Why You Believe What You Believe

If you are a Christian, you should question your faith. If you are an atheist, you should question YOUR faith just as vigorously. If you believe anything else, you should do the same - ask, seek, question.

Your very belief or unbelief is faith in something, in a set of principles or ideas - you got them from somewhere. Do you know how and why it appealed to you?

What I'm zooming in at is obviously not what you say or think or claim you believe, but WHY you believe it and who you are becoming as you believe it. To me that is the most important first step that will set you apart from the others and keep you on the narrow way (unless you want to stay on the wide way, where the crowds gather - all hype and lacking substance or any real conviction).

Friend, there is so much MORE. Don't settle for what you think you know or what the media and the crowd tells you. If you are a seeker, you will find a way in life that is a thousand times more marvelous, meaningful, and challenging, than what you thought was all there is.
