I don't know your reason's but?.
If it is just about not finding anything in the church itself then try another denomination, something new and alive like a baptist, born again or
similar church just to see if you like the feeling and find people whom truly believe around you or perhaps if your looking for a pastor whom is
taking his inspiration from what he feel's is the holy spirit guiding him rather than dogmatic teaching's from a central vatican office.
Sometime's the catholic mass can become very tediouse and you can get the feeling that half the priests either don't believe or have themselves lost
the spark that put life into there sermon's and I doubt this is just the catholic church.
If you have simply lost faith then that I can not help but like I say try one of these other church's, I don't see it as leaving the church but
simply going to another room in Christs house and if you find a church with believers rather than just old gossip's then believe me the atmosphere is
completely different but your not there just to be with them except in that fellowship is a fundemental part of Christian faith but you are there to
be with God and that is only possible were Two or More are gathered to be with him and by so gathering he is with them.
So remember a church can be as small as two people so long as they share that reason for being there, it can also be thousand's and not everyone whom
claims to be a christian or even goes to church is a christian, take politicians for example, a lot of them only go to church for social or appearane
reason's and because they think it can win them votes but in reality they could not be further from the church even though they are sitting in the
But if you simply don't believe then I don't know the answer, I think though of Padre Pio a man whom perhaps SHOULD have been the pope, but then the
real church is a spiritual body, it is not divided by denominations or name's and exists in all faithful whom gather in the name of christ or whom
wish they could regardless of Confirmation nonsense or which sect they were baptised into - if they come to christ in there heart he see's and knows
it and there are many faithful whom have walked away from the church's various denomination's simply because of uninspiring sermon's and boring
priests hungering for something they could not find, what they were searching for was the living word of christ.
If you seek him you will find him but if you truly do not want to find him then I can only wish you well, but ask yourself are you being called to
something else by him.
