Some people seem to think I’ve gone off the deep end. I haven’t, I just want to think about stuff on my own. This person is always upset when I miss a Sunday at church, or when I’m afraid or frustrated with my faith, or when I can’t just accept Christian stuff, I have to think about it and then decide to accept it. I just want to think about stuff and not have someone just tell me what to believe. I don’t want to be the kind of Christian this person is. It’s just not real to me. Trouble is, I feel like I’m letting this person down and disappointing them. I wish they didn’t have to be so old school and would actually talk about real faith issues instead of just quoting a Bible verse, even though it’s the right thing to do 🙁 I feel like I’m not a Christian because I’m not like that, and I keep sinning, and then I get really worried and upset. Anyway, kind of a few topics here.

A lot of people think the way that they do things is the right way, and hat any other way just is not acceptable. Although this may not be true in all cases it has more truth than most people realize. Still our minds learn and process things differently, and in ways no one else will understand. It is perfectly alright to question biblical topics, and question their truth. Still look for support to your questions find the truth in them, and once you do you can go back and tell that person. You can say hey remember this topic that is shown in this bible verse, I found all these other ways to prove it that supports the verse. That way you can show them how your mind works, and you can explain how that helps you. It is good to question Things, you can gain a better understanding of the topic. On the other hand you need to make sure you realize the truth and importance of the bible as well. You need to realize what a great source it is in itself, just how spectacular, and life changing it is. Remember there is not just one way to be human just as there is not one way to be Christian, Christ created you exactly the way you are so embrace that for him. Don’t leave your questions unanswered,

There’s nothing wrong with you; don’t worry. If you have to decide and think about things before accepting them, that’s actually good- it means you take things seriously, and you aren’t going to be strung along blindly by people teaching the wrong thing. I’m the same way, and I know it’s frustrating, because it feels like other people have a stronger faith. It’s good to talk and ask questions about your faith. Some of the things we believe are very hard to grasp!
