I was brought up Catholic. I was baptized. I did my communion and confirmation. We did not practice 100%, but my fam always prayed to Jesus, "son of God", and to the saints. Once I got older and started to learn about other religions, it came to me that there is no such thing as religion. People choose to divide themselves however they see fit most of the time and still become blinded by this world, failing to realize there is something better for them than this. I feel there is a way of life and there is God and only Him and he is not to be associated with anything or anyone else. He has no children and we are here to serve him (that is our main purpose). I believe in being a good person and staying modest. It is quite simple (what I believe I mean). What enables me to believe this is that there are just way too many signs to believe otherwise. I read as much as I can and reflect. I respect that other people believe differently and I know people and have associates/friends that believe in many different things.
I was raised evangelical, as a teenager grew dissatisfied with everything and choose to believe in nothing, not even spirituality. I wouldn´t call myself atheist or gnostic because those have a set of principles that I also do not believe in 100%, and those are also an offshoot of quasi religious organizations. With a due respect, for me all religions, higher-power beliefs, spiritual awakenings, ect. are a scam and only seek to control people, but I also understand that it makes a lot of people happy and gives them meaning to their lives. Still, I prefer nothing and that´s how it is to this day, it makes things easier for me, I had an option to choose and eventually I would want my kid to have that freedom.
