today is sunday. one day, i need to tell my grandmother that i’m no longer an atheist. she thinks i’m going to hell, since i never told her that i had the epiphany of faith years ago.

i was a die-hard literalist:
“the bible cannot be proven!”
“none of it is conceivable.” & etc.
but then i realized, it’s all about faith—the stories in the book are teaching tools devised to instruct the unwashed, uneducated masses in the way of leading a good, moral life. the literal word need not be true, so long as the faith is solid.
