Someone please convince me of what you believe! - UPDATE
If you are 100% confident that you are believing/following the "right religion", could you explain how/why you are so sure? I've grown up in church, and still go with my family. However, I have always had doubts and still do. I continue to try to "be a Christian" because I don't want to cause conflict with my family and because I'm scared of going to Hell if there is one.
I am tired of not being sure of what I believe. But there seems to be no proof of anything. I hate spending so much time and resources, and raising my kids to do the same, for something that I'm not even sure I agree with. But if it IS true, wouldn't it be better to have believed it and be wrong than to not believe it and be wrong?
I'd like to hear about why everyone believes what they do. No one at my church has been able to answer my questions satisfactorily.
UPDATE: I just wanted to thank everyone for your responses--you've given me a lot to think about! I will check out your links, suggestions and books etc. Thanks!
