"A multi-part series that I'm doing. In the end, hopefully I'll chronicle my path from being afraid to being unafraid."

Part 2

I've finished reading this book that talks about going through different forms of
physical pain (getting beat up, stabbed, tortured, etc.) in order to tell people about GOD. There I said it. Some people will probably be offended or simply brush off what I'm going to talk about. Oh well, but, I'm convinced that I can die
because I believe in GOD. Ok, just so we're clear of what GOD I'm referring to. I'm talking about the christian GOD. The one who is supposed to be responsible for christianity and the bible. That GOD is the one I refer to. From this point on, I'm only talking about that particular one.

I'm aware of people dying for this faith. I naturally don't want any of this, but I feel it's coming no matter what I do. Have you ever felt you knew what was going
to happen in your future? Have you ever felt like you knew what hardships would come if you chose a certain career? What can you expect if you want to become a
parent? How about a cop? What about a doctor? Each of these jobs have risks associated with them and things that will naturally happen as a result of your choice. My career I believe will include some not-so-happy-times to say it nicely.

If it was up to me. I'd become a world-famous engineer who invented something and got rich off of it and got a Nobel prize for it. I'd have my own technological empire. THAT is my dream! But I realize there's much more to life than me. I'll at some point write a story about myself if I chased that dream instead. But... time to focus back on the topic. I've got a new word to study:Christian Hedonism.

Christian: a person who belives in Jesus Christ.
Hedonism: the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the highest good.

I don't buy into this hedonism stuff though. that's why I'm going to study it. But, that's a future topic...
