Does God exist? This question for me is considered very controversial. I feel that if I consider asking the question I am questioning my faith. I immediately agree that he must exist. Those beautiful landscapes that dress the earth had to be created by a genius. What we really have to ask ourselves now is why are we afraid to question?
I had started attending Jehovah witness meetings since I was in my mother's womb. I dressed pretty and took notes. But one day I just stopped going. I felt dirty in a way. I convinced myself that I was a sinner and that God would no longer answer my prayers. When I wasn't going to the meetings my mother would sometimes guilt trip me. I would get visitations from the sisters who would proceed to giving me Bible lessons. I felt like a bad person.
Currently I am twenty three working adult. I see the world through different lenses. I believe that we are so preoccupied looking for answers we do not see what is in front of us. We have so many different religions who are yelling at the world that they are the right path. We often go with the one that best suits us. Which is the right religion?
1 John 4:8
"The person who doesn't love does not know God, because God is love" We show we know God when we love, He is love. Regardless if your neighbor is gay, Muslim, black, white etc we have to love them. It's going to be hard in this world that is fueled by hate and ignorance but let's start with you, Have you loved today?
