I appreciate your post and your sharing of your understanding. I encourage you to continue searching. I've never heard a person regret the journey that comes with prayerful searching. However, I would seriously ask, "Is it better to not know or to know too much?"

I've always thought if we're ready to receive the understanding, it'll be there. Sometimes it'll be something you don't particularly want to know. Other times it will be pleasant and exciting.

There are thousands of religous denominations. No one really wants to know if one is true. So, we tell God what we will and won't believe, and then we ask him for answers to our questions. How much faith and trust does it take for God to lead us to the answers we thirst for? If we hunger and thirst for answers as much as we do for food and water, and our desire is as strong as our need, and our prayers are sincere, we'll discover the answers to the questions, "Who am I? Where did I come from? Why am I here? and Where will I go when I leave this life?" It's all here and fully explained, but most people really don't want to know when it comes right down to it. So, I could say I have answers, and I'm willing to share, but there are so many who are convinced that I have been deceived, and so anxious to point it out, so what's the point? I have my answers, others have theirs, I'm satisfied, are you? I'm not trying to be rude. I've just had bad experiences trying to share what people want to believe but don't really want to hear.
