There is this interesting Christian group on my campus that hands out literature that basically says that I need to start reading the bible and following its word or I am going to hell. After spending a great deal of time studying the history of the Bible, I am not so inclined to take it literally.
I believe in God and I even talk to him and he has never seemed as angry as this group makes him out to be. Does anyone else just take the time to listen and hear that voice or am I just crazy? Usually when I am in nature and feeling the unity of the universe I can feel that connection and it's like I'm in touch with this infinite wisdom and love. Suddenly my path seems clear to me and I see the world in a whole new light.
Whenever one of those bible thumper types approaches me and tells me I need to get around to acknowledging my sins, I have to resist the temptation to ask if they ever actually talk to God and ask him what he wants. All God has ever asked of me is to be accepting and loving of those around me and to do my best to make the world a better place by helping when I can.
