Children and Faith
    #882853 - 09/13/02 08:43 PM (16 years, 8 days ago)

As a child, I had the faith of a child, so to speak. I really enjoyed reading from the bible with my mother. At the time, I whole-heartedly believed in God. There was no doubt in my mind he existed. He was my savior, my one and only God that completed me. He was the final judge to things, and would judge me on my judgement day.

As i got older, i seemed to have lost this faith. The faith had lost me. I began to question, ponder, think. What am i believing in? This God that i cant see, touch, or smell... why should i mold my life around him? Some might say I lost faith because i became more intelligent. More inquistive. Maybe as a child i was more susceptible to suggestion. But what if i did loose something? I lost my innocence. Does innocence and faith come in the same package? In the bible it says to get into heaven, you must have the faith of a child.

I am the product of all the praying, church-time, sunday school, and bible reading that i did as a child. When was the last time you met a cold hearted true Christian? Not the hippocrites, but the actual people who do what they preach. The Johavas might be annoying and try to spread their faith onto you, but they are good people. I might not believe in God anymore, but i believe in myself. I would consider myself a good person, atleast i hope i am.
