I grew up going to a Baptist church and I can remember how wonderful and excited I felt when I thought I knew it all and Jesus was the only way. In college, I started questioning my beliefs once I learned about other religions and I have been lost spiritually ever since. I haven't been to church in about 10 years, mainly b/c I don't quite believe and I feel judged being there. I want to be open to having some type of belief but I have no idea where to begin. I don't understand how all these other religions are wrong and Christianity is the only way.
I do believe there is an afterlife; I just don't want to go to hell if I am wrong and I was suppose to keep following Christianity. Does anyone have any advice or have felt this way?

You don't have to have it all figured out. Start reading some books on spirituality and pray, I really feel it's the journey and not the destination that we are suppose to be working at. Also keep a journal about what matters to you and things you are grateful for and use this as a basis for your prayers.
