For the past two and a half years I’ve been acting as an agnostic, having been raised in the christian church my entire life. Rare is the day when I don’t think about my current spiritual condition, and wondering what I should do about it. I’m not content with where I’m at. I feel like I really want to believe that Christianity is true, but I just can’t right now.
Most Christians who hear where I’m at tell me to “just read the Bible and pray!” While this advice isn’t horrible, my guess is that it’s spawned out of not being comfortable with the situation and is very much a programmed response in a sense. Honestly, it’s not helpful at all (or at least, I don’t find it helpful).
So then, what ARE helpful things that a Christian can say to someone like me?
