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?

02 Apr A Very IMPORTANT (and Maybe UNCOMFORTABLE) Question | Joshua Tongol

 

Get Josh’s bestselling book “So You Thought You Knew: Letting Go of Religion”:

 

http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00I3TTXPI

 

Date: 3-22-14
Location: San Diego, CA

 

Ask yourself the question, “WHAT IF?”

 

Joshua was raised within the evangelical tradition. Throughout the years, he served as a teacher, pastor, and evangelist at several denominations such as: Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Southern Baptist, and Assemblies of God. He also served as a missionary to the Philippines after graduating from seminary.

 

Although Joshua was the type to always ask questions during his early adult years, he finally found the courage to really question some of his “fundamental” beliefs he held to as an evangelical Christian. He began questioning his understanding of God, the Bible (inerrancy), grace, the gospel, eternal hell, Satan, interfaith, and even church.

 

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