What is God? Where is God? How do you understand God and do you understand God at all? What meaning God has to you? Do you know God? How do you know God? Who is God to you? Do you believe in God? How do you believe? Why do you believe? Would you rather say that you know God or that you believe in God? What constitutes your belief or your knowledge of God? Where does your belief or knowledge of God come from? Were your parents religious? Were you brought up in a religious environment? How did you discovered God? What was your first experience of God and how do you experience God now? Have you ever experienced God? How did it happened? Would you like to experience God more? Why?
Can you describe God to me? What God does to you? How God appears in your life? Tell me how God communicates with you? Do you hear his voice? Do you feel his presence? How? Do you pray? How and why? Why do you think God appears to you in such a way? Do you feel chosen and blessed by God? Why do you think God made his existence clear to you?
Would you agree that God reveals himself to you through your thoughts, feelings and experiences? In what other way, how and why? Do you identify your feelings, thoughts about God with God, why and why not?
What is the content of your faith? What evidence do you have for your faith? Do you have any evidence for the existence of God? Do you need any evidence to believe in God? What kind of evidence do you need to know that God exists? Can you prove that your God exists?
Is God important to you? How important is God to you? Why is God important to you? Do you believe in God because you want to receive something back? Do you want to be rewarded for your faith? Do you think that God will reward you for your faith? Do you think that God bestows blessings upon those who believe in him?
What is the purpose of your faith? Do you want to save yourself from Hell? Do you want to save your soul from eternal damnation? Are you looking for a nice, warm place in Paradise? Do you want to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven and be greeted as a faithful servant by your God? Or, perhaps, you don’t believe in this superstitious nonsense? Perhaps you have evolved further in your faith? Perhaps now you want to become God yourself? Do you want to reunite with your deity and become one being with her? Do you want to dissolve your Ego into the divine light which goes beyond all words and descriptions? Do you want to reach the eternal bliss of Nirvana? Do you want to extract yourself from the cycle of maya? Do you want to transcend yourself? Do you want to develop your soul on a evolutionary progressive path of metempsychosis? Do you want to be better, wiser and happier, is this the reason why you believe in God? Or perhaps these things are of no importance to you? If you are indifferent to all this, then would you be so kind and answer me – why do you believe in God? Merely to feel good about yourself? Merely to waste time? Or perhaps because you haven’t found anything better to do in life? Perhaps this is a caricature and if so my question still stands – why do you believe in God? Is it because you cannot not believe? Is it because it feels right for you to believe? Is it because you have believed all your life and now cannot abandon this old habit of yours without appearing as a fool or martyr of fate?
Do you worship your God? How do you worship God? How do you practice your faith? Do you practice your faith? Why do you practice your faith? Do you prostrate yourself before God? Do you bend your knees in humility and penance? Do you light a candle before a statue or sacred image of your God? Do you meditate like a mummified Buddha? Why do you do this? Do you want to feel better about yourself? Do you want to eliminate your fears? Do you want to dull your perception and desensitize your mind to the feelings you get? Do you kowtow before an idol three times a day? Do you avoid certain foods like beans, onions and pork? Do you abstain from wine and other strong drink to honor your God or do you honestly believe that these practices are purely of secular nature and that they are beneficial to your health? Do you restrict yourself from certain sinful acts? Do you observe the Commandments and keep the Sabbath? Do you restrain yourself from sexual desires? Do you perform any sacred rituals? Do you participate in holy liturgies and religious ceremonies? Do you fast regularly? Do you wear a cross necklace to protect yourself from evil spirits? Do you count the beads of your rosary to remind yourself that God is near? Do you cross yourself each time before entering the sanctuary of your God? Do you give thanks to the lord for your daily blessings? Do you read Holy Scriptures every day to rejuvenate your faith and to receive inspiration from his Word? Do you burn incense for your God? Do you sacrifice food, plants, flowers, animals for your God? Why do you do these things? Does your God demand these acts and these thoughts? How is God demanding this from you? What would happen if you would cease worshiping your God? Would God be angry at you? Would God punish you for your disobedience? How?
Would you kill another human being if your God commanded you to do so? Would you steal if your God would allow it? Would you castrate yourself if your God demanded this from you? How far would you follow God? Is there any deed that you would not dare to do to honor your God?
Can you imagine your life without God? How would it feel to live if there would be no God? Would you feel any different from the way you are feeling right now? Would you live differently if there were no God? Why and why not? Would your life be meaningless if there were no God? Can you imagine something that would invalidate your faith? Can your beliefs about God be falsified? Perhaps personal illness or a nuclear war could change your mind? And what about the death of your beloved one? If your belief in God would be outlawed, would you still believe in God? Or imagine if intelligent alien species from another galaxy visited Earth and proclaimed themselves as the one true and only God, would you still believe in your own deity? Or if, let’s hypothetically assume, scientists would prove conclusively that God does not exist, would you still believe? Why and why not?
