You are not your house, your car or your job.
You’re probably not even a servant of God.
You are not your wealth or your diamond rings,
No my friend, you’re none of these things.
You are not a piece of meat for sale,
Nor are you destined to fail.
You are not a tool for others to use,
to be moulded, shaped and to be abused.
Tax-payer, worker, ant and consumer.
All of these things you are called by your user.
You are none of these if you choose not to be,
so learn how to choose, you learn to be free.
You are thought, you are action, you’re creation unknown.
You are free to live loudly or even alone.
You are emotion and choices are yours to be weaved,
The world is your oyster if you cast off the lead.
The thoughts in your head are the start of creation.
Please use them wisely, they are power not sedation.
They determine your outcome, your rise or your fall.
Treat them like children, learn to love them all.
And once you start thinking for yourself, not for others.
The world will respond, it will be like you’re lovers.
When you’re down, it’s down with you, it mirrors your gloom.
So think carefully my friend and all you ask for will bloom.
Whatever religion it is you hold yourself to, there is one thing that is universal pin that combines them all: If you don’t behave, things won’t work out the best.
In Christianity, there is hell (for the misbehaver) not to mention purgatory. In Buddhism, there is ‘Bad Karma.’ Islam also teaches of a hell, Jahannam I believe it’s called. The Hindu’s have Naraka. I mean, I could go on and on but you get the point. Religion, all of them, teach that if you mess up in this life, you’ll pay for it in the next.
Although I have many issues with organised religion, this is one of the ones that really gets my goat. Continue reading

In almost every single way, I am identical to atheists. Almost. In a moment I’ll go into our similarities but just for this second let me tell you the one irreconcilable difference between us.
I BELIEVE IN GOD!
Yes, you heard me. I said it in cap-locks and ended with a exclamation point so there could be no confusion about what I just said. I BELIEVE IN GOD! True, you may have read some of my previous posts with regards religion and such and wonder have I ‘turned a corner’ or ‘seen the light.’ The answer to that is no. However, it’s not quite that simple (or in fact it’s very simple but the world has been taken over by people who don’t like simplicity, therefore it is now ‘simplicity’ which must be explained).
I, just like the atheists, detest religion and cast it aside as nothing more than a human myth that has gotten out of hand and has caused so much suffering in this world out ours. Continue reading

So, this is more of a question I need to ask of you, than something I want to get off my chest. I’m beginning work on a little side project that I need some help with. Firstly, I’m hoping that anyone who sees this will please re-blog it, add the link to your twitter page, your facebook page, your tumblr, wherever. What I’m looking for are questions. (Please leave all questions in the comment section of this post) To put it simply, if you had one question to ask God, what would it be. Now think carefully before you ask. Just imagine that you had just one question. Just imagine that God showed ‘himself’ to you and gave you the power to have one question answered that would set aside all rumours and stories about said question from now on. Think outside the box on this one as well. I’m sure there are ten or fifteen questions that will always come up. Questions like, ‘Why are we here?’ ‘What is the meaning of life?’ Although they are valid questions, they will be asked, so try to think outside the box a bit. Now, it is not important what your religion is, whether you believe in God or not. So, atheists and people of all different persuasions, please feel free to ask your question. This is by no means a ‘Christian’ question. Rather a humanity question. So, please ask your question, please reblog this if you can, add the link to twitter, facebook, wherever. With much thanks. I look forward to seeing what questions come up.
