Let’s start by defining the word belief. It is a trust in something or someone. Have you ever thought about what do you actually believe to be true? I have many reasons to believe what I do. My beliefs aren’t something that pressured for me to do. I simply believe in these things because there has been proof in my own personal life. In addition, these beliefs are central to live and are very important to my character and morals.
I think everyone has a Christian worldview. If you have never heard of God or even knew him on a personal level, you can definitely see that there is a God. I believe in the existence of God. You can see that there is a God just by looking at His creation. Everything that is and was created is the product of Him. The most astounding is the human. I also believe that God created us in His very own image. Because he created us in His image, it is respectful if we try to display His image to others. When I say that, I mean we should show kind acts of God. We should have moral and values that will reflect the basic instructions before leaving earth that He provided for us.
Have you ever thought about the problem of evil? Does evilness question the existence of God? True enough, there is a lot of evilness in the world. There is also a lot of suffering. After watching the YouTube video entitled, “Suffering and Evil: The Probability Version, it said if we consider only the suffering in the world, then God’s existence may very well be improbable. I would like to disagree with this statement. If we only considered the bad things in the world, then that only creates more problems. God allow certain things to happen because we have to held responsible for our actions. This is a way to get closer to Him and appreciate him more. “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” (Romans 8:18) This scripture explains why God allows suffering in the world.
Some people think that God is impersonal. However, the Bible reveals God as a personal God. By Him being a personal God, he has the characteristics of a person. He is rational and conscious of His own being. I believe He is a living God. In the Bible, Joshua said, “By this you shall know that among you is the living God who without fail will drive out from before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites, and Jebusites.” (Joshua 3:10) God hears you and sees you. He knows when you call unto him in prayer. Aristotle and the Deists thought He was a distant God, but I respectfully disagree. I believe that He’s very close to us.
God loves everyone unconditionally. Whether you are a drunk, prostitute, drug dealer or anything else. We are born sinners to get to know Him. Standing on my beliefs, I know that God is a forgiving God. He tells us to repent all of our sins and we will be forgiven. That shows unconditional love that He has for us. On the other hand, that does not mean to keep sinning and expect Him to forgive you every time.
