Are you?"oh, I didn't know you were religious.."stop" Oh, they are very religious too..."Stop"Are you studying religion in school?"STOP.please.stop.No religious rules, or people speaking to me, could have changed my heart of stone. I attacked others verbally who even mentioned God, I had a disdain for faith. His love changed me. His real, true love. I follow God as a desire to be in relationship with Him who set me free.
