Might as well jump in. I have a Christian (Baptist) background. Because my religion expects you make a public profession of faith, I did not become a Christion until I was 34. I am 53 now. Over these nearly 20 years I have tried to understand God's PURPOSE more so than His truth. Becoming a Christian means selflessness, submission and thankfulness. It does not mean you will be healed, be happy, be loved, or be avenged. It simply means faith...period. I struggle with the worship and praise aspect of our belief (which denies the worshiper independence and self worth). How do you resolve these things?

> Yes, we do have the ability to believe what we want and how we want but that does not make it true. I'm presently typing using a Micronpc computer...that's true. There is One God that is also true. Just because I believe one thing and you believe another doesn't mean we both hold the truth. Truth cannot contradict each other, therefore one is true and one is not. So since we both would argue our belief, who is right? Absolute truth is available to anyone who is ready to deny oneself and embrace the only one true God that is found in Christ Jesus. Like my original post said: The Truth Hurts...and it sets us free. If you choose to deny Christ he will give you what you ask when you die. And that is to live a life without him, and you will have just that. The choice is ours to make...this is truth, you cannot argue with truth.
