Hello, I will say thank you tentmakers for sending me 2 books as gift. I am an 45 old woman living in germany. The books reached me in a time in which I was very unhappy with my little church. I stumbled over tentmaker, because I agree with your confidence, that there can not be an all loving good and the future for nearly the wholo mankind to will be tortoured in hell. I have seen in this time also the book "So You Don't Want to Go to Church Anymore " frome Jacobsen and Coleman on your side and red this. I was so in an inner trouble about my little church, that with the help from this side, that I could leave my church. But the beviour from my sisters and brothers in this church hurt me so much, that I was questioned my whole belief and let me ask if this kind of christian belief let people became so crued, and if the god of the bible realy the oll loving fathere, that I met in my life. So I questioned the existence of good also. I can understand the topics of atheists so good. Few of my friends are atheists and they are more loving people as a lot of my sisters and brothers in church.
I don't know why, but I am again on the search for answers for my questions about god, spirituality, the reason for live. But I am also on the search for love with may father God (if he really existent) and to love christians, even if they hurt me so much.
This is my intro. I don't know if I have enough selfconfidence to post much messages, because it is hart for me to write in puplic, specially in english. But I will read the messages and discussions at this site with interessted. Happy that you are there.
