Proving Faith

Tags: , , , , , ,


 

Nowadays, faith is a touchy subject considering the person sitting next to you could be of a different faith and take offense to you expressing yours.  They might be Jewish, Lutheran, or even atheist.  Some people are pretty content on believing in their own religion; others are a bit open-minded.  Trying to explain your faith to others who are willing to listen is hard considering they could believe totally opposite.  For example, I’m Catholic and I believe in God…however, I cannot prove he exists.

 

God and his Son have been believed in, in my religion, ever since it was founded.  For centuries, people have continued my religion even though no one has ever been able to prove God exists.  Can they prove him now?  NO.  No matter how much evidence and how much the Bible explains him, no one has ever gotten rock-hard evidence God has existed.  Don’t get me wrong, I believe as much as the next guy, but I like to see things for myself.  Unless you can make him appear in front of me, I will always just believe in him purely due to my faith.

 

I believe in God 99%.  That other 1% has to do with science.  Science disproves everything supernatural and “other-worldly.”  I love science and everything about it, and even though my faith is strong, there will always be that teeny, tiny part of me that believes that science proves God, heaven, and everything else cannot possibly exist.  You can go ahead and say I’m wrong but, like I said before, you cannot say you’re right.  Science and religion have only one thing in common, they both cannot prove each other wrong.  Science may say God did not exist, but how do you know?  The same can be said for religion.  How do you know God DID exist?

 

Do I believe in God?  Yes.  Do YOU have to believe in him?  No.  You have your own mind, your own thoughts, and your own decisions.  God is one of the world’s biggest mysteries that can never be solved as long as you are alive.  To some people, God is real, for they have witnessed his hand at play.  For me, I’ve seen a sign of God through my entire life, yet I’ve never seen him.  So you might ask, “How do I witness something I haven’t seen?”  My answer to you is, “God is more than just a man, he is the love you have for someone else, he is the feeling you get in the center of your chest, he is the voice in the back of your mind, God is everything in me, he is everything in you too.  Why shouldn’t I believe in myself?”
