12 Oct A Message to All Christians – Don’t Be Afraid to Do This (MUST WATCH!!)

 

My name is Joshua Tongol.

 

I was raised a Christian.

 

For years I believed whatever I was taught by pastors, preachers and teachers. I was told what to believe, how to think, and how to live.

 

Honestly, I constantly struggled with my faith because, on the one hand, I believed in a God who supposedly “loved” me unconditionally, but, on the other hand, I also believed in a God who was hateful, exclusive, judgmental, and violent.

 

God, to me, seemed somewhat schizophrenic.

 

I had no security in God’s love whatsoever. His love and acceptance of me was based on what I believed and how “good” I was.

 

Thankfully, my life and views of God began to change (for the better) once I started to do what I’ll be sharing in this video.

 

Here are some things for you to think about:

 

*What if everything you were taught about Christianity (and religion) is wrong?

 

*Learn to think for yourself and don’t allow others to think for you

 

*Always be honest and true to yourself

 

*Are your religious beliefs creating a better you and helping make this world a better place?

 

*Do you have questions about your faith but are too afraid to ask them?

 

*Can you still be spiritual without having to be a Christian?

09 Aug Fear is an illusion (ALL IN YOUR MIND)

 

Did we enter this world with fear, separation, and shame? Or is all this “darkness” between our ears?

 

Unfortunately, many parents, educators and ministers have negatively affected the subconscious minds of people all over the world.

 

It’s time to remember our innocence.

 

Listen in as Joshua shares his heart and answers questions on important subjects. It might give you a different perspective on things.

01 Aug “No One Has the Truth! Everything’s Relative!” (Let’s Talk About It)

 
When it comes to discussing ideas, it’s commonly said that “everything is relative.” Many open-minded people conclude that, because there are so many differing views, there is no Truth.

 

But is truth relative? Can something be true for one person and not necessarily for another? Does everybody have their own “truth”?

 
Is morality merely a matter of taste? If so, would this belief be livable? Will the world succeed of we continue hurting others?

 

Yet, at the same time, is morality a rigid structure of dos and don’ts where it is always bad to make a certain choice? Can there be more than one [right] way to respond to any given situation?

 
Can there be, in a sense, an objectivity to human nature, which makes a successful and livable world?

 

Personal beliefs throughout history have definitely changed over time. And it does seem obvious, at least to me, that some things do evolve. But is everything subjective? And is “reality” always clear to individuals–especially in an evolving and creative quantum world?

 
G.K. Chesterton said, “Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.”

 
But is anything really SOLID?

 
Listen in as Joshua shares his heart and answers questions on important subjects. It might give you a different perspective on things.

27 Jun Listen to “So You Thought You Knew.” Yup, it’s now an Audiobook!

61AUlRHYEpL._SL500_AA300_PIaudible,BottomRight,13,73_AA300_

Are you not much of a reader? Do you prefer LISTENING to a book instead?

 

Well, I have some exciting news for you!!

 

Yup, that’s right, “So You Thought You Knew” is now available as an audiobook!!

 

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD: So You Thought You Knew Audiobook

 

So WHO is the one reading it? YOURS TRULY!

 

I’ve had so many people tell me that they love listening to audiobooks as they drive or while they’re doing things around the house. So I thought, “Josh, it’s about time you made one!”

 

Remy and I purchased some equipment and did the recording in our own home. We did it suuuuper late at night (or should I say morning) for several days (from 12am-4am) because we had to wait for the noise of the cars driving by our place to die down! LOL!
 

During the recording, I felt strong emotions as I read my own personal stories. What an experience!! But a good one indeed!! You’ll actually get to HEAR my heart on topics such as God, the Bible, grace, hell, the devil, church, and other topics that are important for religious folks to think about.

 

The audiobook was just released on Audible.com today. And it’ll eventually be available on Amazon, iTunes, as well as their global partner sites, within a couple of days.
 

If you’d like to purchase the paperback or kindle version of the book, click here: So You Thought You Knew

 

Happy reading…errr…I mean LISTENING! (Or both!) Thanks for all the love and support.

Tired of religion?

 

What if almost everything you were taught about Christianity is wrong?

 

Would you give up on faith altogether? Or is it possible to rediscover—with fresh eyes—a richer and more satisfying understanding of God and spirituality?

 

This message is about thinking outside the “institutional walls” of Christianity and asking the hard questions. Joshua boldly says in public what many people are thinking in private. And his hilarious stories and life-changing insights will inspire those who are dissatisfied with fear-driven religion but believe—deep down—there’s a better message out there for the world to hear.
