IS "FAITH" RELEVANT TO ME?
This is indeed a good question! Actually, it is healthy self questioning. I well remember answering “No”
to it in my own days of atheism. It took me a long time to
come around to testing it out for myself ... to get my head into that
place where I was at least ready to believe. You see, this feeling, which was a kind of ‘missing something’ there inside me, started to prompt questioning thoughts.
So, my first step was to look for evidence of God’s existence. I needed to know how to believe in him. I actually went to Church. It
turned out to be less challenging than I had thought too. I read the
Bible. Then I applied this stuff to my life: looking for evidence of
his presence in the Church and in my everyday life. And I found my fellow church goers and church leaders were there ready to answer my endless questioning.
surprised myself, I admit it. Even in my early days of faith I came to
prove beyond reasonable doubt to myself that he actually was there. And
as my relationship with him grew deeper he became all the more evident.
SHOULD I EVEN CARE WHETHER GOD EXISTS?
The question above is all about whether there is anything in faith for you, even if God does exist. First off, from my point of view, I’ve got to tell you I was pretty
surprised when I began to find faith was ‘working’ for me. I mean, not
only was I building a body of evidence, that indicated God did actually exist,
but I was also getting a ‘return on my investment’ from that faith.
Yes, I am saying faith, in a Christian sense, can actually deliver positive outcomes
within our individual lives. Greater contentment with life is just one
of the spin-offs from Christianity. Probably the greatest outcome
that I found though was ‘personal freedom’. Not surprisingly it does come with a cost, which is explained, but my-oh-my the results are worth it!
And yes, he can be there assisting in every aspect of our lives. Just trust him: during day to day life, in the workplace and even during those hard times.
Just like me, I am sure you will find that it is a good idea to ‘care whether God exists’!
DOES GOD, IN TURN, CARE ABOUT ME?
Now all manner of doubts
plaque us, in relations to faith, whether beginners or not. Firstly,
there is no problem with having doubts. In fact they actually lead
to ever-growing faith if they are confronted and duly examined.
one of those doubts, that we can hold, is that we ourselves might be
too insignificant to be bothering God. The Bible makes it clear that
the opposite is the case, and it does not matter what we have done
wrong in our past lives either.

My name is Pete (alias Whiz).
I am in my late sixties and a retired Internal Auditor ... of all
things. Indeed a lot of what is written on this website about “believing in God” and “faith”
is the result of one big living audit of mine performed over a thirty
year period. I have found that it all works, just as countless millions
before me have discovered, and I just want to share ‘how’ with you.
