Does "God" live within you or outside you? How do you know if he has listened to your prayers?

This question applies to Agnostic faith too. πŸ‘ΌπŸ’ž

  • It's your conscience. When they say nothing is hidden what won't be revealed, it means you can't hide you from you. God is all the goodness in you. The part of you which knows right from wrong. You break you own mold and you're conscience will make you suffer, like feeling guilt for stealing say when you know it's wrong. If your good god is in you and if he's in you he's there because you keep his rules. If you break the rules you'll suffer until you are genuinely sorry for breaking them. Repenting for sin. If you adopt a way of life you must respect it's rules or what's the point?

  • If there is such thing as god then he must be deaf, because prayers are definitely not being listened to. I’m not even talking about myself here, I’ve never really prayed. But there are plenty of good people out there, people who believe in god and pray and still get nothing. People still lose jobs, their homes and families. Babies die before they even have a chance to live. People and their families are tortured by cancers and die slow, painful deaths. Lowlifes of this world rape children and bomb cities. People starve to death. Where is this god when stuff like that is happening to good people who believe in him?

  • God is the creator of time and space itself, and he doesn't exist within it's confines. He is present in every place and moment in time just as much as any other. He's infinite and eternal, so to say he's either outside of me or inside of me would both be inaccurate

    • You mean to say God cuts across living, dead & non-living, across the universe that "we" know, and since he is omnipresent he doesn't live in or out (of anything). Isn't it?

    • I'm just saying things we can conclude or know through the Scriptures are true, but how it all fits together we will never truly understand. We can't even understand infinite time, let alone an infinite existence and entity. I'm not trying to confuse you lol

  • Both, i see the concept of god very abstract since i could never know the true form in this lifetime. To me he is the source of positivity mainly love. So if you take it that way he is inside of all of his in larger or smaller amounts.

    And yes i have gotten my prayers answered before, i never have gotten what i asked for but i did get acknowledgement.

    • Genesis 22 is one, the whole god moving people to a land while removing those who lived there is another.
      The god i know cares most about love and freedom, he would never want sacrefises in his name. Killing something for the sake of killing is just not something i expect a loving being to require.

    • www.biblegateway.com/.../ is another even better example. This directly contradicts both love and free will the two things i learnt they value most. The devil on the otherhand i would totally see this do. Kill an entire town if one person refuses to worship satan? Seems plausible to me.

      Its things like this why i shield myself based on what my own experiences thought me, and not blindly accept what is written.

    • Listen please God don't answer just any prayer. Let me tell you the truth. God will hear the prayer of repentance first before any other. So you will first need to ask God to forgive and accept Jesus Christ His son as Your Lord and Savior. Other than that you are no different from the theif who say oh god 'let me steal something today.' God will hear you of you have a relationship with Him and you don't get that relationship by going to Church either.

    • @jake007 so you're the judge of what is Christianity and what not? I don't think so. by the way I was in both churches anyway. No difference. God may hear me or not. Anyhow he doesn't do shit for me no matter how much I do for him so fuck him.

    • Again if it works for you, good for you but your way won't lead everyone to their destination. It only leads you to your destination. It's nice of you that you think since it works for you it must work for others but that's not how life works.

  • He lives Within Me... he lives with in everyone I could tell you some stories that would blow you away how powerful your voice your prayer prayers is when you speak to God truly from the heart it has to be truly from the heart

  • Read the Bible for the best answers. The kingdom of God is with in you Soul (emotiins, will and mind). God built us to be a place where He can live. Jesus said; don't you know your body is a temple for The Holy Spirit? God the Father lives In Heaven, God the Son goes back and forth, God the Holy Spirit is in us and with us who believe in Jesus Christmas as our Lord and Savior.

