Is God dead?
I am a very open-mined Christian with beliefs that may go against the norm, but I do not care. I believe that there is a God that has a plan for me.Where does my belief come from? I get asked this countless times. I can sit there and quote Bible passages, state evidence of Bible events in history, but I rather tell one of my many stories. My older twin brother left church one Saturday and later that day, he was hit by a truck. It was a miracle that he lived with minor injuries compared to what it could have been. He suffered a concussion internal bleeding and the lost of both the senses of smell and taste. His memory was terrible. He was always angry and I started to doubt God. Plenty of bad things started to happen which made me denounce God. I went AWOL from religion. I was in such a drastic and violent shape when I swallowed my pride and asked for help from God. His response was immediate and I haven't looked back. I tell people about how I myself almost died, but thanks to God I did not kick the bucket too early. I understand I cannot persuade my readers to be Christians and run to the closest church for a baptism. No such thing should be done. I just ask that you think of situations you got out of where there was no way it should have happened. Life is a mystery, but it does not have to be.
