Asking the existence of God is like asking which comes first--the egg or the chicken? You can never have a concrete answer since it's a vast subject. Better respect what others think of it.

I dont question God's existence. Even when i am going through the worst situation ever, somewhere at the back of my mind i always know that there is a greater being looking over me.

Being born in Hindu religious family, I have been exposed to many stories about God's miracles and generosity since birth. But I have always relied upon my own experiences instead of those stories which I was being told.

And I am yet to find my answers.
Good for you. The stories you can believe are the ones that you experienced.
What should I do with my life?

I don't question the existence of God but there will be always some persons who question the existence of God. Discussion and dialogue between the two parties is the best way.

I don't question the existence of God, I know God is alive and he's watching over us. I would have questioned the existence of God some years back but then something happened to me that I can never explain and I know in my heart that it was the work of God. And there also some things have seen that neither science or history can explain

I was also at one time asking myself if God really exist before I got the revelation from one of the Mighty servants of God.

I guess this is a question for both skeptics and believers: what do you mean by "God?"
What should I do with my life?

Yes. I'm not religious at all, but I think that those who are need to constantly question their faith, to make it all the more stronger, rather than blindly follow. (Or realize there are other ways of thinking that are also correct!)

Yes I do, categorically,furthermore I deny the existence of any so called deity. There is no god, no heaven, no hell; this life is all we get, so enjoy it. Too much blood has been spilled in the name of religion, once you create a "them and us" situation, disagreement and conflict will arise. So take a close look at these shamans, dressed up in their finery, preaching at you and taking your money, all in the name of their "god". I am an atheist but humanistic in my approach to life, so I don't disagree with many of the tenets upon which most religions are based, but that's all simple common sense stuff and none of us should need telling to know it.

Of course, I think that every Christian, or any person who believes in a greater power, will question the existence of God at some point or another. I have definitely done so, especially during difficult times in my life. Where is God when it hurts? I've always tried to be the optimist and believe that everything happens for a reason, but this is not always realistic. Sometimes the reality of the pain is simply too much and we need someone to blame. Enter God.
