Questioning Faith

 

Dear Brother Ron

 

How do you feel when a non-believer questions your faith? Atheists are everywhere, so how do you react to them?

 

Lazlow

 

Dear Lazlow

 

Since I am secure in my faith, I see it as an opportunity for enlightenment. I do not feel threatened by them. Usually they have rejected the false doctrines created by humans in order to gain control over others. They are often surprised when I agree with their reasons for non-belief. I then go on to explain to them that God is more than they have been told.

I explain to them that God lives within each of us, not in a book or a building. I explain to them that faith in God does not depend on attending services or performing rituals. God does not need your money. Believing in God means believing in yourself since you are His child created in His image. You have His strength and His wisdom. All you have to do is look deep within yourself to find it.

You would be amazed how many times these people reply, "Nobody ever told me that before".

 

Best always

Brother Ron
