New Age Spiritual Leader:<quoted text>
I, personally, am not seeking any "Creator", because I beleive differently than you.
"I believe that - somewhere, something, somehow, caused something to happen, which has caused all of this to occur."
Vague? Yes it is, because that is how much information I have to make any conclusions, so I don't make a conclusion.
Unlike others, who think the information provided by men, provide the individual with a conclusion.
The only conclusion one should accept for this discussion, is to not make a conclusion, because they don't have all the answers to begin with.
"Or is our attention drawn from imperfections in oneself, to a Perfect Creator, and that becomes religion?"
- this thought is only based upon and within those who think the Bible is true. Those of us who find that teh Bible is not accurate and full of errors, will believe differently.
- Like I said, I don't look for a "Creator" at all, but I do look for answers to the paranormal.
If Christianity is just another religion(to which you agree with June) then the question, "Or is our attention drawn from imperfections in oneself, to a Perfect Creator, and that becomes religion?" becomes a generalization.
A "traditional" Christian does not stop seeking Truth, while still in this world. But the Bible becomes a foundation upon, and means to which they might explore the Truth.
Those who stop seeking Truth, will be left behind. Jesus is out in front, leading the way, because he is the Way. And he is behind us, to encourage us to move forward, when we loose sight of him. He is above, within, and below us. The Kingdom.
