In God we trust Beta

"God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages." Jacques Deval

Why do people trust God? Because they feel loneliness sometimes? Because they cannot trust anyone around? Because God never betrays them? Why? It is about "hope for the best, prepare for the worst." God always gives people the best. During the toughest times, God is always there to support. God is everywhere, and He knows everything. God is omnipotent, and therefore is totally reliable. But... really!?

Can God create a stone so heavy that he cannot lift? Either God can create such a stone or he cannot. If he cannot, then there is something that God cannot do, and therefore He is not omnipotent. If He can, then there is also something cannot do, namely life the stone, and therefore He is also not omnipotent. Either way God is not omnipotent. A being that is not omnipotent is not God. God, therefore, does not exist.

That is the paradox of stone.

If God does not exist, then how do people trust something not even in existence?


"Then Jesus said to Thomas, 'Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.' Thomas said to Him, 'My Lord and my God!' Then Jesus told him, 'Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.'" John 20:27-29

Positive touchpoint experience is not about seeing is believing, but it is more about trust.
