Last Wednesday our Idente Youth teens in the Bronx discussed the unfortunate phenomena that some people do not take God or their faith seriously. They may for example,take the name of God in vain; by saying “Oh my God”, or use the expression, “I swear to God” to only superficially make people believe in their words. We found out that these happen because of ignorance about who God actually is. For this reason, we took some time to share our questions about God, including the questions other people have or that we
sometimes have doubts about. We hope that we continue to strengthen our belief and faith in God and that you can join us for our next teens' meeting this Wednesday at 6:00pm at St. Dominic's Church. For more information, please call us at (347) 948-3122 or check out our website:
“Atheism and Truth"
Thank you to all of you that made it to today’s IY meeting. The topic of discussion was “Atheism and Truth.” We briefly looked at the different world religions, are all religions the same, what truth is, and does truth really matter. As discussed, there is a truth. Truth is absolute, narrow, and exclusive. Let us discover it together.
“Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking.
By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again.
Wanderer, there is no road-- Only wakes upon the sea.
- Antonio Machado (Spanish Poet)
Attached is the slidedeck that was shared during the meeting.
The next IY meeting will be 10am Sat, June 4 at the Church Basement (not Lower Rectory). Please note this will be a welcome meeting for the newly confirmed students.
