    Lets say you had a chance to fine out, once and for all, whether God actually existed. Would a Christian want to take the chance that God didn't exist? Would they still believe in God even though a God didn't exist?

    If God did exist, you would also find out whether it was the Christian version or Islamic version of God - would you still want to know?

    Or do you prefer not knowing?

    Um... I already do know God exists. He revealed Himself to me. Kind of difficult to do if He didn't exist.

    In fact, He invites everyone to come to Him and find out for themselves whether He is there.

    That is not what I meant. You believe he exists, but you can't prove that he exists to me, can you?

    Is your line of questioning designed to prove something? I think there's truth seekers of all persuasions.

    Question for idiots Why do you care what people believe? You want to find God? Well stop looking in a abortion factory for him.

    Did I correct anything she said? Did I claim I didn't understand anything she was saying? Stop deflecting troll.

    We may not be able to conceive of God in the fullest sense, but there are certain things God would have to be like and certain things that would not be possible.

    God cannot be like Santa Clause.

    Everything must be part of God.

    We can give nothing to God. We cannot pay God 'off' or 'back'.

    God must accept all that God is and all the God's creation is.

    We are not in a position to judge what creation is or seems to do.

    If we do not believe in God and God does exists, God is big enough to get over it.
