A: Everyone who follows a religion other than one of the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) believes in other gods or spirits but does not believe in the Abrah…amic God. These would include followers of Hinduism, Daoism, Shintoism and other religions, as well as most Buddhists. Also, atheists do not believe in God. It could also be said that agnostics do not believe in God, because they do not know whether he exists. Atheists do not believe in god. I would add that agnostics also do not believe in a deity. Some may argue that agnostics don't belong on the list, since they really are doubtful about the existence of a deity, and if a deity exists she/he can't be known by us. My argument is that to 'believe in' a deity is actually to trust that deity, and not just acknowledge the deity's existence. So in traditional belief systems Satan believes that the deity exists, but you wouldn't say that Satan 'believes in' god. Satan believes that a deity exists, but Satan 'believes in' himself.
Because it's comforting and brings hope to a hopeless situation. Because he is our creator and the savor.
Generally speaking, communists are atheists because communists believe in what is called a "Material History", as described by Karl Marx. This version of history sees mate…rial wealth as the central driver of history. So a rough depiction of what history has been in the eyes of a communist would be this: 1. Slavery (small number of people reap wealth with a large number of people owned and doing most of the work; an example would be ancient Greece, where captured enemy soldiers were slaves) 2. Feudalism (nobles own the land, and serfs are tied to the land; the serfs would have to give a certain percentage of their income to the nobility) 3. Capitalism (a small number of indivduals own the "means of production" - factories, investment capital, etc - while a large number are employed by them for the least amount possible) This view of history led Marx to believe that at each stage the "underclass" was being relied upon to do more and more complex work and would have to become more and more educated. Eventually they would realize they are being subjugated and would revolt, leading to the "Worker's Paradise" (Marx's family owned many factories in Germany and the conditions of the workers left a profound impact on Marx). Because this version of history seems divorced from a history in which God intervenes on Man's behalf, and because Marx viewed religion as oftentimes being used by elites to keep the people from realising the reality of their condition, Marx called religion the "opiate of the masses" and most communists agree with him. Of course, as with any ideology, it is always different based upon the time and the place so it is difficult to say all communists are atheists. Christian Socialism is a form of soft communism which is not atheistic. But, in generaly, Marxist ideology embraces atheism. Additionally, a true Marxist embraces Dialectical Materialism. The human mind is not "soul driven" . The ideas of humans are based on Marx's belief that the brain secretes thought. This is contrary to the belief in a Creator.
The main goal is to use your talents for others, not self gain. What one must do is reconginze their talents, know that their talents are not their own but gifts from God, and… utilize those talents to spread the Good News and help others in their spiritual journey. Two ways believers may use their talents is to, if you are a good public speaker, write speech's protesting wrongdoings, preaching Jesus's teachings, or leading small groups in seminars. If you are talented with music, you could join a choir or play piano for your church or even be a part of a church band. Your talents can be used in many ways, but really what you want to do is utilize them and not take too much pride in them. Listen to God, pray, and use your talents to do His work.
Yes, he's Roman Catholic.
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor lan…guage, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. (Psalms 19:1-4) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (Romans 1:20-22) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:7-10) GOD BLESS YOU ! No personally I do not believe in God. I believe in the facts, and though the facts do not say that there is not a God, the facts still do not say there is a God. The facts lean more towards science being correct with several theories, for example, the big bang theory; which is the most widely accepted theory about the start of the universe, which is why I am an Atheist.
Those who do believe in God also believe that we were created with free will to either believe in God or not. Humanity is not forced to accept God's existence.
Believing in the presence of an omnipresent deity (such as the Christian God) who sees everything you do and every thought you think would be the equivalent of having a CCTV o…n you every second of every day from work to washroom breaks. Since the same deity is constantly putting gold stars or black marks on the ledger of your life - aiming you at eternal reward or damnation - there would be a tendency to try and "fake him out" to give you more gold stars and get the reward not punishment. The outcome would be that you would live a life as you think it should be, not as you want, regardless of what you felt. Answer: If you don't believe in God, you do things or behave based on what you want, what you want to believe is good and bad. If you believe in God, you do things or behave in obedience to Gods law found in the scriptures. If you truly believe in God, you want to behave according to Gods law.
beliveing god is just beliveing but beliving in god is better
No, you do not have to believe in miracles to believe in God. Some of America's Founding Fathers were deists. Deists believe that the creator God, having created the world, ta…kes no further interest in his creation and performs no miracles. Of course, the fact that miracles do not really happen is more naturally aligned with a belief that there is no God at all.
