How far out there will you go, in order to find the answers, or GOD's truth?

Are you willing to risk eternal damnation to find the truth of GOD? are you a seeker, or do you humbly obey what your pastor tells you?

I don't understand what you mean by risking eternal damnation to find the truth of GOD. I do seek the truth of GOD. I seek it in the bible, I do not follow blindly some pastor, any pastor, telling me what GOD 'means' by any passage. That does not mean that I do not listen to what other people have to say on a subject, but I reserve the right to follow GOD in the way I believe HE is leading me. I know that I do not understand all of what GOD is, I know I will continue to grow in knowledge of HIM. I follow to the best of my ability and hope you all do also.

well, actually what I meant was taking risks from tradition. you know, the normal belief.for instance, indeed learning from the bible, but also exploring what others believe, such as, new age or something! Indeed there is alot we do not know, you know?

Ahhhhhhhhhh, okay, then I am certainly not willing to risk eternity. There are things I find extremely discomforting about new age types of things. The notion that we are all 'god' is one of them. I think many sincere, good people are seeking answers, and some seem to be finding them in non-traditional ways. I do see that as 'risking eternity', I also see it as an individuals choice, to risk or not, ---------just not for me.

When I belonged to a Christian Church, (pentecostal) I was taught GOD was in all things. do you agree with this statement?

The way I look at it I dont seek nor do I follow. the truth will be revealsed to all of us in good time. The thing is do you have the patience to wait for it?

well, I have actually been pleasantly suprised by seeking, and it has made me a more fullfilled person. "knock and the door shall be opened unto you" kinda gal. yes indeed, I take a great deal of risks, I just keep my eye on the prize!
