in thread Religion in the Monastery.
While I don't disagree with advertising faith in any fashion. I can make a statement that I think anyone on either side of the discussion can agree with. Radicals and/or Fanatics about anything are bad. While the term "all things in moderation" is in the bible ( and i'm sure other places).. I don't think its completely "un-christian" of me to say that its a good idea not to consume yourself with any one thing.. be it work,sports, or church.
The moment you stop listening to new ideas is the moment you stop growing. Plugging your ears to new ideas doesn't make you any smarter and it doesn't make your beliefs more valid. Also, I find that the best way to reassure what I believe, is to discuss it with others and hear their thoughts. Variety is the spice of life, and hopefully the afterlife too /me ducks the tomatoes.
