I'm reading a book called One Heartbeat Away - your journey into eternity-. It's a fantastic book. Written about the idea and concept of GOD and looking at eviedence to prove or disprove His existence. Though I've just started the book makes so many excellent points...
The guy starts out by saying that the choices we make every SECOND are so important because our heart beats 100,000 times a day...but for each beat there is NO promise that one will follow and each one could be the last. So when faced with you belief and religion you need to know what you believe and what you don't and you need to make sure that belief is the right belief. It really is a scary thought without GOD and Heaven. What do you believe?
I know in my mind I’m asking how you can not believe in GOD. I know that some people would look at me and say how can you believe in GOD? I have an answer it's real and true to me and I wouldn't have to hesitate and try to come up with an answer that I would stumble all over. What about you. And I hate the "Life is just not that easy" excuse. I didn't have and easy life. My dad left when I was 2, I was abused and raped as a child, I suffered from depression, and I've lost so many of the best friends in life. So that excuse isn’t going to cut it.
When it comes down to it what do you have to lose? How wrong could the idea of GOD and Heaven be? It’s HOPE. Hope in something better than nothing. So what if we’re wrong so what if you think there is nothing after this. I’d like to believe you’re wrong. I’d like to believe there is a whole new better life for me. A life without suffering. Can you honestly say my belief is BAD? I don’t see the harm. Even if you call it false hope if I die I’d never know. So I’d like to spend my life living for everything instead of living for nothing.
All things point to His existence. Just look at the world around you. The sunset so beautifully painted up in the sky; it had to have had a painter. The people had to have a creator, a molder if you will. The perfect conditions for us to even exist; don’t you think that required a highly knowledgeable designer? It wasn’t just by random chance that we’re here. We’re not an “accident” no magic was required. Just love and patience and who is a better example of love and patience other than our LORD and Savior? It just far too complicated of a world to have come together by chance.
