Ever had so many ‘Why’ questions?… I certainly do.
I’m a Christian; in every sense of the word. I’m not too shy about saying that too. I believe in Christ’s, birth, death and resurrection. And ‘No’.. I’m not Catholic. Neither am I some self-righteous, judgmental, pompous, so called pious hypocrite that most of the us are seen as. Leave those nuts out of that. Unlike them I like the occasional social drink with friends and partying. I’m far from perfect and I don’t mind saying that.
Do I strive for perfection? Yes I do. But no one will truly be perfect; no matter how much we try.
Why do I believe? Well my answer to that question is that I’ve seen and experienced far too much to not to.
Why Christianity? Why not Buddhism or Islam? My parents are Christians, and they gave me every opportunity to choose my path. Just because you live in a garage, that doesn’t make you a car.
I chose to believe in Christianity because it makes the most sense; logically and spiritually.
I’m not here to get into a religious Debate about which one is the truth and better. I did not choose a ‘Religion’. I chose ‘Relationship’. Plain and simple. I don’t expect anyone to follow my view unless they want to.
Am I happy?.. Yes and No. I have just too many questions.
A curious mind is something that cannot be put down. Its our curiosity that leads us into all sorts of crazy stuff too. I always thought that if anyone should be able to answer the difficult questions, it should be God.
Sometimes I think that He must be pretty annoyed at me. Ever seen those annoying little kids that keep going on.. “Why..”? They go on and on until you just say, “Because I said so..”
Why does God allow bad things happen to good people?…
Why is this happening to me?…
Why wasn’t I born to a rich family?…
These are to just name a few. I have to face that fact that you can ask God all the questions you want. He will always give an answer. Of course, be prepared for the times that He’s just gonna say, “Because I said so…”
