Go me too. Weee!!!!

One night I ventured to my wooden rocking chair right outside my back porch, and I looked to the sky in the break of twilight, staring into the dark mirror of space, filled with sands of star dust, colossal supernovas and red giants, strings of wormholes and distant planets beyond my grasp. A place where tiny enigmatic hidden black holes tear through the fabric of space and time which, who knows; may lead into other dimensions and perhaps alternate realities. And as I look up at this heavens mirror which my hands can only reach so far through this looking glass, I felt an odd sensation of something looking back staring into my own eyes, staring into a whole other universe of which I new nothing about until I saw my reflection within it, and in that moment I then knew that the key which open the portal doors to parallel worlds was myself.    "The Eyes of the Universe, Chris Landrum"

I am a Christian who lives and worships as the New Testament says that a Christian should. original.gif

I spent most of my life as a non-believer for all practical purposes. It was'nt until I decided to put my own particular mishmash of beliefs to the test that I came to Christianity. I spent the better part of a year looking into what I then believed to be true, religion in general, and the truthfullness of the Bible. As much as I could, I tried to look into every belief system known to man, figuring that the "Truth" could come from anywhere. I know that there are alot of offshoots and branches of belief systems that were missed, but you have to narrow your parameters somewhat.

A friend asked me at that time what I was working on, and I told him that in part I was looking into whether or not the Bible was true. "That could take a lifetime.", he said. "I know." I replied, reminded of the immensity of just that one part of my overall search for truth.

I firmly believe that the Lord helped me to find the truth, as the Bible says that he will do for anyone. "The Lord is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.", it says.

I believe it.

I'm a Christian.  I believe in God, and Jesus.  The bible, however, is a different story.  I don't doubt the entire thing, it's just that, it may be the word of God, but it was written by humans.  And in a totally different language, so tons of stuff was probably lost in the translation.  Plus, some of the stories were probably imbelished by preists to scare people, well, straight.

I'm.. not sure what you could classify my beliefs as.

Polytheistic..

Belief that every thing has a spirit.  Much like the beliefs of the native americans.

I also believe that the cures to everything, can be found in nature.. And I've studied herb(ology?)

I put every life form above my own..  I've risked my personal safety catching "dangerous" animals for relocation, instead of allowing Animal control to kll them.

From the age of 6, i was "Wiccan" (as is my father).  Some of those beliefs stay with me, including the Rede.. But my over all view has changed..  I'm not sure if i can still be considered wiccan, or if it's grown into something stronger.

My GF (who was an ancient history/religion major in college)  says my beliefs border between Wicca, and Shamanism..

Damned if i know.

Dear cryslal3rose, if you really believe that there's something not right or untrue about The Bible, then you owe it to yourself to look into it and find out If this is the case or whether a dangerous assumption has been made.

Take it from someone who tried really hard to dis-prove The Bible before I was became a Christian, it's not as easy as some would have you believe.

What I found over and over were character judgements of God, and the people involved in the events of The Bible; not actual evidence that it was false mind you, just things along the order of "What kind of God would allow this.." These are character judgements that don't prove anything but our willingness to try and judge OUR judge!

Yes men, and in some cases women were behind the physical writing of the various books of The Bible, but they were guided into Truth through the agency of The Holy Spirit. Without this aspect we cannot be assured of the truthfullness of the Biblical accounts. For me it's quite simple: find one single error that has no possible answer other than it was made up and the credibility of The Bible, and in my opinion, God himself would be destroyed. This cannot happen if there is a perfect God. If there's an imperfect god then how could we trust anything that any work revealing his will would proclaim?

The Bible says many things about God. It says that he's not the author of confusion. It says that he's given us all things that pertain to life and godliness through The Bible and that all scripture is given by his inspiration. It also tells us that he's not willing that any should perish(This is speaking of eternal death;condemnation)but that all should come to repentence.

The answers are definetly out there for those who care to look. We just have to be willing to admit that it's possible that we don't already know it all and be ready to admit that perhaps, we were in fact quite wrong in our assumptions and change our lives accordingly.

My prayers and love are with you all
