Many times while speaking on religion with friends or proselytes, they erroneously conclude at times , that I am some what irreligious. Not so. The conundrum of existence posed a question. So, in pursuit of an answer, I unwillingly joined the ranks, of the perplexed. Many were the times , during these periods of searching, that I wished for that “blind faith” so many others expressed.
It just wasn’t there for me.
Is there a doubt in my mind regards a Higher Power, none what so ever.
Over the course of decades, numerous forays into the bible created more problems than answers. That being said, I found many of the words written, to be of great interest, for reasons I wont go into at this time. Now ,what is listed here , is actually how they are written in my original notes. Could have rewritten a word or two, of my original thoughts, but decided to leave them as is. My note in Matthew 21:12 might disturb some. If so see(1 Kings 16:11-12 ) and (2 Kings 9:8 ) but be sure to use an old version of the bible, that was not sanitized.
In checking the verses and numbers, one may have a bit of a problem. I use older versions of the bible, so what you might find is a sanitized version, that may differ in text. Even the meaning may have been man altered, to suit some subtle purpose.
So now I need to point out, should one be concerned about what is written in Revelations 22:18-19?Check it out.You can do some checking of verses at the site listed at the bottom. This is a pro & con type listing, of various religions with interesting comments. Was pleased to find this site, as it was here, that I found the many questions that I had also raised, listed. Only points out that there are other persons that were as “questioning”, about things written, as I am. Right or wrong, is not the question , “how you perceive it all”, is what really matters, not dogma forced upon you.
This is not the original sequence I followed, that is of no importance here.Listed here are some that had raised many questions in my mind, in the nature of ” who, why, what, how come, are you kidding” .- Chapter / Verse – – How I marked my notes
