I am agnostic. Let me just get that out there. For those unclear about agnosticism, it’s like this. It’s not that I don’t believe in God or that he exists. And I don’t think people are wrong for believing in God. I just don’t know. I can’t prove or disprove the theory of God and the Bible and faith. And until I can, I claim no religion. We’ll get back to this in the future, but now, to the point of this post.
Jamaica has a particular set of people who get on my nerves. They are the ones who go to church religiously on Sundays (Saturdays for the SDAs who are even more particular about these things than others) and all through the rest of the week their behaviour is questionable at best. Samples of things they do include:
- Buy clothes when they don’t know how they will eat for a week because it’s to wear to church
- Impose their beliefs on others through limiting their actions – you can’t eat pork around them because they don’t eat it
- Call people evil because they read, watch and listen to non-Christian material
Now I care not how you want to live your life. If your God says you should jump off a cliff, then by all means do so but why are you carrying other people with you? I am so sick and tired of these people who they are better than everybody and that they know it all. The ones who listen to the pastor preach and take in every word like a kid licking candy with nary a thought of their own to question if they are even making sense.
If you are a Christian, then good for you. You have strength and courage I will never have, I commend you for this. But please, think clearly about how you impose your lifestyle on others – especially those close to you. Remember that each person in this life has to make their own path and answer for their own choices – give others an opportunity to view objectively and choose what they want out of life.
