Challenging Religious Faith
I am not a believer in Jesus or God. I am not a believer in PRAYER. Nor the supernatural. I live a life devoid of angels and satan. My life is a life of personal decisions; a life of experiences; wonder; fear; a life of learning; mistakes and successes. God and Jesus have been ABSENT in my life. And I do not entirely blame them. They do NOT exist. This profound realization has made me focus on how to improve my life, and those of loved ones, rather than imagine some god or jesus is working miraculously to do me favors. I have learnt to accept what I cannot change. I marvel at life’s challenges and opportunities.
To all my friends, enjoy this season. Do not bother so much about whether Jesus was born or not, just have fun! Balanced fun. Plan the future, and reflect on your past. Most importantly, know that you only have this life, no afterlife. You will die, and all that will remain of you is how you lived your life. Make the best out of this one life.
