My Christian Ideals but I'm Not a Christian

by Adam Mundorf

Be a Beacon of Light
Why do we find inspiration from movies in which good overcomes evil?  Why do we find pleasure in watching the resiliency of good  overcoming seemingly insurmountable evil?  We view this as a fantasy but I believe that we can all become angelic.  Think about who you are and your ideal self.  Is your ideal self a picture of someone who drank on the weekends, did drugs on the weekday and just lived a day to day cycle of spiritual suffering?  -OR- Is your ideal self a picture of someone who refrained from earthly ideals to become angelic?  Someone who others can look to for hope......Let's be real : Spiritual growth and cultivation is the only way to achieve long term gratification.

My Christian Ideals but I'm Not a Christian
I get a lot of questions from Reddit asking about my religion.  I was raised 'Christian' but I no longer identify as such but that doesn't mean I can't take useful nuggets. The Bible gets its whole point across in this passage : "So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the laws and the prophets." -- Matthew 7:12.

Everything else is just icing on the cake.  Don't be a jerk, plain and simple.  Being a jerk includes lifestyle, actions and attitude, not just how you treat others.  It includes things you know deep down inside aren't congruent with a virtuous life.

The Christian God's a jerk to put it lightly.  What type of God would allow his creation to starve, suffer and die?  What kind of God would give cancer to children and allow such social inequity to flourish.  I hope God had a good nap during the Holocaust, World War 2, World War 1 and all the kids in Africa screaming to the heavens just for some clean water.  If there is a Christian God, I don't want to be on his team.  He certainly isn't a nice or just person.  

Fuck you Yahweh, you maniacal prick.

Be a beacon of light and never allow anyone else to extinguish your eternal flame of virtue.
