Day 04 – Your Views on Religion
Well, quite simply, I’d say that I’m not religious, but I’m spiritual.
I don’t believe in going to church every week. Even though I went to the Moravian School for elementary and the Seventh Day Adventist School for middle through high school. I was religious at first, but I realized that it was all about how you lived your life. I decided to just never be able to apologize for lying, stealing, and killing every single day.
In college I prayed and prayed for my mother’s happiness, as I’d been doing since the sixth grade. I never saw results. I even went to a pastor with questions and all he had to say was “have faith” in response to every question. After that, I only went to church if my significant other asked.
It was hard breaking the news to my devout Catholic mother, but I was honest. In my mind, good people shouldn’t have to go through so much pain.
Anywho, I believe in a higher power. I just don’t know who or what it is.
Secretly, I will not follow the religion that enslaved my ancestors. I just can’t.
I might ruffle feathers, but I’m always honest and to the point.
