  • There is nothing wrong with seeking answers if you do not feel you have found them. Proverbs 2:1-9 highlights the need to seek understanding, wisdom and the very knowledge of God. Jesus said at Matt 7:7 to "keep on asking...keep on seeking..." However, the purpose of studying the Bible is not simply to find what "feels good." Assuming you are talking about Christian faith ( since you did say "church") It is necessary to do as 1 John 4:1 says, to "Test the inspired expression..." That holds true whether it is religion passed down in the family or whether you are searching in other churches. It boils down to this- do you worship your mother? Or do you worship God? It is up to you to make an educated, researched choice. "This means everlasting life,"Jesus said, "their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ."- John 17:3. Choose prayerfully (Matt 5:3)

  • No. Why would it be wrong?
    You need to go with what is right for YOU not what is right for HER. Only you know how you feel and what feels right for yourself

  • eAbsolutly not! Follow your heart! I tried Buddhism! I didn't as any family memeers their opinion. I also chose my husband alone too. There are some things and some relationships you want to decide for yourself.

  • Of course it isn't wrong, you have to do what is right for you regardless of what your mom thinks about it.
