i had no religion growing up... my pop had me baptized into the LDS when I was 9, but that meant nothing to me...religion meant nothing to me.
church was just a place to dress up and be bored for a couple of hours ( thankfully we rarely attended)
I started searching in my late 20's...for "something".. I didn't really know what i was looking for, but i felt a "need" for something.
I had taken a few courses in college.. world religion, comparative theology, and communications ( professor was big into research on rhetorical theory and political theology)... and they kind of lit the path for me, as it were.
from there, I dabbled in different denominations for a bit.. and found organized religion to be more about fellowship than anything else.
the problem was, I wasn't looking for fellowship... I had fellowship out the ying-yang in other areas of my life and believed the religious aspect of my life was between me and God... it was personal thing, not a team sport.
anyways, yeah.. I made my way to Christianity...my own brand of it anyways... and it works for me.
