I heard someone say this:
“Belief in God is like cancer.”
Cancer, of course, is a bad thing.
Cancer should be removed.
Cancer harms people.
God, in contrast, is life.
He cannot be removed via a surgical process.
“His brain is filled with Faith! We must operate immediately!”
Belief in God is not like cancer.
It’s like Down’s Syndrome.
Down’s Syndrome is in every cell in the body.
It saturates a person.
It defines a person.
You can’t ‘remove’ it.
Why would you want to?
There are few things on Earth as delightful as people with Down’s Syndrome.
They smile incessantly.
They laugh infectiously.
They light up every room they inhabit.
If ‘joyfulness’ had a face, it would be the grinning mug of a person with Down’s Syndrome.
Perpetual childhood is the goal of Christianity.
“Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”
Eternity is filled with simple people.
Meek, simple, childish people will dance forever with God.
That’s nothing like cancer.
The atheist are in full force in the comments under this article. I don’t know what has them so riled up. The language is unusually profane today.
I do not edit or censor comments on this blog because it is important to leave the effects of depraved thinking on public display. Apart from God, there is no rationality. Godless minds have nothing but rage.
If you are offended by vulgar language, avoid the comment section today.
