How Do You Know That Your God Is Real?

I have often wondered why so many of us - Christians, Muslims, even Traditionalists and people of other faiths - steadfastly believe that God is real even though it seems that there's not much clear evidence to support this belief.

- How are you able to believe in someone you've not seen?

- How are you so sure that God is just, when the world is so unjust?

- How do you know he created the world, when you were not there?

- How do you know your religion is right, when all the others claim to be right?

- How come some are willing to die to get to a heavenly city no one has seen?

- In summary, how do you know that your God is real?

hey when i look at a house i know it was constructed by someone it did not just appear misteriously so too when we look at the marvelous creation around us the tree,the air we breath,the sea,the flower etc etc it tells us there is someone responsible for all these and that person will be no other than our loving creator Jehovah

I was just going through this thread again after a long time and I must say I find kodewrita's post very wonderful.  This is the part I like most:

why do you believe your religion is the true religion?

I will answer that with a related question. why do I even believe in the bible? Because Of its historical veracity and the proofs of its prophecies and the sound concepts within. this is a book that predicted the destruction of Tyre by Alexander The Great in exact detail. A book that named a conqueror Cyrus the Great (destroyer of Babylon)more than 50 years before his birth. A book that predicted the first century famine in the Roman empire (Prophet Jael). A book that contains legal, medical and scientific concepts many years ahead of its time (separation of religion and state; check Deuteronomy. Personal hygiene and Quarantine measures; check first five books. Shape of the earth). The existence of historical figures like sennacherib has been proved establishing its veracity.

This Same book tells me that "I am the way , the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me." That means there is no other route by which you may enter heaven. My religion is also the only one that maintains a belief in salvation not through our deeds. Islam is just Arab Judaism, Buddhism was originally meant to cure the evils imposed on poor people by the Brahmin faith and caste in India, Shinto is simply state imposed form of Buddhism inculcating japanese gods and godesses. Buddhism believes in an Eternal Nothingness( in esssence no afterlife) and it does not answer the question of how we got here (it doesn't even bother and true buddhists do not believe in God)

You know God is real by an inner conviction. something in you tells you yes when you hit the right spot.

Your spirit one way or the other nudges you and you find out you begin to accept and think it over until you finally believe

I believe you have a very good knowledge of science so I expect you to understand this.

Science clearly shows that the universe couldn't have happened by chance. The precise ratios of the 4 forces (electromagnetic,gravitational, strong and weak) ensure existence of certain elements including carbon (which makes up every organism). The shape and distance from the sun which enhance accumulation of water, oxygen and H2O., The phenomenon of photosynthesis which scientists haven't been able to explain using evolution(it is irreducibly complex). The Big Bang and the puzzling question of why antimatter particles did not eliminate matter (preventing the existence of even the stars). The Bible tells us in many places that he created the world. The theory of evolution itself contains a principle already existent in the bible (from stellar bodies to plants to animals to man.).

First of all, we must remember that God is not the cause of the evils of this world.  Genesis 1:31 tells us, concerning God’s creation, that “God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.”  The evil and pain and suffering do not enter in until Genesis 3 when Adam and Eve doubted the goodness of God and disobeyed His word.  Then they hid from God’s presence and were subject to pain and sorrow, labor and work, suffering and death.  It was after man’s sin that Cain killed his brother Abel and wickedness and violence increased upon the earth (Genesis 4-6).

This Same book tells me that "I am the way , the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me." That means there is no other route by which you may enter heaven. My religion is also the only one that maintains a belief in salvation not through our deeds. Islam is just Arab Judaism, Buddhism was originally meant to cure the evils imposed on poor people by the Brahmin faith and caste in India, Shinto is simply state imposed form of Buddhism inculcating japanese gods and godesses. Buddhism believes in an Eternal Nothingness( in esssence no afterlife) and it does not answer the question of how we got here (it doesn't even bother and true buddhists do not believe in God)

NOTE:You will note that the most ardent agnostics and atheists are not scientists, they are philosophers .

My religion is right because it provides me hope and life.

The Bible talks about having salvation and life after death in heaven. So if you believe in heaven, then you believe in heavenly bliss

My God is real, i can feel his presence, i can see his works, i have seen him heal people miraculously of sicknesses that would have taken years to heal in the natural, he answers my prayers.

I challenge anybody out there who is in doubts or don;t believe at all. Give him a chance. Just say God i need you, and u will see the wonders of God. GOD IS REAL.

Air, but u know its there. A pregnant woman doesnt see her baby (except through special UV light),yet she knows there's a baby there. Sensory perceptions could be an illusion (..eg mirage). U don't have to see to believe. Reason for Intuitive knowledge.

OUR actions.

Creator to have a[b] creation[/b]

I know My God is real because He is REAL to me.

I believe the Bible anything the bible says is true.

Gen. Chapt 1 vs 1-3 says In the beginning God created the the heaven and the earth.

And the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters

And God said let there be light and there was light.

Look at world and her beauty it couldn't have been if there is no designer.

How can a beautiful house stand without the builder and the designer?

I know the God I believe is the truth and original Acts. 4:12 says Neither is there any salvation in any other: for there is none other under heaven giveth among men whereby we must be saved.

That we or world is unjust doesn't make God unjust. God is just.

"how are you able to believe in someone you've not seen?"

Because I believe in so many other things that I have not seen including quarks, atoms and other concepts. I can feel him and see his works.

"How are you so sure that God is just, when the world is so unjust?"

The unjustness of the world is not something to feel pain about since no one will go scot free. <y religion tells me it wasn't always like this. i will talk more about this later.

"How do you know he created the world, when you were not there?"

Scientific. I will open another post to discuss this

"How do you know your religion is right, when all the others claim to be right?"

My religion is the only one that provides hope that mankind is not doomed to

"How come some are willing to die to get to a heavenly city no one has seen?"

Because they also believe in a god they have not seen

"In summary, how do you know that your God is real?"

Because I have seen evidence of his existence.

How are you able to believe in someone you've not seen?

i have not seen him before but i have seen and read his beautiful work.

Who else wld create the world. even if i was not there i have read in his book. its for us to believe or not and i have chose the part to believe in his words rather than ignoring it. (he who has ears let him hear).

With the issues of religion been right or wrong was a little bit difficult. i did a little bit of research and decided that my own religion and church is the right one for me to worship my Lord.

hmmmmmmmmmm. with life after death is what i believe in but the confusing part of it now is the debate btw life in heaven and life on earth. dont really know for now am still doing me resarch. but i believe that the Lord i serve has got a beautiful place for me after death.(am very willing becos its me Lord's House).

I know that me God is real,becos i feel and hear him.
