What are your thoughts about god?
David Hayward shows us a Christian’s “clearest thoughts about god“:
Funny, I think I feel the same way…
Interesting that he looks sad to be unable to have clear thoughts about God.
The adds that run in your RSS feed as seen by Google Reader are pretty funny. The one with this post is for a trip to Israel to find your christian roots.
@MikeTheInfidel: When most people are quite content with not thinking about God? Yeah, I agree.
I don’t really think about God much. Obviously, the concept of God comes up a lot because it’s everywhere. However, I think of God in the same way that I think about superstitions… sure, when a black cat walks by me, I remember that lots of people think that’s bad luck, but I still think it’s silly.
My thoughts about god(s) became much clearer after I became an atheist.
But God is all in the mind. Surely?
Actually, the thought bubble is not empty. I see a crucified man betrayed, denied, and abandoned by his followers. The guy never amounted to much. And his kingdom ended with a whimper. But in that suffering, weak, despised One I see God. Then something happened called Resurrection.
Yet as a Christian I deny the Resurrection of Christ by…
not feeding the hungry
getting into stupid arguments with Pat Robertson
lashing out against my enemies instead of loving them
acting like being a Christian is a privilege that makes me better than others, yeah, right, duh!
worrying about whether people “believe” the same way I do, as if I need others to go along with me otherwise my faith my crumble apart
So, in fact, the situation is worse than the empty bubble. Because there is a crucified man in the bubble. How foolish is that!
I am learning not to be threatened by others who “believe” differently. And I really appreciate the “friendly ones” who believe differently. Peace!
