There are several Christian doctrines which I started believing one way because that's how I was taught, then as I got older and investigated and researched for myself, I have sometimes changed my mind about them. I'm sure many of you have had the same experience. Over the years, family and friends to whom I've witnessed, have noticed that some of my beliefs have changed, and a couple of them have asked me, "Well how does anyone know what to believe? So many different beliefs and practices...even you have admitted believing differently. Why should I believe anything so wishy-washy?" (paraphrased, of course) How have some of you handled this question? I really cannot blame my friends and family for questioning this. I don't want to discuss which doctrinal beliefs have changed for me. I would really like to hear about your experiences though.
