I highly encourage everyone to read this. Even if you are sound in your faith, these are at the very least interesting thoughts. If you are struggling or questioning faith, these can give you a scaffolding to rebuilding your faith. If you do not believe in God at all, they are at least interesting. The axioms do not represent orthodox Christian faith, but are a way to approach Christianity if you are outside the faith or really trying to build your faith back up from the bottom.

These are my axioms of faith. An axiom is a premise so evident as to be accepted as true without controversy (according to Wikipedia). To that note, everything on this list is something I can support with mainstream science. This is a form of faith for empiricists and skeptics–the people who need evidence to support any belief.

And just one of the axioms for a taste…

God is AT LEAST the natural forces that created and sustain the Universe as experienced via a psychosocial model in human brains that naturally emerges from innate biases. EVEN IF that is a comprehensive definition for God, the pursuit of this personal, subjective experience can provide meaning, peace, and empathy for others.
