In answer to a recent post by a bogging buddy, Dax
I’ll take science and knowledge over fear and ignorance any day.
When your Faith tells you that your life is meaningless and a disaster, when it tells you that your life has no value or purpose but what the God of the Bible assigns, when people who are bound and still chained in Plato’s Cave encourage you to stay satisfied and content in your prison of Shadows and Darkness rather than venture out into the Light and Freedom of Reality… as it really is.
Fear Trumps, they’re counting on it
They are expressing their own fear that you might be free, have meaning, purpose, value and worth apart from their delusion. And they’re afraid that it might be possible for them too… but they are too afraid of the unknown and uncertainty to take that chance.
The happy delusion becomes the ‘lesser of two evils’
- The evil that it might all really be a delusion
- the evil that it might all really be a delusion… but I’m happy and content not knowing, and too afraid to find out.
We know which one “wins” for most people trapped in the clutches of a Loving God who also threatens Eternal Torture for not ‘loving’ Him back…
The Devil you know, vs the one you don’t always has the stronger appeal.
But you don’t have to live in fear, ignorance and delusion that your life has no value, worth, purpose or meaning without absolute and total submission to a God who asks your for Faith in lieu of Evidence for His existence.
Break the chains, get up and walk out of the cave into the bright light of… Reality. Recovery Awaits!!
