I believe the answer to this question is not to be found in intellectual argument or knowledge. It can be found in a personal revelation of such knowledge, from God himself, where the Spirit of God communicates directly with our human spirit, to confirm in our spirit the answer to the question. This is not blind faith. This is a personal knowedge that is undeniable!

This response is out there isn't it? But that's is the point. The answer is not found within the norms of our reasoning abilities. We do not have the capacity to attain such knowledge. It needs to be given to us.

1 Corinthians 2:9-12 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Dear Peter J
I've met several people, in this real world, who are of the same opinion as your's. They are really BRILLIANT.
The 'Burning Bush,' however, has not appeared to me yet.

All the best,

Unfortunately the 'Burning Bush' is well hidden in a forest of trees painted red and orange with the idealogies and philosophies of intellectual minds, and crackling away with the amplification of organised religion. However it is there ... if you look carefully .....

Don't give up now ....Emotion: big smile
Faith or belief in God doesn't have to be based on blind faith.
Hello there.
Hello Peter J. I take your word for it!
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Though I am not a Christian, I believe that Jesus was a real character chosen by God to guide his people. However, he was a human, not the son of God, or anything like that. This is actually what Muslims believe, though I think it doesn't matter. The important thing is that all the divine religions have the same message and the same purpose, and in God's eyes, there is no difference between a Christan, a Muslim, a Jew, .., as long as they are true believers, not that they think that they are right. If they get the essence of their religions, they'll respect each other instead of killing, hurting,...
I'm not a religeous person myself, but let me butt in. Your interesting discussion prompted me to read [SECTION III. OF THE NECESSITY OF THE WAGER] of 'Pensees' by B. Pascal. It's worth reading, IMHO. Sorry if somebody has mentioned that passage already.
...........................................................................................

233. Infinite- nothing.
-- Our soul is cast into a body, where it finds number, dimension. Thereupon it reasons, and calls this nature necessity, and can believe nothing else.

(...)

Reason can decide nothing here. There is an infinite chaos which separated us. A game is being played at the extremity of this infinite distance where heads or tails will turn up. What will you wager? According to reason, you can do neither the one thing nor the other; according to reason, you can defend neither of the propositions: "God is, or He is not."
---Do not, then, reprove for error those who have made a choice; for you know nothing about it. "No, but I blame them for having made, not this choice, but a choice; for again both he who chooses heads and he who chooses tails are equally at fault, they are both in the wrong. The true course is not to wager at all."
---Yes; but you must wager. It is not optional. You are embarked. Which will you choose then? Let us see. Since you must choose, let us see which interests you least. You have two things to lose, the true and the good; and two things to stake, your reason and your will, your knowledge and your happiness; and your nature has two things to shun, error and misery. Your reason is no more shocked in choosing one rather than the other, since you must of necessity choose. This is one point settled. But your happiness? Let us weigh the gain and the loss in wagering that God is. Let us estimate these two chances. If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation that He is.

Anonymoushello,

yes im 100% sure that jesus is a name of real person he really exist.i can tell u ppl. with examples also.

but God and jesus are totally 2 differnt persons.

Supporting the above view, i say that I do believe in God, cause i believe that, not only seeing is believing. And I am completely sure that Jesus is not God.(A big IMHO)

And last but not least, there's not a gender of God, hence nor personality... God is the Objective reality! Whom (if we can call Him like this) the humanity tends to interpret in different ways.

PS. It is with heart that one sees rightly; what is essential is invisiable to the eye. (from the Little Prince)
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
If Jesus did not really exist, it would be hard to explain the religion of Christianity based on his existence. Even the Jewish Talmud that condemns Jesus to boiling excrement, does not deny his existence. Nobody questions that Buddha or Muhammad existed, and their religions are a testimony to their existence.

As for God's existence, it is proven by the fact that the Bible that declares Him, is credible because it is accurate in every area of human knowledge of which it speaks: history, medicine, science, etc. I can give numerous examples.

Other proofs from reason are: If there is no God or spiritual reality, there is also no basis for believing humans have superior value to other life forms (the basis of criminal law, e.g.murder), and there is no basis for morality, right and wrong. Human society then would belong to the strong and clever who are powerful enough and smart enough to exploit others for their own selfish advantage. There would be no soul after death and no accountability before God for the evil things people do.

There is a good book on the subject if anyone is interested.
