A Dose of Religion

I realize that religion can be such a controversial topic and I found a quote by Jonathan Swift that goes “We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.” SO true isn't it?

Growing up I have studied many different religions. My fathers side of the family was Catholic, my mothers side Christian. Then there was a woman who was a Jehovah's Witness who came to my home weekly and read me stories. And as a teen I took teachings from Mormon missionaries. Now that I am an adult I have Christian beliefs. I do wish I lived my life more according to the bible but that isn't always the case. I do try but God isn't finished with me yet.

What are your beliefs?
