    Not exactly. To believe in God is to have faith that He exists. If you believe in God you have faith in the existence of God. You believe God is real. You have faith. You are a believer.

    If some of his spokespeople are telling the truth, then yes. If they are lying, then he's in the clear.

    Re: Believe

    Dostoevsky says in his famous book "crime and punishment" "if God doesn't exist then anything is permissible"
    Do you agree this quotation?

    Hi,

    I have a question, is the sentence "I believe God" often used by Americans or English people?

    I reckon the second is more used but I am not English.

    Thanks in advance for you reply.
