I'd like to discover enough answers to at least put my mind at ease. But I have come to accept the fact that I'm not going to get those answers from Christianity. In fact, I have come to realize that religion, rather than providing answers, mostly serves to make the world more confusing, frustrating and depressing.
Thanks for sharing your story. Do you think that your church is open to having members who are searching or questioning the faith, while still making positive contributions and staying involved in things like youth programs? In my own case, my boys and I were involved in Boy Scouts. We were well accepted, by and large, despite our lack of religious beliefs. I really appreciated hearing from the local leaders that they simply were not going to enforce the religious belief requirement. It made our participation a beneficial and fun experience.
