I was a Christian but now I’m an atheist.
I am a humanist.
I believe in the universe and the existence of God.
And that I am in love with all people.
When I was young, I believed in God.
But I’m not a Christian, and I’m still not a good Christian.
I have always been a good humanist and an atheist, and the reason I am still a good atheist is because I love the universe.
And I love God.
I love people.
So I don’t need to believe in God to love the people who live in the world, and that is why I am an atheist.
“I’m a Christian.
And yet, when I’m confronted with the facts that we’re all made in the image of God, I’m reminded of why I’m so afraid.
The very fact that I’m a human being gives me the freedom to love God, but it also makes me a coward.
And as a human, I am afraid to embrace this freedom.
