God or No God
Sometimes it came to my mind, “what life is with God and without God?”
I tried to reflect as God believer. How it affect my daily lifestyle. I grown up as always go to church and praying to God as our Heavenly Parent. In my heart and mind I believe there is the existence of God.
However one day, I experience that there is no God, I could not feel the existence of God. I came to a question, “How about if I live a life without God?”
And now I can differentiate the person believing in God and not believing in God.
First of all, if you believe in God no matter what the name of God, what is your relationship with God. The first attitude that I have is afraid to commit sin or mistake which God can punish me or I create misfortune in my life, creating hell in my life.
If I don’t believe in God, it’s very easy for me to commit sin or mistake.
Secondly, if I believe in God as our Heavenly Parent means all human being is my brothers and sisters who I need to care, to give love and to forgive.
However, if I don’t believe in God, means human being has no value at all. My relationship to other human being has no meaning; the value of life is nothing. You easily mistreated, harm others life and even its easy to kill a person.
Thirdly, If I believe in God. No matter what trials, difficulties, misfortune in life. I have this attitude of patience, forbearance, endurance that I could survive in life.
However, if I don’t believe in God. When trials, difficulties, misfortune in life will easily lost hope thinking want to disappear in life, committing suicide.
In another perspective of life that the person don’t believe in God however knows what is good and evil, what is the right or wrong decision, how to take the right or wrong path. This is what we call conscientious people. This is people who are following their conscience, person with a sense of right and wrong or moral senses.
How about the existence of God? God really exists?
As a landscape photographer, you are concern of every detail of the subject you are shooting. I was able to understand the beauty, the composition, framing, colors, effects and wonders of nature.
It passes in my mind and heart, the emotion of nature that can be felt to the beauty it possess. The brilliant, harmony of colors of nature that reflect the psychological structure of creation, even in the adversity of environment you can see the amazing wonders of life. I could understand before I came to these beautiful places there is already an artist who designs this landscape with beautiful, peaceful, loving heart.
This creation, this nature is not come out accidentally. It is carefully plan, deeply think of its design beforehand. There is a big mind, a big heart that made it, an invisible artist which is God itself.
Also you can appreciate the perfect detailed of subject you shoot in nature which that invisible artist has this perfect personality which is God itself.
Additionally, as parents having children, you can understand how life was form, starting as blastocyst, then maturing into an embryo and then a fetus. It’s unbelievable; man and woman, husband and wife can create another human being. Not only human being but also plants, animals and all creation can regenerate another life. How amazing it is, life is not come out randomly or accidentally. It has a principle or laws to follow.
We can conclude, before the universe came, there is an invisible scientist already formulated the existence of life and how life will be sustainable and regenerate which is God itself.
As express in the bible Roman chapter 1:20 “Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived in what he has made. As a result, they have no excuse;
It means all creation is the visible manifestation of God invisible nature or personality. We can see and feel the existence of God by observing the creation that He made.
