Reflection Paper What is your believe in God?


Before the beginning of the essay, we should know What is God?, Who is God? , and Why we call who is God? .

In my opinion, I think God is the abstract thing that people are always belief when they have problems that cant solve by themselves. Others, God is a spiritual being, being more like the air or wind, combined with the element of consciousness rather than a physical being that you could catch and experiment with in a lab.

Other thinking, I don't believe in a god because I believe in humanity. I believe that each human being is valuable and important, that all have the capacity to develop into a Buddha. I believe that hatred, anger, jealousy, and spite can be replaced by love, generosity and kindness. I believe that all this is within the grasp of each person if they make the effort, guided and supported by fellow Buddhists and inspired by the example of the Buddha. As the Buddha says: No one saves us but ourselves, No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path, but Buddha clearly show the way. There are several reasons for this. The Buddha, like modern science, sociologists and psychologists, believed that religious ideas. Some claim that belief in god's power is necessary because humans, being weak, do not have the power to help themselves. Once try again, the evidence indicates the opposite. One often hears of people who have overcome great incapability

and darkly, through their own efforts and without belief in a god. Some claim that the belief in a god is necessary in order to explain the root of the universe. But this is not so. Science has very convincingly explained how the universe came into being without having to introduce the godidea. Again we can see that this is not so. There are millions of people who dont believe in god and free-thinkers, not to indicate many Buddhists, who live useful, happy and meaningful lives without belief in a god. Some claim that god is necessary in order to give man life-saving. But this argument only holds good if you accept the theological concept of salvation and Buddhists do not accept such a concept. Based on his own experience, the Buddha saw that each human being had the capacity to make the white mind, develop infinite love and compassion and perfect understanding. He moved attention from the heavens to the heart and encouraged us to find solutions to our problems through self-understanding.

My belief in God is based on a sense of peace in nature and reasonable that certain knowledge is natural in the human being, without requiring research except by way of supporting evidence, like that lying and killing are wrong, except in bad cases, like executing a murderer etc., also that people eventually get what they deserve is also upon the heart, and belief in a perfect being who created the heavens and earth falls under that category. Second, that every living thing, plant, animal, human etc. comes from something else, God is the seed of the universe (rational). Lastly, personal experience likes answered prayers, dreams etc. There are collect of evidence in its favor but no evidence against it except fast claims to lack of evidence for it so I believe with certainty in what I have countless own right reasons , rationally and based off of personal experience from a changing of angles to believe in.

In contrast of belief is more dependent on blind trust (i.e. atheism) then theism (belief in the existence of a god or gods) every was because they are dependent on unreasonable and counter own right opinion claims of scientists to fill in the blanks and explain these things like the bringing into being of the universe and things like the senses, willing movement, feeling etc. and merely take their word for it as though they could never tell a lie.
