Thanks for the contribution silentlonewolf. You are right, it's not a winable argument to debate what religion holds the truth, and I think the key
is that all of us who consider ourselves "more spiritual" in general, whether we adhere to a specific religion or not, are on the right path.
As for the story about the woman you knew who was thrown out on the street for all intents and purposes, this does not exemplify Christianity. I can
understand why the school did this, but not why they didn't provide for her at the same time, so that she wasn't put in a position of having no
future. This is wrong, and to treat anyone as if they have made a mistake and are condemned forever for it, is also not Christianity.
The bottom line, as you pretty much stated, is once these discussions have turned to debate, in the instance of religion and beliefs, it's only
option is to deteriorate into my stated pitfall, because it is an unwinable argument.
MrWupy, I just want to point out, that in spritual growth, it's not always a case of coming and/and or growing in and out of an organized religion.
There are instances where you can continue to grow within a creed, once you find the truths within it that are the teachings of God, and get beyond
the teachings of man. Finding a path within an "organized" religion does not always mean that you are trapped by the teachings of man over God.
