Greetings friends. My name is Thomas Matthew Blicharski (you can find me on Facebook) and I consider myself a believer - but unfortunately I think most of you would not. Anyway, the point is I wish to learn more about God, about others and myself. I want to both express myself and grow with others on this message board. And hopefully I'll be able to do that regardless of what I think may be artificial divisions.
Love you all and God bless!
I can relate to what you say about not being thought of as a believer by others.
My path has taken me to many places and I now wonder how appropriate the word 'Believe' is to describe my spiritual state.
Often that word deals with the intellect and although it is good to have some intellectual understanding of these matters, I feel unable to really know the whole truth of Christ's Glory from a human perspective.
In a sense I prefer the word "Faith" to "belief" because it is closer to my sense of knowing deep inside myself that Christ is with me.
God bless you too Thomas
