Is it possible that god is dead and my prayers go to void?

I like this way of saying that even though for something to be dead, it must of have been alive previously, and if god was infact alive, theres no possible logical way of killing it so its safer to say it has never existed previously.

Is It Normal?

  • Normal knowing Nietzschean philosophy, but extraordinary otherwise, what they're really saying is that they're atheists, they don't believe in God. It's not logical to Nietzscheanly kill God, but then again these people are deicides. God's not dead, he's kept alive by the few Christians our era has, during the glass age. But not to worry, it's not over yet, God will push all the right buttons telling you what you want to hear. Should you be post-theistic, you can snuff God out and suffer damnation, or you can be wrong and hypocritical going to heaven, therefore people should be right in telling me I'm wrong, then be wrong, suffer the consequences.

  • God is not dead, people are.
    The law is love, and the wages of sin is death.
    God is life, and we are cut off from life because of sin. We know this because the law is written on our hearts and convicts us. When we do something plainly wrong, we don't even know how we know it's wrong- we just know that it is. When we do something wrong repeatedly, eventually we won't feel connected to anything at all. We won't feel anything calling us to want to live.
    We can't just live again by fixing what we've done- the dead can't raise the dead. Only the living can resuscitate. Christ is the only one who lives, Christ is God. Death can't hold the sinless.
    It's difficult for many to see because many are puffed up with pride. We want the ability to save ourselves, we feel humiliated by our inability to do the things we say we want to do. If we can't get past ourselves, we die in our sins.
    We feel helpless and empty when we have to face ourselves like this. Then we try to fill up the emptiness with the lusts of the world. Entertainment, money, status, etc., it just leads right back to staring at that void.

    Every 'religion' will tell you to earn God's love/ heaven, but God tells you to believe Him even when He tells you He loves you- even when you don't understand what He's doing. As soon as you believe in Him, you are saved period. You will never know hell. That joy is how you fill the void.

    "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Eph 2:8-9 kjv

    "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." John 10:28 kjv

    "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" 1 Cor 15:55-57 kjv

  • It’s also possible the void is god.

  • People put god into a box. As if its either the bible is true or nothing created the earth. Idk why people think inside the box so much. If "god" exists it could be something you cant comprehend and not in our image. Probably some type of intelligence that we cant fathom. And maybe it is dead who knows.

  • I dunno about the void. Ask me about the abyss.

    • So turns out they don't actually go to void and i must have gone through atheistic and nihilistic indoctrination.

      • God knows what to do with our prayers, and not all prayers ought be answered.

          • If you pray for something evil, or unholy your prayer will remain unanswered of course. As well it should be!

          • Yup. But to know what those are, you need a 'God's-eye' view of the world.

            God may not give you what you want, but if you're asking for the right reasons (and not just treating him like a genie in a bottle), I can't imagine that that wouldn't please him in some way.

  • God does not answer all prayers. People often do not have a good understanding of how prayer works. Praying according to things written in the Bible actually seems to work. Praying for what we want often does not. People sometimes get mad at God for it but what we want isn't always what is good.

    • So that means just because many things go wrong in my life or in this world does not equate to gods not existing.

      • God gave free will. I believe God gives us the option to follow God's plan or not. Even if we choose to ask God to make a plan for us it is not guaranteed what will happen but it is the best overall option. If everything were perfect God would have to revoke our free will and because other people also have free will their problems will affect us as well.
        That is just how they work. God doesn't do everything. He gave us freedom but it is better to keep praying and read the Bible to understand more. The new testament has a lot of good advice while the old testament I see as more moral stories of those times.
        God will unlikely answer prayers for self gain but will more likely answer prayers that are for the greater good or prevent suffering. He doesn't usually answer them quickly either and will make us wait. Humans don't know what is best so prayer wont be answered to our own will but in according to God's will. Example if you pray to get rich it probably wont happen but if you pray away bad habits it probably will and you will have to apply your own effort as well.
