Ok… so what I am hearing is that no one can agree. And it’s more than a disagreement on something inconsequential… I mean the discussion in the comments section of my previous post are pretty damn heavy.
I write that my faith has been declared dead on another blog, and everyone proceeds to comment and muddy the faith waters even further.
You would think that the Bible would be pretty clear about how one is to be certain of something as important as eternal life. Does it just boil down to a matter of opinion based on one’s interpretation of scripture (as defined by the multitude of denominations that abound)?
Seriously…the Baptists don’t agree with the Methodists who don’t agree with the Lutherans who don’t agree with the Catholics who don’t agree with the Church of Christ who don’t agree with the Seventh Day Adventist who might even be considered a cult…depending on who you choose to agree with.
To be honest, the stuff in my head tells me that it’s all bullshit. We don’t really know definitively about the subject. Seriously, I give up. It’d be easier just to go back to church (any church will do really) and believe everything they tell me. At least faith was simpler when I didn’t give a damn.
