The Day I Threw It All Away

That’s it! I’m tired of all the ideas floating around. I don’t know what to believe anymore! Who’s right? Most Christian denominations think they have the corner on the god market. If I would believe like them, then I could guarantee my spot in heaven or better, avoid an eternal fire where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Then there’s all the non-Christian religions. The Jews tell me I can’t eat certain foods. To guarantee entry into paradise, Islam wants me to kill a non-believer. Mormons want me to wear sacred underwear… the Church of Euthanasia wants me to kill myself to save the planet… and the Hindus have so many gods I don’t even know where to start!

It’s all crap! This is a common thread among many people at some point in their life. They get tired of being lied to and are found saying to themselves what the Apostle Paul said, “I count it all as loss!” …But that is where they stop.

Paul knew the difference. Paul came face to face with the Truth of Christ and realized that all He believed and known until that point, held very little weight compared to the new reality He found in Christ. Paul was able to move forward, rightly dividing the truth from religion.

There are some who, as their eyes are opened to deception, become upset and want to throw it all away. I get that! What are we to believe when our foundation crumbles? In whom do we trust? What is right and what is wrong?

In all that I believed, I knew not everything was to be kicked to the curb. There had to be some truth that remained among the lies. The only Truth that made sense… the whole message of Jesus and the cross… it was in front of me like a flashing neon sign… LOVE! It all made sense. I determined to make that my goal, my focus, my life. It became very evident to me, everything was to be put through the filter of love, so to speak. If something was based on fear, it was not love, because perfect love casts out all fear.

If you are fed up with what religion has fed you… if you are tired of uncovering lies and you don’t know where to turn… if you have lost all hope and find yourself critical, angry and hateful, I am soooo sorry. You deserve much better! You deserve love and truth.

Try and find that one thing you believe is still true. For me it was love, but whatever it is, hold tight. Please do not throw it all away. If you are questioning the existence of God, ask Him to show you His love. What have you got to lose? If you ever need an ear, I am here to listen. Send me a message.
