why do we have to believe in god
This is THE really BIG life choice question! This most important choice is one of such extreme and eternal consequence that it needs attention in a rather quick and fast degree! Each of us has no guarantee of taking breath even tomorrow! Our time is limited and only God knows what is on our calendar! Believing in God, through His Son, Jesus Christ and asking Him to forgive you of all your sins and then be cleansed of all unrighteousness is in need of your immediate attention! (1 John 1:9)
You ask 'Why"? Well, I ask you to think on this. Do you want to be in Heaven after you die? Or, is it just ok to think or make your decision otherwise and REJECT His calling to become a "saved by the Grace of God", by the eternal sacrifice of Jesus Christ, His one and only begotten Son, whom He sent to die for YOUR sins --and-- mine? (Ephesians 2:8) Jesus paid the ULTIMATE price for His SACRIFICE! He gave His very life at that cross to take away, to remove my sins and your sins "as far as the east is from the west"! (Psalms 103:12) His eternal gift at Calvary was and is The Single Greatest act of love and The Single Greatest gift to all of mankind--His Children! And, HIS guarantee! (2 Corinthians 1:22) (2 Corinthians 5:5) (Ephesians 1:13-14)
I ask you to find a place to pray in private. Get on your knees and bow your head and just start talking to God. Ask Him what are His plans for you and your life. , but, first ask him to speak to you inside your heart and mind. He is willing and able, but we each have to respond to His calling. I think he has patiently been calling you and 'nudging' you; I. e. , your very question you've asked here on ebible. com.
Give him time to speak to your very thoughts, mind and heart. Patiently "be still and know that He is GOD"! And, that HE hears your request and that HE (God) loves you more than you will ever know. (Psalms 46:10)
A children's Sunday school song came into my mind at this very moment! It goes like this: "God loves the little children; all the children of the world! Red and yellow, black or white, they are precious in His sight! God loves the little children of the world.! " (We are ALL GOD'S PRECIOUS CHILDREN. And, So very much are YOU as well! )
Ask HIM to save you! "And, all will be well with your soul". Calling out the name of Jesus Christ and asking Him to save you and that you believe in Him and trust in Him and want Him to forgive you of all your many sins is THE single most important request you will ever make in your entire lifetime. Your very salvation is THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT event; and, 'Pivotal' moment of your life and any and every child of God's life! (Romans 10:13)
I remember vividly and very strongly that pivotal moment which happened for me on a Friday night back in 1979. May you have your "pivotal, eternity changing moment soon. very soon". As I like to close with my saying: "Praise God that He provided a Savior! And, His name is Jesus Christ! "
Why Should I Believe God Exists? I've often had people say to me that they don't really believe in God because they've never been given any reasons to believe in such a being. Even people who have gone to Church for many years have said the same thing to me no evidence for God has been offered, so they just go to church to please their parents / partner / family or friends.
But it means little to them because they can't see that Christianity can be true if God doesn't exist. Christians, however, do have a number of reasons for believing in God. This article will, very briefly, outline some of them and give you links to resources which will explore these further. At the end, some books on the subject are recommended in case you'd like to read further on this. This is called the Cosmological Argument and asks how the universe came into being. Peter May explores this question and why it gives us a good reason to believe in a Creator God in two of his articles: and. This is called the Fine Tuning argument and asks why the physical laws controlling the universe are so finely balanced to be 'just right' for life to exist. Peter May again explores this in. The astronomer Hugh Ross goes into more scientific detail behind both the Cosmological Argument and the Fine Tuning Argument in his talk. This is called the Moral Argument. If certain actions are objectively right or wrong, this implies that this is more than a social consensus of how to behave. If there are Laws, then there needs to be a Lawgiver. Peter May again explores this in his article. Christian philosopher Peter S. Williams gives a concise but clear explanation of the Moral Argument in conversation with Alex Banfield Hicks in start listening at about 11 minutes in. Another Christian philosopher Bill Craig gave a 45 minute lecture to students at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London on this topic. Watch the video here: The central belief of Christianity is that Jesus of Nazareth rose from the dead.
These resources explore whether it is reasonable to believe in the resurrection of Jesus. Christians believe that God is always at work in the world, and that the events and teaching recorded in the Bible particularly speak to us of who God is and of his love for us. The resurrection of Jesus is the supreme example of God acting in history to validate the life, teaching and ministry of Jesus who reveals God to us. Watch.
