> I am looking to know if what was said in the Bible is true. Not just true on a philosophical basis, but true true. Meaning, it's real, and these entities (Jesus, Christian God, etc) truly exist as described here in this world.

<<<<Why hasn't God made it easier to know? Because He hopes we will believe through faith. Faith can move mountains because faith harnesses power. How we harness faith should be our quest.
He loves us enough to allow us our choice, but hopes we will choose him. Faith, hope and charity is a two way street with God.

> If they do exist, I am willing to cooperate. They are welcome in my heart.
> If not, I will be done with it and move on. I have no desire to adopt just another human being's philosophy. I am not looking for a self-help book. I am looking for a history book.

<<<Eventually all will be known, just be patient. The Bible is not a secular history book as much as religious history. Humanity started out with the same belief, and it has been passed down through the generations. Each religion has bits and portions of that religion. For instance in my religion we have a temple ceremony that we believe was on the earth in the days of Adam, Enoch, Noah, Moses, etc. People have accused us of piecing it together from fragmants found in Masonry, Dead Sea Scrolls, etc. If you were to study the other major religions I'm sure you would see similarities, even some of the same phrases in all scripture as the Bible. So, how is a person to know which if any is true, when there are so many differing versions of religion?

Through faith, God teaches us little by little, precept by precept, here a little, there a little. He teaches at our own level in our own understanding, and will never give up on anyone. So, why would you give up on Him?

Someone said they didn't know who the Holy Spirit was, speaking about blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. That only applies to a person who has seen God, who knows for certain He exists, and then goes against Him by blaspheming. No one needs worry about being thrown out. Don't get discouraged. It's not a race. Each person is entitled to his own personal relationship on his own level with God.

My belief may be different than other Christians, but it is what God has taught me. I have faith that God will teach you too, but you've got to ask.
