How hard it is sometimes to have a logical mind that likes to over think things. Someone posted on "My Story" and it got me thinking how hard it is to have faith, at times.
My brain wanders...it's all part of the whole Aspergers thing. How can ONE major religion be right and the rest of the religions be wrong? Isn't it possible God showed himself to people in different regions in different forms?
The Baha'i Faith might be onto something. (if I wasn't Catholic...this would be my next choice of religion)
They basically believe that:
"Throughout history, God has revealed Himself to humanity through a
series of divine Messengers, whose teachings guide and educate us and
provide the basis for the advancement of human society. These Messengers
have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and
Muhammad. Their religions come from the same Source and are in essence
successive chapters of one religion from God."
This just makes sense to me. I have always felt that there is ONE God, shown to many people in different ways and forms. It makes it hard for me to stay focused on MY Faith. But, that's where that FAITH word comes into play. Even if things don't make sense...we ALL must rely on our Faith.
Pray for me. I sometimes fall away, doubting all that I am doing. Am I right and everyone else wrong? Is my God different from YOUR God? Are ALL the other Religions going to fall away when MY God reveals Himself to everyone else?
UGH...my brain needs to settle down today! TOO MUCH THINKING!!!! :)
Off to do my reading and my prayers!
