For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that death will tremble to take us.
Here is the rest of my life stretched six-feet over my bedsheets,
and his laugh sounds like angels fucking on a cloud,
and he smells like sunlight after a long, night’s sleep,
and when we kiss IT IS THE SKY ON FIRE.
I hate that when I tell people I am a Christian they assume that I am this bible bashing preacher who hates everyone who isn’t a Christian.
Christians have such a bad reputation and I just want you all to know that I’m seriously not like how some people portray Christians.
I don’t hate LGBT+ or the community
I don’t hate sex workers
I don’t hate feminist/feminism
I don’t hate people who have had abortions
I don’t hate the equal rights movement or the black lives matter movement.
I’m not a raging conservative or Trump lover (in fact I despise him but that’s for another time).
I don’t hate non-Christians or people of other faiths or beliefs.
Honestly, the only people I don’t like are rapists, abusers, murderers, ignorant, etc. like you’d have to do something terrible for me not to like you.
I believe that Jesus came for ALL people. And he loves ALL people.
I’m not going to try to push Christianity on you.
I believe that the church needs to step up its game and, on behalf of Christianity, I sincerely apologize for anything the church has done to hurt you.
I hope that I have never come across as judgmental, hateful, or rude. And if I did please tell me so I can make things right and apologize
Again, I apologize for how Christians have been acting and I hope that you can come to me knowing that I am not going to judge you or hate you. I am a Christian and i believe in love for ALL people. ❤️❤️❤️ my blog is a safe place for everyone.
As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a God. I don’t think there is a God, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a God. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different God, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.
