I need a more clearer explanation of how does god help you in life.
Do you think any god can do, or just christian god?

I love to hear you guys say "god is in all of us", but when it comes to relying on yourselves, you suddenly "can't go without", what happens then?

To me, it's rather fear based assumption, nothing more, nothing less.
Really, take away your trinity, what's left? Who to rely on, who to believe, who to trust? Nothing left but yourself to deal with... but you can't, or can you?

Isn't it ironic?

YOU might not need GOD, and that is fine, it's your right.

I however need GOD, and that is my right.

We all need the freedom to choose.

my life goes much bigger, better, grander, smoother WITH god than without.

my life is more fun and rich and satisfying and fulfilling WITH god than without.

there is more joy and love and peace and harmony and bliss and ecstasy and rapture in my life WITH god than without

there are more "goodies" in my life WITH god than without

Is that a "need" for God? No, for me it's a desire to live a richer, more pleasing, more fun life. I am a practical person. Through trial and error, I've experimented and discovered that life without god is flat. I prefer fizz in my life, so i go through it with god.
