How many of you go through religious confusion every once in a while?
About once or twice a year
What emotions do you go through?
Because my father is Seventh-Day Adventist, my mother raised Baptist, my ex step father Lutheran, and my stepfather Catholic, I've grown up around different sects of Christianity and started feeling jaded towards to religion, because a lot of Christians (now, not all, but a LOT that I came across) weren't accepting of other faiths and shunned the homosexual community. After reading up on the history of the Catholic church, I sort of looked at the Bible and said "Is this truth, or just a set of rules someone stuck here to control me?" And ever since, I've looked in to other things, knowing deep in my heart there's SOEMTHING out there - I've been to buddhist meditation groups, pagan ceremonies, I've read all different types of spiritual and religious literature, and I'm still not quite certain. But I always come back to Christianity. Go figure.
How do you deal?
I can't. I don't know. I try so hard to figure this out, and my mind never comes to any conclusion as to what I feel. I know there's something out there, I can feel it in my bones. I just don't know.
