Shifting towards Philosophy

Organized religion preaches to the masses indifferently, but philosophy requires the individual to confront it personally.

Organized religion expects unshakable and constant belief, while philosophy forces you to constantly re-examine and reconsider your stand.

Organized religion fences you within a safe but artificial and shallow microenviroment, while philosophy throws you out into the wild, but you grow from the experiences you got.

In light of such perceptions, I identify myself more as a seeker of philosophical truth rather than religious truth. God does not manifest itself in dogmas, but can only be understood if we act according to his revelations.

But neither am I abandoning my faith, for all the energy I focus towards my philosophical search, I channel towards Christ.

So am I still a Christian then?
