I feel threatened by Christianity

I had a crazy aunt who told me I was going to burn in hell at the age of four. Fortunately I already knew she was a little crazy and my mom chewed her out so that set the tone early on.

I define as agnostic / atheist. I do believe that there is probably a superior being or beings out there; whether they’re paying any attention to humans I don’t know. Specific religions are humans’ flawed attempt to a) interpret the universe and b) control the masses. Was Jesus the son of God? Perhaps; hard to say from here.

What I find more important than the doors you walk through on a Sunday morning, is how you live your life each and every day and how you treat those around you. To me, a superior being will care more about the good in your heart than a bunch of pomp and idolatry. And Jesus had a lot of really good things to say; does he need to be divinely sanctified for us to appreciate his wisdom?

My best advice would be to go help serve at a soup kitchen, do a walk for cancer and save the whales. That is where you will find your God. And don’t fret the details.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
