We all have faith. We push the brake and expect the car to stop, we turn on the tap and expect water. This comes from past experience. There is something tangible.

Many people have faith in a god or Supreme Being. How we demonstrate and live out that faith varies. Some people without faith in God conclude we are being deluded or deceived because they can’t find evidence for the existence of God.

But why have and why do so many people have faith in a God you cannot see? Have billions been deceived? Who has deceived whom? Is there a massive invisible organisation that benefits?

We can choose: No God, and live the way society tells us, or let our want to believe in God expand our knowledge of Him and understand how we need to live a life that pleases Him. For this, His promise is His abiding presence with us and life eternal.

Argument: Choose no God and He exists, we lose everything. Choose to have faith in God, enjoy a rich and rewarding life, and even if he didn’t exist, we have gained so much.

Christians believe that God is our creator and provider. He shows us, through his Son Jesus Christ, how to be with him and receive forgiveness for our wrongdoings. Jesus told us of two commandments; Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind: Love your neighbour as yourself. So by allowing yourself to choose Christian faith you cannot lose. It will be a journey with ups and downs but you will see how good it is when people come to live a life with God. Local churches and courses like Alpha can help you explore more about Christian faith.
