Since God dwells within everyone*, everyone has a relationship with God, regardless of whether they’re aware of it or not, whether they believe or disbelieve.

That’s my 2¢ opinion, anyway.

*Everyone born with a conscience, anyway.

I don’t like the idea that conscience is related to God. I’m very secular in morality. The idea that we need God at all to be empathetic people is, in my opinion, unfair.

I believe God is love, and I believe that love permeates the universe, and us in turn. It’s an innate attribute of our being; our ability/inability to recognize the source is immaterial.

I ain’t the most loving guy, in case you haven’t noticed, but I like to think that I behave ethically and decently toward others at least most of the time in spite of my horrible character flaws.

And I believe those feelings ultimately stem from God, even though you don’t believe or care for God. But that’s only what my personal zeitgeist’s led me to believe; I won’t presume there’s any objectivity to my worldview.
