To what degree are we actually able to choose our beliefs or lack thereof?


I've often been told that I should choose this religion or that faith or choose to believe in something rather than not, but I don't necessarily think beliefs are an active choice. You cannot choose to disbelieve gravity and suddenly are able to fly, so why would choosing a religious belief be somehow different?

    If a person must chase God, they fail to understand God. Ignorance exists in individuals when they proclaim that something does not exist because they cannot touch it. I cannot touch the moon, yet I know it is there even on stormy nights. So is God

    Good, DH. Ignoring reality leads to delusion. But faith is not belief. Faith is Truth at spirit. This is something you either feel or you are numb to. I have felt spirit for the last 63 years. I left my granddad's S.Baptist pastorship at age 9.
