Seeking answers is part of building faith, therefore your education is key in building it. If you do not learn and ask questions, and research and educate yourself about your own beliefs (as well as others) then you will never grow a deep relationship with our Creator. Just knowing he is up there and praying to him isn't being his friend. I also believe that no matter what our beliefs are we should educate ourselves on the beliefs of others in order to understand them, even if we may not agree with them.
Through apologetics it has helped me understand the difference between religion and faith, and understanding more about both is very important. If there is no understanding then what can I stand for? If I am not standing for anything am I really alive? I could go on....
To address your question, education helped me see the flaws with in myself so that I could grow spiritually. Other people's flaws are not something I need to concern myself with, But I can offer help.
here is a quote from a personal friend of mine,"I can't, he can, I choose to let him."
It is something I think of often.
Education, more specifically history has helped me understand where we have been, the key players, triumphs and tragedies. Without knowing these things, we are doomed to relive all previous mistakes. It becomes evermore apparent that evolution in terms of replacing God is false. We evolve in methods and scientific discovery, but the people behind the instruments are no more evolved than the great thinkers thousands of years ago, we just have more accurate data.
Education has helped me to realize that real faith, religiosity and spirituality can only be truly reached through more knowledge, more education and more personal experience and not by blindly accepting what priest, bible and ANY OTHER authority or book says. Knowledge=truth=spirituality. It may take forever, but it is the right way in my opinion. And I wouldn’t change it for a DOGMATIC shortcut for anything.
It has made me stronger, broaden my vision, and made me much more resilient. I have obtained a inner freedom that tell me that I have no need to fear what happens to me after this life. I gotten to know God on a much deeper level and still going strong. It has also given to me, so that I would have something to share with others who are just entering the Christian family. To me, its all about getting, giving, sharing, helping, then getting more..so the cycle continues...