How do you Not? Have you seen some of the Natural wonders of the World? How do you explain it? The "Big Bang Theory"? How did the "Big Bang" happen? I say God created and …made it all happen. You just have to know and trust. Read the bible regularly. It really helped me. I was doubting that there was a god but I started reading the Bible and it really opened my eyes. Also: If you diligently seek God, God will make Himself known to you. Yes read the Bible. We come to God in faith. It is not a blind faith, it is faith in God who is revealed to us in the Bible. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Absulutley ANYONE can believe in God or Jesus Christ the son of God. It is up to thy person to believe what has been done. Christians, Mormons and catholics can all belive in …God or anyone else for that matter. Well lots of people believe in "God".
yes because he created everything and he sent his son to die for us and gave him life again so now if we love him trust him and believe him you wil go to heaven No. because t…here is concrete facts and evidence of science and astronomy that say otherwise. I am an atheist. If you do believe god can be real or fake, but there is no proof saying otherwise, you are an Agnostic.
Opinions from our Contributors: Because there are many different religions and not every religion follows God. People do not believe in a god for many rea…sons. Often it is as the result of a long period of examination of existing "proofs", discussions and study. They have studied religious texts and found them lacking in proof and full of illogic observations of the world indicate no control or guidance from a supernatural being Science provides a better worldview than religion Logical reviews of the abilities of any supposed god are not supported by observations The arguments for the existence of a god by "authorities" are often fallacious Observations indicate people with or without a belief in a god are equally happy Corruption among the godly is at least as prevalent as among the secular Some people are just contrary or base their public life positions on shock value. Some philosophies (Buddhism, Taoism, etc.) do not have a need for god(s) in their belief system Some people don't see a need to care about or believe in god(s) or any religious practices Some people have researched the issue and concluded that there is no evidence supporting the existence of any supernatural realm of god(s) People from non-theist families have never cared to consider the existence of god(s) as it was not important to their life Some people belong to religions with a different god or god(s) and would not believe in the questioner's specific God. In addition it should be noted that belief in a god is not the same as belief in any particular god that others support. Neither does belief in a god translate into any desire to worship, obey, love, follow the rules or care about the existence of that god. I believe that that people deny God on the basis of convenience; if there is no God than there is no such thing as truth or as moral laws. A person's denial of God allows them to do whatever they want. I also believe people don't want to be accountable for what they do. Non-believers are non-believers because they believe that the evidence most strongly supports a view that God does not exist. This has nothing to do with mocking God, in fact atheists seem to be more tolerant of Christians than many Christians are of atheists. As for me, I studied the Bible carefully, reading much of it several times, and find in it much to prove the non-existence of God. The following is not in itself proof, but I refer you to Ecclesiastes 9:5: "For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten." If the Bible is literally true and Ecclesiastes is a legitimate book of the Bible, this should be a troubling statement for believers. No verifiable and replicable proofs. "Absence of Evidence is Evidence of Absence." However, your wordings (believe) is correct. "Beliefs only requires faith. Facts require proofs. The reason why some people don't believe in God is mainly because of all the inconsistencies and falsehoods perceived in religious scriptures. Some religious leaders have used their dogma to oppress, victimize and terrorize those who refuse to subscribe to their particular brand of religion. Jesus and John the Baptist were classic victims of tyrannical bigotry from greedy selfish religious charlatans. Religion seems to have had more to do with human selfishness and greed than with righteousness, piety, compassion and spirituality. Certain apparently evil, vicious, and greedy individuals enjoy success and prosperity from the exploitation of the weak. But some individuals are fooled with false promises of a paradise called Heaven, which can only be accessed after death. Because they believe that it is rational to live their lives normally and without "supernatural" interference. Many people use "rational" as the reason for not believing. A creator god doesn't exist. I'm as certain of that as I'm as certain that any unfalsifiable concepts (like unicorns, elves, Santa, other gods, and centaurs) do not exist. Just because it cannot be disproven that a creator god exists (which is a logical fallacy of proving a negative), doesn't mean that God exists by default. It's the same way with unicorns. Just because I can't prove they don't exist doesn't mean they do. And it's not because atheists "don't want" God to exist, it isn't an ego thing, and it isn't a "hoped-for" thing. It's an empirical thing. It's accepting reality and refusing to substitute the hoped-for for the actual. Faith is willful ignorance. That's all it is. It's belief without evidence, even without reason. People don't believe in a god because there is none. It's like being in philosophy class and you're asked to write a 5-page proof on "Prove that chair doesn't exist." Peers are going on and on for 5 pages, when really, the only answer is "What chair?" If someone is raised in a household where God is never discussed or mentioned, it can be very hard to suddenly accept a new way of thinking, no matter who you are. Also, Religion