See when people say that to me I am reminded that I used to believe that but then there was no proof that my feelings meant God. When I ask people how they know that warm feeling was God its "Because I know." Just so illogical to me.

Plus we are always told God is good but no I am sorry why create a world with suffering. "God works in mysterious ways" just does not cut it for me.

Epicurus hit the nail on the head for me:

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
If becoming enlightened or an intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life!!

Yes, I have full faith on God. And I always believe there has someone who always moderates us. We are responsible both for good and bad work.
