I am through with being a Christian. I am through following these idotic rules in some ancient book. Let me tell you why... What happened when the terroists hijacked the planes and flew them into the twin towers? The event "9/11." Now... I think to myself: If God REALLY cared... would any of this of happened? Or, more to the point, you think this Iraq/USA conflict bullshit would be over now. But it's not. So... these leaves me with two possible conclusions... 1). God is not all what he is cracked up to be, and is not perfect. 2). There is no God. No matter which you pick, you end up at almost the same exact points. If you choose #1, you've arrived at the point that states, "God is not perfect and he does not care about us. But the bible is God's word, and the bible says God cares. A contradiction." And if you've skipped the theories all together, and chose #2, here is your result, "There is no God. God does not care and the events of today clearly show that." And let me tell you... if you think God DOES exist and DOES care, give me a reason why I should care. But don't give me an excuse like, "All people must suffer! All people must go through trial! God wouldn't give us anything we couldn't handle!" Then how come most of us feel overwhelmed? Hmm? Riddle me that, God.
