My Confession - hope I don't burn for this one.

Catholicism and Christianity have always - for lack of better term... fucked my mind up. I'm being honest. Something has never sit well with me ever since catechism. And not just because it interrupted my Saturday morning cartoon line-up, but because nobody ever had an answer for my questions. They basically said the word of God "The Bible" was right and never question it - follow it. Period. Or, burn in Hell forever.

My take is that it is the greatest book ever written. A manual for everyday living. Stupid fucks need it for correction (I do include myself in there BTW).

But there are countless groups of Christians telling each other and the world that everyone is wrong except for them. All taking their own "true meaning" from it and building a church and following.

That's fucking retarded! According to all those people were gonna burn in Hell. Then comes to mind what you said about Satan trying to test fuck our faith by planting doubt. It's said the greatest accomplishment Satan ever did was making man believe he did not exist. That's one of the things that messes me up and doubt.

But aside from all that... here is what I'd like to think, aside from what my Pastor thinks I believe.

Earth is a beginning point of sorts. Or, perhaps a type of school our souls attend. You don't pass. Guess what? you come back to repeat the grade. I take this from Wiccan belief. Reincarnation. It makes a shit load more sense than any answer a pastor or priest has given me, which neither believe in.

This one guy explained it best by saying that God doesn't want a bunch of junk going into his universe so hence the need for reincarnation. A way to perfect the soul through different life times. Each time the soul learns something new. Until full enlightenment then you move on. It's also said that this information on reincarnation was taken out of the Bible at some point. The reason: If people knew of this, then they could live however they wanted thinking they could come back and make up for it in the next life. This would defeat the whole purpose of perfecting the soul and moving forward as was meant.

But over all I know:

I will answer to God for my actions here on Earth.

Jesus is one awesome dude.

Do I need salvation through Jesus to get into heaven??? I struggle with that everyday

I liked that line in Dogma:
"I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier."
