Not often I write posts about religion… it’s a topic I usually deem as too private or controversial to discuss publicly.
But this blog has always been a diary of sorts, where I write about what’s on my mind. And recently, as I settle into my journey of becoming a Christian, that is God.
I have always believed in God. Always known that there is a higher being, something more to this world than can be explained by science or reason.
I was hesitant, though, to explore and join a “religion”. I still am, because in many ways, “religion” divides rather than unites.
As a Christian, I believe God is real. The Bible is real. But I do think religions are formed by human interpretations of The Bible. And because humans are flawed, this is has resulted in wars being fought, prejudices being created and punishments being passed in “the name of God”.
As a Christian, I belive that God is love and to leave the judgement to Him.
That’s why I pray for a world that has no wars.
I pray for a world where people can accept one another, regardless of religion, gender, ethnicity.
I pray for a world where we don’t harm one another, but instead help each other.
I pray for a world bathed in God’s prescence, a world of love.
