From my previous post it is pretty much obvious that everyone believes things because that is what they want to believe. No one believes for any definitive reason… it simply feels right, or it seems reasonable, or simply personal experience, but let’s use their own words…
I believe because that is my inclination.
I usually find my way back to a place of understanding and faith in God — even if I can’t prove God exists.
I believe because in my heart I know it to be true.
I believe because I have personal experience of God that has transformed my life…
I also believe based on the ontological argument – God exists because we have a need for Him.
I believe what I believe. Anything, anyone says to me will never get me to change what I believe.
I believe because I am a part of the elect. I did nothing and deserve nothing but was given everything.
I believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob revealed in Jesus who lived, died and rose again and presence is here for all who believe today…. You cannot put faith or God under a microscope.
I believe in God because I know Him personally. I talk to Him and He talks to me back.
You can read the rest of the comments but from where I sit there is no definitive reason to believe based on any of the Christian testimonies below. What do Christians believe and why do they believe it? All the Christians seem pretty damned confused from where I sit…
Stupid Church People.
But let me just say this… I believe in Santa Claus. Why? Because my parents told me he is real, he brings me presents and he makes me happy… it’s hard to explain but Santa makes my life better.
