Having Faith Versus Seeking Truth

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Accepting the "Faith" of a religion is in many ways much simpler and easier that questioning the status quo to find out what is true.

Many religions have the "Statement of Faith" all written out. All you have to do is just agree to that statement and it is all done, neat and clean. Now, just every time your mind doubts and questions anything, just repeat, "Doubt your doubts, believe your beliefs". You never have to go beyond that.

Faith is a Journey

I have seen and read the "Statement of Faith" of various churches and religious organizations which they seem to hold up as the undeniable and unbendable proof of their faith. It seems that they are saying that (their) faith is, or has been, a result of very precisely following the formula of "read the bible, pray, go to church, accept Christ as Saviour, etc." The path can be (at least in their minds) be very clearly traced along a specific religious path.

A Religious Skeptic

As I write this in August 2012 I'm 61 years old, before I go on, let me say that when I was younger, I believed the traditional Christian dogma about: the Bible is the inerrant infallible Word of God, about the trinity, God, the Son, the Holy Spirit, etc. and so on. But with many experiences in life and my thinking deeply about what I thought and believe my whole perceptions and understandings have changed. I have let go of my irrational certainties that I was immessed in during much of my earlier life.

Adult behavior is taking on the challenges of life and working through them through to completion ... Adults are constantly working through many challenges at one time

Immature behavior is only doing what is required.

 

 

To say that this earth is anything except how God planned it to be is to say that God is not in control, that God is not God.
