What is a Heathy Belief System

Submitted by Stephen Winters

 

A healthy belief system is based upon truth. It is based upon the reality of your experiences. For example, do you believe that your living room chair will hold you up? Do you TRULY believe that it will hold you up? If you are like most people, I would assume that you would answer "Yes." Why is that? Could it be because you have sit that chair perhaps hundreds of times. Your belief about that chair is based upon the reality of your experiences.

Which Belief is Right?

Submitted by Stephen Winters

 Which belief system is the right one?Whether we are religious or not religious, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, or Atheist, I would assume that we think that we are the ones who have it right. Otherwise, why would we believe the way that we do unless we think that our belief is right? There are many belief systems and religions in the world  (see List of Religion and Spiritual Traditions) Let's take a look at the concept that one belief system is the right one.

"I Believe!"

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Over my 60 years of life I have heard many people say, "I believe..." in Jesus, in God, etc. Some say this with such a conviction or with such emotion or force in their voice.

One hard FACT for many of us to accept is, "Just because I believe something doesn't make it true." Belief is not the same thing as truth. Belief is not the same thing as reality. Spoken words of belief is a mental construct. Just because I say, or I yell, that I believe, that doesn't mean that I truly believe.

Belief in the Bible

Submitted by Stephen Winters

I've learned a few things. Just because someone believes in something does not make it true. Just because someone believes INTENSELY in something does not make it true. Someone's belief in something has nothing to do with whether or not something is true. Something is true because it is true, and for no other reason.
