    I too came into AA as a non active Christian.

    I happily returned to my childhood Sunday School God
    of love and forgivness…..:yup:

    Ergo…the AA Steps did not give me a spiritual awakening
    rather a renewal…resulting in a deeper peace and faith.

    Hi again…good to see you here in our Step Study Forum
    :hug:

    Did some soul searching and my concept of god is him in a chair keep score on all the things I have done bad in order to confront me with them when I die. That is the God I pictured growing up. Im trying to wrap my head around a Lord that love and understands and wants me to not hurt myself anymore. I guess I cant skip step 2 afterall! :headbange

    Yep, the arbitrary accountant in the sky isn’t of much use to us drunks, neither is the fire and brimstone “gonna get you in the end” God. I have no use for a God that is just laying in wait for me to screw up, I need a God that I can turn to when I haven’t been doing the right thing. I don’t need God when I’m helping some old lady across the street, I need God the most when I’ve just snapped at my wife for no reason. I need a God that has taken a personal interest in my well being.
