    One of the hardest things to picture in religion is how God is eternal.
    How can a being go on for ever and how could it never be created in the first place?

    My personal view is that if scientists believe that energy or mass cannot be destroyed or created, to deny a possibility of an eternal god would be a felony and a declaration of a disagreement with stock scientific facts and evidence.

    I’d love to here your opinions!

    I believe God is real to the people who believe God is real. How real God is would depends on their level of belief. Some accept every thing about God as Gospel (no pun intended) while others set conditions on their beliefs. The Christian faith is not universally the same for all who hold beliefs.

    Belief is a funny thing. You don't have to believe in something for it to be real. It simply is whether you believe in it or not. There are countless things that we do not have explanations for, simply theories. One thing that I have put my belief in is in the thought of there being something much greater than myself. Bigger, broader, limitless, much like space. Now how or who created all that is up to you to wonder, but I think that journey is what will define your faith. It may take a lifetime or a certain moment in your life for you to understand it, but somehow you'll get your answer, never stop knocking.

    I am also a Christian and believe everything said in the Bible to be true (excep for the parables obviously). Other ‘Christians’ are not eve angelical, but I do not believe them to be real Christians if they deny the word of God. The parables are the stories or fables and if they all were stories, the bible would not make a difference between fact and parable.

    I apologise if I may have offended with this comment but it is what I believe.

    Grew up southern Baptist and didn't miss church unless you had a really really good reason. Have went through periods of questioning my belief in God, until my father became ill and we faced the decision of keeping him on life support or not. At the point of his last breath, I worried if he would make it to heaven and I also worried if I would for thinking such a thing.

    That is just human, we all to some degree question our longevity past this lifetime. I don't believe we are penalized for questioning, as a matter a fact I think it's expected. If you go by the bible, many questioned why and what was happening to them as they went through those trials, but while going through them is where and when they found their answers.

    I grew up the same. Dad’s even a pastor. It’s only natural for a human being to say hey I wonder if all this is really real. But for me when I look at my life I see where God has brought me from what he has helped me with it lets me know everything’s gonna be alright. And as long as you have a testimony and you’ve met God you’ll be alright doesn’t matter what you do where you go God goes with you!

    I’m a devout evangelist and I believe that you can be forgiven for any sin regardless as long as you are sorry!
