I just linked here from a search and saw your post and cared enough to join this site so I could respond to you. I am a very devout Christian, but I
am also very intelligent. Just to reassure you. :-). I have a Phd and I use to be a scientist.
I see a soul crying out for meaning in an aparently meaningless universe. But there is truth. I am going to respond to you from several angles, but
if you are into science I suggest you check out Hugh Ross and Reasons to Believe. He has a Phd in Astro Physics and use to teach at Cal Tech. He uses
science to prove the existence of God. Two of his books are "Beyond the Cosmos" and "The Creator and the Cosmos." Astrophysicists have proved for
years that there has to be an intelligent Creator of the Universe. The rest of science just hasn't caught up to them yet. And science has become very
Also, although I don't know if it will appeal to you, but I died about 20 yrs. ago. I saw many things in the spiritual realm and I know God is real;
so are angels, demons and heaven and hell. The Bible states "The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge." I was researching something completely
different today. I hit a link and ended up on your post. God uses His servants (me for one) to help others find Him. I think God is reaching out to
you. Just ask God to reveal HImself to you. He will if you humbly ask.
Also, we have a body, a soul and a spirit. I think your soul (which includes your mind) and your spirit are battling over the concept of hell. Hell
is real and the only reason we need salvation. So, you are on the right track and very honest. I was impressed you were so vulnerable in your post.
I will pray for you.
