Seeking
« on: July 06, 2006, 10:17:23 AM »

I come from a very religious Christian background.  My family went to church through most of my childhood, and most of the churches were southern baptist.  There was a time in my life where I was so involved in church activities that I was spending 3 to 4 days with my church.  I don't regret it one bit.  But now sadly I have fallen away some.  I am 29 years old and have only heard the doctrine of hell and brimstone and few will make it to heaven.  A couple of years ago my very open-minded knowledge-seeking cousin told me that he didn't believe in hell anymore.  I was astonished!  What?  I had never heard a friend or family member of mine ever question the traditional beliefs that are so deeply ingrained in our small southern town.  I disagreed with him respectfully.  But I told him that I was willing to listen to what he had to say about it.  He has touched on it some but really didn't go to indepth with it much.  ; So I happened apon your website and I was blown away.  It is in my heart that I need to seek the truth whatever it is.. and I am giving your theories careful attention.  I'm not willing to jump into any theories too quickly as I am seeking truth and with my open-mind I hope that God will reveal to me what I should believe.  I must say though you are very knowledgeable and convincing.  I will spend a lot of time going over what you have to say.  And I admire your courage.  It can't be easy to go against the establishment like this.  If my baptist preacher brother knew that I was even considering this he would be bothered by it.  But it's in the search for Truth.  Isn't that what it's all about?  Also if I might add... I'm very disappointed by the Hateful words that have been spoken to you from angry emailers.  Supposed Reverends and the like shouldn't be that way.  Shame on them.
