I agree that faith is more important that organized religion. Some people value the community that a religion provides, but ... in the end, it's all about your connection to the Divine.


Religion is meant for the connection! well said Ana. If we need to have a community service and other stuff, better join a club - and I say GV provides more to US ALL than the so-called community service. lol.

Take my hand and we'll go riding through the sunshine from above

XghstXhntrX, you aren't alone.  I too don't claim any religion as mine, or would it be more prudent to say that no religion can lay a claim on me yet.  I like to hear about the different religions, and respect each person's right to practise whichever makes them happy and gives them peace inside.  Each religion has some differences, and each would probably be more than happy to sell you on theirs.  But the bottom line is, what makes you feel peace in your heart?  Go with that, and you can't go wrong.

x: i'm going to do something that it appears no one else is going to do. i think you should explore christianity. by that, i don't mean just go to your local church and find all the hypocrites and decide it's not for you. i mean explore the bible. talk to several people about it. include me in that, if you wish.

that's the first thing i was going to do that no one else will: suggest my own religion.

the second thing is to suggest that perhaps the problem in finding a religion is that you're only looking to fulfil your own needs. there's nothing inherently wrong with that. but what makes christianity (-true- christianity) different, is that i, as a Christ-follower, know that it simply isn't about me. it's not about what makes me happy or comfortable or secure. it's about honoring God and living for Him. it's about loving and caring for those with whom we share this earth. quite often, those things can become very uncomfortable indeed...
