In reply to Christianity and me, maybe harsh., posted by James K on February 9, 2006, at 2:52:21

I'm terribly sorry for what you went through. It's sad that PEOPLE treat each other the way they do. I don't remember where it is in the Bible, but I believe there were harsh words for someone who caused another to fall away.
In any event, I don't believe that it's God who is the author of your strife, but man. Evil people, acting in God's name. People who claimed to speak for God, or who claimed to know God's will. That was the case in my life, at least, and I can't believe I'm unique.
So now I'm Pagan. Does that mean I've rejected God? Not at all. To me, it means that I've come to a broader understanding of deity. I believe that man has put artificial constraints around what we call God, and I've tried to remove them.
As such, I can actually better accept the Faith of my parents without personally adopting it. I can disagree without dismissing.
If you've seen some of my other posts, you'll see that I do have anger, but it's not toward God, but toward people who claim to interpret God's words.
I don't want to tell you how to live your life, or how to deal with God. That's personal and completely up to you. I think it would be easier though if you could come to some understanding of what was God's fault, and what was man's fault. Then you might be able to stop blaming God for the works of men. Then you'll be in a better position to evaluate your relationship with God.
Just my two cents....
