Religion in the Destiny Saga
A major theme of the Destiny Saga is the effect that the different kinds of faith have on us as people. One aspect of faith is religion and it is a topic that can divide us as a people. I grew up a Christian and I had different opinions on what I believed in throughout the years. Some days I’m agnostic, but I still explore what I believe.This journey of faith has made a major impact on my perspective of life.
Some of the characters in the story question what they believe, what others believe and whether a God actually exists or not. To not have these issues explored in any story about humanity, I feel is not a very truthful story.
I don’t bring religion into the story to convert anybody or shove my beliefs into anybody’s face, but they say write what you know. The Linians all follow the two tenets of their belief systems, but not all of them believe in a supreme being(s) or subscribe to any of the religions.
The collective belief of the Linians is one of community above all else. They are completely against anything that will separate mankind and they don’t let their different faiths stop them from achieving their ultimate goal: to stop the “villian” of the story, Chaos.
I just wanted to say all this to reinforce that I don’t want to hold back on any topics that concern our world and I hope that when people read my stories, they don’t think I’m trying to shove my beliefs in their faces.
I just like having non politicised conversations through art and religion shouldn’t be off topic.
