That’s where the problem lies for me, I don’t have faith because I cannot force myself to believe in something – especially a claim so extraordinary as God – without some solid evidence. It simply makes no sense to me that a being that supposedly created the entire universe would be so interested in the trivialities of individual lives, and would have chosen to reveal itself through a single desert-dwelling tribe’s stories thousands of years ago.
I mean no offense at all, but since we’re on the topic, I thought I might ask. Why do you have faith in the claims about Jesus and not in the claims of other religion’s ideas? If it relies so heavily on faith, is it possible that if you’d been introduced to a religion other than Christianity growing up/whenever you became a believer, that you’d view Christianity as wrong and your beliefs as right?
If you do have proof of God, definitely feel free to share it.
