicate with him.  Then he did the greatest thing of all.  He (God) made himself low, low, like we are, and came in the flesh to show us how to live in this world and to be joined back to him. When he hung his flesh on the cross, that built a bridge for us not to have to sink into the spirit of death or hades when our flesh die. We could come right through to him. And it also meant that if we give up our pleasure-seeking life, and live a spirit fill life (which means to live a righteous life. No more intentional sin). Then he will transform our life little by little.   The thing is that when we live a Jesus lifestyle life, our life will become harder, because the devil will triple his attempts to cause us to fall into sin.@OakTownA

    You explained your version of Christianity, but you did not explain WHY you believe that. Why are you Christian and not Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Baha'i, etc?

    I did answer the question.  I don't know what you want me to say, but this is the reason.  He came to earth in the flesh. to show us and tell us the way and about his kingdom.@OakTownA

    And also, because I see truth in the bible.   In my daily life. In other people. In the actions of people.  I see things that the bible speaks of in this reality.@OakTownA

    @OakTownA it really is a bit out of the wall to ask atheists if they believe because your going to get the obvious answers because they get caught up on the belief word because they just don’t get it any way. They say that they believe things because of evidence but there just hypocrits because what say you go to a cafe and say well I’m going to have a a ham burger with double cheeze with smoked barbecue sauce and yellow penos and fries with chicken salt because the evidence is that the double cheeze counter acts the proteen in the meat and chicken salt is better because it supports the chicken industry. Well I say bollicks because in the end you get what you feel like in your guts or your heart and that’s what belief is all about any way.

    @OakTownA As a christian, its extremely difficult to explain. You can feel his specific presence, you can start to hear his voice in you, and you can begin to see his attempts to bring you towards his plan. No argument will ever be able to convince me God is false because I talked to him yesterday.

    That’s because you have a closed mind. Ask him next time the cure for cancer can you do that?

    I was Christian until my late teens. I never experienced anything like you stated, no matter how hard I prayed and looked. Did god respond to you? If so, how? How do you know it was god and not just your brain reacting to non-supernatural stimuli. We know what part of the brain is stimulated when a person has a religious experiences. Interestingly enough, it's the same area that is stimulated by sex and drugs. Neurologists were able to cause people to have "religious experiences" by running electricity through that part of the brain. A study also found that those who have had a life-changing religious experience have noticeably smaller hippocampus.

    Honestly, it would be difficult for us to have a debate on faith because faith is stupidly hard to explain and can be seen as laughable to those who don't have it. Those articles can be used by someone to prove God is false just as much as it can be used to show that God really is talking to us and the brain is reacting accordingly. The brain is not exactly the most well known part of the body. I really don't want that to come off as a deflect, were just don't have the knowledge of the brain necessary. As for what God usually communicates, he usually gives advice, tells me when I should be putting my focus on something specific, and sometimes answers a question I ask about the bible.

    For once you have made a cohesive, credible argument.

    Argument Topic: I believe in the Religion of Good and Evil

    My religion is based on hope and reasoning, it just makes sense to me for it to be true, but not only that, it's as non-judgemental as I can understand a religion being, there's good meaning in believing in it. But naturally, since my religion isn't well known like Christianity/Islam/Zoroastrianism/etc are, you probably don't know what it's about. If you wish to know more about it go here: https://www.reddit.com/r/proselytizing/comments/wncsoh/this_is_a_polytheism_religion_i_created_called/
