Lately I’ve been wanting to learn more about different religions and also about the Bible. I want to know about them so someday I can teach my future children about the different religions. This may sound strange being that I’m atheist but I think it’s almost always a good thing for children and adults to believe in a god. Generally, believing in a higher power helps steer people in to making morally good choices, so I want my kids to reap the benefits of believing. If they decide to not believe that is okay. I also don’t mind if they choose a different religion than the few I have been exposed to. I just want to be able to teach them and give them options and then let them make the decision.
On a side note, when I do attend church I feel very strange participating in communion. I wonder if the minister/fellow church goers would not approve of an atheist partaking in that ceremony.
