|GOD Does Not Make Sense. by Toks2008(m): 8:58pm On Aug 17, 2017|
Oh YES you read right; the existence of God and all there is about him does not make any sense and no matter how hard we try to explain anything about him, he will never make any sense to the human minds.
It is very easy for people to blame atheists that they don't believe there is God but can you explain how some sort of spirit called GOD came from nowhere,
created the world and everything in it. Don't you think it is foolishness for anyone to believe this unfounded story?
Who is he?,where did he come from?, where did he get his power? why is he immortal?, why should I believe in him or worship him? what ype of creator creates a world in which people as well as innocent children die in floods, starve to death, perish in agony from TB and malaria?
What kind of God allows people who worship and adore him to be murdered, raped, tortured and come to countless other hideous ends?...the questions are endless and because there are no logical answers to these questions,Athiests concluded that GOD does not exist because everything about him is hard to comprehend.
But you know what?,these same reasons why athiest believe he neither exists nor makes sense is the same reason I have personally made up my mind to believe he exists cos I read somewhere in the Christian bible that anyone who believes in him and in Jesus, will get to know him in a new world he created for those who believe in him to live forever after they leave this world.Death is one fact i believe in but what happens after i die I do not know...
I have asked myself some thought provoking questions like;
-Could there really be a mysterious creator somewhere?
-How did the planets form when the atheists postulation of a big bang explosion all of a sudden happen? After all, you don’t see round objects form when something blows up.
-Why do we not see frogs turn into birds or humans turn to other higher form of animals for thousands of years if evolution is real?
-And with reference to why GOD allows death and suffering for his creations,I tend to ponder...Can this world sustain every living specie that ever existed if there is no extinction of the previous ones? is it not expedient that there should be a balance in the number of new species that come into the world and those that leave hence the need for death to happen through one way or the other be it sickness,natural disasters or man error?and according to a school of thought,it is believed that God is more interested in the soul and spirit of the human species(his creation) that never dies and that the physical body is doomed to die on earth as it is written in the Christian bible (For it is appointed unto men TO DIE ONCE and after that the judgement...Hebrews 9:27)
-What exactly will it cost me to believe in GOD?, absolutely nothing.
-If i believe in him and discover he does not exist after I die,I have nothing to lose but if indeed he exists then I will have so much to gain cos i will see him and also have that opportunity to ask him many questions and some of the mysteries that make him GOD will be revealed to me.
I strongly believe that as long as we try to reason him with our human minds,He will never make sense to us cos as they say,he is the unfathomable GOD and I am curious to know why he is who he is.
◄ 1 Corinthians 1:25
"For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength."
◄ Revelation 22:4
"They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads."

Did you read his post to the end or you just read the title and concluded?
|Re: GOD Does Not Make Sense. by bennyann: 9:09pm On Aug 17, 2017|
That's good bro. I like the op because I understand it and where it's driving at.
But I believe every person should have a personal evidence or conviction for their beliefs. Because I feel if one should just believe for believing sake, that one may not last long in his belief especially when there's a storm
Personal evidences or convictions most times don't make sense to others but what matters is they act like an anchor to the individual with the experience.
We've all been given a seed for salvation. Where have we planted them? On the rocky soil, thorny places or good soil?
May God help us to keep our salvation and also bear much fruits alongside. Amen!

Just like several other nairalanders, they read titles and they make comments without bothering to read the write up....so sad.
|Re: GOD Does Not Make Sense. by Toks2008(m): 9:15pm On Aug 17, 2017|
Lalasticlala,mynd44,Seun, I don't know if this is good enough for Fpage.
|Re: GOD Does Not Make Sense. by adepeter2027(m): 9:29pm On Aug 17, 2017|
It's been a while moi comment. Same old sh!t always.
How do you explain the fact that God created everything but he himself wasn't created?
How do you explain the fact PLASMODIUM is the causative agent for malaria?
How do you explain the fact that HIV was was suspected to be G.R.I.D?
Don't you think it is foolishness for anyone to believe this unfounded story?
Don't you think it's most foolish of anyone to assert everything must have a creator but the creator don't have a creator that created it?
Don't you think it's foolish to say "GOD" instead of responding "I DON'T KNOW"?
This is why I now believe there is GOD and I encourage everyone reading this to also do same because as long as we try to reason him with our human minds,He will never make sense to us cos he is the unfathomable GOD.@bold is my problem with religious people.
Cos he's unfathomable, then he's god àbí?

Very sad indeed and that's why they most times jump into a wrong conclusion. When i saw the title, i was moved to read to the end before concluding.

OtemAtum:Watch how Lalasticlal-a push the damn trash to FP to move yahweh's ministry

When 'it' happens as is prophesied, the only word on your lips will be 'GOD'!
|Re: GOD Does Not Make Sense. by OtemAtum: 7:51am On Aug 18, 2017|
What if you are a part of God and you don't know it? What if God is actually the sum of everything and there is no God in isolation?
You+me+Op+solar systems+galaxies+air+the gods+....+everything=God.

|Re: GOD Does Not Make Sense. by KingEbukasBlog(m): 9:51am On Aug 18, 2017|
Yes God is unfathomable , inscrutable but the questions you asked here sir can be answered .
Question : Where does God come from ?
Answer : God is not confined to a particular location or have a beginning or a source for you to ask where It came from . God is eternal , having no source or beginning .
Question : Where did God get His power ?
Answer : Since God is eternal , having no beginning , Its attributes have always been with It . Its omnipotence or enormous power has always been with It , It didnt get it from anywhere .
Question : Why is God immortal ?
Answer : God is immortal because It is immutable , death is an experience for mutable/material things which are susceptible to change . Death is a type of change and an immutable being as God is impervious to it .
Question : Why should you believe in It and worship It ?
Answer : God is a Necessary Being , without God nothing would exist . Due this fact , we owe our existence to God as contingent beings . Only such a being is worthy of worship and adoration . We should believe and trust in It because It is the epitome of moral perfection . God can do no wrong , a being that can do no wrong , perfect and infallible , is worthy of being of trusted .
