Thank you for your videos. Ever since I was a kid, these exact sub conscious feelings have been churning inside of me. I was never one to cave due to pier pressure. And the church for me was nothing but a big peer pressure club of fear. The power of "FEAR" is misconstrued as the power of GOD. The power of the unknown. Rulers uses this power, animals use this power. This power is sometimes good, because it prevents you from getting killed. But that doesn't mean it GOD.
As a kid I had no way of putting exactly what you are saying into words. You have articulated EXACTLY what I feel. As a child I can remember getting my face slapped for saying things like, "Look, just because you believe in rocks, or the moon, or lightening, and it works for you, does not mean this "GOD" thing exists." It's the power of positive thinking. As a teenager I would argue with my parents and tell them everything happens under the "CCC" rule.(Chance, Circumstance, and Coincidence) You evaluate what are the chances of something bad happening to you for an action. Or under what circumstances that you put myself in will certain bad things happen to you. And, even if you did everything that was "right", shit would still happen and bad things would come your way, just by coincidence either something bad or good could happen.
OK, I've ranted enough. Thanks!!!
