so then who created god? I can't understand how one could believe that god was just magically here and the creation of earth in 7 days took place.
God always has been and always will be. thats what the Bible says" its too hard to wrap our heads around, were only human. I hate to use this as a reply, because I know it sounds ridiculous to someone who doesn't have a strong belief that God does exist. I have only been a Christian for 4 years. before that, I believed in nothing. I lived my life based on the thought that I was just supposed to be happy and had nothing to rely on. I can tell you straight up right now that it has made a dramatic change in my lifestyle. I have a purpose now. The biggest FACT that proves that the Bible is real is right before your eyes, our world is in a much darker place than it has ever been...
Matthew 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes."
I guarantee this is what is happening and what is going to continue to happen from now until forever, and it's not getting any better.
Also, what you said about our government is also true. they say those things to get more followers and then lead people away from Christianity
Matthew 24:11 "And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many."
I hope this helps you see more of what we believe and why we believe it, we try not to be ignorant but sometimes, it comes across that way because we believe opposite things.
