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.
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.
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.
