from the spells-like-teen-spirit dept.
I am a 16 year old teenager who has to deal with witchcraft and religion everyday. Being that I am wiccan, I often get critized or interrogated -- mostly by Christians. I have many problems with religion. I am the way I am, not because of TV sitcoms such as "Charmed" or "Sabrina" or any other show wrongly portraying the life of a witch. I wish that all people, young and old, would get educated on the topic of witchcraft since there are so many types.
Also, being a witch, I strive to know more and enhance my abilities. I think of them as gifts. I would like to find other teens like me who are on the verge of fully understanding and utilzing their own gifts.
I know many people that are devout Christians who find what I do evil. Let me assure you that I am not evil. What I do is open my mind to what is around me. I let my soul take in everything.
I am, like most teens I know who practice witchcraft, confused. I know I have a "sixth sense," but I cannot develop as I would like to. I would love to find someone who can enlighten me on how to develop my skills.
But I do have a lot of problems with "God." I find him, to be quite frank, repulsive and disgusting. The ways of Christians and other followers of God simply piss me off. I have delt with so many arguements on religion. I feel that the whole religion system in itself is messed up beyond redemption. People place their whole life into a book that they don't even know of as factual or not. We have been raised to believe that the Bible is true and that we should believe everything in it or we shall be punished and suffer total damnation for all eternity in Hell. Man wrote the Bible, so in it there is cause for error, because man by definition has errors. If man was infallible then he would not be man, he would be a god. So I have problems with people who put so much of themselves into the Bible when in fact it could be wrong.
I feel that people who think homosexuality is wrong are wrong themselves. There is nothing wrong with having feelings for people of the same sex. And for all you Christians, God made them that way, so don't you dare preach to them and try to change who they are, because you will be changing God's will.And when people tell me that God has a plan for everyone I get very mad, because I look around and see all these people suffering and I think, is this God's almighty plan to have this person suffer like this... why? Why does God put people on this earth just to suffer? That thought pains me. I have more opinions on religion but I am sure you are tired of my opinions, and I did not mean to offend anyone, but this was my opinion. But if anyone would like to talk to me on religion, please e-mail me.
