I didn't know until recently that my sister started going to church on Sundays.

She's married and settled in a city which is far from mine.

The other day, when she told me, I was surprised that she turned to believe in Christianity.

It's not that I'm against it.

I wish I could convince myself that there's God. So I bombed her with so many challenging questions, at last she gave in.

I found that she just goes to Church just like everyone around her does, including my borther-in-law.

Would you believe in God because everyone else does?


Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.

Believe in God has nothing to do with religion. I do believe in God but not the religious God. I believe God is something abstract with we can't see or touch. But to feel inside our-self which is cover by our intellectual mind. When we don't have this intellectual mind then we can feel it. That is call realization of God. I do believe in this God but not in that religious God. The great power of inner self.  Moreover its individual feeling.

Only at Knife Point, and for only as long as I need to Escape!   

My Parents forced me to attend when I was young. Many have knocked on my door trying to turn me.

All have FAILED to convince me that there is a God with the exception of Uncle Sam, and the Almighty Dollar. There are times, I am disappointed with him also!

Religion and politics  ...

No, we have enough sense not to talk about religion, as I said, live and let live.

I do believe that God exist. I attended a miracle healing session and I felt God did touch me. It is hard to describe but the feeling is fulfilling. No one can force you but between you and God. I was not even a Christian.
If we do not think that God exist, why do we use the phrase Act of God for unnatural disasters.
