I mean, specifically what do you know about me and my beliefs, that you can declare that I am indeed "missing it"?
Please do enlighten me if you care to be so bold.
Especially since I was raised in the church.

being raised Catholic,i had the basics,the Trinity,virgin Mary, heaven and hell.... I also felt I was missing out,listening to other kids talk who were different religions and being taught more. The best metaphor I can come up with is like learning about a butterfly,you ask what is is and get the simplest answer,a butterfly. If you are still interested you will ask more?? or research on your own,or else be happy witht the basic answer.It seems to me you got the basics but were not interested so you did not crave more information.

Actually, I've been around for a while tnm. I was much more active before the "credit system". A few of you I remember from years ago when I frequented this forum way back when beeky was here. It's been years since I was a regular but I see it's the same debate over and over and over and over again. I believe that's why I stopped coming.It just felt pointless after a while.
I can appreciate learning about others and challenging my own beliefs but it seems that many here don't actually want to hear what Christians have to say or why we believe what we believe. When we share what we believe, or share scripture citing what we believe we get blasted from the get go, mocked, made fun of, ganged up on & on some posts people even intentionally mock God and joke about Him. I'm going back to my happy place!

Deedee's heart is closed to Allah, I suspect, as well as to Zeus, Odin, Buddha, Shiva, and thousands of other icons and deities of other religious and spiritual beliefs. Shame on you, deedee, for closing your heart to all of them. All they want is for you to love and honor them, and they will show you the beauty, depth and salvation of their religions.
OP, all you need is the FSM. Remember: He boiled for your sins. RAmen.
