  1. Hi, a few friends of mine told me about your blog so I finally decided to check it out. I understand that you come from a Christian family and have been raised that way since you were a little kid but than you grew up and decided to change your belief and say that God doesn’t exist… I’m not here to judge but I just wanted to ask How could you say that God doesn’t exist? If God doesn’t exist than please explain this to me.. A close friend of mine from childhood developed a spine problem as he was growing up. One of his legs was shorter than the other by a few inches. This caused him to limp and stop growing. For years his family prayed but they didn’t receive an answer. Finally one day he went to a church service and there was a really strong prayer the pastor asked whoever wants to be healed come up to the front. My friend felt Gods presence and he ran to the front the pastor came and layed his hands down on his head and my friend was filled with the Holy Spirit and felt like an electric shock went through his body and at that moment his foot grew and became the same size. His sister was there and when she saw she fainted. It’s a true miracle from God. How can you deny God when he gave you life. God is alive. One day we’re all going to stand before him and what will you say than when you come face to face with him. I’m nobody to judge I’m not perfect, I’m just a regular human being. But, I think you should look into Christianity before its to late. There is a heaven and hell. Jesus loves you no matter what.

  2. i think i may be coming to the close of my faith – feeling ok.

    christian ‘experiences’ with others and in churches. finally – a book, i questioned – with poor responses from an author.

    yet when i think of Jesus i find him the most beautiful of all people – ‘if’ there is a God – then this is him in the flesh… but i think i may be coming to a close… anything like this in your experience?

    i like your blog on hebrew cosmology – i look forward to reading the rest in due course… Tinker

    • Howdy Tinker,

      That reminds me of Chuck Templeton, who was formerly the ministry associate of Billy Graham, but turned atheist after attending Yale Seminary. Chuck spoke of “missing Jesus” in a sentimental way. https://blogs.thegospelcoalition.org/justintaylor/2013/05/09/charles-templeton-missing-jesus/

      I understand it as a remnant of being told all of these marvelous stories about Jesus in our youth, I (and likely you) sincerely loved and admired the character of all these stories. And growing up to realize this character is not likely real is a burden in many way, every once in a while I have a flare of nostalgia and wish this character were truly real. Alas, I have seen nothing thus far to make me believe that, though I still wish it were all true from time to time.

      Its kind of like Neverland from the story of Peter Pan, once you reach a certain age, you can’t believe in it any more, but you still miss that moment when you did believe, and you still wish it were true.

      All the best to you, keep seeking truth, whatever it is.
