Because it would be unjust to leave this out of the picture—for whomever may be reading this journal—I've come to find that no, I was wrong. It is not possible to aspire to modesty and celibacy without becoming a religious nut. This is in relation to a previous journal entry where I said it IS possible to have those traits without becoming one (and even though I said "asexual", what I meant was "celibacy"). If you keep following that path—a path that departs from carnal lusts and dissuades others from looking upon you as an object of lust by how you dress—you'll nurture a desire to be pure, spiritual and righteous. In the end, you will pick a religion.
What I hated at the time, when I wrote that journal entry, were Christians and Christianity. It's not Jesus' fault though that most of his followers don't put his teachings into practice. Not that it's an excuse, but as a result I gave knee-jerk reactions to all things "Christian" (or masquerading as Christian anyway). Sadly, their behavior/lifestyle leaves people like me, outsiders, thinking the divine word is full of hot air. It is actually the truth people. Go on and read it.
If you thought Supernatural was epic, just wait. The bible is even better (and actually true, not fanfiction). Can't say I'm Team Winchester anymore.
Let this be a lesson to all: don't get angry with people if they don't convert on the spot. Get them thinking spiritually first, then let their free will, natural curiosity, and most importantly God, lead them to the truth.
John 14:6 (NIV)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
