I'm talking about the god people say exists.
Are these people telling you that god would help you and answer your prayers? If they have lied to you then surely this is proof that god does not exist, surely he would not allow those who believe in him to lie?
Believe in yourself , take control of your life and for those who tell you god exists, then maybe in their worlds, but tell them not in yours, you do not need a god.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

God does not give us what we want, he is not a Genie we can make wishes to.  He will, however, give us what we need.  The problem is what we think we need and what he thinks we need are not the same thing.  I have learned over the years that what I did not receive was amongst the greatest of blessings, even more than those things I did receive.  We can be spared much suffering but be unaware that the path we are led on is designed to do that, we think it all looks so disastrous and then suddenly a whole new world of possibilities open up before us that would not have been there had we been given what we thought we wanted when we started out.

Remember, our soul is eternal and our time here is but a fraction of that - nothing in the material world will last or give us lasting happiness.  Here,  with the sweet will always come the sour, the good times will be so good only because we know how bad things can be.  It is a harsh reality and all things in it pass - we need to cultivate a state of being where we can maintain our serenity, our certainty that all will be as it should be regardless of whether times are very good or very bad.

Someone has already suggested meditation and I am going to second that suggestion.  A good meditation instructor will teach you how to observe all your thoughts and your desires and to understand how they are leading you around by the nose because perversely they are addicted to the suffering they give, they actually want the experience of that emotion, have a really good think about that - are you hugging your suffering and nurturing it as though it were precious to you somehow? Great questions encourage great teachings, go out and find some good teachers and ask them some big questions face to face.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Q) If God loves me why doesn't he help me?

A) Because it just doesn't work like that.

The reality is far more like something my Grandmother used to say, "God helps those who help themselves". I could also add to this that help comes far more frequently to those who help and care about others.

Dunno,god seems to have helped some people,quite a lot ....and then others,not at all .

All dragons know that story.

Some gnostic-type teachings state there are only two worlds: Heaven and this world, and that this world is "Hell", relatively speaking.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

Very true that. I do not believe in a god, but if others wish to then who am I to tell them otherwise? I do not have communist tendencies and each man has a right to believe in his own world his own gods or not.
To me, trying to convince someone their god does not exist amounts to the same as someone trying to tell a non believer that their god does.
I need proof, but I also respect that those who believe have the proof they need in their hearts and minds, but I have faith in my own heart and mind without the need of a god to back me up.

Hi guys ,
I'm going to chime in on this thread because there was a statement I'm not for! That statement is:

"God helps those who help themselves"

Let me say as somebody who has been fortunate enough to have encountered God and the spirit world first hand this statement is a curse!

And since I have been this fortunate let me say that I am completely unworthy to have had this experience. As a Spirit being I'm completely ashamed of myself, and I say that from the depths of my heart.

However, back to that statement.

What's wrong with it? A) It's loosely saying those who can't help themselves won't be helped by God and those who can help themselves will be helped. I will go further to saying its often touted by the materialist people of proof that they were helped by God to acquire such material wealth and this means God loves them more, because there so blessed with such material assets.

To those of you who are really hurting or hiding from going before God because of your sin let me remind you that " come as you are" is a offering to be received despite your sin or fear. Just go to him, don't be afraid because God is lowly in heart, will rejoice just that you have made a small offering of faith. He hears every word you say and will forgive, you may not know why you have feared and run away but there's much more behind the scenes God does see, you only see 50% at best of reality, like a iceberg you only see a fraction, but you don't see the currents that can control that iceberg either and those currents can take take the iceberg very far!

There's nothing wrong with asking God to guide you, if you make a mistake it's because your not strong enough, so then pray also for courage and strength, you will need both. Pray for what you lack internally , if your hearts damaged and you lost your conscience pray for that, if your not as smart as you need to be pray for wisdom..if your under attack pray for protection, if you sinned pray for forgiveness.

Those who are healthy don't need a doctor! Hardly nice to hear that god helps those who CAN help themselves..but try help yourself by turning to God if you can't help yourself after you tried.

Pray for internal things in yourself and pray for your adversaries.this requires forgiveness, forgiveness will make you stronger than them, but its not easy. Love your enemy more than yourself but don't let them take advantage of you.

you may feel abandoned right now. (My guides tell me its relationship problems) We all get that! " my god my god why hast thou forsaken me!" Even the best don't always know what direction the current  is moving at times..it's ok just do your best.

And lastly a warning! :

Don't curse God to his face! This is what the story of Job is really about, because he's a good man of heart he was allowed to have that tested, every good work is tested, even his wife told him to curse God  to his face! (She was filled with the wrong spirit at that point )..you may be suffering to bring Glory to God.just do your best and hold onto your faith and your heart, forgive them, do this to bring Glory to our father.

And to those who challenge I say be careful, whoever instructs the lords children to do wrong will have there part take away, it will mean indemnity.

I cursed God to his face many times, out of unspeakable anger, and desperation to be killed. Of course, I'm still alive today, so I just came to the conclusion that God isn't listening to me, doesn't care or doesn't exist. I think I read in the Book of Job that if you curse God, you die. Worth a shot.

I know saying that sounds very nasty of me, but I'm not "evil", unless of course you insist I am, then I don't mind. If God exists, and he's a truly kind, understanding, and loving with true infinite wisdom God, I don't mind worshiping him. But it doesn't seem that way. I feel that god hasn't been nice to me my whole life.

That's why I'd rather choose death, I can't go a day without thinking of suicide.

What if I said that no matter how much your hurting God is hurting for you more, in your tears God is also crying for you as I am now.

I don't mind a god like that. That's more of the kind of god I'm looking for.

But far too long have I felt that my suffering has gone unnoticed, I've felt that not even God cares about me.

Do not admit that, the god worshippers will say it is because of your cursing that you not have had much luck.
Personally, i would say your luck was down to your own not believing in yourself, I do not know you, but already from what i have read of your posts, you have a lot going for you, you are just not looking in the right direction. Drop the god thing, I do not think it is for you.
There is a lot out there for you to explore, and god is not going to help you find them. But ask some of us and we will help you.
