I stand at the ledge, looking over the abyss.
I am told …he is there. Jump off and you will see.
I ask, why can’t he reveal himself to me? Then I will believe!
I am told Jump off, and THEN you will see, he will catch you in his arms, he will guide your ship,
he will surround you …he is THERE.
But what if? what if one jumps off, and still doesn’t see?
that is where i was….believing in what i did not see.
The existence of God cannot be proven; it must be accepted by faith.
And yet…I have the ability to reason, to question, to desire to know and understand, I have the ability to use critical thinking skills
and I know that on any other subject, it is reasonable to not accept something on “faith” without evidence.
In fact if a human buys something that is said to make his hair grow, or his something else grow, 😉 or will make pounds magically disappear,
or a tie that is ‘blessed” and will bring good fortune, he is considered gullible.
And yet the “salvation” offered by christiandom has the same ring to it. a guarantee. life after death, get out of hell free card.
Cost? your life…but really…
the ability to believe what you cannot see.
Is this fair? or just? or….reasonable?
Why the necessary faith factor?
Would you marry someone if they promised that they loved you, but there was no evidence?
would you make a lifetime commitment to such a contract? Marry me first, then you will see i love you and will take care of you, I have seven million dollars waiting for you in a swiss bank account, i just need your name, address and bank account number for transfer….
(oh did i mention it is an email that was forwarded to you? )
Would you find it reasonable for a person to have questions?
