My religious beliefs are constructed according to that logic, from a few foundational concepts. At their most basic, there are three.
1. There is a God.
2. God created this universe.
3. God communicates to humans through visions and spiritual experiences.
I can't prove them. My only evidence for them are said spiritual experiences, and that gets a bit recursive. I recognize that I may be wrong. But I prefer to believe these things are correct. And if they are, several things immediately follow.
( This is long.Collapse )
So here I am, building some kind of personal little religion on my own. I'm having to go back to just those first three things and start all over again. I currently have no idea what I believe about a lot of stuff. It's a weird, unsteady, standing-on-quicksand kind of feeling.
But I'll take it over letting myself be misled by leaders who put bigotry and obsession with sin ahead of love any day.
