Personal Faith

If faith is supposed to be personal (unique, private, individual), why do we expect other people to have the exact same beliefs as us?

True Religion

True religion facilitates our connection with God and our care for other people. Connecting with God is not the religion, it is only a tool to help us connect with God. When people use religion as a club to beat on me, even when they say it is for my good so I will repent, they do not get it. True religion values the other person and starts from their perspective in helping them heal and connect with God. True religion does not start with a predetermined notion of what is right for the other person. It starts where the other person is and walks along side them. Very often, organized religion is not true religion, it is only a perpetuation of an institution.
