Faith v Fear
Good v Evil...
Is the fear-monger Bush really the antichrist?
Do you think god exists?
I am a spritiual person. I do not abide by any specific religious sect or mandate but I do belive in God. I choose to live my life the best way
possibile in western society. I clear my head of negative thoughts and predjudices whenever they enter my head. I dont consider myself greedy, never
lie unless i have unselfish grounds for it. I help others without them asking me for. I give what I can without expecting anything in return.
I'm 18, I've tried to live by these few moral 'rights' for a while now, and have sucseeded most of the time. I do not live in fear. I have
accepted the fact that I will not live to grow old or raise a family, which is a sad thought. i live my life the best i can so I can be judged on the
merits of it when i pass into the afterlife, whatever that may be. Be concious of your actions and think objectivley.
What I'm getting at is that I dont live in fear. Fear has been a weapon that has been utilised very sucsessfully in recent years, although it's been
on the board for years. The evil powers that be knew they could just start a campaign of fear out of the blue. More and more fear has been etched into
westerners minds since WW2 and every day it grows exponentially worse.
Do you think its conincidence that with all this fear in the western world, we see less and less people being spiritual/religious? I dont. Most of the
non western world dosent live in fear. They live in the shadow of the west's consumer culture: suffering. How do they get by? Faith. Atleast 4
billion people in the world are religious. We in the west are not, we are fearful.
Talking of the 'end of days', I do not believe in the bible code. Thats just chance. My belifs lie in things such as the egyptian Giza Pyramid
propecies and the Mayan predictions. If you havent checked out
i suggest you do, have a little look at the table about half way down the page.
It is now that we dont have faith we are seing the most evil in the world. If there is evil without faith, and peace with faith, I belive there is a
If you have a different oppinion, please do voice it. What do we have in this life but our oppinions? Peace.
