I have spoken in the past about how I am not a “religious” person, but a “spiritual” one. I do not believe in the Bible or organized religion. I do believe in a God – a higher energy/power…I call it God anyway. I believe in being a good person. Being kind, compassionate, helpful, considerate, tolerant, patient, loving…of course, being imperfect I cannot be all of these things all of the time. But I do strive for that. I suppose I call it the religion of “Goodness” for lack of a better term.
For some reason, my personal belief system angers people. I don’t really understand because even though I do not believe in what they choose, it certainly doesn’t make me angry. It doesn’t make me want to say hurtful things or bash a person. So, why do so many “Christians” get so pissed off and act so high and mighty with their sharp tongues because I chose my belief as they have chosen theirs. I truly do not understand it. I would really like to know. Do YOU know??
