  I like the simple truths of Christianity and I often run into those who seek the mystical or the philosophical in search of something higher. The following quote captures eloquently, the way I feel.

 "We don't want to overfly with wings of vain philosophy, beyond the blessed level of Christian simplicity and repose; of quitting the green homesteads of a human and a heartfelt faith for the trackless air of speculation clear and cold, and amid the naked rocks and un-melting snows of the lonely intellect, losing sight of the slopes of Nazareth and the villages of Galilee. The meek purity, the quiet trust, the reverent yet un-fearing spirit of Christ, and with the secret faith, which these imply, are the simple truths of Christianity."
