God? Yes Religion? No

For about 20 years I have been on a search for a faith tradition that I could believe in and support. I grew up in a family that believed in God but did not participate in any particular faith.

So my search began:

Methodist (actually interned at a church)
Baptist (ok really only went to Sunday School twice as a child)
Seventh Day Adventist
Various Non-Denominational churches (about 10 years here)
Buddhism
Ba'hai
Wicca

I know that is a short list really out of all the religions of the world - those are the ones I studied the most.

The think I discovered about myself - is that all of the above traditions or religions if you will - -- I just don't buy into everything they say or believe.

I don't believe in hell
I do believe in equality for all
I do believe in helping others

I have put alot of pressure on myself over the years to "figure it out" - just pick one already!

So I choose God.

I do not choose any faith tradition/religion

It seems an almost lonely path - but I am pretty much an introvert anyway - and attending church always made me most uncomfortable.

Can you have God without "community"?
