Is God real?
Dquiggs99

Yes, God is real. We will be debating if there is a God. Let me start by saying, If God wasn't real how did the world start? Scientist say evolution, well lets be realistic. Everything has to come from some where. In order for the big bang theory to of happened, there would of have to of been some things created already. Well how were these things created? did they just decide to show up one day? No God created the heavens and the Earth. Only God would be able to make something out of nothing.

A favorite Christian rationalization for why God does not answer our prayer to eliminate cancer is because "it would take away free will." The logic: If you pray and God answers your prayer, then God would have revealed himself to you, and you would know that God exists. That would take away your free will to believe in him. Of course, if this is true, then by default all of Jesus' statements about prayer in the Bible are false. It means that God cannot answer any prayer.

The Belief IN God, is one of willful choice. When one becomes a believer, they begin a period of growth whereby the slowly die off to self. At the beginning, then there is a duality involved. The god of SELF versus, the God of creation. Those who are the good soil, of Matthew 13, invariably die off to self, and God assumes the throne of that person's life. How rapid or quickly the Throne is given over to God, depends upon the earnestness of the follower, and how much time is spent in the word. Those who pick and choose what scriptures they will or are not willing to obey, are those who are god to themselves. They rule upon their throne.
IS such a person truly saved? Only God Himself, knows for sure.

0AlexZhang0-The logic: If you pray and God answers your prayer, then God would have revealed himself to you, and you would know that God exists.

So you live under the presumption of logic? The World does not function by something as limiting as logic. Example; you by the use of logic are suggesting that God isn't real because He doesn't remove a consequence of your actions?

Yes you did ... you specifically inferred that cancer just sort of happens, and has NOTHING to do with your actions? So you BLAME God for NOT taking away the consequence of YOUR Lifestyle do you?

So If your a Mountain climber, and you fall, it's Gods fault for not stopping you in midflight? If you run across the street and are Hit by a car, it's somehow Gods fault? Surely YOU didn't have something to do with it? So God isn't real because he REQUIRES you to pay the consequence of your errors?

Logis starts faalling apart when you insert COMPLETE logic and not just the PART of logic that suits you doesn't it?

Truth IS that like all THOSE examples, there IS ANOTHER consequence awaiting YOU. Hell. WHY? because you have closed your mind and heart .... because you look for proof among Men instead of proof from God.

God says in scripture He has MADE His presence known IN HIS CREATION ..... HAVE you looked deeper into creation? Have you looked at the data that is available .... not scientists opinions, just the data. Look at the data and ask God to SHOW you the truth, while there is yet time. You don't HAVE as long as you think you have?

However it seems con is forgetting to keep in mind the debate is about the idea of a God, not just Jesus Christ and Yahweh.

The irony of what quiggs is saying is that if it is impossible for something to come from nothing, then how did your god show up? If you say he was just always there, that point is literally worthless. If you argue back where did the big bang theory come from then? I can then say, well nothing, and that means I guess we are on the same page that something can come from nothing, and that point is worthless. However, to this point, to my awareness, it may be impossible for humans to near fully understand the concept of nothing in today's society.
