“So, I’ve been thinking (that’s always a good start to a post, right?)… Being at a Christian school has led me to a lot of conversations pertaining to faith and religion and, the truth is, I don’t know exactly what I believe when it comes to religion. Like, I agree with a few key aspects of different religions, but when you put them all together it doesn’t equal a religion that people talk about. I’ve gotten quite tired of trying to explain exactly what I do and don’t believe, and, honestly, I don’t see why that question always has to be faith/religion based. So, for those people who think that question is essential to who I am as a person, and want a list of things I believe in, here ya go! There will probably be a Part Two and maybe a Part Three to this someday, but this is the first little bit.” Another collection of things I believe. Maybe this will be a thing I post every so often as I usually write things like this down when I think of them. So, here’s Part Two!
