And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. King James Version
Believe: : to accept or regard (something) as true
a : to have a firm religious faith
People who really know me know that I have had me issues on believing that somethings are true. I have to have concrete evidence and then I have to sometimes have more than one kind of evidence. The older I get I feel like I have seen the world in an whole different light. As I think back to being a child I was always exposed to Christian believes and accepted them to all be true. I went to church, bible school, Sunday school, and my parents and grandparents taught me about the bible and to believe. I can not really remember when I got saved but I know that I am. I have asked God many times over my 46 years of life to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and save me. I do Believe all of this to be true!!
Then I having been talking my children to Sunday school since they were little. I have not always stuck to it because there has been times trying to make your child physically stay at church becomes more than you can bear. I remember praying to please God just let them make it for the 40 minutes that Sunday school lasted. Many time that never happened I would get discouraged and stop going to church. This did not only just happen during Sunday school but VBS, and Childrens Clubhouse.
I have belief issues with some of the Bible stories. I know "how do you believe in the Bible and then have doubt?" The Bible is always promoting "war" , Moses leading the people to the promise land then not allowing him to enter the promise land because of his doubt. This really scares me.
I want to believe!! I want to believe that I can be a better christian and believe that I will enter heaven. I remember my dad telling that 5 people can be standing in a field and only one will go to heaven. I want to be the one but I don't want the other 4 to be left behind. There just seems to be so much more to get to heaven than just asking God into our hearts and washing away our sins but yet does that mean that people whom drink (alcoholics) that believe in God ask forgiveness and truly mean it. Homosexuals that go to church, pray and believe?
