Man or Rabbit

This reading is talking about whether or not someone can lead a good life without following Christ. Its important to know what it means to lead a "good" life. If you were to consider a good life to be one that allows you to be a friend, have a job, have a family, and abide by the laws, then yes, one can lead that kind of life without being a christian. However, I feel like if you have so many blessings in your life you have to believe. If you are considering a "good" life to be one that requires someone to live with morals and has a good soul then it is almost impossible. Having God in your life and believing in Him makes a huge difference in the way you live your life. God gives you a sense of purpose, you have the right intentions for doing things.

This past summer, when I was working with a special needs day camp, one of the boys drown during free swim. It was at this point that I really started to think about God present in our lives. I don't know how someone can go day to day and not believe. You see someone's life be taken from them and you have to wonder to yourself why this happened. Without God in your life you would be left in question about what happens next, but being a christian gives us knowledge that God has a plan for us and that when we die, it is only for a little while. So all in all I think that it is possible to live your live and not believe but it is a bland life. Following christ gives you a sense of purpose and encouragement.
