In an article from CNN it discusses Six Type of Athiests. They all say there is no God. I even have a friend, like all these famous people, that believe it’s up to the individual to come up with their own morals. Sometimes I believe this because they are hoping that if they don’t believe in God it will make them fell less guilty about the things they have done wrong and the guilt they feel. Of course they will say they are totally happy without a God. They try and find happiness in doing what they believe is good. Those are the best Atheists. Then there are the atheist that try to displace the guilt they feel with substance abuse. Those are the tragic atheists.
I have said this before that if I look at it from a completely risk mitigating stance. Or in other words I am trying do reduce the amount of risk. I look at it this way. What if there is no God, what will it hurt to try to believe in him and follow his commandments. Love one another, turn the other cheek, Don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t lie, and don’t kill. The world would be a truly better place if we all lived this way. If we die and there is no God there is no harm done. However, if there is a God and he has rules that we are to live by. Then I am going to be in some serious trouble if I continually say there is not a god and I am going to make up my own rules.
I believe there is a God, that he loves and cares about us, and following him is going to make us happy.
In a completely different direction. Paige finished her soccer camp at BYU today. She really enjoyed it and had some good experiences. She also made new friends and learned new things. I am happy it went well for her.
