How to believe today?

Lots of people talking about God and the religion. Most of those people, like 99%, are hypocrites and want you to respect them because they "know" religion and stuff. If there is a God shouldn't He chose someone to represent Him and His religion instead of letting every kind of people to represent Him. Today, there are no people whom you can believe, as I mentioned earlier so God existence remains unproven. Well, there is a ton of papers and arguments but the people who use them (people who are alive) are not to be trusted. Where to find God, who will show you the path to Him when they themselves use "God" only to gain some worldly benefits.

If you have doubts about everything, how can you hope to ever come to a realization of God? Its a matter of faith, especially since nowadays, by proof, people mean what they can physically see or touch. Take love for example; love is a complicated thing that can be defined in various ways. You cannot physically see "love", but only through signs and observations.

I agree with you, religion is a highly profitable business and finances an industry of deceit to keep the show on the road. It has done so for millennia, Gods have come and gone but priests/clerics have always made money.

Religion should be something personal between you and God, it should not be a puzzle for clerics to exploit.

Sometimes it's not because they "know" religion and stuff, but because they'd like some assurance they are right. In a lot of cases, "In your face until you stop arguing" is taken as a victory. Not to be taken personally, it just lets you know where their knowledge/ignorance line is.

Too much listening to what people say the Bible says, the Quran says, not enough reading for oneself. Too many people asserting who and what God is, (and why you should give them your money)

How to find God.

The Prophets of old used to run out into a field screaming and ripping off their clothes, but King David recorded God as saying, "Be still and know that I am God"  Everybody likes to keep us bouncing off the walls to distract us from our own journey and join theirs. If God is the center of our journey, we should be looking within.
