Believe in God, but most of the times i strongly disagree with the Church. Besides, God is found inside us, not in Church.

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

I admit, I've never understood the concept of being an Agnostic. Why would someone not want to search for the truth of life? I'm not saying you should become a Chritian or anything, but why don't you want to find out for sure what's real and what's not?

Well, long story short... I have searched for the truth of life. I long ago found that both 'the question' and 'the answer' are unattainable.

Spiritually, I'm comfortable with that. I hope, in some way, I answered your question.

Edit to add: Maybe we're not supposed to know.

I'm just curious in one regard. Why is this in the 'Ghost, Hauntings and Paranormal' forum?

Perhaps LiveForChrist1 can explain?

I'm sorry. I have to bump my post. Maybe this thread should be moved to the 'Spirituality vs Scepticism' forum, unless LiveForChrist1 can expand on their opening point.

2nd, I don't believe in either camp. The religious will never truly understand God and the irreligious will never understand the concept.
So you don't believe in god or you do?

Hmm, I guess I can understand where your coming from then. I just guess that I myself can't take that approach. I have to continue forward, no matter how little in the total universe I learn. I admit, while I've learned a lot and in fact got my start in the supernatural world through my searching I mainly just can't afford to stop *shrugs*.

I suppose it comes down to this, even if you can give up and let yourself fade away without fighting it I can't do that. I cannot and will not let my life become meaningless, I will find the truth and stick to it's path because if I don't then I become nothing.

Believing in something is healthy. Humanity has always explored this aspect of itself as evidenced by early burial sites and that the dead were cared for and not just cast off.

What I dont like about all these far right christians is ..... If I happen to not believe what they believe, then I am automatically wrong !! Everyone on this earth is entitled to believe whatever they believe, except for those who think Elvis is alive and living on the moon!!

No, when you approach it at that angle, you don't 'understand where I'm coming from' at all. :)

because *something* isn't always healthy. Like my example, scientology.
