  • I don't really see it as either.... I was introduced to God at an early age, and my faith and I have kind of evolved and matured together...

  • My parents taught us about all the religions & let us choose what we felt was our right path. My sister is practicing Christianity, while i chose the Hindu path (like my mother). My brother is Buddhist along with my father. I am really taking a liking to tibetan Buddhism though. I will forever use my Hindu medetation techniques, but i just love the teachings that come from Tibetan Buddhism. It's just BEAUTIFUL!

  • Alittle bit of both I guess. I have always been christian. We went to a penicoastal church growing up(just us kids). They scare the crap out of me. As soon as I was old enough I stopped going. For the longest time I didn't go to church. I always had God. I always believed Jesus died for our sins. I have found a church were I belong after 17 yrs. God is great! Amen!

  • My parents raised me in the church. I was baptised when I was 11, but even then it wasn't my religion. It was my parents' religion. After I was grown, I left the church for a while, searching on my own. Eventually, I realized (or God dropped a brick on my head) that everything I was looking for I had already learned. So I returned to my roots. I found a congregation nearby, researched it a bit, placed membership, and have claimed it as my religion now.

    So, did I find it, or did I grow up in it? I don't know. I do know that you have to own your faith. Until you do, it's not yours.
