A Look AroundThe last time I took an inventory on my spiritual beliefs I had a lot I was trying to get sorted out and answered and each path I walked down just ended with me being far more confused than when I started. Over the last couple of years and definitely after the last few posts I made here I have taken many steps back in trying to figure out the universe. I still don't believe in a "god" or a "devil" in the traditional sense but I definltely believe there is something out there larger than us.
I spoke with my girlfriend about religioun at length last night, She's Penticostal, and she was just gauging my beliefs and I was able to cement a couple of beliefs of mine last night. I do not believe in religion. The usual argument to this is that you would not believe in them because you think they're inherantly wrong or other things like that, my problem isn't the belief itself, it's the fact that most religions are unwilling to adapt their structure or challenge any of the ideas. I am not the same person I was when I was 4 or 18 or even 23 for that matter so why would my religion stay the same when I did not. Questions and adaptation are the natural progression of learning and growing and I just don't believe you can truly grow in a structure so resistant to change. Those are just some of my thougts, what are yours?
