I agree this is a problem.

I can say for certain that I do not blindly believe in God. It means I have less faith but takes care of that whole doubt problem. I can also assure that you're no stranger to God, though remember what it was like when God was a stranger to me. To cure this, you have a direct line, an opportunity to talk directly to God. It doesn't even to be out-loud, just close your eyes and speak with your mind/heart, "Hey God...". If the connection doesn't seem to be working at all for ya, feel free to message me, that's perhaps something I could help with.

Number 2 is clear. I have volunteered my time and my children's time to assisting the needy, getting involved in community events and so forth.


Awesome to hear! I've learned it is a great blessing to be able to give.

I guess it boils down to brands, in the end.


Christianity is unique in that it doesn't matter how many good deeds a person does. There are no 'points' that will earn a person's way into heaven. Other religions hand out spiritual report cards of sorts.

You are 'above the conspiracy' in this case. I'm striving towards making less excuses in my life as well, it is a work in progress. As others have pointed out (and the Bible as well), going to church isn't a requirement to be saved but there are a lot of intangible benefits.

It's one of those services where the congregation get's to say their piece and everyone get's an equal say. Praise the lord and pass the plate....


Gotta love it. A reasonably 'free press'. At least for the time being.


Well said Tecumte. This is also what I was meaning about going to church versus going to Church...and thank you all for attending.
