The fact is that, in the Christian world, many of you cannot just give up on church, the Bible, or religion. That is why, when you are able to free yourselves from it, oftentimes, you do not create a replacement for it. No philosophy of life except that “Life is unfair”.
According to Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), his philosophical approach, known “Pascal’s Wager” as to God’s existence is this: “It assumes that if God exists then God must take a rather specific form”.
And that IF you believe in God then everything will be okay IF there is a God. And if you do not believe in God AND there really IS a God, then you will be punished.
So, as it goes, if you believe that there is a God and God actually exists, then you have made a successful choice in your beliefs. And you will be rewarded.
My book, Gifts of the Spirit, strives to tie together Scripture and intuition, along with communication, prayer, meditation, and common sense. Some would call this ” Pick and Choose Christianity Approach”. That’s OK. Everyone is entitled to their perspective.
Yet, I did not write this book to make you a better Christian or to make you a Christian at all. And it’s true that some Christian beliefs and philosophies are helpful in life. In fact in every major religion or book about God contains ideas that can be adaptable to your personal way of life.
Embrace and personally adapt to the choices and knowledge that these written perspectives can have to positively impact you.
A second philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) claims that “the exemplary human being must craft his/her own identity through self-realization and do so without relying on anything transcending that life—such as God or a soul”.
I invite you to craft your own way through life. With an occasional guide or two. For life is a process. Not an end goal.
