“Religion should not be used to solve human problems…Life, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.” – Humanist Manifesto, 2003
I am currently having a weekend giveaway of my book of memoirs Truth in Reason. Last year was a very difficult year for me. The year my entire worldview was changed, the year I had an awakening. Like a Phoenix from the flames I rose from the ashes of my past beliefs founded on untruths, and I have come out anew. It is my awakening.
Here is an excerpt:
“Oh God, please.
Father which art in heaven. I need you right now more than ever.
I seek for the spirit, desperately need it.
Why did I stumble into these essays tonight? Lord I have been trying my hardest these past few years to draw closer to thee. I have had doubts in the past, only a few here and there, but never of the validity of the entire church, not like this. Why did the church publish these essays? God, please take these doubts away from me, send me the spirit as thou hast unto me. The same spirit that I felt on my mission! Please God. I can’t have this happen to me. Not right now, not in the middle of transitioning into a new house and a brand new job, I can’t have this additional stress. Please. Send me the spirit to comfort me, something.
