So what will it be? Will you ask the tough questions? Will you have the courage to seek the answers, no matter where they lead? It may mean having to leave your comfort zone and confronting God and yourself in a whole new way. It may mean giving up the feeling of security you get when you believe that your church or religion has it all figured out. … What happens when you don’t have the authority of a holy book to back your claims? Can you put faith in God to lead you to the truth? Can you let go of your ego, your pride, your selfish desires—and see the spiritual world of God and your own soul?
