in Satan more than a God. To those of you who have that FAITH, do you have honest peace of mind? How did you get to that point? I don't trust televangelists at all. I look at it that any preacher that lives better than their congregation is not to be trusted. Am I wrong to think this way? Then there are the scandals of preachers. That really sets me against them.

I want to believe that my father, who passed in May, is in a better place; however, whenever the Bible speaks of "Death" it says, "The SLEEP of death." Does that mean my father is just asleep but in a different way then we sleep?

Does anyone believe in another dimension . . . that we move up? I kind of believe in that. I also believe that what people consider God were beings from somewhere back in Biblical times and even during the beginning of man, man went for millions of years with no real intelligence, suddenly, man starts making tools to hunt with, language, writing, etc. Even the Bible states the Angels of God were with the women of Earth. Could this be that we are part of these Aliens and part of evolution?

I'm just throwing some questions out there. I really want to know how to find that kind of faith because I definitely have something missing in my life as well as my purpose. I've tried different churches and demoninations and living in the South, there are some waaaaayyy out there churches. I was baptised in the Methodist Church and have attended the Lutheran Church (whose ceremony is really beautiful but the same every Sunday). The people ruin all the churches. I went to one new church and I swore the preacher was trying to avoid me.

Anyone have some of the answers or feel the same way?
