Before I start of with my theories, I just wanted to inform whoever is reading this thread that they should be open minded. Some of the details here might offend you. However, if you are willing to accept other people's ideas, discussing the realms of the Christian religions, please read on.
I am a Catholic. I was born one actually, I never got to choose what religion I was, and since I was a kid, the "catholic ways" were being fed to me. But, now, I think to myself, is it really accurate? Should I believe in ancestral ways in a modernizing world? What is my religion truly about.
So that is why I am doubtful.
Pornography. Tattoos. Piercings. According many catholics, it is a sin. 'We must not change what God had created', They say. But, aren't these things part of our everyday lives? and if so, do we shun those who do commit these so called 'sins'.
Is homosexuality a sin? Many people say that they CHOOSE to be homosexuals? But, think about it, would they choose a life of torment from our 21st century society? I THink not, they were born this way. And if they were born that way, with a different way of thinking, is it not god who created him?
AH AND DONT GET ME STARTED ON EVOLUTION! There is this huge debate God vs. theory of evolution. Anyone stopped to think, maybe God made evolution take place. Maybe he say little flaws of creatures and decided to make them adapt. Tweeking them.
So these are just a few issues, that i thought were quite debatable. I know this might sound silly to people, but I dont remember the last time God punished someone for having pre-marital sex, or watching internet porn. I think the last 5 commandments are the most vital.
P.S. In some churches, they make people say certain 'prayers', basically making people say what the church want them to say. That is just crap. You should be able to say what you want to God, when you go to church. Church is supposed to bring to closer to God. The idea of this type of prayer is a facade on the true Christian.
