It's almost like giving up this search EQUALS believing in God when it really shouldn't and doesn't have to. This is the part where faith comes in and that's a whole other story. If you know this blog, you know my feelings on that.
Giving up should not end up in God. Giving up should be exactly that,...ending back up in the neutral zone...fence sitting. Sure, you believe it should end up in God if you're a Christian but you're no longer on the fence at that point.
