Why Do We Need God?

People often ask, "Why do we need God? Why isn't it enough to just follow our own hearts, our own conscience and be basically good people?"

To this I now reply it has been the following of our hearts without a care for God that has brought us to this place in time, a living hell for most. Hearts without God are vulnerable to greed and fear and lust for power and fame.

I'm not saying we shouldn't trust our hearts. The heart is essential to living a full and bountiful life. But God has laid out a joyous and beautiful path for us, and so without him our hearts are like a boat sailing at full mast in a great gale with no rudder.
