FWIW, no one is "screwed" who believes (prepare yourself for me to get preachy). Faith requires nothing more than hearing the word of God and choosing to believe. It does not require church attendance, it does not require denominational membership, it does not require Sunday school or confirmation, it does not require confession, it does not require absolution, it does not require you bake cookies for the bake sale or put $$$ in the collection plate. It also does not require you to live a perfect sinless life or to live up to some imaginary impossible standard. Yet the benefits of faith are beyond what I could possibly write on a forum post and have you or anyone else perceive. When one experiences those benefits and blessings suddenly it's not a matter of choosing to believe it's a matter of falling to your knees and praising God. Faith comes from hearing the Word of God. True belief comes from experiencing the Glory of God. And once you have you can never deny His existence. God is good. ALL of the time. If it is not good, then it is not God. It is not about you, it is about Him and what He has done for you and continues to do for you. Believe and receive.Hmm good point. Well the way i see it it is either the green men or god and im probably screwed either way.
And those little green men, if there are little green men, they were made by God too.
