I always tell myself "I could be wrong".

It is wrong to leave a church if it is the truth.  I always tell myself "I could be wrong".

Your belief should follow the truth always.

how do i Know that it is the truth though. No one has proved it to me. They only talk about it, but the reasons they use, are not convincing. I cannot base my life on something I doubt. Just as I cannot form a relationship, with someone I do not feel comfortable with.

Does that mean, I have to put up with all the gossip that is going on in the church, from the depth to the exit? I don't think so.

Yes. They also put up with you, don't they?

What would be enough proof for you?
