Denomination what?

I think Religion is overrated.

I mean, if you believe in God, or whatever you call the higher power you believe in, that's great, but some people get so wrapped up in denominations it's not even funny.

Baptists, Presbyterians, Mormons, Methodists, Lutherans, Church of Christ, Pentecostals, the list goes on and on.

Who cares about denominations?  They all believe in God and heaven, most members of the church get baptized, they all pray, what's the big deal? They're all a form of Christianity.

I've been to all the churches I've listed above, and even some other religions, and the one thing they seem to have in common is that they think they're right.

Don't deny it if you go to church.  Most members think that their 'section' of religion is the right one.

It's crazy and hypocritical.  Baptists are especially bad about this.  How do I know?  Well let's see, I've been to 5 southern baptist churches, 2 independent fundamental, and 1 baptist church up north, and a 'normal' baptist church too.  Each one claimed to be the 'right church that will lead you in the path of the righteous'.  

Crazy shiz if you ask me.  And everyone wonders why I want to be a Buddhist.


  1. Eh, religion kinda is overrated. Be a goob person, thats all that matters.
    But yeah, once in a bit my friends (and familly) will drag me to whatever church they go too...they really are all the same.

  2. Ha, yeah. There's really very few differences and people get SO caught up in it.

  3. This is why I like being a Jew... I get so confused with all the Christianity. Some people I know think they are fantastic because of their religion, and that I'm wrong. But when I ask them about Christ, since I'm Jewish I really don't get it, they are like,"He died for us!" and I'm like,"How?" and then they says,"He just did!!!" To think they would know their religion that is so amazing!!

    BTW I realized I commented on one of your blogs a couple days ago as Corinne. Thats my REAL name but no one calls me that. Sorry! Thats my other account for template testing. I forgot to switch!

    But now you can feel special cause you know my real name! *Throws confetti"

  4. And that right there is just one of the many reasons I am not religious.

  5. i agree and i'm Baptist! denominations are people-created. there are too many for one to be an absolute "right" one.
