How do secular adults become religious?

I'm basically an agnostic atheist but I go to Catholic mass every Sunday to keep my grandmother company yet everything they say under that cross just does not stick with me, it all sounds manufactured and full of expensive wishful thinking. I've learned to appreciate so much about religion but it just doesn't seem like something you can believe in if you weren't raised up to believe in it.

i was asking myself the same thing a couple weeks ago and coincidently I was at a gas station and I got a business card from this random person, it had the website JW.org. Never really heard of these people but their website seemed legit and it answered lots of the questions I've been asking myself for a while. you should check it out

Seconding Sufi. Pretty cool, very mystical and all-loving sort of religion.
Alternately, Wicca.

absolutely not
JWs are a cult. I would know, raised one for 12 years before I stopped drinking the koolaid
>>
>>16459897
>cult

and other religions are not ?

I agree the jw's are definitely further out there than most xtian protestant sects, but compared to Mormons they are about equivalent ?

If you see through the bullshit, you can never go back.

Evangelical christfags, however, love claiming they were "atheists" but are now "reformed". All bullshit as well.
>>
i highly doubt that. compared to some other religions i've tried these people are by far the most normal and dont take your money like all churches. Every church i go to i feel like it's all about the money and not really getting close to god. and they dont even use the bible, like why in the hell are u even talking if it isnt from the bible. It's a disappointment
>>
>>16459897
Cousins are Jw they seem like normal people, what normal people do, just they don't celebrate holidays. Which I don't mind. Kind people, when I went to their church, seem like pretty good people.

Can religion make you feel whole? Yes, it can. Will it? That's tougher to say.

Which one is right? That is, as they say, a matter of faith. I'm partial to Jehovah's Witnesses myself, though I can see people queueing up their favorite bait.png variants already.

No, but I can make you feel your hole. weally good i plomis

I am christian (not my name, my religion)
But there is no true religion at all, dont search for approval in others nor in a god. You need your own approval, you need to trust in you and believe in you

Do extensive research into religion and as a result of doing so never be able to buy into it because you'll be able to poke holes and notice everything they plagiarized from an earlier belief system.

Basically, you've got to be indoctrinated into that shit when you're young because then you can deny yourself further knowledge.

I was raised to be religious. It depends entirely on you.
One thing I can say is that you should only opt for a religion that you were raised on, or at least, one that matches your culture. Don't pick up Buddhism or Islam just because they're exotic, or you'll be the only white person in any like-minded group you try to join.

Ultimately, if you weren't raised by a religious family, you already know that whatever you're subscribing to is 100% bullshit, cooked up in the diseased imaginations of some bronze age sapiens. Oh sure, the CONCEPTS are nice. I would fucking love for there to be a "one true church," populated with studious, wholesome, and congenial priests, delivering words from the mouth of god himself, but the only thing you'll find in any branch of the clergy (or Caliphate, or Buddhist monasticism, or etc.) is an incestuous cess pool for the vilest sacks of shit imaginable.
My point is, talk to god, if you think he's there. Don't talk to another human as if he's god.
>>
>>16459797
First you need to feel whole in my opinion. If not, the religion you'd choose would just be an escape from reality. My advice? Try to make your life better. Read Quran, Torah, Bible. Meditate. Read sufi masters like Shams Tabrizi and Mawlana. Don't listen to mainstream science's (mostly) bullshit.

>ISIS is Islam

Don't listen to shitheads ITT. Don't compare a band of blood-thirsty mercenaries to Islam. You can't see the truth if you're not willing to look at it with your own eyes. Go see for yourself what Islam is. Who Jesus was. What did Buddha said. And live a happy and fulfilling life. I pray for you man, good luck.

Islam is the most violent religion of peace in existence

I don't trash Christianity
I don't trash Buddhism
I don't trash Hinduism
I don't trash Mormonism

One religion is violent that exists today in large numbers

Don't be mean to the liberals.

They never really know what they're talking about

Forgive them for they know not what they do

They will be mugged by reality eventually

Shopping for religions is coming at it from totally the wrong angle. If you think "religion" is just something you put on and off like underwear you're just wasting your time. Like are you even being serious right now?
