Provoking Thought

Keeping An Open Mind

There Is No Question

Whatever you believe or don’t believe and whichever way you look at it, it becomes clear that God exists. The only point of contention is about what God is.

Before you can disbelieve in something you must have some conception of what that something is. You cannot disbelieve (or believe) in nothing.

Among many atheists and others, the disbelief is that of God being a bearded old man sitting on a cloud, loving where necessary and punishing where necessary. Or at the least, a humankind figure with superhuman powers. Little wonder God has become so distant to so many.

Look, ultimately, any intelligent person must accept that there is an intelligent creator of some kind otherwise the universe and all life forms could not exist. If you prefer to accept the Big Bang leading to Evolution theory, you must also accept that whatever caused it required elements that were created. Nothing can exist without a creator, the creatures we are supposed to have evolved from or the chemicals, gases and materials that caused the big bang.



Even the asking of this question suggests a cause, a creator.

It is ironic therefore, that scientists and other seemingly logical realists all accept the laws of cause and effect while still proclaiming that Everything was caused by Nothing.

The law of cause and effect states that nothing can exist without a cause. Thought is the cause and the materialisation of that thought is the effect.

For example, the chair you’re sitting on and the page you’re looking at and every other material thing in the world began as a thought – in someone’s mind. Even you, began as a thought in your parent’s mind.

Before anything, even the tiniest microbe - there had to be an intelligent, creative mind.

Thought precedes Everything.

Which brings us to the one exception that did not begin as a thought, because it didn’t begin.

It always was.

Infinitely, eternally, timelessly – It always existed.

This single factor confirms IT is above creation because IT IS Creation. Absolute. Supreme. Unquestionable. Unequivocal. Final.

So, what shall we call it?

Let’s call it God.

This Is Not A Religious Site

This is not a religious site. If you're religious great, you obviously believe in a God. If you're not religious great, you can believe in God and do his good work without religion. The important thing is that you are a 'spiritual' being - we all are - we are spiritual by default, we are religious by choice. Man created Religion, God created the Spirit.

I am not religious insomuch as I do not feel the need to attend church regularly or spend my life reading the Bible from beginning to end, over again. But I truly admire people that do or feel the need to.

Personally, I prefer to try to live God's words rather than read them and to practice God's work rather than be preached about it.

On the one hand I see a church full of people who want to be there and some that don't. I see people who feel the need to worship with others rather than alone.

I see people who need someone else to show them right from wrong, when they should listen to their conscience instead of a preacher.

I see people that fear God rather than loving Him and I see buildings, filled with gold and valuables within an organisation worth millions, while so many of God's children live with poverty and suffering.

To preach the evils of wealth to those who have nothing, is an hypocrisy I find hard to accept.

I believe in God and Jesus who is the human face of God. I believe he died for our sins and I believe he loves us and wants us to follow Him and love others unconditionally.

I Love my God with all my heart and I will do my best to practice and leave the preaching to someone else.
