I am very much a Christian (in my own, unique, way) . . . this doesn't mean I don't "believe in" things most Christians would lose their minds over
nor does it preclude a love and deep appreciation for Judaism + Islam and many other religious faiths . . . I am way more a religious seeker than a New Age kind of dude; never doubt this
my #faith never wavers
even though I am constantly annoyed with what I see "in the world"
I believe in Religion, even though we all know the "institution" has been hijacked for hundreds and hundreds of years to support political and economic power
You can be a Christian, imo, and believe in reincarnation and discount all the nonsense about "women submitting" (hash tag #bullshit) and be "a psychic", too . . . you say prophet, I say clairvoyant
and feel a deep love and kinship with people who practice "competing" religions, as well -- if they come with a good heart (and of course there are people of pure hearts in all religions, somewhere or another)
there is truth in Religion
it is just buried
because its "truth" doesn't support oppression and so oppressors "suppress it"
I am much closer in my religious faith to Christianity than to more "New Agey" types of practices
this often surprises people when I say this
but it is very much, for me, my personal truth
