Does God exist? I’ve been back and forth with this thought and I can’t come to a conclusion. I want to believe there is a higher power but it doesn’t make sense. It gives us hope that something better will come. Which is the worse thing we can have. If we have hope that something will change we will no longer try to change it ourselves. I don’t want to disrespect anyones religious beliefs. If there is a God he or she wouldn’t put people on this earth with all these problems that they couldn’t fix themselves. We look to God to fix our problems instead of thinking he or she gave us all the weapons we need to solve our own problems. Prayer without action is like wanting to get better without actually working for it. Another problem with believing in God is that there are many evil people who claim they are doing God’s work. I can’t fathom the thought that such a holy figure would want these evil actions to be done in his name. How do innocent people die in such horrible ways but there are murderers and rapist still breathing? Some things don’t make sense to me. If God is real he owes me some explanations about the horrible things that happen in our world. Thank you.
