STUCK IN THE MIDDLE

I wonder sometimes why it is so easy for some to be so sure in their faith…whether that faith is a belief  that God exists…or…whether he doesn’t.

 

I am envious actually…knowing with no uncertainty what one believes.

 

There are some of us that each and every day of our lives we struggle to know what it is we believe…what we have faith in…what is truth for ourselves.

 

It is a struggle…

 

Neither side makes sense…

 

For the Christian…we stuck-in-the-middle people are the worst of the worst…so I have been told…luke warm they call us!

 

For the non-Christian…we stuck-in-the middle people are the worst of the worst…so I have been told…just can’t give up on the delusion!

 

Another thought just occurred to me though. Do any of you ever feel as if you are stuck trying to give an answer to someone like me…in other words…stay true to your faith but not say something that might offend me…well…someone like me…because we all know…I never get offended! LOL

 

What I am asking is…in your relationships with people outside the faith…do you ever feel as if maybe you are compromising your faith in order to not step on toes?

 

I feel that way at times during some conversations…I sometimes don’t voice my opinion on something to avoid stepping on the toes of my Christian friends…(well…there is Deb’s toes…I stomp hers every once in a while!)

 

🙂

 

There are times that I wish that I could just truly say what I think…yet I know what will follow most of the time…”You’re going to hell”…”die believing that”…”criticizing Christianity”…

 

I don’t know…maybe the two sides are so different that there can never be any understanding…though us stuck-in-the-middle people just keep trying.
