Xiaoyao.liuProfessor: David W. SuterRSL 1112014 September 28Why Do We Still Believe in GodWho is the God? Where is he, and why to believe in him ? Those are the common questions people might to ask when they first time get knowing religion or faith. Those questions may have a correct answer or we may never know the truth. When believers talk about God, they will always use such beautiful words as much as they can to express him. He is the heavenly father, he is love, faith, justice, and bright. He is everything and everything is created by him. God just like our parents who loves us and watches us. If this all true, if God is really exist, why are we still suffering in our life? Some people may say it is punishment. But when good people are suffering while the bad people are not punished by God, perhaps we will ask: where is the God? Does he is real? People struggled in suffering, whining, despairing and even until they are dying, but in the end, they still will chose to believe in God. Just because they want to survival and their faith in God will be the force and hope in their life.Sometimes when you believe in someone, you may forget or just do not know the reason why, but you just deeply insist. Like Elie Wiesel, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, who wrote his own terrible life memory in a novel, name is Night, when he was a twelve-year-old boy living in the Transylvanian town . He is the only son in an Orthodox Jewish family that strictly adheres to Jewish tradition and law. His father is highly respected within Sighet's Jewish community. Eliezer was deeply believed in God at that time, he cry when he pray, and pray so many times even he didn't know why he cry and pray. In the beginning, his faith in God is absolute. His belief in an omnipotent, benevolent God is unconditional, and he cannot imagine living without faith in a divine power. Initially, Eliezer's faith is a product of his studies in Jewish mysticism, which teach him that God is everywhere in the world, that nothing exists without God. Faith usually effects our behaviors. If we believe in good, we will tend to be a good person, our faith will be the guide of our behaviors. Because Eliezer has grown up believing that everything on Earth reflects God's holiness and power and God is good, his studies teach him, therefor in his little mind at that time, he believed that the world must be good.However, the world is not as beautiful as we believed. It actually full of darkness, unfairness, sadness and evil. Good people deserve a happy ending, and bad people should be punished, we believe that the heavenly God eventually will punish the evil and injustice, protect the innocence and good, but if he doesn't? If the good people are suffering while the bad people are just enjoy their life, will you question the God, and doubt your faith? Eliezer's faith in the goodness of the world is irreparably shaken by the cruelty and evil he witnesses during the Holocaust. In the Night, Eliezer has...
