-_- As many people are taught, God is a creation of man.
But what I truly find it: gods are a creation of man. Deities are a creation of man. Anything higher than them are created by man.
So how do you know God exists?
If you wipe all the mud away from the window, you can go have a true faith yourself.
Often times, humans create things to handle stress... someone else to blame, someone else to worship... etc etc...
May I just say this? Don't depend your entire life on the Book, depend on the Word.
The Book (Bible) has been changed so many times and reverted back and forth with chapters being taken out and new ones being placed in all to "conserve" and "protect" the church (building) and not the Church (people).
Don't depend on something that man has edited.
Don't depend on life with the philosophies of men who have extracted life in order to analyze it... see life for what it is in your eyes, and in what every other creature's eyes see. We humans tend to overthink and cloud what is truly there with our lies and assumptions... calm down and see what all the creatures see right in front of them.
If you believe in God, or try to deny it... the idea that God is still in your head is a small fact that something is out there.
Just like the idea that not all cultures could have imagined up dragons if they weren't real (they were just giant lizards and dinosaurs... maybe magic did exist in some of them, we can't know that because it doesn't concern us), we couldn't all have just imagined higher beings to rule over us or watching over us... no matter how little miracles there may be, a person can be convinced something is out there if you peel away all their barriers and leave them vulnerable...
So... if you want to believe in God, go right ahead. If you want to believe in the Bible, go right ahead. It's a right.
However... don't believe who God is from others. Who is God to you, or rather, who is God to all things? You'll find the answers even from pagans and atheists.
And also... don't believe in the Bible word by word. Honestly, it can't be as trusted as everyone says. People just cling onto it because they've based their entire lives upon it, and changing it would be catastrophic. ...but one thing is clear, God's Word is what was told for people to believe not specifically the Bible! ...God's Word isn't some simple text, it's Life itself.
This entire life and beyond it with death included is God's Word.
Not fate, no strings, nothing... creation itself and existance and death... all the answers within and around you can very well be God's Word, if that is what you are willing to accept.
Don't keep your eyes closed to anything. Even one closed eye can hide the entire truth from you.
If you've been in several religions, then you'll know a basis amongst them, maybe that's one part of the answer you're looking for.
Never try to break things apart and claim you know what it is as a whole.. see it for what it is.
