News24 Saved me from Hell...

30 June 2014, 14:28
This is a true story.  
A year or so ago, I discovered online news programs of which News24 became the ultimate one I visited, not because their articles were better than others or more factual or even more interesting, but because while trying to source through fact and fictional, I happened to come upon the personal articles section.  There were some excellent and diverse articles which often and still gives me great pleasure to read...However, the best outcome to come from this was the fact that I slowly started seeing the "light".  Serious doubts and questions which plaque'd me for almost all of my life were being answered by the writings of different people.  I felt liberated and extremely excited about "life".  A whole knew world came to light so to speak and it was wonderful.  No more guilty feelings for things I did not do wrong (like not going to church or thinking myself to be a sinner because I could not feel and believe like the religious out there)....Finally I could live my life without nagging thoughts of burning in hell when my time comes to an end.  Flowers look and smell better, I enjoy life much better now and appreciate all things like family/friends and all other living things out there with a greater passion.  I understand NOW, that this moment in time, is mine and I have only this one time to make the best of it.  (Although, I am sorry that I wasted almost half of my life away by the unfortunate way I and most of you were brought up to believe in something that does not exist.)  But while there is still a heart pumping blood through my veins, I will make the best I can to live a productive life and to enjoy the little things in life.  So, with this, I would really like to thank all those die hard's on News24 who showed me the way, and ask that they keep up the good work....slowly but surely they are extracting us from the fodder of religion .... Also, last but not least, I have to ultimately thank the real saviors out there who helped me come to terms with reality.  These are all the people who preach and comment for, and on behalf of their "God's"..... your irrational and delusional outcries have hammered the final nail into the coffin.
