Blogging is for thoughts and I open up my thoughts here not trying to shove them on anyone else......this is just me.....
(Note: I do consider myself a Christian, but in a non-organized way. I believe that the Son of God was sent to experience what it was like to be human, so God could understand his creation, and find a way to get us on a better path. I don`t feel there is anything wrong with a person stating what they believe. After all, is that not part of what makes each of us who we are?)
I don`t believe in Religion.
I believe in Faith.
Religion separates and supresses.
Faith brings together and frees.
Religion is man-made.
Faith is God-made.
I have always believed this and always will.
I believe there is a place somewhere after this life where man walks hand in hand with each other and beast is a companion rather than a meal.
I believe that if that were not so, we would not have been instilled with the longing for a better world.
I believe that somewhere inside even the most horrific of our human species, this longing did exist at one point.
Unfortunately the bad things in this world are due to man`s free will with a large dash of greed and bad influences added.
I believe someday, somewhere.....perhaps it`s on another planet, is heaven. Perhaps it will be here too, one day, that goodness will overcome evil.
There are far too many mysteries about life to brush it all off as unimportant to question. Only those that have passed on know. It remains the "Great Mystery" to us still in this life.
Humans, animals, plants.
Impossible for something so detailed to come from nothing.
Science reaches everyday for the answers, trying to prove there was no creator and
art attempts to teach us the answers.
I believe that only a "Great Artist and Scientist" could have created life.
I believe we will have the answers someday.
I believe every human being will be of worth to others.
I believe compassion and love will overcome.
I believe there will be no more needless suffering.
This is what I believe.
