So, it was suggested by some friends of mine that I give “The Case for Christ” a read. A book about a journalist who absolutely didn’t believe in Jesus, etc and set out to investigate and prove that he didn’t/doesn’t exist.
It was a 21mth long investigation and while I don’t know the outcome, I can assume. You see, I’m a lot like the person that wrote this book. I’m one of those that doesn’t believe for the most part. I truly do want to believe but having experienced several major bad things in my life, my mom’s life, in other’s lives…it’s hard for me. I’m one of those that says, “If there’s a God, then why does all this bad happen?”, “Why did he take such a good person?”. Yep, that’s me.
So anyways, I’m on page 30 of the book and I love it. It’s the student version and easy to understand and it’s “real”. Meaning, it’s not preaching to me or telling me what I SHOULD believe, it’s giving me both sides of the story and allowing me to make my own assumptions and conclusions.
It is true that the older you get, the more you start looking for faith? I would love to hear from you…….except, no preaching please. It makes me uncomfortable to be honest.
P.S. The last book I read was “The Purpose Driven Life“. Enjoyed it a great deal.
P.P.S. Get your free sample of Fruit Roll Ups because you never know when you’re toddler will have a tantrum and this will save the day.
UPDATE: I was just informed by Lindsay of the 7 part documentary! I’ll be watching.
