It's the same reason for most religious people, I grew up around it. now you can't say for that fact religion is nothing more than my upbringing, religion is never more true if you discover it through searching for "truth" or whatever.
i never even fully understood what i was doing until i was confirmed, it opened my eyes, and i have found absolutely nothing wrong with my religion. people misinterpret it, and judge it, but it doesn't sway me away from it. people say soo many bad things about what i believe in, it saddens me because they have the most warped view on what it is i believe, i can understand it pretty good in my mind, but i struggle to connect my thoughts into words.
