Why do you believe in God?

A friend once asked my why do I believe in God. My instinctual answer was, “I don’t know because I just do.” That answer is not clear enough. That answer takes for granted that some people will not understand the “I just do” part. That answer takes for granted that there are some who are looking for holes in my belief in the existence of God and the “I don’t know” seems to provide that gaping hole . “Of course you don’t know why you believe because you have been fed what to believe. You have been fed God,” is what the detractors would use to plug what they see as a hole. I had to think about this.

I tend not to venture out of my favorite genre too much; however, on this occasion, I am so happy that I did. *** Tananarive Due Website *** I picked up Tananarive Due's My Soul to Keep in the middle of a very difficult grieving process and actually had to put the book down not because it was not captivating though. I had to put it down because where I was in my grieving, reading My Soul to Keep proved to be too disturbing. So, once I was in a better place, I could not wait to finish the novel. Mind you this book came out in 1997 and I am just now discovering it, but what a great find! The main character is Dawit, an African immortal, who breaks all the rules to keep his beloved family intact.
