Why I BelieveSo I have always been completely fascinated by Greek Mythology but I was raised a Christian. I never fully believed in Christianity I believed that there was something out there but I would secretly question everything that I was learning. About two years ago I started reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books. These books made me think alot about my religion and my beliefs. They made me contemplate what I was raised to believe and what I feel to be true. After about a year of thinking and deep thought I finally found my religion. I believe that the Greek Gods exist and meddle in human affairs. I believe in the Greek view of the after life. I also believe that the gods do have affairs with mortals and have kids who become the most powerful people in the human world. I do not believe in God, the all powerful all controlling God. I believe that there is a being that has power over all just that it split itself into the Greek Gods to more effectively rule over the earth and space. I still classify myself as a Christian but with different beliefs than that of most other Christians. One big factor into my abandoning Christianity is because of how the Bible perceives gays. I am gay and the people and beliefs of the Christian faith did not accept me for that.
