I do agree with you about their being a difference between religion and faith, but your idea of faith is just as man-made as you state religion is...

CarolAnn's reply:...Not really, my point was, that no matter what a person has Faith in, they should gather as much knowledge as they can(including reading the bible and other religious works)and let their own minds be guided to their own personal Faith in God. Rather than letting the ideas of mortal humans(how can any *human* presume to know the mind of God?)dictate what to believe about an Immortal Being such as God.

M F's words:
>> Most people don't like to look at the fact that there is absolute truth, because to acknowledge that would be the same as admitting their own limitations. I hope one day you do find the all-powerful, all-mighty, all-present God of the Bible...

C'Ann's reply: Who do you think I'm talking about when I say I have Faith? I have found the all-powerful, all-mighty, all-present God, This is "who" I have my Faith in. Why do I have to celebrate my Faith to the tune of words which may have come from God originally, but over time(and proven human error,mistranslation for example), may have become something entirely different from what God intended? Why do I have to believe in God the way that a specific "Religion" demands ie, Catholics and "the no birthcontrol" thing or Baptists and the "no drinking" thing?
I cannot claim to know the mind of God, therefore I cannot credit any other human being with knowing the mind of God. The only mind I can know is my own. And the best way to learn from my mind is to keep it constantly open to any knowledge that God wants to send my way, thus enabling me to find the "Absolute Truth" which God himself has designed for me.
This is my own personal philosophy and is in no way intended to convert or offend anyone!CarolAnn
