Nope - not at all.
I think it is a load of poop - poop - poopity - poop
..and the older I get, and more life experience I have - the more I feel that way.

I don't practice 'religion' religion is a rule. I goto church when I can make it but I worship God in all I do. Last week church was at the beach!! My pastor is super relaxed. It was just a get together BBQ breakfast at the time church was and all the kids played on the beach while the dads watched and the mums sat in the sun tents and sun baked. It's was great, we have a small but extremely family orientated church. I've grown up in the church and I wouldn't change a thing. I had a terrible up bringing and God was my only hope. I'm a born again Pentecostal Christian and extremely proud of my faith

I was baptised catholic and was a practicing catholic until I turned thirty. I was married in the church, my children were baptised, I didn't agree with many of the churches principles in regards to women, homosexuality etc... but I still had my faith.
When I turned 30, there was a straw that broke the camels back - I walked into a church and where previously I felt gods presence, I felt nothing. I always looked to god as my strength and my protector, but I realised that *I* was my strength and I just let it all go. There was a grieving process, but I feel more myself now, no need to hide behind a mask. No need to pretend to have feelings in order to keep the peace.
Funnily enough, I've recently been through one of the hardest times in my life and whilst I accepted prayers from others, I never looked to god to help me. I helped my darn self.
Gosh, that was an essay!

Yes I'm a Christian and go to church on Sunday mornings and on Friday night we have a youth service..I'm one of the leaders there (unfortunately I'm not youth age anymore!). I love that I go to a church where they love and are accepting of everyone.
