..."born" into your religion, or did you actively explore numerous religious options in the pursuit of enlightenment before you decided to follow a specific path?
If you were born into your religion (indoctrinated) and have never researched any other religions, how can you make an informed decision about your beliefs?

I was raised Pentecostal, Apostolic (meaning we follow the Apostles Doctrine(teachings) which Jesus Christ being the Chief Apostle) Training in this path teaches you how to experience God for yourself. As a child the principles taught are very basic that gives the child an appetite to want to learn more, not about the faith but about the God of the faith. Some children have been open enough to experience this and have had no desire to follow anything else for the simple reason their soul has been satisfied. Then you have others that choose to walk away try other paths only to find out that nothing compares to the power God gives through the Holy Ghost. Then you have some that will not stay the path because they do not want to pay to walk that path. (self sacrifice)
