Interesting conversation. You guys are really sharp.

You will have to pardon my simple-mindedness when it comes to faith.

My certainty in God lies in the uncertainty of why existence is manifest at all.

I believe this is the ultimate question to which there can be no answer. Man will come to understand how and what, but not why. I guess the "why" is answered through faith. When it comes to God, it is a joy for me not to be sure of anything except that He is. It is my sighted faith that I don't need blind faith to be one of God's children. If my belief system does not reflect the nature of God, at least I tried. Will He hate me for using my brain to the best of my ability with the information available to me?

Hell is a hell of a thing to have to believe in. I think it is man's pretentiousness to believe that he can know the mind of God so as to know what is sin and what is punishment.