is based on Faith, which is not a material object. You can't see it, touch it, measure it, hear it or feel it. For people who are used to the term "seeing is believing" meaning they must physically see things to believe they exist, faith can be quite a hard concept to understand! To answer the question of why people do not believe in God, first you must define which God? Vishnu, Mithras, Jupiter, Thor, Ra, Quetzalcoatl etc. It is a safe assumption that most people do not believe in one of the Gods mentioned above. Each one of those Gods had or have many that believe in them, their stories or mythology. They believe so with their hearts and minds, and they just know they are correct. Many do not believe in one set of stories, but believe in their own 'God's' mythology. We believe what society wants us to believe and what we are introduced to. This is seen in India, where most people believe in Vishnu but not Thor, Zeus or Yahweh. In the West, most people are the opposite, they believe in Yahweh or Jesus Christ as their God and not Vishnu, and the other religions are thought to be wrong. The belief in God means you have to believe in the supernatural. Atheists specifically do not believe in the supernatural so they therefore do not believe in any God. Agnostics believe it is impossible to prove that there is a God (there is no scientific evidence of any God, let alone one particular God) but they also know it's difficult to say there isn't a God since there is likely unprovable, so they just say it's unknowable. They cite the lack of any evidence. They think evidence has to support the theory that God exists. There are many reasons depending on the individual, of course. First and foremost, many people do not need a belief in gods to be good. They take responsibility for themselves and direct their own lives. They know that god-stories grew from the first attempts by humans to answer questions that we now know the answers to. We are all born atheists. Religious belief is a learned behavior. In order to believe in gods a person must have an unquestioning belief in something as being true in the complete absence of proof. Many people simply do not think that way. They reject a dependence on faith in anything for which we have no proof. They lead ethical lives based on natural, inborn moral standards. True non-believers know that moral behavior is an inherent part of the human condition and does not only spring from a belief in gods. There are good and bad believers, and good and bad non-believers. It is absurd to believe that moral behavior can only be derived from a belief in "God". There are a billion people on this planet who don't believe in "God" and who do not need any religious doctrine or clergy to tell them what not to do. Historically, organized religions have induced fear, hate, hostility, ignorance and prejudice for those outside the parameters of their teachings. It may be that some people do not believe in God so they can do whatever they want basically. Some people may be influenced by non-believers or may oppress other people with threats, fear, death, etc. Because they are rational. Because a god does not exist. Because most people do not require religious constraints to be valuable members of society. They rely instead on the human conscience, law enforcement, social impressions, etc. all work to prevent a person from doing whatever they want and it is obvious that it is among the religious where threats of death are more prevalent. You are more likely to be killed by a believer for not believing than a non-believer for believing. As president of the atheist student organization at my university I would say that a typical reason for non-belief is lack of evidence. There are a lot of arguments for god, but I have yet to find any of them persuasive. There just doesn't seem to be any (observable, testable, repeatable) sign of a personal god that can't be more reasonably explained by natural means (which are observable, testable and repeatable). Well, people don't believe in the existence of god for many reasons, A) Even if he's real, there's no proof supporting that, B) There is little chance that any religion chosen by them would be accurate as there are infinite gods in the human culture, C) If you're god is real, we were still born atheists, because at birth we don't even have the ability to control our motor functions, we're not smart enough, we certainly not smart enough to think 'there is a God,' D) All religions I have come across have been contradicted in one or another by a fact, and all have some bloody skeletons in the closet. Let's take for example, Christianity, if you read, and fully comprehend everything the Bible says, then there are many horrific stories of infanticide, genocide, rape, God commanded infanticide, and genocide, and of course, sacrificial killings. All people are born atheists. Those who are raised without any religion often stay that way. Personal strife may sway some people to seek answers in the supernatural. They find comfort in a church community where they are taught about god. These are religious conversions, but they are in the minority. Most people who believe in god do so because they were taught to when they were very young. They do not know life without their belief. The church encourages this indoctrination by use of various rites of passage -- baptism, bar mitzvah, etc. Some people who believe in god give up their belief when they begin to use reason and question religious texts. They soon learn that they have been believing in ancient superstitions perpetuated by modern churches while the rest of the modern world embraces science and reality.
There is a difference between self-confidence and lying to yourself. Self-confidence is a good thing, but lying to yourself is not. Believing in yourself to be the best you ca…n be is a good thing as well... but don't lie to yourself and tell yourself that you can do it all, because you can't. There comes a point where we need help, and that help could come from God. He wants to help you, but you just need to ask.
Yes, he's catholic. Like his big brother Gerard Way.
