This week’s blogpost topic is to Share your opinion on religion.
I’ve seen a lot of ugliness come out involving religion during this election season. People spend too much time arguing over who is right and what exactly everybody should believe with the goal of being right and convincing everybody of that. People reach conclusions differently and I have seen nobody truly convinced someone else is right after a religious argument.
The other trend that bothers me is when people get too wrapped up in themselves and trying to be holier or a better Christian or whatever religion and you lose sight of what is important.
Amongst all of this, there is a place for religion but I think people are the ones who mess it up and make it something that isn’t good.
I know personally I’m at a place where I’m not sure exactly where and how to say I am ___ when it comes to all the different Christian denominations. I am a Christian, that I know but when it comes to Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist and all the different things out there. I really have no idea at this point. I see friends on Facebook putting Feminist as their religious status, others Christ Follower and I don’t think either of those are right. Right now mine is blank because I don’t think one word can encompass it all for whoever feels like browsing your “About Me”. If I put just Christian that could be super liberal “progressive” Christian, or it could mean super conservative legalistic Christian. I’ll figure out something in the future, or maybe I’ll just leave it blank.
