I love this blog so much: Samantha Field
. Escaping fundamentalism improved my life to the hundredth degree and it is so so so so… POWERFUL to read about another Christian that doesn’t believe in Hell either.
“I understand where Chelsen is coming from with this. I no longer believe in the doctrines of Original or Inherited Sin, and I do not believe that hell exists. Without those, the evangelical understanding of the Gospel evaporates rather quickly. I no longer “witness” to “the lost,” and I’m am very much unconcerned with whether or not those around me are “saved.” For the evangelical Christian, this is probably the worst form of heresy. According to many evangelicals, I have probably forsaken anything resembling Christianity.”
blowing my mind. for real.
Oh and have this song.
hey please don’t fall for me, just don’t.
I’m sorry in advance for not having the courage to give you the warning you need out loud. I’m sorry because impulses take precedence over what I know I shouldn’t do, most nights. I live with my eyes wide open. I stay sober so I don’t even have that excuse. I can’t expect you to walk the fine line of detachedness with me. If I could I wouldn’t be alone on my couch right now.
I’ve been thinking about Sufism. And how maybe Judaism isn’t the root of Christianity or Islam the root of Sufism, maybe its just that they needed to keep what they had been taught originally, but the end result is still Love.
organized religion, hmph.
I love Rumi. I don’t wanna call it Christianity or Sufism, can we just talk about how love is pretty much the only thing worth worshipping? The only quality I would allow you to attribute to God?
and I’m tired, not making all that much sense, but I’ve been writing beautiful things. That always comes to me as the nicest surprise.
