First off: no preacher, no pastor, no deacon, absolutely no one can tell me more about God than I could find out for myself through my personal relationship with God. I have a deep personal relationship with God; always have. As a matter of fact, I was introduced to God, even before I was introduced to religion. When I look at nature, I see God.
As I grow older and wiser, I have begin to question certain things and practices about religion. 1. I hate the fact that throughout the history of mankind, more people have died and killed in the name of religion than anything else.
Also, religion often use fear to controll your way of thinking. Its like, if you do this, your going to hell. They basically tell you that you will be punished for having the flaws that you were engineered with.
