While I'm breathing...
I tell people that I believe in a creator when in all actuality, I honestly dont know if I do or not. I once held a pastors license, played in a praise band, held a position as a youth sponsor and proudly proclaimed christianity as my foundation for life itself.
I was repeatedly lied to by my church and began to doubt everything. There were so many unanswered questions regarding the bible and faith. I couldn't just set the many other faiths and religions aside and focus on a single one. I began to understand that we are what we know and nothing more, that every belief is nothing more than an opinion, based on a learned pattern.
How could one belief system assume any form of damnation onto another? If a creator exists, how is right and who is wrong, with regard to what the creator expects of us?
Who has been lied to? Who has been given only part of the story? Who was given the rest? Are all faiths nothing more than a crutch, a place to believe in something? Yes? No? Who got the correct information and who has been led to believe nothing more than an intricate system of fiction?
Who is responsible? I have no idea!
