I know my Father exists,He changed my life dramatically,
I have not always been the way that i am now,nor because of his
boundless love and Grace will i remain the same as i am now.
To the aspect of religion,unfortunately,yes,there are many things done in his name by his people,things that are embarrassing and shameful,Sometimes i
shake my head at what is done,and done by those that i call Brothers and Sisters but in remembering"But there for the Grace of God go i"
Let me assure you that there will be judgment on all things,God say that every idle word and deed shall be judged and in that day there will be much
As for looking for him,he says"Those who seek me shall find me' the key to this is to not look at what others do nor say,I know that is hard to do
as they(and myself) are supposed and claim to be his representatives and frankly we do a poor job of it sometimes,Things that are harder to find but
show the true heart of God in this life are the things that we do not see easily as they are people who serve God with no desire for recognition or
reward but do so out of love for him,They feed the hungry,minister to the sick and seek to bring joy and love to a world that seems devoid of it,they
sacrifice their lives to serve God and others and give all that they have,you never hear of these things but i have seen them with my own eyes and
know that it would change your mind if you saw them too.
God has given us free will to do as we see fit and the heart of man is one
that seeks only itself,Only through the power of his love and the resurrection
can the heart of man be changed.
As an aside,as i know that i fought with this for a while,God is not interested
in changing your clothes and tastes and haircut and whatnot,these are the things that you are,he made your personality and it is unique,he seeks your
heart,to make it like his,one of love of others and of good and one that seeks not its own but looks to him as the perfect Father and friend
Hope this helps some
