Perhaps the thought of going to hell doesn't alarm you, because you don't believe in it. That may be your belief, but if hell exists, your lack of belief won't make it go away. Standing on a freeway and saying, "I don't believe in trucks" won't make the 18-wheeler disappear.
It's never pleasant to have one's unquestioning beliefs put in their historical context, as I know from experience, I can assure you.
It is my firm belief that I have a link with the past and a responsibility to the future. I cannot give up. I cannot despair. There's a whole future, generations to come. I have to keep trying.
God help us from those who believe that they are the sole possessors of truth. How we manage at times to agree willingly to become prisoners within our own minds and souls of beliefs and ideas on which we can never be flexible.
It seems so much of my time and my energy have been focused on making or trying to make other people love me. The unspoken belief was that if I could make myself lovable to others I would feel loved....The truth is, I can only feel loved by others when I love myself.

Believing is a fine thing, but placing those beliefs into execution is a test of strength.

Who can separate his faith from his actions, or his belief from his occupations?

As patterns of obedience develop, the specific blessings associated with obedience are realized and belief emerges.

The belief that we are what the media says we are, what people perceive we are, is soon to be what we think we are. We are treated based on this warped perception. It is hard to get away from it.

Do not fall prey to the false belief that mastery and domination are synonymous with manliness.
