    Greetings my brothers and sisters....

    Hi all...

    My name is Eric, and I am not a jew! I saw the link to this forum off of another religious issues forum while I was having a very civil conversation with your moderator here, Arik.

    I knew God before I knew there was a God. From a very early age, I can remember asking him for guidance, seeking answers to questions, and feeling His presence in nature. I came to religion through Chrsitianity, but over the past few years have found many christians to be to narrow minded, controlling, and judgmental for my tastes. So now, I simply seek. As I have sought, I have found Him to be present in other religious writings and thought, many of which christian leaders will tell you will lead you to hell. Oh well.

    Anyway, I look forward to some stimulating conversations.

    Greetings Eric! It's good to have you here. Yes, many of us have had somewhat negative dealings with xtianity. One thing you'll find is Judaism doesn't teach you have to be a Jew to "go to Heaven" G-d has certain things he requires of Jews and certain things that are required of non-Jews. There is more than one path to G-d.
    Feel free to post away or respond to any posts here even if they are old posts.
    cheers

    Greetings Eric!

    I came from an RCC upbringing, and realized late in life that there had to be something more.

    Feel free to engage everyone in the forum - we look forward to many conversations.
