I have a job where I travel for work. When I am on the road, I'm typically working 12-13 hours a day, 7 days a week. Working those kind of hours, it's hard to even take care of essentials, let alone keep connections with friends and family and maintain a blog or two. (Don't feel too bad for me, because I still draw a paycheck when I'm not on the road; sitting at home doing practically nothing!)
Some of Christian relations of mine have asked me (paraphrased): "So why do you bother doing The Wise Fool blog? Why does it matter to try to prove you are right? Are you so angry and embittered towards God that you feel you have to attack Him?" They just don't understand that I view it as an act of charity and benevolence to my fellow man as I donate my time to help educate others, and I am as likely to be angry with God as I am likely to be angry at Santa Claus. Getting angry at something that you know doesn't exist is pretty foolish.
But there are other reasons for the blog too; reasons strong enough to compel me to post this Friday despite having an especially hectic and demanding week. Reasons like this:
This is an actual bumper sticker on a Christian's car. This is a Christian with no doubts about Christianity. How can I tell? "Gun toting" implies a willingness to be gun using, specifically to kill other humans. You don't go around advertising that you are willing to purposefully break commandments of God unless you think you are perfectly right with God.
If Christians can read my blog and not give up Christianity, so be it. My biggest aspiration is to at least plant a seed of doubt in as many Christians as possible. I believe that if you have doubts, you are a lot less likely to do something extremely stupid for your faith. If everyone doubted their religion just a little bit, I think the world would be a much better place. What do you think?
