In a recent Reddit post, a user’s quest for understanding religion led to unintended consequences. Here’s the full story.
He Came From a Religious Background
Growing up in a household with strong Christian values, Davids’s upbringing was firmly rooted in his father’s Catholic background.
A Rough Spot in Life
However, as David encountered challenges in life, he began seeking solace and guidance through reading the Bible.
He Had Doubts
However, in this quest, he stumbled upon inconsistencies and troubling passages within the text, prompting him to compile notes for further investigation.
He Asked His Father
To gain clarity, David turned to his father, hoping to engage in a meaningful discussion about his concerns. He thought his father knew more than he did, and maybe he had misunderstood some parts.
The Unexpected Results
This act, while well-intentioned, set off a chain of events that would ultimately lead to a profound shift in their father’s faith.
His Father Got Upset
Upon reviewing David’s notes, his father initially struggled to provide satisfactory explanations, saying, “Well we don’t always understand god’s plan” and then got quiet and started getting upset.
He Found Out a Shocking Discovery
After looking into his doubts for countless hours without finding any answers, he found out that it’s actually quite common for Christians to take up reading the bible and end up falling out of the religion over what’s actually in the book.
His Father Lost His Faith
David told his father about this, and he just said he didn’t know anymore.
Things Took a Turn
Now David’s father is in bad health, and he knows that the idea of god and an afterlife gives him a lot of comfort when he knows he’s reaching the end.
He Felt Bad
However, David felt bad for taking that from him, even though it wasn’t his intention. He began to question whether his actions were ethically sound.
It’s Ok to Ask
David took to Reddit to ask whether he was wrong for what he did and several Redditors sided with him, saying that he was not wrong.
Faith Must Have Already Been Shaky
One Reddit user wrote, “If he falls off his belief that easily he never really believed in the first place. He probably already knew it was all fake but just wanted to believe, now he just knows for sure it’s fake and can’t keep up the fake believing anymore either.”
Another Redditor commented, “As you surmised, your problem was actually reading the bible. The church would prefer that you didn’t, and just believed their lies.”
