I don't want to push you or anything, but if I may suggest a church that I think would be perfect for you?



http://www.northpoint.org/



It's a church for the unchurched. You can attend one of the 5 campuses in Georgia or watch online from the comfort of your own home. There are no obligations, no pressures to "act" a certain way or be damned to hell. Maybe check it out and see if it's something you might identify better with? There are no services this Sunday because they give the staff the Sunday after Christmas off, but we start back January 6th with a series called "Breathing Room." You can also check out past series that we've done on the website and maybe see if it's something that you'd be interested in.



Anyway, whatever you decide, I wish you luck with your personal journey.

You wouldn't believe how many people threatened to get a lawyer against me or call CPS over my beliefs. Just because it wasn't Christian.

lol me too. Please share if you don't mind. :)
I myself have a strange mixture of crazy beliefs. Can't really claim any religion, but I don't even share with SO the extent of some of the things I believe. lol

ugh. one of the many reasons I cut off many of the people I associated with when I was christian. If it's not their way, it's wrong. :roll:

My husband is Christian, I am not, I have my own weird set of beliefs but he's never gone to church and I see him worship in his own way all the time. Church is just a social vehicle for worship but you don't need it to believe in and follow God. :)

Absolutely! I love it because I've had a lot of questions answered since starting to go there and I don't feel all that pressure to lead the "perfect" life and everything just makes sense now.

lol It's different than trying to explain it to someone in person because it even kinda sounds crazy in my head but hey, it's what I believe.



Basically, I think that we're living in hell. I think that you keep getting reincarnated until you earn your way into "heaven."



It makes me sound like I'm some super depressed psycho, thinking that I live in hell... just sounds crazy haha.

My cousin actually told me that she "knew" that the Rapture will happen in our lifetime and that I will be left behind. And that gives her hope because it would give me a second chance to choose the right path to save my soul. She said that while I go through the Tribulations to remember her and what she said so I could make the right choice.
I was like holy wtf?

there's also unitarian, which I don't personally know much about, but I've heard it's like a more relaxed version of christianity. Not too positive on that one, though.

Nah, I don't think you're crazy or depressed psycho. :)

I've theorized about the whole already living in hell thing, too.
