Thanks for your reply, Quath, it was quite objective. Generally speaking I like that. As far as what a person believes is concerned the point I'm trying to put out here at the forum is, it has to be what she really believes. If she is clear on what that is. Often we aren't.
It isn't necessarily what you tell people. I'm not saying you ought to lie to people, just saying you don't owe people an answer just 'cause they ask for one.
I have some issues with the Bible and with many of the believers you mention 'cause there are many of us Christians who don't go along with every word in the ancient writings, no more the idea that all churches ought to be uniform. I would like you, an outsider, to be open to the idea that I might be telling a true story.
