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?

19 Jun If You’re Religious, This Might Make You Uncomfortable | Why Christianity Must Change (Must Watch!)

 

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.
