The only thing that could absolutely, 100% destroy my faith in God is "proof" He exists. Faith is the core of Christianity,.

The proof is in the pudding (of life) in which He walks among us.
Faith is believing without understanding the how or why.
It just is.

On this, I am with him.

(My favorite apostle has always been Thomas--"Doubting" Thomas--as I will simply not take anything on blind faith. No exceptions.)

Comments?
Works won't get you to heaven; only faith will.

Allow the poor and helpless around you to fend for themselves while you tell God how great He is?

Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta believed that both faith and works are the path to Heaven.
Now she knows how great He is.

My idea of heaven is like sleeping. Quiet. I would not want to be praising someone for keeping me awake in an everlasting life
