I believe in God/Jesus but what I don't believe in is religion. Jesus spoke of love and acceptance for all and I find that all religions teach to exclude people if they don't meet their "expectations". I have heard the sermons love "thy neighbor and enemies" and at the same time they make you feel like an outcast if you're gay,divorced,children out of wedlock etc.I once was a church goer alway helping out and volunteering. One day I recieved a letter telling me I wasn't giving enough money to the church. I gave what I could always money wise or helping out a function even though I had 3 children to support I gave generiously from my heart.
I really felt bad about myself after that and have never returned to church. I still pray and thank god for all of my blessings and just try to do good and spread love cause this is more true to his teachings it's man that has taken his teachings and altered them to fit his needs
