I am curious as to the dynamic behind your beliefs. Therefore I would like to start a poll for Christians to answer. Some of you might feel that both answers are equally part of why you believe---in this case try to pick the one that seems to be stronger. Please respond to the poll as to why your religion is true to you: Is it because of experiencing things that are non-rational and perhaps even supernatural such as things we would call miracles or synchronicities? Or, Is is because you understand it in a rational way, have studied the Bible, and its teachings and you therefore know it to be true (or at least take the existential leap that it is true)?
