I won't lie. I've been having a terrible time with organized religion. I was raised in a Lutheran church, taught the bible, etc. As an adult, I cannot believe that one of the world's many religions is "the one," but if it is... how do you truly determine what that is? The bible seems to me like it has entirely too many "stories," how am I supposed to prove them to be true? How does one religion have one God, while the next has many?
I am not looking for any sort of debate here. Tell me about your religion. Tell me what you believe to be true. Teach me.
ETA: What is the difference between different types (I don't know if they are called sects) of Christianity, i.e. Baptist, Lutheran, etc.
