I am still working on what i believe. I was raised christian but always felt a pull tward wicca, but the one time when i was younger that i wanted to look into it i made the mistake of telling my mother who completely freaked out. I have never really been able to look into othre religions untill now, so i sortof eveloped my own theries:

I cane to the conclusion when i was 16 or 17 that 'God' was not quite like portraied in christianity. I vew 'God' to be more of an ultamate force (insted of almost human like how most christians seam to picture 'him') That this force is the ultamate source of nature, love, and harmony. (i know i probably sound liks a psycho). And i dont believe in a conventional 'hell', but think of it as more as a metifore. That while there may be a punishment after dath, that it is being seperated fromthe  nature, love, and harmony that we are given a chance to experience on earth. I have yet to draw conclusions to how long this p;unishment lasts (if it lasts forever, a pre-etermined amount of time, or if after serving there punishment a spirit is given the chance to return to earth and try again)

I'm sorry I'm of no help in telling you what you sound like (religiously), but I can tell you that you do NOT sound psycho! I am in the EXACT kind of situation you are in. If you ever want to talk about things, please feel free to message me! I would love to talk to someone who is going through something similar to me. If you have messengers:

vlads_lil_psycho@yahoo.com (yahoo, of course lol)

bad_2thebone@live.com (msn)

Death4Conformity (AIM)

And I also have myspace and the IM, so if you want to add me: www.myspace.com/maddie122107 and it's private so you'll need my e-mail, but it's my yahoo I put earlier. Good luck to you, and I agree with what the first person said. That was a really nice response, I'm glad I read that.

I'm a breastfeeding and formula feeding, co-sleeping, anti-CIO, cloth diapering, in your face, obnoxious, smoking, God-fearing, married, young, proud southern mommy. If you have a problem with that, too bad.

I bet everyone in this group can say this. You're not alone. Don't worry so much about labels. Focus on your thoughts and develop your own theories.
