I was brought up Christian. Always believed I was Christian... even when I got my DP as a child and it wouldn't go away. I prayed for "my problem" to go away, but it didn't. When I was in third grade, I asked my teacher "Why did God create the world if he knew there would be so much pain and suffering?" She thought for a minute and said "Well have you ever had the fun of making something out of clay and didn't want anyone to destroy it?..." And she just kinda trailed off. What kind of answer is that?!

I've been to church, I've been preached to by an uncle that's in prison now for incest with his adopted daughter, my cousin. And I tried to believe it, I tried to read the Bible. But I just don't get it. If God is all-powerful.... why didn't he create everything perfect... or at least better. And I've been told well it's beyond our comprehension that's where faith comes in... you just have to believe. But how can anyone NOT doubt that there's a God?

Is this life really a gift? Did Jesus really die for my sins so that I could go to Heaven? And what sins??? I didn't ask for this. I didn't ask to be here. The way I see it we're all innocent, even if Jesus didn't die for us how could we be held accountable for these sins? We were created to make sins... I don't understand this free will crap. What is free? I am in a trap. I live and do what I do to get by.

The Bible says drinking to the point of intoxication is a sin. How can it be a sin if when you're not drinking you're in complete terror? How can you be sent to Hell for that? How could a loving God send any of his "children" to Hell??? And this whole Satan thing.... didn't God create Satan....? He was an angel but got kicked out cuz he disagreed with God or something? I don't get it.

I don't get any of this. And you know what... I still pray, even though I'm not so sure anymore. I pray He'll give me a sign or something. What does He want from me?! I will do anything for some peace! But He won't show me.... I'm lost. And does it really count.... believing in God just cuz you're scared, just cuz you have to believe in something? I feel doomed no matter what. I just want the pain to stop. God... is that too much to ask?

my question is not so much if god is all powerful, then why did he create all this pain and suffering, but if god is all powerful, then why do we supposedly go to hell for things like, commiting suicide if we are extreamly depressed, or simply if we dont "accept" jesus. If he is all powerful, then doesn't he have the power to bring us to heaven and not let satin or whoever take us to hell"?

And i'm sick of it when christians tell is my choice if want to go to hell or is my choice if i want to accept jesus or not. First of all, i dont think that is really true... I don't see myself as ever being able to look at something so black and white, i don't think i could ever willingly change my views on how i feel about religion...second of all, why would anyone desersve to go to hell, just because they question the existance of god or disagree with certain things that the bible says? No one deserves to suffer for eternity for having their own beliefs/opinions and questioning thinngs! isn't this what we are taught in life?

The bible makes god sound like a Sadam Housain "If you don't do it my way, then you die!"

I hope i dont offend anyone by this, but the bible makes it sound like god is quite the evil one: if we "dont accept jesus and believe in him", then we burn in hell for eternity!?? It's not right or fair in any way. It actually goes against much of what the bible says itself! It's like it all contradicts itself!!!!! Actually, i've recently come to believe that the bible is just a big puzzle book of lies and jokes and contradictions.

I'm not an athiest, but i'm not any organized religion. I believe that anything is possible, because no one knows what happens when we die. The bible may very well be true (but i hope it isn't!), but i still think it is a bunch of BS!

So many people look at is so black and white--like there either is a god, or their isn't. It doesn't make any sense to me. I prefer to keep an open mind about everything, especially since no one really knows what happens when you die...anything could be possible.
