God does exist . I know that god exists because i know " what " god is . To know what something is , is to understand that thing . The more you know about a thing , the better you will understand it . God is pure energy . And god is more than that . And knowing this alone about god lets me know that god is real . And this knowledge also lets me know that many religions do come from the true god . And no , that does not mean that men have not tried to manipulate true religion for personal gain and to control others . Remember , a gun is only a threat in the hands of fools and the wicked . And both are known by their works . So it is also with religion . Religion is only a threat in the hands of fools and the wicked . And both fools and the wicked , are known by their deeds .
