Who is God, and why do we believe in this God. For many years people have believed in this being so blindly. Their reasons for believing is almost somewhat mindless like a robot being told what to do. Not until people reach a certain age where their naive minds open up to the rest of the facts in life. So therefore, I believe that the reason why people, everywhere believe in God is because they are scared, selfish and want a sense of belonging in life.
For many years, I grew up in a Methodist family in which my parents introduced me to God. So, for many years I was suppose to believe in God because I was told to. Kids are such innocent creatures, that we must teach them to know how things work. And me being a little kid, what else was I supposed to believe in. My parents never told me about the different religions that also exist. Not until I reach my college level in my life, did I find about the different religions out there. They include Buddhism, Islam and many others. .
As time passed by, I kept wondering about what makes my parent and everyone else believe in God. And what I found was two things: 1) Everyone is selfish, meaning everything anyone does a deed for the sake of themselves and 2) Everyone is scared and, 3) everyone wants a sense of belonging. Week after week me and my parents would go to church at ten o'clock am. Of course, my parents are notorious for being late so we always arrived at 10:10 am. I would sit down and wait for them, then church would begin. As I sat and watch people in the church I would notice some people look as if they were bored and don't want to be there. This reaction would usually happen during the sermon part of church. Some look like they are half-asleep, some look like they love being there and some look like they are just there. My parents look like they are just there. And for me, it would be the combination of all three, depending what part of the sermon is happening.
