    HAHAHA, this question takes me back. See,I believe firmly in jesus,but I and many Christians had some very strong disagreements.I use to visit  churches on Sunday to get involved in the discussions and I would ask some pretty hard questions.I wouldn't ask them prove god exists;that's just for the unbeliever and even if I outlined all that I have seen during my days,they wouldn't believe.In fact, I have a hard time believing myself. yeah,I would ask questions to Catholics like If jesus said he will judge us and raise us from the dead in the end and he is the " SON" of god,then why does the father in the old testament say he would do it and no-one else? In the end I was thrown out the church(I was age 14 back then-I'm 20 now).I went to the Pentecostal and asked If you say the trinity is wrong and you claim to uphold the sabbath why do you promote the Sunday sabbath  which we know is the wrong day?They said You worship EVERYDAY,not just on Sunday.I said Yes,but what about the day of rest?Sabbath is a day of rest,not worship am I right?I was told I got that knowledge from my friends who was controlled by the devil(lol I was 14 and that's the church I was a member of).Believe it or not,I went to the Jehovah witness.I was invited by a member there(who was also my friend-I was 15).I asked a group of kids,my age, Why don't you believe the trinity,yet it's the same thing you preach. They couldn't answer and went for their teachers. The teacher told me,no the trinity believe there are 3 gods in 1.Then I said If you say Jesus is the son and Jehovah is the father,and the holy ghost god's power,then isn't that the same.Next thing I know, even the pastor was in the discussion.They didn't threw me out,but they invited be to come back and continue the matter.I visited the Seventh Day Adventist and the Baptist,but I can't share everything I did.In the end,no church would agree with certain things I believe.After I read in the scriptures "Anything that is divided is not of me.A divided kingdom will not stand" I left the church and seek Jesus myself. Here I am now writing about the past.
