>For God’s sake….?


“If there were no God, there would be no Atheists”
GK Chesterton (1874-1936)

In the UK less than a third believe in God, whilst in the US only one member of Congress has ever admitted being an Atheist. So what is our relationship with God in contemporary society?

What does ‘God’ mean to you?
Is there ‘a’ God?
Are there many, or none at all?

What purpose does ‘God’ fill for you …if any?

    The God concept is useful occasionally though, to admit our uncertainty about the future – “God willing”, “Inshallah”, “Deo Volente”. I use these myself, though I certainly do not believe that there is a god “up there” who will take a blind bit of notice.

    >Thank God for that – someone replied to my God post! 🙂 I thought I’d put people off. I watched a bit of ‘Bruce Almighty’ at the weekend – Hollywood’s take on non-believers..?
