I have a real problem with religion.
Firstly, I have a problem with people who try to push their religion on you. We all have the option to make that choice and to have someone else force their opinions of me is not only overwhelming, it’s disrespectful. I hate that feeling of judgement when someone tries to convince you their religion is correct. I guided myself to my beliefs with the help of those around me but through GUIDANCE and seeking out answers to questions, not through information being thrown at me.
Secondly, I have a problem with people who preach the bible, but don’t follow it or know it thoroughly. For instance, the man who tattooed Leviticus 18:22 on his arm… only to be told Leviticus 19:28 follows up with saying that people shall not get tattoos. You should probably know that. I’m not saying that everyone who believes should have the bible memorized but I think you should at least know the gist of it. Otherwise, I feel like you’re blindly following a book.
Lastly (for this rant), I DO NOT understand how a bible can be re-written so many times if it was the word of God. Seeing as it was written by the hand of a man, and not by some sentient being, it is open to interpretation, revision, and is to be taken with a LARGE grain of salt. When it comes down to it, even if the bible WAS given to the people through someone who recited it back, it was written by the hand of man and has been re-written since then.
Overall, I just don’t understand complete devotion to a way of life dictated by people who run a business that is based on fear and manipulation.
