Oh I think I might rant, a tad...
I was raised a Pentacostal Christian "Holy Roller." At one point in my life God was everything. As I got older I began to think of most of the Christians I met to b hypocritical. It was weird growing up the way I did. My mom still tells me that she saw demons being cast out at one of our prayer meetings. This scares me.
I believe in God. Not anyone's version of him. I love God and believe he made us in his image. I am not perfect, but I do the best I can. I make mistakes and I think that if God is truly all loving and all knowing, he will love me for who I am. I don't go to church every Sunday. I don't pray as often as I should, but I know he is there for me. Sometimes I get down on myself and think God hates me, but I have no idea.
Religion is a set of rules and codes made to be followed. Pay this much, come worship this day, say this, do that, don't do that. God isn't a control freak. God wants us to love him and use our brains.
