We cannot live without God

God made us.

People throughout the history have been searching, trying to invent some kind of happiness for themselves outside of God.

What we call human history is really a recollection of how men and women have tried to find something other than God, apart from God, which would make them happy.
“‘Obey what I tell you. Do exactly what I command you. Your obedience will close the deal. You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours. This will provide the conditions in which I will be able to do what I promised your ancestors: to give them a fertile and lush land. And, as you know, that’s what I did.’” “Yes, God,” I replied. “That’s true.”
Jeremiah 11:3-5 (The Message)
And we can never succeed in this is because God made us.

He invented us.

And we need Him to be able to function, to be whole, and to be happy.
Jesus didn’t respond directly, but said, “Who do you think my mother and brothers are?” He then stretched out his hand toward his disciples. “Look closely. These are my mother and brothers. Obedience is thicker than blood. The person who obeys my heavenly Father’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”
Matthew 12:47-49 (The Message)
According to C. S. Lewis, “God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing”.

When God created us, He gave us conscience.
So it’s you who are in charge of keeping the entire commandment that I command you today so that you’ll have the strength to invade and possess the land that you are crossing the river to make your own. Your obedience will give you a long life on the soil that God promised to give your ancestors and their children, a land flowing with milk and honey.
Deuteronomy 11:7-9 (The Message)
This is the sense of right and wrong.

All through human history, everywhere we can see, there has been people trying to obey it.

But sadly none of us have quite succeeded.

When outsiders who have never heard of God’s law follow it more or less by instinct, they confirm its truth by their obedience. They show that God’s law is not something alien, imposed on us from without, but woven into the very fabric of our creation. There is something deep within them that echoes God’s yes and no, right and wrong. Their response to God’s yes and no will become public knowledge on the day God makes his final decision about every man and woman. The Message from God that I proclaim through Jesus Christ takes into account all these differences.
Romans 2:13-15 (The Message)

This post is part of an on-going series.

To begin, read Natural law. A post about the law we all have in our hearts.

If you would like to know what comes after read the post about Moral law.

Having read that, you'll need to know Which moral law to choose

If you agree we need to choose a moral law, maybe you'll agree that We need God  

After we have understood the need we have for God, it is time to research What is sin

Having accepted your need for God, what kind of God is exactly a Christian God? This you can find out about in What we Christians believe

Why is it so hard to follow Christian faith? What prevents you to believe in God?

Do not let yourself to be fooled by Christianity and water

Who was first? The chicken or the egg? Read the post Of good and band - who was there first? The chicken or the egg? 

If God is above everything else and did not create evil then Why God accepts the evil in the world? 


  1. I love the photos you post. I'm able to see a little bit of that part of the world, through your pictures.

  2. I love the real authentic photos you post. I too like to look into your world.

  3. Many people find their strength in believing in God, that's true. But unfortunately I also see many that don't believe in anything and that's leading to less or even lack of humanity in their hearts.

  4. I agree that there's an ingrained connection. Something that doesn't even have to be taught, though teaching def. enhances it.

  5. Those are great photos. I always enjoy looking at the photos that you post. Amber N
