Today once again I was drawn in by the words of someone who has endured “heart-breaking” struggles in their life, convinced that God/Jesus/Spirit is working in their life, etc. This of course I can doubt, but not in any way that would be productive to them, me, or our relationship of cooperation. If they cannot separate their belief from their hope, any callous words I use can only be taken as an attempt to restore their despair.
This why I from time to time like to remind others, as well as myself, that my interest is not in picking apart or exposing the foolishness of individual beliefs, but rather in testing the claims associated with God.
Yes I do find humor in anti-religious memes, but please take no personal offense at my amusement. I do not take your struggle in life lightly and I appreciate the fact that your perspective currently validates your beliefs.
