Religion is a very sensitive topic nevertheless some light needs to be shed on one of the most controversial topics in the world and though I have wanted to speak out about it for as long as I can remember way further before I even started the blog but I was always afraid that my opinions and line of people may lead to an social exorcism of a young boy’s mind and probably I would be branded a sign of the end of times by some fanatic Christians.
Well I can’t really say I’m very comfortable talking about any of this but if I don’t speak about it may take probably a century or a millennium for another me to come of age but our best bet would be another 28 years for the fruit of my loins to come of age.
Just the other day I was chatting with my homie then as random as ever the topic strides to a point I asked what she was expecting to see in the after life after death and she confidently texted back “Jesus.” My curious nature uncontrolled and undivine sorted to ask why if she was sure and she would go ahead to put her best foot forward and say the power of faith. I would applaud her and so will many Christians some so called and some the real deal but how about I give it a mbogaholic touch.
I am not trying to be controversial so save your judgment for someone who is and neither will I allow a mere mortal human be the decider of my fate yet there truly is a superior being responsible for my existence. You see in my convo with my homie there were certain pointers I was looking for which were all pointing towards surety and confidence that she had as she said Jesus but to back it up with only faith and yet to be so sure that it is the only result after death. I am not against the possibility infact I am so open minded and I have short listed it as among the most expected things to happen after my death but why would anyone be that sure about anything so much so that other forms of religion are branded wrong and lost but all they have at the end of the many questions is faith.
Is it bad to have faith? HELL NO!! I have faith I will live to see my a hundred year but I am not so stone cold sure that I turn my faith into a fact. Faith cannot be summed as facts but rather a shimmer of hope and rather of being stone cold sure rather they hope that it is Jesus who is at the end of this road and life moves on but try saying this amongst Christians who are bred for jihad some self made others delusional but I don’t judge I tend to show tendencies of fanaticism but towards football and gaming intrusions but religion naah. My most affected of the religiosity lot would obviously be Christians.
If yall rely on faith because facts cannot hold in an argument where religion is law then don’t make your faith law either. Christians at time are so side blinded they believe that the only way is Jesus Christ and anything else is going to hell including Muslims and the Buddhists and if go further on some a bit open minded Christians will say that Allah is the same God but does that mean anyone worshipping Buddha or Seth are already sinners but really is that their problem. It is like judging people who grew up knowing Santa Claus exists, is it really their problem that they believe such old folk tales are real? And oftenly in most of those movies it is faith that ensures these fairy tale super heroes are still alive.
I am not saying that Christians are the ones going to hell but how will they feel if they die and find that at the end of the road was Allah or nothing but obsolete space but everyone is quick to say atheists are devil worshippers but in simplicity atheists at times are just people who have found it too hard to rely on baseless facts and ultimate faith as the only clinchers to a particular religion. I think the bible though the Lord said there will be prophets who will spread his word it doesn’t necessarily have to be pastors who give wrong renditions of the bible based on their useless understanding of the word that’s why I rarely attend church so as to hear how people will use the bible to actually condem some behaviour and you wonder how the church will outright give justice to drunkards and prostitutes yet in the bible itself, mind you in the new testament, weren’t prostitutes part of His plans, weren’t thieves there too. The christianity should be a mere interpretation of the bible based on your own knowledge and if you are lost then find more experienced but don’t outright buy what he sells. Some christians are so into their religion and they fail to see when pastors apply simple mind games of the interpretation and soon a whole congregation enjoys in the feasting of snakes and you wonder has it really got to the point that if I do a couple of acted miracles and tell people the Lord wants us to eat sinners you will all follow.
There are only but a few christians who have impressed me in this putrid world one being the living incarnation of the Lord’s angels…Shinina. She doesn’t forcefully spoon feed anyone the words of Christ but she does it in a well mannered form with a bit of reasoning and doesn’t infringe on whatever principles you had then. Her opinions are not radical and she might be among the few people who have me set my eyes into being a fully fledged christian. I for one think that some questions have really gone unanswered and the one major questions is that if the God our Lord is almighty and knows all that will happen even before it does then if He knows everybody who will be heading to hell and heaven why do we have to go through earth why set us to fail He would have just made us as babies and threw us in hell or heaven but again I am only open minded.
I am not saying christianity is bad but rather it has been turned into a fanatic cash cow franchise where everyone wants to be a pastor and there are more churches than mama mboga kiosks and you wonder is it really the decency of the preaching or an investment all in the end. Christians should be careful on whom they follow, how they spread the word and how they deal with other religions cause if I further narrow it down christians have divisions within them where there are catholics, seventh day adventists etc who all have different ways to do things per taking to the church but they will come together to pick upon Muslims. In fact to be honest Islam has made more sense to me in four years I was in school than christianity has my whole life and I am very sure some people are christians for the possibility that if it was ever true then they were at the right place while most religions are actually 90% staunch followers.
I on the other hand believe that there has to be someone responsible for my existance and obviously they are super natural beings who would have made such a perfect man and then I stem arguments on the fact that for every protagonist there is an antagonist and hence there must be another supernatural being who is totally against everything my God preaches. My God may be the Lord of Abraham and Isaac but he surely He was not the God of a Kinuthia, Ochieng or Kipchirchir who believe snake eating is holy. I believe after we die we are reincarnated either as inanimate objects or other humans to live new lives.
Please don’t judge on the basis of religion and to be honest as per the law, freedom of religion, my lawyer informs me that anyone who down looks on another’s religion is viable for a law suit to be filed against them so be careful what your mouth spews, your opinion might be your ticket to becoming penniless.
