God Seeker Guy has often been attacked for his negative posture on faith. “Everything you write is either sarcastic or a put down to those of us who have found faith.” observes a reader. Her comments are well taken and duly noted, however she appears to have missed the point of GSG’s writing.
GSG writes for himself, not for others, thus the lack of political correctness and sugar coating in his words. He does not mean to criticize the beliefs of anyone, though it may look that way at times. He is looking at the subject only from his own point of view, however confused that may be.
“Everything you write is either sarcastic or a put down to those of us who have found faith.”
He has great respect and admiration for those who have discovered the tranquillity of faith along with the solace and contentment it presumably brings. In fact knowing when we’re content is probably the secret to life. Recognizing happiness, peace and the genuine love of a good person is very difficult in a world that demands constant change and endless striving.
GSG understands that he is the outcast, he is the one with the “problem”. He respects others for getting on with life rather than squandering heartbeats demanding accountability from the unaccountable and endeavoring to conclude an impossible Sisyphean task.
He doesn’t fear condemnation, attack him, criticize him, challenge him, “dis-like” him, force him to defend his position. Perhaps in this way you will be the one to “save” him, who knows?
Searching for God and faith in his befuddled fashion is not a bloody minded effort to adulterate the cherished beliefs of others, he envies those people, wishes to join them, but cannot find the key to unlock the riddle others have solved.
