I just believe that Jesus and his teachings have had such a profound effect on western culture, that I ought to know about him. I probably will still reject much of the Bible, but I can’t reject what I do not know. I was being a hypocrite about Christianity, and other religions, by not being more informed. Now I will be. 7 years ago
In my family their is every faith and spirituality but true christianity and it makes me kind of sick so I was determined to be better and quit all the things that were keeping me from christ and knowing god I go to church and read hte bible every day and all though most of my family dose not understand and is always doubting me I have an Aunt who belives in me I think and friends and am determined to move forward with christ and backward from the thigns that were holding me down and my family and ther negotivity 7 years ago
People that know me know I’m not the most religous person. Well most people don’t know me as well as they think, nor do they fully understand the personal attributes of religion.
In short some might say I’m a “heathen”, that I do not acknowledge thier God, and living in Southern Ohio this almost certainly pertains to Christianity, but this is not true and needless to say would offend me if it wasn’t for my ability to dismiss such comments, comments that are not meant to break me down or “put me in my place” but are simply formulated as a result of the fellow’s ignorance.
Nothing can strip my religion from me, my beliefs, it is in myself my every living mass that it is so. I believe in God, Jesus, everything I do, every action I perform as a human is directly linked to God’s omniscient plan that he holds for me.
But, I don’t claim to be as “holy” as I probably should be. Anyone who does… isn’t. In this fact I realize my ignorance of Jesus and his story, so my goal is to learn more about him. And yes, I know, the easiest place to do this is at church.
Oddly though I learn so much, not about his story but the idea, the feeling, from people around me. They believe in God and its not like any other fact they believe in, it is a choice, a way of life, so to speak. When the average joe says he “believes in God” he isn’t merely saying he believes he existed, he is probably claiming he made a choice to live as a child of God, that he is using his energy to glorify God, and in that- this joe isn’t average at all.
I want to understand, more thouroughly, the people who are often stereotyped as “holly rollers”. You cannot help but see something…for the lack of words, special in them. The drive they have to satisfy this choice they’ve made. They’re strive to follow this ancient rulebook of the good Christian fellow. You see, my assurance that I’ll go to heaven when I die doesn’t seem to be aquired in the same fashion as the “holly roller’s”, so I must understand the “holly roller” better to more clearly comprehend or “be at peace” (if need be), with our differences.
I’ll end this post with one thing I strongly believe in, we must all respect our fellow’s beliefs, for even if they are wrong they too require passion. 7 years ago
