How do you feel?

I remembered when i was in senior high school, a teacher of mine asked us one question “How would you feel if what you believe (which is your religion) is wrong?”. I answered “I’m okay with that”. and he amazed. “are you? well that’s good then.” that time, i only answered without thinking. Now when i saw today’s event, I know that the answer wouldn’t be that simple.

it would be a hurtful one to deal with the feeling.

And my friend got annoyed today, and said to me “a religion is not based on evidence, it’s based on trust”. I just listened silently.

well, i don’t know about you, but i will keep looking for the truth of my belief. it’s so not me to sit and trust what people has given me. How would you believe a person saying that “an apple is sweet” if you haven’t chew it by yourself? :D. well yeah, that’s a thought.

  1. I think in this world it can be just one belief is true. Like Mathematics , how u can count 1+1 in Mathematics?
    Some people believe that 1+1 is 4, others believe that it is 3 or 5. But just one doctrine and belief that can make sure it is 2. Even though many ways to make 2 as result of 1+1 , like a teaching methods that are taught to get result.How about people don’t know about 1+1? They are Atheists who don’t want to know about the truth about existence of God and His Mercy. And then after you were dead you will get final judge and in this illustration u will face and have to pass an exam. Do u can do that..? Are all of your answers correct? just ask to your self.

    Hope it can help..

  2. “They are Atheists who don’t want to know about the truth about existence of God and His Mercy”

    no you’re wrong :). they read the bible. i met so many atheists here, and they are more thoughtful than us, who call ourselves religious people. They might be looking for God harder than us.

    we are the people who have to be questioned here. have we read through the bible? have we understand what we believe is true? have we done the right thing?

    i’m sorry, but i’m a skeptical type of person. i’m now a christian, and until now, i haven’t changed, but that’s not because people told me to become a christian, so i become a christian. i’ve gone through a long searching for God and until it brought me here to believe in Jesus. Have i checked for other religions? yes i have, and i’m still tasting “each of them”, i’m still trying to prove what i believe is right, until now, i never stop.

    and because i never stop, i’ll have no rights to judge others belief is wrong. but i can hand them a logical explanation of my belief, and my experience of encountering Him during my 20 years-old life.

    My question is:
    Have you been able to say that “my apple is sweeter than yours” when you even haven’t tasted the other apples? :)

  3. @no you’re wrong :) . they read the bible. i met so many atheists here, and they are more thoughtful than us, who call ourselves religious people. They might be looking for God harder than us.
    is it freethinker?? not atheist I think :D
    but many atheists come from Christian they search and search about the truth of the God and in the end they find that there are no God ,they are smart and what they can do now? Just disputing with other Christian and then make us as Disciples of Christ will turn way and follow them. Many Atheists just because of it they learn and looking for God harder than us. Why can they come to the conclusion that God is not exist? The answer is very simple , because nobody in this world ,except Jesus Christ,can be over or the same with God’s. They can not beyond what is in God’s mind.

    like a simple analogy that :
    in the junior high school I had hobby to read about galaxy and then It’s really difficult to understand how big bang can happen, how can there are many galaxies? Yes that is normal as a human. If just because of galaxy u will get difficult how about u can learn about the Creator of it… Like there was a man named John Sung and he was Methodist, he liked to dispute and study doctrines about God and then he became crazy because of it after that he just learned about bible not wanted to dispute anymore or learned about the truth of doctrines. It signs that nobody in this world how clever and smart can beyond God’s.

    @: we are the people who have to be questioned here. have we read through the bible? have we understand what we believe is true? have we done the right thing?
    I think the best solution that u must read many doctrines about Christianity besides Bible so u can know about the truth and right thing even though they are not perfectly made but it’s enough to strengthen your faith…:D

    @: Have you been able to say that “my apple is sweeter than yours” when you even haven’t tasted the other apples? :)
    Of course we can know from the creator of apples… :D

    The most problem that Is your God the same with other religions?
    Are the Allah of Mohammad and Father of Jesus Christ the same?
    Many religious people have wrong interpretations about their doctrines or about their rules in religion just because of their cultures.

    @: i’m sorry, but i’m a skeptical type of person
    yes I know u are melanchole :D and I have one friend too like u but she doesn’t have any religion now just a freethinker…

  4. @chryst:
    nope, not a freethinker. they admit that they do not believe in God, and they say they are atheists.

    and by the way, one of atheist i know have read the bible and looking for an answer for more than 10 years.

    “Of course we can know from the creator of apples… :D”……….. oh so you think you know.

    and being skeptical does not mean you’re a melancholic person, and the opposite.

    thx for the opinion. :)

  5. very good if they are seeking for the truth of God. I’m glad hear about that.

    oh so you think you know… You can know too just ask to God :D

    welcome :D
