Do you believe in God? I mean really believe there is something more out there? The girls and I have been studying (with a fine toothed comb I might add-thanks to Genevieve Foster’s book) the ancient world and their attempts at answering some very important questions-ones that continue to come up thousands of years later:
1-What is this world we live in and how was it created?
2-How can we live in it with other people and be happy?
3-What will happen to us when we die?
Foster goes through several major people groups and their beliefs at the time. One thread remains-they all believed there was something more to life than themselves.
So were these people just dumb and we’ve evolved to where we are today-a world where atheism is growing ?
They didn’t seem stupid.
The girls and I study our faith and others’ attempts at answering the top three questions. Why do we believe this guy named Jesus was savior of the world? How do we know Isis isn’t the Goddess we should be following? If we did explode into this universe what purpose does that give us for living here?
I’m curious how you believe and how you pass this on to your children. There are some interesting things going on in our courts today that could affect how we teach our children. I’m very interested to hear your perspective.
So what do you think?
