We Have God to Thank
The online free dictionary defines God as: “A being of supernatural powers or attributes, believed in and worshiped by a people, (…) [and who] control[s] some part of nature or reality”. All the major religions honor one or more than one God.

Whether it’s out of doubt, bad personal experiences, fear or as simple as an atheist upbringing, many of us struggle to find comfort in religion.

The definition of faith is to believe without seeing. God is an invisible presence that becomes a stepping stone to believing in the spiritual world.
