Why require punishment in order to give forgiveness?
I recently heard a good definition of atheism:
The person defining it this way expanded it to include another idea:
Atheists do not insist that they know God does not exist. More precisely, atheists have no reason to believe in God.
NOTE: This was written January 11, 2013, in the style of a personal journal entry. As such, it is not a counter-apologetic statement. It is a personal statement reflecting my journey and state of mind at that time. I reserve the right to continue my journey, and change my state of mind!
I was asked, “Why do you call yourself Post-Christian?” I’m sure that I didn’t create this term, but I don’t know if it has different meanings from my own. So, I’m glad you asked, so I can be clear.
What I mean by calling myself “post-Christian” includes:
I am not an active member of any church.
I am not a follower of or a believer in any non-denominational group or individual.
I have not become an atheist or agnostic.