  • We can't say anything about God because we simply don't know. We can't proof he is there we can't denie he isn't. We don't know the smallest thing about God even though there are many holy books on the world we can't proof that the information in those books is true but we can assume and I assume he is everywhere and nowhere and he listens to all our prayers in all places in all languages

    • You can actually examine the evidences in those Holy book and see which on of them get it all right and if you do that you will see that the Bible is the only one that van be trusted. For Instane, many holy books like the quran, Hindu vedas, etc got it all wrong based on latest scientific and Historical doscoveries. Like the age of the universe, the gestation period of women, the past, present a day future of the universe. Etc.. Only the Bible has it all right from Genesis to Revelation. God Himself said that the Words u the Bible were inspired by His Spirit and are all true.

  • Well, i pray to Jesus everyday and through out the day
    i hope and i feel i know he is out there and hears me praying
    Jesus is the Son of God and he died on the Cross for our sins
    this is my belief. So i would say God lives within me.

    Basically started the big bang

    It has to be some sort of time travel
    To start all this shit here

    So whoever did it
    Is god
    Maybe humans,
    Maybe any other race

    • God is not a thing but a Spirit and He us actually the Father of all spirit. You human being is a spirit in a soul, that posses a body. So God is not to be addressed with such adjectives.

  • Well, let's be honest. The whole concept of religion and God was created because people could not explain things happening around them. They didn't know why lightning, rain, wind, etc. Happened. They just attributed it to an Omnipotent, Omniscient being. Religion was needed as it gave people hope during dark times. People lived through adverse conditions just because they thought God will help them. It wasn't God who kept them alive but their willpower. Today we have something to replace religion, it's called science. And unlike Religion, it makes sense.
    It's high time we let go of religion and accept the reality. If not, then you are no better than the Americans who are trying to shoot Hurricane Irma.

  • I don't think God lives within you, but what does live within you is your faith.

    And it is that same strong faith and belief that guides you in life and builds a connection with God, and - from personal experience - when you pray for something with a true heart and clean intentions you will feel the presence of God or His angels (in my belief) and your prayers being listened to.

  • Having faith, I think base on one's personal beliefs with god night alter how they may feel, witness or even sense him/her. For some it's an internal feeling, emotions that override you with joy. For some it's an external feeling as if sensing him being always near or beside you, guiding you. But everyone is different.

  • I have numerous testimonies, I will not go there anymore after a loss of friendship due to me being open, many times I will be faced with ridicule, slandered as a dreamer, liar based on my own accounts, or a crazy philosopher, based on my views and principles that worked throughout my experience in life. If someone comes up with an issue, I would bring up the words of wisdom that I had verified to be true, they will hate me more for it. The most recent ones would be crazy shaman, clingy sick stalker. Those last insults were really hurtful. If I was a rock, it wouldn't hurt. About GOD who is omnipresent being everywhere including inside us, it is a very touchy subject among those who have lost faith or never had faith to begin with. I try to steer clear of religion talk. It only divides people up more which is the last thing that our creator wanted from us.

    • Any personal experiences, you would like to share please?

    • " If the request is wrong God says β€œNo”.
      If the timing is wrong God says β€œSlow”.
      If you are wrong God says β€œGrow”
      But if the request is right and the timing is right and you are right, God says β€œGo”.’'

      So just because he doesn't answers your pray that doesn't mean that he won't. You might get it late. Or you might asking for something that's not good for you. So if God is not answering it is also an answer to your prays. He hives a message by sayinh no not now. He gives an answer by saying no never.

    • My personal experience? I had many bad things in my life. I thought how come having illness is good for me. Why God doesn't cure me. But actually he was trying to tell me something. He was saying that l forgot him n only pray to him when l need. He wanted me to find the true way with this illness. With this illness l got closer to God. I was praying day n night. That was a test. Both to make me closer to him n to see if l will give up just because God is making me wait. I waited for years with pain. i prayed a lot with the tears in my eyes. And after years a treatment workee well for me. I got a lot better but not completely well. That was a way of God saying l did well. But l still have some things to do. My test is not complete yet.

      In this case, God answered me late. Because he was testing my passion. Still testing some things that's why didn't cured me completely.

  • God is everything. I am not separate in any way from God.

    God knew your concerns before you prayed.

    But God is not some cosmic fairy Godmother granting wishes. God is transformational power, not coercive power.
