I'm a 19 year old male, who was once a typical American protestant-Baptist type... and of course, I fell away from the "Church". No one seemed to be practicing Christianity truly, or taking it seriously, or trying to be more Christ like... it was more just for fun, and so on... I'm sure some of you know what I mean.
I then moved to research other religions: Most prominent of them is Tibetan Buddhism, which had the sincerity, rituals, incense and music I was looking for. I practiced this on and off for a few years, and also short periods of time searching - Another year was spent to Sikhism, which was probably (in review) one of the worst experiences I have had, but at the time, it gave me a sense of Community that I felt I lacked in Tibetan Buddhism.
I would also like to admit a stint with Theistic Satanism here to you all.
I guess I am here to learn about the Church, more about who I am, as an ethnic Russian, and of course to somehow see that there is nothing wrong with Christ's message of Love, and above all that it's not about converting as many people as you can, about showing off your faith... That it's about practice, striving and personal belief... and Imitating Christ.
Thank you all.
PS. I am 19, and spent from 13 downwards at a protestant Christian school, and then converted to Tibetan Buddhism. It's been about 6 years since I've had anything to do with Christanity, and as such, some of you may even have to explain to me the concept of just "One God" all over again... But I'm here to learn.
