JLizNY:I wish you the best in your search. I can understand your feelings of "been there, done that". I think sometimes it's harder to be open-minded about something you're familiar with than it is to be open-minded about something totally new. I hope I don't sound presumptuous in saying this, but it could be that the flavor of Christianity you have experienced so far may not have been very real and genuine. Who knows. But I think there is a lot of crap to sort through out there, even just within the Christian church, and you have to trust your B.S.-o-meter. I grew up going to church too, but I didn't find out what it really meant to be a Christian until I was older and encountered people whose faith was really meaningful and had made a huge difference in their lives. I visited some different churches and found there was a whole lot more to it than I had thought before. And it made a huge difference in my life.Anyway, maybe as you explore different religions you might want to consider visiting a few Christian churches, where you could feel comfortable bringing up your "issues" with that faith, or do some reading on your own so you can compare things with an open mind.Good luck!gogreengo
