Day 3 - your thoughts on religion

I was born and raised as a Catholic in a Catholic country. I am neither thrilled nor sanguished by my religion though. For me, I don't want to be pulled down by the traditions of the church I grew up in, I respect all other religions, as well as their own gods or their own version of God. What matter to me most is not how you worship, but on who you are as a person.

I could say I am devoted to Him in my own way, I believe that everything in life has a reason and as much as I could, I try to have a strong faith despite all the shortcomings I'm getting. However, I don't believe that the Bible is perfect, I don't trust priests, I don't go to Mass every Sunday. Some people might say that I'm doing it wrong, I'm not traditional, someone even told me that I'm an athiest. I must be the first ever believer who is at the same time an atheist. Cool logic bro, very informative.

Why? Do I have to go to church every single Sunday to be called a good Christian? Do I need to say my confessions weekly? Do I have to shout out to everyone that I memorize the Bible and all the names of the saints to be a good person? Due to that kind of logic, I decided to be a little silent on how I do things with God. 

In conclusion, religion for me are just versions of beliefs, I accept all differences and every religion has its own awe-inspiring elements as well as bad sides. No religion is above another. I believe in God, but I don't like to treat my faith as a public display or a decoration. My faith is a personal relationship with Him, and noone could take that away from me.
