    Did you choose your religion?

    Did your parents choose your religion? now that you're independent and have decisions in life, what religion would you choose and why?

    I did.  I grew with a religion that didn't ring true.  As I got older, I wanted something that was very close to the Bible.  I am a Missouri-Synod Lutheran.

    My parents were not religious people.  We didn't attend church, read bible stories or say prayers before meals.
      They were honest hardworking, generous people  who taught these values to us kids.
       I had always believed in a "Supreme being" but it wasn't a developed concept for me.
      Then I met a young lady on a blind date.  She mentioned that she was a Mormon.  Later I started receiving the lessons from the missionaries.  Since I had no preconcived notions about God I found the Joseph Smith story quite interesting.
      As I studied the Book of Mormon & the Bible it all came together for me.
       I was baptized may 8th, 1977 and remain a member to this day.

    I grew up in a Christian home, and chose later in life to just believe in God and not belong to any religion.

    Yes and no.

    We chose each other.  I was looking for something specific and I would not settle until I was happy with what I found.  I tested the theory with practice.  Then I left and found other things and determined that I like one in particular the best.  I have respect for the others because I see the value and goodness in all religions when properly practiced. 

    I compared them all and then I decided.  This is the same way I would buy a car, see what is in the market and then make the best intelligent decision possible based on facts and experience.

    Best wishes, I hope you find what you seek.
