Hey guys =]
I'm a bit new here, so I I offend someone, I'm really sorry =]
I don't personally believe in God, as I believe in karma and a bit of reincarnation. What goes around comes around- you do good things, good things happen to you (Trust me, I got hit on the head with a fridge door for saying something...) I don't want everything to end after I die you know? I want to still be there, even if I don't know it...
The bible was written by people a very, very long time ago. They needed to be able to understand... And at that time, many concepts were beyond their abilities... Their world was very different, and the way they percieved everything was different. So, what was told to them was told in a way they could understand and accept.
This I agree with, the Bible was also written a very long time ago, and the things that they needed explaining, could be normal parts of our lives now.
What I do believe in about God, is the faith He gives people. I don't easily trust people and I need proof for me to believe, but I've met people who are religious and they are happy with who they are, because they have a reason to live, because when they pass on, they will go to a safe place.
So, to finish this, I suppose all I can say is if there is a God, if you lived a good, happy life, would He forgive you for not believing in him and let you into where ever we go after death?
Sorry if that was an epic post
