Ian, honestly I am probably not a good Christian in the sense of going to Church every Sunday and studying the Bible and praying, etc. but on the other hand I try to treat people with respect, do unto others... you know and I try to live my life being a good person. Am I doomed to Hell?
I do question organized religion a lot simply because man is fallable and throughout history we have seen time and again man warping and twisting things to conform to his ideals. It is hard for me to just accept everything and take the Bible as gospal.
I also do not believe that Jesus or God plays an active role in man's day-to-day affairs and therefore not someone who praises Jesus everytime something good happens and I try not to be hypocritical and curse his name when something bad happens. I hate it when someone says "It is God's plan" when talking about someone dying. Is it God's plan when a baby is slaughtered? God's plan when planes fly into the World Trade Centers? God's plan that my parents are both dead and never got to see my son or my marriage? I certainly hope it isn't his plan or test or trial as some folks put it. I prefer to think that everything happens by chance and maybe your judged by how you dealt with it all.
I think Braceface put it the best. Hey, my brain causes me to question things that don't make sense to me. Don't blame me because of the way I am wired.
