Fitting that this second project log is coming on a Sunday. You can check out the previous log here.
On August 13, 2016, Marques Houston became a Jehovah’s Witness. Around that same time i had lost interest in being one.
In February 2017, i started reading Mere Christianity by CS Lewis, recommended by a friend. I think it was just what i needed, i am careful however to be too optimistic, good writing always makes me feel this way.
However, it moved me so much, that i have decided to return to the church i grew up in. This in no way means that i have no misgivings, yet borrowing from one of Lewis’ analogies, it looks like being a Jehovah’s witness is the only room in the house of Christianity, whose teachings i can abide by.
You see belief and religion is really about the safest bet. There is no absolute certainty at least for me. Is there a God? Most likely. Creation or evolution? Creation makes far more sense. And so on.
Down to the technicalities, being a Jehovah’s witness is a far more immersive experience. I have let my hair grow out, i have to tame it. Since i cannot put on a pair of jeans and a polo, i have to search for some appropriate clothes, i have to make a schedule for preaching once or twice a week. These are some things i have to work out.
Whether this true faith or kind of cynicism is one aspect i am yet to analyse. Overthink these things and you will never get anywhere. So yes, next week i will resume church. Hopefully.
