To all of my Christian friends in the world (you know who you are). I may say things that may offend you, I am sorry ahead of time.
I would never say anything to offend you as a person so please don’t take it personally. My views of religion (christian and otherwise) may be somewhat extreme to most.
Having said that, I believe that my beliefs are based in and come from truth. I have no problem with you following your beliefs, it does not bother me and I do not think less of you in any way.
Please just understand that I do not and will not believe the same as you do. It is my journey that has brought me these understandings and beliefs. I accept you as you are, I would hope that you can do the same for me.
I am also willing and able to back every one of my beliefs with solid proof should I be asked. I try not to discuss religion with my friends because I want my friends to remain my friends and I understand that it may be hard for some to accept my views (even when presented with factual truth). Therefore I do not always share my views.
I also remember how hard it was for me when I discovered the truth and how it felt to have my world crumble around me. I do not wish this on anyone and that is why I refrain from voicing my views and beliefs.
If you ask me (about my beliefs) I will tell you but it will be reluctantly. I believe that faith in something, whatever it may be, whether it is true or false, is an integral part of the human condition and I do not want to falter anyone’s faith. I accept your faith and your belief, that doesn’t mean I agree.
So, please forgive me if I do say something that offends you, it is not my intention, ever.
If you want to know my religious views, peruse my blog, they are not what they once were.
I am not Atheist and I am not Religious. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. LOL
