Now that I have your attention I would like you to read my blog.
Its been about five months since I was last on this site. And it looks like it hasn't changed much since I left, except for maybe the shitload of new members now, and the likes and dislikes categories were taken off the profile info(:(). Anyway (funny story), I almost forgot about this site, but I came across it by accident the other day and I was wondering maybe I could get back on if I created a new profile, and since my IP was different the admin wouldn't recognize me. True story. BTW I wasn't booted from the site, so don't go nark on me about something I didn't do.
Anyway, how is everyone doing? Long time no see.
Speaking of change, I've done a bit of changing myself in the past 5-6 months. For 1 I'm no longer in High school. However, with orientation in 2 months I probably won't be on here much for the next 4-5 years. Also I don't loathe Christianity or any other organized religion any more, simply out of apathy and a very liberal attitude towards others' beliefs (e.g. I simply don't give a single fuck, and live and let live). Matter of fact I agree with some of the christian dogmas/doctrines just not the core doctrines (e.g. bodily resurrection, original sin, Vicarious atonement, virgin birth, trinity,final judgement and Davidian lineage). Another thing I would like to point out is that I'm not a staunch naturalist anymore. Now that doesn't mean I believe in spirits, It just means I would consider a supernatural explanation a plausible explanation for some observation. So I'm not really a believer in the supernatural, but more like an agnostic towards the supernatural if that makes since.
To elaborate on the latter, what led me back to Jesus (not in the Christian sense as a lord and redeemer, but in the sense as a moral teacher and philosopher) was this very liberal retired Episcopalian bishop named John Shelby Sponge. I don't know if anyone has ever heard of him but he has a very figurative interpretation of the gospels, and he rejects most of the core Christian doctrines (the ones I list in the second paragraph). His sermons also sound kind of new agey because he puts a lot of emphasis on individual spiritual growth and being closer to God by staying true to our own desires. I don't think he even believes in the ten commandments, that's how hardcore liberal he is. I might post a few of his sermons on my page later. He also preaches about tolerance towards non-christian religions (which would include pagans).
