Welcome back, and thank you for listening in!
In my last video, I said I "pity" atheists. I wanted to add nuance to what I meant by "pity," it's a word that doesn't quite capture my meaning, but it comes closest. There's no shame in a person holding any belief that's been heavily considered. Still, what information "adds up to" in a person's mind (the belief they choose) reflects what's in the heart. Again, no judgment, just observation.
The heart of atheism can too easily lead to despair. Despair means we've given up and can easily lose the will to live. As an advocate for living and living whole, atheism isn't an idea that I can contain or entertain.
People walking a spiritual path know the importance of believing in a Creator. And people who feel called to a spiritual path, but can't conceptualize a power greater than themselves, must contend with this: you have to believe in something.
As always, the video is after the jump and clicking the picture above will take you to the audio/only podcast.
Thank you for listening. I appreciate you.
