Religion as adults
Are you currently practicing the same religion you grew up with?
I grew up loosely Catholic (my family was, my mom didn't attend) and thought it was a beautiful religion. as I have grown though I found it's not the right fit for me. I am agnostic now.
How about you?
May I ask what made you decide to become agnostic?
First, let me say that I believe there is some sort of creator. I don't claim to know details, I don't even think I want them. That's the agnostic part of me, I just don't know details.
I don't trust religion. I think too many deaths and wars have been caused by it. I think too much heart ache is caused by it in regards to people who stand outside of the "norm". I don't trust the Bible to be the word of any divine person or diety, I believe it was written by man, for man and that's where it begins and ends.
That said, as much as I dislike religion I also find it captivating and beautiful. As much as it has a dark side it has a beautiful side as well. Such is life, right?
I will never tell another person their thoughts or feelings on the matter are right or wrong because I simply don't know. I'm okay with that, in fact I feel very much at peace with that. For me though religion is not my path to follow.
I appreciate you responding Melissa. Please accept my apology for my late response. You have an awesome day.
