This link shows what some parents and teachers are teaching their children a religion based on fear to me is not a good one so I disbelieve in their lord and believe in my own.
I can also put down my own personal experience as a kid I went with my dad to a religious meeting or something like that. I could not believe what I was hearing at one point a priest told me as a female I would have to choose to either become a nun or a mother then a puppet show was put on. The story was about a boy who wanted to watch Harry Potter and wasn't allowed as told by his Guardian angel. But the biggest thing we were taught to be fearful of hell a child shouldn't really be taught of hell in that way I was so scared when I found out I went around crying because I thought I could go to hell if I were to die any minute and I was only six. We are also taught as a teenager that human sexuality is a bad thing I disagreed saying that it was a natural part of humans we experience lust and yet we were taught to ignore it. I made a list of things that I were told were sinful
Meditation that was not christian
Thinking of Sex
Talking of Sex
Watching stuff about Sex
Watching things about Magic
Greens (Political Party)
Questioning God and the Bible
That to me is quite a list and I even forgot a few you might say well weren't your parents Christians yes but not conservative I learnt the list from others being priests to really religious people. My mother believed in evolution and both my parents believed in equal rights for everyone. I'm angry that kids have no one else to go to not their parents or friends and even teachers cause I didn't.
I truly apologise for the "Christians" that are confused and make Christianity look like a very hateful belief. But I assure you, a true church does not attempt to brainwash their children, but awaken their children. My parents did not make me to go to church, I chose that myself. My dad was raised in a Catholic home, and shared his experiences to me. To him, he didn't belong. It was a world-view that believed rules and good deeds were the way to God. But what they don't understand is good deeds can't make up for our human nature. Our "good" deeds, matched up to God's perfection, is not really a comparison at all. Catholics are trying to walk towards heaven, looking back in fear of hell. So they try to cover up their mistakes by being the best they could be, which doesn't work.
I agree with you, human sexuality is natural, I experience lust everyday. But the difference is, I do not ignore it, I use it as a constant reminder that shouts to me "I CAN'T DO THIS LIFE ON MY OWN". If anything my addiction to pornography has taught me just that. Your list of stuff that you were taught not to do are apart of life, and people who commit these actions are not to be put on trial in church. "The church is not a museum of good people, it is a hospital for the broken" (I got this line from a Christian poet)
