What is religion? Who is God? What is the way to heaven? How can you get there? What is so bad about hell?

Heaven and Hell are states of mind - not actual places. There is no scientific proof that a God exists.
That's why you have to BELIEVE.
How convenient.

It is not that what a Christian believes is the truth, but that a Christian just happens to believe in the truth. Besides, if there is no truth, than there is nothing beyond ourselves and then what is the overall purpose for living? There MUST be truth! Very Happy

What is god? Question

We are the god since we are the judge of our desteny. There is no such superiority like god.

Religion was invented as the path to find out some questions like Who am I? What is world,etc. People who were trying to find out such answers came to believe that there is some thing which is hard to understand. And final answers arrived that we are puppet of superiority and that superiority is a god. After the time cultures, rituals, etc. were added. So there is no scientific reason behind all these.

how can we be a judge of our destiny, if we do not live long enough to qualify for the position? a judge of destiny must exist long enough to have the long perspective required to make final decisions, don't you think?

what archealogical evidence is there to prove that people made up a god to explain difficult questions? would it be just as plausible that early man was quite acqainted with a creator, and the story [in re-telling] some areas did not repeat it as accurately as others?

I do not believe in any religion. What is religion? It's just the belief to make people feel more optimistic. However, today, people change the religion to the War. It is oposite of what God wants, right?

I hate to say this, but I don't think I devoted myself totally to God yet.
However, I have found myself that I am getting involved more and more. I can not believe how God has changed me and my circumstances. Believing in God is really important for the sake of people in many ways.....

Dear starblue,
There should not be a trade between God and you.
Having a naive mind is really crucial...
Please be aware of it.
You will see how much you need God and how he touches you.
