BrendanB BS: Church joins real world (612* d) RE: BS: Church joins real world 30 Aug 14

No Musket, I am not confusing verbal violence with exasperation. All you have on a forum such as this is words. You favour the aggressive and the scatological. When I read some of your posts I am alienated even though I may agree with your premise. Some of your posts read like naked hatred of people who have a religious faith. I suspect that you will deny that but your words undermine any such disclaimer.

I have a profound distrust of fundamentalism, if for no other reason than it denies the exercise of intellect. And yet I believe in God. This is not a choice, it just is. I struggle to align what I cannot help but believe with what my intellect leads me to know to be true. The Bible is an inspiration but not inerrant. It is not history. It is more a challenge which demands that one engages with it without accepting it as incontrovertible. My spiritual life is essentially a struggle; certainty must be nice but I don't have it. I don't claim to know how others should live their lives, I just wish them well. Nor do I seek to impose my beliefs on anyone else. You sit in judgement on others. You may take exception to that statement but some of your posts read very much like that.
No one has all the answers, not even you. So mock away Musket, mock away.
