Belief vs. Bull

I hear a lot of people saying they lost their faith in God.

Or became atheist even.

All based off their experience with people or churches.

I have no problem with that.

What I take issue with is these same folks talking about how they make their own decisions.

Walk their own path.

Live their own lives.

And whoever doesn’t like it can be gone.

So what you want me to believe is that in every aspect of your life you decide what is best for you.

Except when it comes to your belief (or lack thereof) in God.

As a friend of mine likes to say,

I call bullshit.

Your relationship with God is personal.

Your choice.

Regardless of how others act or what they do.

So if you don’t believe.

Just say you don’t believe.

You decided in your interactions with Him that you didn’t believe.

Ok cool.

But don’t blame it on some “others” actions.

Because there will always be someone or some church that does something that is not living out God’s love.

People are fallible.

That is why we are to put our trust in Him, not mankind.

I believe and have my own relationship with God.

A conscious choice that I made for myself.

Even after experiencing first hand how some Christians act.

The hurt and disappointment felt at the hands of those who are supposed to love as God loves.

However my belief in God can never be based on what people do or don’t do.

Because at the end of the day they are just people.

One thought on “Belief vs. Bull

  1. was a hard determinist….Incompatibilism is the position that free will and determinism are logically incompatible and that the major question regarding whether or not people have free will is thus whether or not their actions are determined. .Traditional arguments for incompatibilism are based on an if a person is like other mechanical things that are determined in their behavior such as a wind-up toy a billiard ball a puppet or a robot then people must not have free will. Although the existence of such conditions does not directly refute the existence of free will the study of such conditions like the neuroscientific studies above is valuable in developing models of how the brain may construct our experience of free will..For example people with and related make involuntary movements and utterances called despite the fact that they would prefer not to do so when it is socially inappropriate.
