I know that what you say is true but, many haven't the ability to think that way and I am just trying to have them find a sense of peace, outside, of Religion where, they exists with many doubts.
I am college schooled in Theology and attend many different Churches but, if you were to ask all the top men and women of the Religions of the World if, there is life after death for, (Certain) they will tell you that only by faith can you believe and we will find out after word.
They basically say "We are not sure."
I am not trying to change peoples religions just to add to them.
If you fear death or if death comes to you and the next instictive reaction is not faith based and you can have a good back up plan (This one.) then you can comfort yourself until your religion comes back and your faith is renewed. I am talking striclty about the actual event of death itself and not the thoughts we contemplate.
So GOD and JESUS forgive me father for I have sinned.
Was I not trying to help?
No hard feelings but, not everyone has the ability to be religious due to there logic base(A taught and learned imperical, scientific, logical proof.)
We sometimes are left out of Church until, a different World presents itself and we do not mean to be Agnostic or Athiest but, it happens.
I am, actually, quit obcessed with religion and am in many of them now. What I have (IN Biblical terms) is the "Doubting of Thomas".
An unsermountable problem in the belief of mircles or an afterlife with out the experiences to believe in.
It means that faith means imagination and imagination is not real to someone with the problem of the "Doubting of Thomas".
Maybe we should show people the (Effects) we get from religion thereby the experience to believe and Faith will come after the proof.
I am basically ticked off about getting tons of information and no so called "Special Effects" to prove it too me. How am I supposed to believe in a Religion when they speak it instead of showing it too your mind. Prayer, for example. I have been to many churches throught my 34 four years and did anyone show me or even tell me how to pray? Well, the answer and truth is (No). And that goes for Worship and every other parts of any Religion. So, you tell me, out of respect, how to believe when no one wants me too.
And, please, don't tell me I should have too ask.
P.S. - Maybe some one will help us and not shun us simply for not be helped. Since you live in a great World of Religion and are very happy inside Religion. What I want to let you know is this (Through all my studies). The World outside of Religion is a complete World of hell for all of us who just don't get it. It's not a sinners paradise. It's not fun and we have a harder time getting by. It's not fun. The only thing we can do about our problems is become scientists and fix the problems we find in the World our way so, please understand that I am trying to help.
Now, it is your turn to help us in your way!
Maybe we will finally be happy!
A dawnting task is ahead of you to show and just tell us how to be inside a Religion since we (Out here) are also in Search of truth.
What is true? Thank you for your oppinion.
