how can you believe in something you dont completely understand?

Faith. It wouldn't be much of a test if God came out and proved to the world he existed then explained all of the divine mysteries.

good point dstates...

Something I was wondering, god supposedly gives us the choice love him or not right?
Well using his big almighty mind, shouldn't god have realized that some people wouldn't have that choice as they may not know he exists? Then they die and its like 'oh man, I wish I new about this god guy, now i have to burn in hell'

...which is exactly why he tests faith. They choose not to beleive in him. The choice not to love him goes along with that

"We are in no other way superior to other animals.

If we are, name one."

Err, all...of them...I can't understand how or why for that matter you want to put yourself equal to that of an animal.

If creations through evolution is true, then why was the human the only 'animal' to have a superior brain? Why was the human the only one that can talk?


"Oh, and what if God isn't Human? Does that make us superior?"

God isn't human...I actually somewhat believe that their are aliens out there in the galaxy.



"Another question. Could God make a stone so heavy that he wouldn't be able to lift it?"

This is just a paradox past our logic as humans. You might as well just ask the question, 'What would happen if an unstoppable force came into contact with an immovable object?'

God isn't the only thing past our logic as humans.


"how can you believe in something you dont completely understand?"

How can you?

But good answer by Quan-Chi...faith.


"but why test? that just leaves room for struggle and destruction."

What kind of world would we live in if we knew all the answers?


"Something I was wondering, god supposedly gives us the choice love him or not right?
Well using his big almighty mind, shouldn't god have realized that some people wouldn't have that choice as they may not know he exists? Then they die and its like 'oh man, I wish I new about this god guy, now i have to burn in hell'"

You're not going to go to Hell for not knowing about God. That wouldn't be a very loving and merciful God as He truly is. But what about those who do know Him...like you?


P.S Thanks Quan-Chi...I've been alone in these past debates for a while now.
