I'm not sure if I'm a Christian or not. I've been going to church my whole life because my mom is a ** Christian. I've sat through all the sermons and the prayers but I don't feel anything. I do think that God exists but I don't feel a love for him. I respect him and do believe that he saved me but I don't know if that's enough.
My church members always say pray and he will guide you but I don't feel anything. I don't his his presense as some people say. I don't want to say I don't love him but that's kind of how I feel. All I really see him as is a great person, like Martin Luther King Jr. or Ghandi, someone I can respect and look up to, but not as a personal friend who I love.
There is an awesome, awesome site called BeliefNet. (It used to be a .net, now it's a .com.) It's been around for years, and probably makes fundamentalists of all religions (especially Xtians) cry like little girls because it's not just informative, but is GENUINELY respectful and representative of *many* different belief systems.
Anyway, there's a quiz on there you can take to figure out about where you're at on the belief spectrum. Agnostic and atheist are both viable options too, despite what the religiots down below would have you think.
Jesus is the only way your saved, if you accept him as your saviour. Of your church isn't teaching that run from it as fast as possible.
Satan believes in Jesus and God but that's not getting him anywhere
Sometimes you can't find god in a church or through organized religion. Sometimes to experience god you need to look at his creations... What right does religion have to tell you how to speak to god. How to gave a relationship with your father. Imagine if some person claimed to be the voice if your mother... They told you that to speak to your mother, you would have to talk to them... And in turn they would tell you what your mother said... Now you don't gave to listen to this person... But if you don't you are going to **... What gives organized religion the right to invalidate the relationship that you have with God?
I'm also a born again Christian. Are you SURE that you're saved? I ask because I was raised in church my entire life and I always felt exactly the way you're describing. I never knew what people were talking about until I was 16 years old and, for the first time in my life, I felt God move in my heart. It was overwhelming and it moved me to the point of tears. I accepted Jesus as my savior right then and there and my life has never been the same. I now feel Him constantly. When I pray, I "hear" Him answer. Just keep seeking Him and He will call you. Read your Bible and pray. Keep going to church and eventually you will feel Him move in your life :-)
i am a born again christian and i really get where you are coming from. the one thing that helps is if you read the bible because god's word is living and changes us more into the kind of person he wants us to be. we can't decide to be 'good' because we sin all the time so don't worry too much about that aspect. God really does love you and these times are really tough and distracting us from what's really important. i'll even pray for you and may god bless you hey
