I can't think of the terms right off the top of my head (maybe bord has them?). But yes, I prefer studies and sermons based on books of the bible, not on subjects that scripture is used to defend.

I agree. I always wonder why someone would need to "research" another religion. I have always been interested in other faiths but not enough to leave my own. I don't see anything wrong with the "comfortable shoe". I think you can grow in your faith with that "comfortable shoe". I was never looking for someone to make me more faithful or spiritual. That is something I do on my own and I don't rely on a church to do that for me.

I guess when you are natually spiritual, you can do that ;)

I want to read the bible, and take what it is that God would have for me, in that passage, given my current circumstances. I don't like to be lead by an author, that has translated a passage, to a conclusion that s/he feels is important.

...and for my kids, I don't want that answer to be because my parents said so when they get older.
