I am curently trying to pin down my religious afilitation...

is it weird to make an appt. with different churches just to talk about doctrine and get my questions answered? I don;t want a Q&A from a website I want to hear it from a church leader/elder. I want heart felt specific answers to my questions. Especially sine I am trying to compare things. I am just trying to find my truth and need some guidance. Is that really weird?

  • Not weird at all. I would also try to attend a service in a church if you like what the leader has said. See how things are done, so to speak.

  • hmmm - good question. Not sure whether its weird or not . Searching for your own truth no matter what that is cannot be a bad thing.

  • I just don't know what to believe any more. I have been a devout Christian my whole life and I know I still have a love for, who is to me, the one and only true God. Then I think about that statement one true God. Is there others who are not the True God or was that in reference to false idols? Then I did a little research on Judaism and Hinduism and they are pretty similar in to the Christian faith in many aspects... Then I have learned that a lot of Holidays celebrated by the Christian faith are based around Pagan faith so I question the validity of Celebrating them. Christmas isn't even really Jesus birthday. Easter isn't really right either. I am just so confused the more I learn the more confused I get...

  • I don't think it's weird... many search until they find what they seek...

    I hope you find what you seek...

  • I don't think its weird. I think its a good idea. Talking, studying, etc, is all very important to help find your place, to know how you really feel/believe. Who better to help you realize whether or not you agree with a denomination and what it teaches than the pastor of a church, who really knows what it teaches? I think any pastor should be willing to discuss, too.

  • When my spouse and I were trying to find a synagogue (he was raised Orthodox, I was raised reform), we attended Friday night and Saturday morning services at several.
