Were you raised in a religion?
Yes. That's where I met God, but He and I don't hang out there anymore.
Did you practive that religion in your 20's?
Yes. I even went to a Christian college. After my church, whose leaders promised to subsidized the college, broke their word and withdrew support from the school to buy themselves million dollar paintings and jet fuel, I was slightly disenfranchised.
Did you go back to a religion after you had kids?
I do not have kids and don't plan to. I think if I did have kids, I would find some form of formal religious training for them.
Curiously, the Greek word the apostle Paul used to describe the Old Testament law was "pedagogue," which means "baby sitter." My understanding is he was implying the formal rules of religion are for the spiritually immature and those that understand fully do not need to be told/reminded regularly how to live in love.
Now, I find numerous analogies between strength training and spiritual training...
