Are you secular in nature or a religious person?
Please explain how much do you like to follow the religious directives and why not if you don't follow them.
I would consider myself more spiritual than Religious. My beliefs are my world, that God sent his son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for all's sin. To accept him as our savior is to know him. Accept him into our hearts and confess our sins with our mouth and live a life that is pleasing to him will take us to Heaven for eternity.
I Don't like to follow people who have the potential to deceive me. If Jesus appeared to me however, unless I had a heart attack from the shock.. I would certainly follow him. I am lying "certainly" didn't have to be there. I would try though. But I don't know If I have the Guts to give my life for anyone. Perhaps I should be ashamed of myself, because he did. He gave his life for mankind.
I am spiritual and in search of Truth. I have studied many religions and found many truths that continue to help me understand. I have also studied science and even have a degree, summa cum laude, from a university, so I am comfortable with the secular and have learned a great deal there, too.
I was born into a mixed family. My mother was the daughter of a Southern Baptist minister. My father was a student of the Bible and Eastern mysticism. The entire family then studied Scientology during the 60s and 70s. I then turned to Buddhism in the 80s and 90s. Then I studied Judaism and Jewish mysticism (Kabbalah) and then returned to Christianity, but non-denominational.
Too much of religion is human dogma and ego. And ego is the very thing religion is meant to vanquish.
I have found reincarnation and karma in the Bible, but most denominations decry the idea as sacrilege. I have even remembered many of my own lifetimes. I have walked the corridors of space without my human body and seen the world without the need of human eyes, so I know I am a spiritual child of God who happens to have a human body.
