Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

Becoming An Unbeliever

Pastor John:

Am I correct in saying that God does not believe in anything? Is there any scripture that refers to God believing in something? According to Webster's, the definition of "believe" is "to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so." Everything about God is absolute so it seems to me that God is not capable of having belief in anything. He already has absolute knowledge of all things in existence. He is beyond belief or believing.

Perhaps the Torah has scriptures that refer to God believing in something. I've never read it to know one way or the other. Guess I'm free to believe whatever I want to about its content until I read it. :) I'm sure glad about the things of God I know and no longer have to believe. I look forward to believing less and less about the things of God as time goes on.

Hi Bob:

You have read the Torah and studied it very well. "Torah" is how Jews refer to the five books of Moses (Genesis through Deuteronomy). And when you studied the Torah (in my OT classes), you did not see anything in there about God believing anything. He doesn't.

As far as your last comment goes, I guess one could say that the ultimate aim of a believer is to cease being one, huh?
