All tagged Faith

I grew up believing that my former faith was rock solid. That faith can be certain. That faith was black and white. That faith knew all the answers to all of the questions. That faith was consistent. Yet, the more I read. The more I studied. The more I sought wisdom. The more I lived and the more I reasoned... I realized that faith isn’t any of those things. True religion isn’t any of those things.

I realized that for 10 years of my life... and possibly longer in my younger years... I believed, internalized, and preached a dangerous, destructive message. A message that has oppressed people. A message that has caused people to take their lives. A message that as subjected people to violence. A message that has tried to change people when they can’t and shouldn’t be changed.
