I agree with your post Texasbelle. I think everybody has their own way or worship. Some real deep and others that like to stay on the surface. I am OK with either one.

Did you have time in this life to read the Book ? There is no one that will make you read it. You read it not because you have to but because you want to.

I think it is a choice that people make to get up a few minutes earlier say at 5:30 for that quiet time to spend time studying the Word. For me this month, it's a study of David. What's your study ?

II Kings and I Peter. It amazes me just how much there is to be learned and the fact that you never can learn it all. People do hobbies and read to relax and do it for the challenge ? When someone is ready for THE challenge it is time to pick up the BOOK and read. One of my favorite parts of the Bible is the power struggle between David and Saul and how well David handled himself. Good post Tbelle.

The sad part is a few people attack me and my religion, and say they only follow what is written in the Bible. I gave biblical references and the Catholic interpretation, and my points are discounted with "waiving incense and holy water". There is no research, no willingness to learn, no willingness to take a deeper look. I am not trying to convert, I am trying to educate. I want people to know the how, what, and why of the Catholic Church.

Catholicism is the last socially acceptable prejudice in America. There are so many misconceptions, and many non-Catholics believe that if one Catholic scorns them, the whole Catholic Church must be bad. The fact is, people of every race, color, religion, ethnicity have the ability to scorn you.
If you think Catholism gets the heat, try being a Pagan in the Bible Belt. Everyone thinks we're devil worshippers and refuse to admit otherwise. There are a lot of hate mongers out there.

Anywho, I'm sure no one is trying to attack your religion, Matty. No one has ever tried to attack my religion (except for BSr). I tend to discuss my religion only with those who legitimately and respectfully prompt me for it. Those who come at me with an attitude or insults will either get ignored or get my own attitude in return. I don't play others' games when discussing religion. I keep an open mind so that I can give others their fair share of space and I expect the same treatment in return.

Anime, so far by you admitting the Pagan thing it has severly limited my ability to get your a date. Actually, I've been unable. Would you consider giving God a try?

Already did, more than once, and it is simply not my path. I won't pretend to be faithful to a God that isn't my own. I know God would not want me at church anyway if I was only there to get a date. And no woman who takes religion so seriously that she can't overlook my being a Pagan would respect me if I must pretend to be a Christian to keep her.

Sorry, but I won't convert just because I am single. It would be unfair to me, that potential date, and unfair to God.

There are open-minded Christians out there who can overlook their partner's religion while keeping their own. Those relationships can work. I could care less what my partner's religion is and I know that I am not the only one who feels that way.
