I beg to differ with you on this. Jesus is the only channel to the creator, and that's what it is.

They're fake gods, but my God is the God of them all.
hmmm
I am also a Christian so I wouldn't want to talk ill against Christ.
this is the same hypocritical attitude religion holds, who knows? Jesus might have thought something different.

if you read my thread in my age one. different religions started in different areas of the earth. everyone should be considered victims of life mystery and puzzle. each people made up a religion to help them learn about the creator. and the creator didn't kill anyone.

many stories in the Bible cannot be verified. but rather believed by faith.

I will open another thread about the creation story and you'll see clearly that it's only but a myth. except you choose to block your reasoning as always.

meanwhile, the creator knows humans are helpless, we didn't create ourselves. we didn't ask "adam" to eat fruit. how can we pay for sins of someone we don't even know?

if the creator can be so petty(i doubt) then I'd say we humans have better sense of judgement than him.


do not insult God

Hmmm... I really do not have strength for this.

Maybe you need to tell me where you actually stand.

It's really necessary. You have really been saying some contradictory stuff. Eg, you are also a Christian...you don't want to say ill of Christ...really? You also said Jesus might have taught something else... elucidate.

In fact, that post of yours is full of contradictions...and you say you're a Christian?

I need to know your stand, it will help me know how to reason your posts.

He has a philosophical view which doesnt mean his musings are true but they just make him ask more questions like a man wishing to ensure everything makes sense which is tantamount to him wanting to download all of God into his mind which is impossible. God cannot be rationalized and everything about Him cannot make sense in as much as we are not on the same level as He is.

Thats his dilemma

No one can ever understand God and the universe using the carnal mind. The world we see today came out of the supernatural. He can only have his doubts cleared, if only he yields to the Spirit of the living God. The Bible teaches us that the Holy Spirit will lead us into ALL TRUTH.

AngelsAndStars, can you remind us of your reason for believing that God exists? Is it just something in religion you can't bear to let go of?

Lmao. you funny.

we all apply faith my friend.

if i enter a church on sunday and shout "BOOOMBB" everybody go take off. even pastors. why? because no matter the faith we have its still never 100% sure. we are all victims of life's puzzle agree or not.

Where did you get the idea that it makes sense to just believe things by faith in the absence of evidence? (To me, it seems like a very bad idea)

Ogbeni , you can't say with certitude that God does not exist and that's faith . And Nature serves as evidence for God , rejecting it does not invalidate it .

then until science and evolution can tell us who created the "big bang" and what was before the big bang then i'll hang on to my God. and after that trust me more questions will come.

there's always going to be a junction where logic will go no further. and if anyone try to bring more claims there will be more questions. and more and more.

I presented my own view of the creation story https://www.nairaland.com/2305535/dealing-misconceptions-10-things-bible

The theistic evolutionists see the creation story as an allegory .

There are some that believe the 7 days are not 24-hour days .

So stanch your enthusiasm cos there's nothing new you'd say that has not been said before .

There is a time for evidence and there is a time for faith. Evidence stops at the door of spirituality because its not in control of that level but responds to whatever the spiritual wishes to provide as evidence. But that poses a problem for a mind which seems to think that it must have the kind of evidence it seeks but that would mean you have now taken control of the spiritual and that is impossible because you are beneath that realm as a human.

Like the OP says, only the dead can say for sure but Religion provides a hope and a little peek through a window at what is expected after death which in truth stands on a higher pedestal than hopelessness which is a place man is not designed to be and cannot even be comfortable being confined there. Its in our genes. We always want to move and explore and discover and believe that there is something or more out there and this is the vacuum being filled by Religion and i personally see this as extremely plausible and a much better option.

Evidence can never be absolute as what is deemed as evidence for one cannot work for another. Herein comes faith!
