    My evolving journey

    Im not so sure that having understanding brings internal satisfaction. If it did then everyone who had understanding/knowledge would be in a good place, but as we both know that is not the case. My conviction is that man has an inner longing to find something that for most is missing in their lives, we all know that materialism & the intellect cant fill that void

    Apologies I should have used the word "if one" rather than your. It's interesting how quick misunderstanding takes place on forums. I think that there are many people out there who have their faith in their faith/beliefs, I think to some degree I was one of them. Christianity ends up being about believing the corporate message. Once you start with the Bible as the infallible word of God, its difficult to disagree, because if I do, I'm not disagreeing with whoever I'm disagreeing with God. For me this is about allowing people to believe whatever they want. My question is: "is it working for you" Is it producing peace, joy and contentment"

    my first impression of your comments is they rather judgemental

    I guess if you've got your faith in any of the above systems you mentioned you're in trouble already.

    I'm not sure that Spong's book is for those who've lost their faith, I think its for those that have a strong faith but have rejected literalism. I for one have not lost my faith but I have certainly walked away from literal fundamentalism. I find his books insightful and faith inspiring. It's not about the doctrine its about the story and what speaks to your heart.

    I'm not sure. I guess one of the questions we need to ask is, why did the early disciples follow Jesus? From what I've read none of them sounded very religious other than Paul. I think they were attracted to the power He had in His life. Today its very hard to consider Jesus without dialling up the Bible, Church or religion. For me the issue that makes people religious is: dogmatism. I was on a "Christian Forum" and the 1st time you mentioned anything that people didn't agree with, meaning there didn't understand you got send a page of scriptures to back up there position. My response to that is: "Get a Life"

    When I suffer you can pay, sounds fair to me.

    Biblical Sexuality

    We have followed the case with interest. Our situation is a little different. Firstly no kids involved, and Coco is my wife's Japanese girlfriend, so legally it leaves me out the loop, as legally i'm still married to 1 wife. It just so happens that they are both bi-sexual. Its been working well for several years and neither of us plans on walking away.

    I'm in the process of reading Biblical Literalism, (A Gentile Heresy) by John Spong. Its a great book, as an ex fundamentalist this book confirms my rejection of literalism which started several years ago. Other great books Iv'e read in the past few years are: Hand Me Another Brick Charles Swindoll Open Marriage George & Nina O’ Neil Love Wins Rob Bell Sexual Liberation Raymond Lawrence Leaving Christianity to Follow Jesus James Jones Why I’m an Atheist Who Believes in God Frank Schaeffer The Four Agreements Don Miguel Ruiz Battlefield of the Mind Joyce Meyer What is the Bible? Rob Bell Sex at Dawn Christopher Ryan & Cadida Jetha All the above are highly recomended. Terry

    Food rationing could start soon. I'm a Brit living here since 2005. Love lots about living here but some of it not so keen on. Im sorry to say that this is a province that is partially filled with not very bright people. Terry

    Presidential Poll

    Isn't balance the hardest thing to find. the US needs the diplomat, it also needs the out the box business man/women, sadly both come with lots of baggage and it's usually the baggage we dont like. Often politicians are bound up with a fear of man and become a political juggler and the entrepreneur business man is usually a narcissist, bully and one man band. Hello Mr Trump
