Even though I have left the church, there were still a few verses that have kind of stuck with me even as time went on. James 1:6 says, “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave in sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.” There are many verses similar to this in bible, and they are used to prevent us from questioning reality. They were meant to keep us irgonarant, to prevent us from critiscing the things that probably needed it the most —the things we use that control how we go about our lives.
Religion has claimed too many things to be 100% certain. To believe that we are right, without even taking the nesscary steps to analyze our own claims is completely ridiculous and no that’s not an opinion, that’s reality. I have renamed my site to forever questioning(preivously know as priceless books) because I want to learn hard truths to the best of my ability —even if that means changing my own values. Challenging ourselves can be hard, but I believe that changing our foundations can be the hardest of all. It could mean the loss of friendships, activities we used to do, but it could also mean finding people who have also changed their beliefs and why. Things we used to think of as not important are now priortized.
I have changed my blog to help myself to keep an open mind. And anyone who is looking to do the same might find this blog beneficial. I do not claim to know things with 100% certainty, but I do think I’ve done enough research to have made a good decision.
I think that everyone is on their own path, and hope that this blog never comes off as culty in any way. Everyone is probably good at something in one aspect of their life or another. I think that using beliefs to put someone down is wrong. This blog is not intended to bullying people, but rather to give others my reasoning for why I don’t believe in a god.
