My Faith: Jesus
Also, I mean no disrespect. This is about me and what I can and cannot believe in.
I don't believe in Jesus. Rather, I don't believe he was more than a man. A good man, sure, with a great message of love and acceptance, but still just a man.
Christianity asks you to believe some miracles when it comes to Jesus. I'm not a Christian; it's just not within me. I won't go as far as to say the Christians are for sure wrong, because I don't know and it's not my place.
I know I believe in science above all else. And science would see it impossible for someone to be born to a virgin. I also can't believe he rose for the dead. I don't know if maybe he never actually died on the cross, or what. I have no explanation as to what actually happened all those years ago. I just know I can't believe in something scientifically impossible.
I think Jesus was indeed a great, maybe even sinless, man. I believe that following his teachings can lead to a happy, fulfilling life. That doesn't make him more than a man.
I also believe that Buddha was a great man with great teachings. He too was just a man.
Just a man doesn't mean incapable of great and wondrous things. But while I do have faith in a higher power, I believe all men must follow the laws of science. They have been proven time and time again.
So I am not Christian. I'm ok with this. I don't need to be Christian to have a relationship with God.
And I do have a relationship with God. It is an imperfect work in progress, but the faith is within me.
