Need To Hear From Religious Agnostics...


Recommended Posts

Hi, friends. I'm writing a book for Morehouse Publishing on how people live out their faith. To do this I have a survey that I've been circulating via the web, but I'm having a devil of a time getting feedback from folks who identify as "religious agnostics."

 

Since this is one of my categories of "faith styles" I cannot proceed with writing the book until I get some input from folks. I'm hoping you all can help me, because I think this is a very important way of living one's spirituality, and would like to see the opinions and perspectives of "religious agnostics" represented in the book.

 

Just for your info, I define "religious agnostics" as those who don't know if there is a God or gods, but choose to practice a historic (or eclectic) faith anyway, living a dialog of faith and doubt that is both challenging and rewarding. I identify this way myself, and I am sure there are others out there. I belong to a TCPC-affiliated church, and I'm hoping that there are others on the TCPC board who do as well.

 

Would any of you be interested in helping me out by answering a simple survey? If so, please send a private email to: jmabry@apocryphile.org.

 

Thanks for your help.

Well I don't know, we might have some lurkers who are agnostics, but most of us are trying to live out a progressive faith-- not agnostism. You might see if there is an agnostic board. Gosh knows there is everything else. There should be one. Google it and maybe look on belief.net?

 

Good luck,

Hi John,

I'd consider myself a (sort of) religious agnostic (mostly agnostic!), and I'm new to this message board. Basically, I stopped believing in Christianity (although not the idea of 'God' generally) about 15 years ago, but I still try to maintain a moral/ethical framework in my life that's based on the teachings of Jesus and others. Since the birth of my son a year ago, I've felt that it's not enough, but I'm not quite sure what to do about it, and I'm not sure if I'm ready to call myself a Christian again.

 

Anyway...I suppose that's a story for another posting!

 

I'm an academic and a researcher, so I'm always glad to help out a fellow researcher when I can! Let me know what I can do for you.
