Oh contrare my friend!
Pictures like this remind me exactly how incredible God is. He spoke of our creation in Genesis and spoke of the infinite universe that is his
creation or the heavens if you will. This was writing thousands of years ago when people were much more primitive. Hell, 500 years ago we knew the
earth was flat, 400 years ago we knew the center of the universe, 300 years ago we knew the Milky Way Galaxy was absolutely massive and nothing could
compare. God knew all of this and spoke of his infinite universe before we even knew about other planets in our own solar system let alone our solar
To be a single living thriving planet amongst a seemingly endless universe or even a multiverse and to have God speak of his creation of our world
thousands of years ago and for you to simply say how ridiculous religion is... well my friend I believe it is you who is completely ridiculous!
We are animals, we are beasts, we are soon to be dust of the earth. Our souls are what live forever. Your sins are the only thing in the way of
salvation, or perhaps your mind is what's in the way. You are completely right, this makes no sense to believe in the spirit world and that you are a
soul. You are completely right it makes no sense, and that my friend is what prevents so much of this world from having faith. We are living in a time
of "no video, no proof" and if it doesn't make sense in our head then it doesn't make sense to believe. But I can tell you with every ounce of my
heart that you will never experience anything, ANYTHING, like forgiving your sins to the Lord Jesus and giving your life to him. I can't tell you, I
can't reason with you, I can make sense of it for you. All I can tell you is when you experience your spirit inside of you come alive and the tears
run down your face against your own will you will sit there and wonder how you've spent such a long time missing God's love. He loves you, but it is
your choice to love him back and it is my choice to express my love of him toward you.
I don't mean to be judging, or a hater, a persuader, or anything else for that matter. All I want is to shed some of my wisdom of my spirit and faith
God bless brother!
