Hello, I Am Agnostic.

My family's hard core Christian. I've never taken church seriously. I've been going to them forever. As a pastor's child, I've always considered religion as a basis for family issues, e.g. "Why can't you get a real job??"

Anyhows, I had to live on my own for a while, and when Sunday came, I had a choice; do nothing all day, or go to a church. The latter was the norm, as I've been doing for the past few... No, for my life. And my friend's in this church, so I went to that.

GOod thing I did. It was a good place with fun people. Too bad there weren't any hot chicks. But these young adults were the people you'd want to hang out with, just because of the positive vibe they have. So I stuck.

Currently, I don't believe in the Jesus stuff - that he died on the cross, "for us", that he even existed etc. But one thing's fo sho, dawg: I want to live a life with Christian values. What I mean by that is to live with Christian ideals, e.g. be forgiving etc... and I've acquired a bible.

I've hardly read, but my favourite verse so far: "Be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise, but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil". I don't buy that "because the days are evil", but other than that, it's a really nice verse.

I can totally relate...

Yes, I agree that the Christ's "way of living" was very commendable. [If indeed he did exist! I think, on balance, that he probably did.] However, I also feel that many people who consider themselves Christians do not in any way live up to these values. I don't include you in these people :)<br />
Personally, I just try to treat others as I would want to be treated...
