Hi,
I am not entirely sure I am in the right place. I have recently become interested in moral issues and doubtful about my prior atheism. I have found our society's move to utilitarian ethics worrisome and have found myself, surprisingly, in agreement with Christians when debates arise over issues such as euthanasia, death, moral duty, and so on. I have no great religious experience as my parents were atheists/agnostics and thus have no experience of church while growing up. This leaves we a bit in the wilderness. I have gone to some churches but have found the sermons, though interesting, not a place for discussion or helpful for self instruction. I don't even know which churches to go to - I am not clear about the differences between them.

I suppose what I am saying is that I am not sure I am a Christian. I agree with what I know of his teachings and he was an admiral person and I do feel that there is an external moral code to which we try to aspire.  But due to my upbringing I am rudderless. Had I been born in the Middle East I might have been posting this on an Islamic forum or a Hindu one had my birth been in India. However, I was born the UK and have grown up in Europe with a culture which has a large Christian heritage so I find myself here.

If I am in the wrong place let me know. Be as robust as you like as I am not thin skinned.

Cheers

Hi henacynflin and welcome here.
Not being rude, but what sort of name is henacynflin, or is it just a made up web name?

Anyway, you are in the right place to explore faith in Christ and God. But take note that we are also exploring and we don't all agree with one another!

Probably the most important thing to recognise is that God loves people who explore after him. Also that if we turn to God and ask him for wisdom, then he will give it to you because he loves you.

So don't get stuck just trying to study God, start talking to him, you will be surprised at what you find.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)
