I’m kind of going all over the place here. I don’t know about all of you but for my entire life I have believed in God and Jesus. However I have questioned if it’s like they make claims of in Church. I have always been unsure of what to believe. The various church’s I have been to have always been filled with people who seem to be doing what their faith told them not to do. Judge others, make demands of people and even the Bible itself seemed to have sections written to ensure women knew their place… so much of it felt more like how men wanted women to be and blamed Eve for taking a bite out of the apple, seemed to be too contrived to me, too easy since it was man who interpreted God’s word. I believe if a woman had been the one hearing God’s word the Bible might appear a bit different today.
I believe I am as close to being a Christian as one can be thinking this way, maybe I’m wrong but I don’t use it as something to use over somebody. Today it’s popular to mock and laugh at Christians, they remove Christianity from schools but have no issue with Islam in schools or prayer rooms in schools or public places that don’t allow a cross. People scream that this isn’t a Christian country ignoring the facts and also ignoring that the separation letters were not law and yet, here we are. I digress, by ripping out the values that Christianity brought to this country we are replacing it with what exactly? Government? Yes, Government… it is now the all knowing all powerful and it’s getting more powerful by the day. Since there is no God according to these masses Government fills the void and they seem very happy with that.
I don’t know why the people who are so intent on ripping out Christianity are so easily ignoring Islam as it gets roots into more places. If Christianity isn’t allowed in public places why isn’t this standard used for Islam? Rhetorical question, this isn’t the place for this question and I began this post by saying my entire life I have believed in God and got off on a tangent again.
I just wish I knew how I believed in him, I believe in Jesus Christ as well and in fact this is the only part I can say with conviction. I believe in them whole heartedly because looking deeply into what so many scientists say how we came to be, makes no sense, at all. Name one complex thing you can build without a plan. If you take lincoln logs and throw them into the air, do they fall into the form of a log house? If you threw them into the air a billion times would they form a house? How about a house that is self aware? This is too simplistic yes? The scientists would have us believe that we are a mistake. Yet here we are, the product of monkeys right? Yet monkeys are still here, are saber tooth tigers still here? Wooly Mammoths? All of those creatures have been replaced yet we come from monkeys and they are still here. People accept the explanation of Darwin and that’s it.
I do believe in evolution so Darwin is partially correct I think, heck I don’t have the answers but I honestly believe neither do the scientists. These guys can’t even get global warming right to span 3 decades and we are expected to believe they know what has happened over 4 billion years? Sorry, can’t do it, they have changed their minds way too much on too many things since just 1970 for me to follow their theories, you can’t even get 5 of them into a room to agree with each other.
The random end to a mix-mash of events over millions of years and complex brains that are self aware are the end result? Seriously? You believe that only one species would become self aware? Does that really make sense? I’m sure many will school me o this, please just post an opinion ok, no essays.
I digress again, September 24th Kirk Cameron’s movie unstoppable is making its debut at a local theater and we will be going. This is a man who started out an atheist and is now a man of faith. I have read some of his work and watched some of his videos and while I don’t agree with some of his words I think overall he is honest and has put out a movie that explains his path and I plan to watch it so maybe, just maybe I can get some clarity for my path.
Ronda knows what she believes through and through, she never waivers, I hope one day to be that strong. If you have a chance, check this movie out and let me know what you think.
Let me know what you think about my ramblings above as well, I know some of you have strong thoughts on the subject. If you have nothing but negativity to respond with, don’t. Thank you.
