Day 1

So, this being the start of the journey, let me begin with a short list of my beliefs and where I am coming from.
  1. I believe in evolution.  I believe that the earth is billions of years old, and was created like all other planets.
  2. I believe that homosexuality is not a choice, and they should have all the rights as the rest of us.
  3. I believe in a woman's right to choose based on certain circumstances when it comes to abortion.
  4. I believe in birth control, smoking, drinking, and gambling.
What I hope to gain from this journey is a better understanding of Christians, and a better understanding of the book that is the foundation of our US government.  I don't expect this to be an easy journey.  Lots of questions are going to pop up, and in the end this blog will be mostly questions that I hope other Christians are asking themselves on their beliefs, and I believe that's what Jesus would want you to do.  Ask questions and get educated.
Growing up Catholic makes this transition much easier for me compared to others who are atheist.  Making a conscious decision to pursue Christ with no beneficial expectations is a hard thing if you can't even understand believing in an invisible deity in the clouds.  Keep note though that I'm a horrible example of a Catholic.  Don't base other Catholics on myself.
