I am so glad that my path/beliefs (Paganism) is simple. I am sorry, but after reading these posts for the past few days I have come to realize that my choice is so much nicer and more peaceful... NOT disrespecting any-one religion by-far, but it seems that there is a lot of "Rules" and "No Freedoms" when it comes to other religions and it just reinforces my reasons for leaving Christianity behind...
There are a lot of scare tatics with some religions exspecially with Christianity, only a few will make it here, the dead will rise, etc...ect... (sounds like a horror movie to me)... some trying to convert others knowing that the others don't want to and all bc a Book told them too, sorry ...oh and a lot of hateful exchanges...
I am glad that you have a strong belief system, but I am SO at PEACE not being Ruled by a Book...
I am NOT Bashing others, this is an HONEST OPION of what I see here.

That's why I love Hinduism. Although it's very complicated because they back up a lot of their beliefs w/ science & physics. And all that can get confusing. But hey, at least we are not blindly having faith, we can put up the best arguments to our truths because we have figured out the math. Also, there are NO scare tactics in Hinduism. You don't even have to be "christened" or anything like that. Hinduism is more a philosophy than a religion. Actually, Christianity is one of the FEW religions that use scare tactics, & a lot of Christian denominations do NOT use scare tactics. Maybe you should study Christianity & other religions more, not that you have to believe in them. But it will really expand your knowledge about religion. Because i believe you have it wrong, & it seems like your judging most religions out there by the way you came across in your post.

I majored in religion, it's my life & find that MOST religions are don't use scare tactics. In fact, i have LOVED every Christian church i have been to. I can understand their love for the divine, I think it is ABSOLUTLEY beautiful! Only one time have i been to a church where they told me i was going to hell, & well I never went back. Reading & experiencing religions are different. Maybe try going to a non-denominational church to understand them better. Their devotion is a beautiful thing, I have even got teary eyed going to Christian church services. And yes I am Hindu, but i love experiencing it all.
