I recommend you take the time to read my non-biased (I hope) perspective.


Listen to that song if it isn't already in your head. Now, you may love that song, you may hate it, you may be trying to find a reason to hate it, or you may be trying to find a reason to love it. For the people who love the song, you may have come to love it for a reason; a point in your life, an event (party) that you look back on with fond memories. You may have a song that was a catalyst for change in your way of thinking, or something.

You may not have considered it, but other people are a person as well, much like yourself, yes? Think about how much of a bitch life is for a sec. Go on! Yeah? Relating to other people a bit there now? Nice. Let's move along then.
The decision people make to put their faith in something is based off what they get out of it. And this is something that you CAN NOT simply decide or push someone into. The expectation that another person should believe in something and accept it because of what they got out of it is quite silly. Moreover, people should be encouraged to, like my analogy with the song, go to a youth group or church. Don't bloody watch a couple youtube vids or visit a forum discussion because that's not experiencing something... It's like how you won't laugh at half of Arj Barker's jokes on the Comedy Channel, and then you turd your pants with laughter when you see him live or how you'd be totally okay with passing out in the middle of a crowd of 10,000 people when you're seeing your favourite band live. Cause dey like 10m away ERR MA GERRD. You need to find a friend, get your ass to one of these shindigs of choice, and then listen to someone preach, see what happens that particular day, whether anything moved you, stop being biased for one second, and giggling to yourself over aetheist memes and have an open mind.

If you're 'doon it right', you're gonna leave with a better understanding of this religion thing. That each of those people are going through the same bitch of a life as you, and that at some point, this Christianity thing came up, and something about it changed them.
The existence of God, and the death and resurrection of Jesus may be put to a matter of 'faith', but the miracles from it are REAL, the way it has helped people for the better is as real as you and me, and that's what I like about the idea of Christianity. I am one of those myself... Now now, stop putting me in that box entitled "Christian Stereotypes", remember, relating... You'll probably find, that if you experienced some kind of help through something, or resolution, and a Christian friend had a hand in it, or something "happened" when you went to a church service, that it starts to all seem a lot more real to you.

Dunno. Just something to consider. It makes sense to me, might make sense to you guise :D


Someone remind me to read this later.
