So you're asking me or no
He is asking
And I asked you a question
I'm confused now
Really interested in the answer to my question
"Well, then why can't i just sit quietly with my KJV in my yard, read peacfully and reference some queries using the web, instead of going to a mass/ritual?"
"That's an answer you give when you are asked. But what if we ask the bible? - What does it say about that question ?"
These 2 questions
Go ahead, friend :)
So the first one
I never said you had to
I won't say you have to
May I rephrase it first? The second one
I've no clue, you can read the bible yourself and see
I thought it would be confusing
Church can be a powerful experience. Everyone singing and joining together as a community. All on the same page, sharing that energy of unity.
I agree, your point?
My point was, i can read the bible on my own and reference it, without having to join a church.
I've always seen church as polite peer pressure. Tbh. :)
Polite peer pressure
Are you implying sin is polite peer pressure
No, what I mean is, is that I wouldn't ever act or speak out of turn, out of respect for the church or the religion - So should I happen to enter one, I end up participating
To me. A church like experience is going on a hike in the woods and hearing the wind in the trees. Listening to a stream. This is proof of a world and existence that is bigger than i am.
Okay then, y'all have seemingly walked your own way in this conversation I don't know what your opinions or points are so have a nice day and
How about this question: can i just believe in God and have that faith, without ever touching a bible or any other religious text?
That's where i am as of now.
For the longest time I've been an Atheist
I am questioning, now, though.
Due to recent experiences
Sometimes you have to take the long road to get to the easiest answer.
