    Don't you hate it when someone tries to turn something spiritual into a fad? Wait, isn't that what the Romans eventually did to Christianity?

    Ty gurly Gurl,and no I dont get annoyed with Madonna its her life and if it makes her happy thats fine with me.Kabbalah to me is more of a key to understanding things rather than a relgion per sae,but to each there own.

    Ha ha ninja in a strange way isnt that how all major religions became major? If you read about any of the Major religions there was always someone or a group that came to power that promoted that particular beliefe.

    If you want to talk about a religion or cult, think of Scientology. I've heard about this group and I saw a quote from the founder that makes me feel like it didn't start off on good intentions.Paraphasing, L Ron Hubber(t), if you wanna make money start a religion.

    Smile I pick ? to incorpate with my path...

    Catholicism...but I leave the church's dogma behind. And I don't interpret the bible as the literal words of God. Man created the bible just like he created religion. As a result, there are lots of mistakes in the bible that get overlooked all the time by radical Christians. Instead I view the bible as either mythology/folklore, or as a series of metaphors at the very least.

    The way mainstream religion is today would proably offend Jesus if he saw that his message of love is not getting through. No wonder why so many of us are leaving the church... or have left. I was raised Catholic growing up, so its proably no suprise that I would incorpate it into my path. But I do this with a liberal mindset. Thats just how I am. Very diverse and openminded, what can I say?

    Blessings,
    SunFlowerJade

    I've heard that before, but the weird thing is, with very little resources and references of Jesus, and when I say very little I mean "outside of the Christian Church and KJV of the bible) it seems like we don't really know who Jesus was, I mean he may have been the uptight bastard(excuse my language) that radicals make you think he was, or he could've been more laid back like the pagans, witches, and hippies are today. But at the same time I think pagans interpret Christ like that and wow,,, it's just so confusing. I'd like to think he's more laid back then my past preacher, or my mom(some of the really radical people I had to deal with) but if I'm just saying that to make me feel better.

    I'm essentially protestant in my outlook but I was brought up that way. I'm not currently attending any given church.
