Calling all atheists and agnostics. May I ask you a question?
Okay, maybe four.
What do, or who do, you believe in since you don’t believe in God?
Is it hard to accept the death of a loved one?
Was there ever a time in your life when you believed in God, or in a higher power?
If so, what happened? Did you just grow out of believing, or did something/someone disappoint or hurt you? You may be as specific as you’d like.
Some questions will always remain unanswered. But some questions have never been answered simply because they’ve never been asked.
People allow hurts and disappointment to steal any semblance of hope and faith because they are either afraid to question their feelings, their situation, or the authority figure in their life.
Not asking results in not receiving.
Not seeking ends with not finding.
Don’t knock, and you’ll always stay on the outside.
And if you don’t receive or find, or if you find yourself always on the outside of a relationship with God, it’s not because there is no God.
So let’s talk about it. Would you please, first, ask yourself the above questions?
Then, if you still would like to dialogue with me, please do so in the comment section of this post.
