For those who deny or doubt the existance of God, many I have known or known about seem to have a fair amount of earthly intelligence. I therefor have a book that might be just what could spark in you some thoughts that just maybe God is. Especially the first part because it deals with the subject from the point of reason and logic. It can either be bought for a nice peice of change, or you can simply go to the link provided to read it for free.

Hi Bill,
So Great a book is the Summa of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Fathers of the Council of Trent placed two books on the Altar at that Council. The Holy Scriptures, and The Summa.

Really? Didn't know that about the council of Trent. I fully agree that the book(s) is just that great, so I am not surprised. One of the great things St. Thomas did was to not only put forth the common objections and soundly defeat them, but he put forth every conceivable objection he could think of and do the same with them. Tis not often we are blessed with such a great mind in the Church and the world.

I am an Assembly of God preacher's kid. The religion of my parents was impossible for me to swallow after I became a teenager. God was not as "tangible" or accessible to me as He seemed to be for other people.
I became an agnostic, believing that humanity was wrapped into delusions of God by their own belief in a "truth", perpetuated by society's belief in this "truth". It was my supposition that so many people believed, because so many people believed.
A few years ago, I started feeling drawn to return to God's house. I pushed it down as best I could, believing that it was my own loneliness seeking resolution, but it didn't go away, or I should say, He did not give up on me. So, eventually, I tried out a few different churches. Sometimes I only made it as far as the parking lot, where I would weep and weep and weep. If I did go in, I would weep and weep and weep all through the service. Still, I wanted to go back, every Sunday, even though I knew I would possibly cry in public again.
Please understand that I am not a person who likes to draw attention to herself, and crying in public is not my idea of a good time.
This is how I knew it was not me. It was not my idea to go to church. It was not my loneliness looking for companionship. There was no danger of me being drawn to the church for the "wrong reasons".
For about the first year of my return to God, I cried in church almost every time I went. Still, I could hardly wait for Sunday to roll around again so I could go to church.
Since then, I rarely cry in church anymore, but I sense His Presence intensely in mass, and in my daily devotions, and sometimes just because He wants to give me a present I suppose.
Agnosticism is not an option for me anymore, and I'm so grateful for that because: Jesus rocks!!!
Woo!
