I just read a story in Amercan Literature by Anne Bradstreet called, "To My Dear Children" where she speaks of her beliefs in God, and how she's broken away from the church because she doesn't believe that you should be told how to worship God. I believe, sometimes, that things like churches and congregation only want you to believe in God as long as you worship him in the same way they do. I think that your personal relationship with God is no different than the relationship you have with your spouse. You both understand eachother, you know how the other feels about other, so why does a person need to attend church to prove that? If God knows, why should others try to change your relationship with him? I think it should be a spiritual experience rather than a mental one that assures you're doing it right.
I hope this makes sense and doesn't sound preachy.
