This is really hilarious DE...You've certainly stirred up a hornets nest...But, I think this was your intention..(i could be wrong, hehe) As for why do people pretend to be Christians? Personally I think we all seek in our minds a safty net..Something to fall back on and say there there, child..twill be alright...This is further proved by your actions...you stated you've tried several different "religions"...Or were you truly seeking that certain "one" that is harmonious to your own heart?...You ask is it to satisfy their pride at being called a Christian....I sincerely doubt it...Most Christians I know that ar'nt seriously devoted, would rather hide the fact of their Chrisianity...Myself..I don't go around bashing God's word at people either...Perhaps I should..But my faith isn't what it should be...As far as guilt being the motivation for refusing to practice what they preach, Beats me...I dont get it...hehe...And finally...turning the other cheek "drivel"...Might this be an idea that we as humans in our own stupidity just cant fathom..or are not prepared for?...you tell me...
one more question?~~~~I quote..."now and forever my heart hears one voice"...
Whose "voice" do you hear? Is it the voice of your head? or your heart?....Whatever name you give it, it still refers to ones conscience... But where does ones conscience come from...Myself, I think it comes from God....(but that's just my opinion.)
Something to think about.....hehe...have fun...Really enjoyed all the reading...You crack me up..
