Fragen... question

If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
- Rene Descartes

Ich glaube das ist wahrheit. Ich habe das getan. Ich bin ganz sicher -- mein Gott ist GOTT!
I believe this is truth. I have done this. I am completely sure -- my God is GOD!
Ich danke Gott, dass er deises Freundinnen zu mir mitgebraucht. Jetzt, ihnen suchen die Wahrheit.
I thank God, that he brought these girls to me. Now, they seek the Truth.
