Now I can already see some folks blubbering that there could never be such proof. Others are reaching over to pick up their torches and pitchforks. Fine. Come and get me. But those who are willing to consider this for just a minute, might gain some insight into how their faith shapes their life. For me, there would be no reason to go to church any more, thus freeing up some of my time on Sunday nights. I would also have a bit more money in my pocket as I would not have to give to the offering. I might also not beat myself up as much for lustful thoughts and I might even enjoy the company of a few more folks in the evening, if you catch my drift. But, all of these are just "what ifs". I would like to think that my morality is not completely tied in with my faith. While thinking of others and helping the less fortunate, being considerate and generous, and loving those around you are certainly Christian ideals, I think they are also sensible and appropriate human ideals. Perhaps I would not live some aspects of my life so differently after all.
