Do you believe in God...?

I ought to. I have experienced him for myself several times.

In the Western world, or in Christendom, people will say, “I believe in God.” That is very easily said. But do they really believe what Jesus said? For instance, he said: “God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) The majority of “believers” in God will say “Yes” to the question but at the same time express belief in the theory of the evolution of man. If one believes in the evolution of man, how can he believe in the creation of man by God and the fall of man into sin and death? And if he does not believe the Bible account of creation, why exercise faith in Christ Jesus?Source(s): How Strong Is Your Faith? https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1963002?q=beli...

No. I stopped believing in imaginary figures like that around the age of 12, about the same time I stopped believing in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. [Edit: if you see the word Santa in red and green colors, the system automatically did that. I don't know how or why.]

Yes, for the same reason I believe in my wife. I know them both, and live in daily relationship and communication with them both. Therefore I would have to be mentally unstable to doubt the existence of either of them.

I have met Yeshua ("Jesus") a number of times over the past 25 years. He is real, He is alive, He has spoken to me, and I have spoken to Him. Each encounter was unexpected and unique. Search YouTube for "Jesus encounter" and you will see He has appeared to atheists, Jews, Muslims, etc...
Joh 8:23-24 Yeshua said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he [the messiah] you will die in your sins.”
Mat 10:37-38 [Yeshua speaking] Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.
Is Yeshua ("Jesus") the most important thing in your life? How much time do you spend with Him every day? Is He your friend?
Spend time every day singing (out loud) praise and worship songs... these songs should mention the blood of Jesus, the cross, and/or attributes of the character and nature of God. Here are a few of my favorites (you can set it to shuffle play so they play in random order):
Spend time in prayer every day (praying out loud). Here are prayers I say every day. Modify them as you see fit for your situation and circumstances:
Spend time every day reading your Bible (reading out loud). I use the E.S.V. but the King James (not the "New" King James) is the most accurate translation as it is the ONLY translation that uses the Textus Receptus manuscripts.
Praying in tongues is probably the most important thing I have learned to do. Learn to pray in tongues, and pray in tongues for at least an hour every evening before going to bed. Since I started doing this I have had numerous dreams, visions, and even encounters with Yeshua. Here is a document I put together to help people understand and get started:
Here is some "soaking" music to listen to while praying or reading - it is important to pray and read out loud, there is power in the spoken word:

Do I believe god does what, specifically? I don't believe in a god who does nothing.
