      The Adventure Time religion?

      I was watch AT, and I realized something about the characters. All they ever did was live in a house, and went out and explored. They ran into different obstacles and overcame them. Whenever someone needed help, they were there to help. They didn't let their own beliefs get in the way of anything, they just helped people.

      Me being a Christian, I've always been looking for ways to live for God. I'm confused and not knowing where to go. What if the answer is the love by my beliefs, and help people and explore just like Finn and Jake? Idk, just something I thought of.

      Religion has always been a difficult thing for me to talk about with people, because, I honestly don't have that much experience with it, so take my word lightly.

      I always say that people who take their religion and holy text and view it as a guidebook for how to go about their life. This is taking it too far. In fact, overzealous devotion to religion has been the cause of many conflicts without history. Rather, you should try to view Christianity (or whatever religion you follow) as a sort of stepping stone to developing your own moral code. I personally believe that all people are strong enough and kind enough to develop into their own person without needing to strictly adhere to any religion.

      Look at Finn. He doesn't follow a religion. He just goes out in the world alongside Jake, who guides him, searching for, well... adventure. He's motivated to become a hero, protect the innocent and bring justice to those who are evil, because he knows it is right.

      If god really loves us, then he didn't make us all separate people so that we could all be mindless drones simply recycling the same philosophies and ideas. I take the fact that we are individuals as a sign that we are meant to spread out and look for new ways of viewing things. The problem is that this often leads to conflicting viewpoints. Both parties believe that they are in the right, and this creates conflict.

      Also, I really like your signature. Are any of the other Dreamcatchers still around?

      I agree and disagree with some of the stuff you said. I'm more at peace with it now, I was searching for something when i posted this. And btw, no, the old dreamcatchers are mostly gone. But I've always wanted to start it up again

      I would say that what you're describing is really more of a lifestyle than something like a religion.

      Also, JadeGreen, I have to disagree about your comment with using one's holy text as a guide for living. That should be exactly what it is used for. And when I say this, I mean as a guide, not a book of laws or strict instructions. The Bible, for instance, lays out a way of life that is meant to promote living with our human brothers peacefully and with respect toward one another. You don't take part in "sinful" acts that promote the destruction of good relations between your neighbors and that disrupt the fabric of society (like adultery, coveting your neighbors property, lying, and murder, etc.). You treat others like you should be treated and even though most don't really appreciate trying to be converted, you at least attempt to spread the word of God so that your neighbors have a choice of being saved (although believing that hell is a burning pit with a lake of fire and stuff is up for debate, even if you are a believer). Basically, it promotes good will and that you accept those who atone for their sins (Jesus dying on the cross to save humanity from their sins being an example of that concept of atonement, and an end of the ways and practices of the Old Testament).

      I'm not even Christian, but I believe the Bible is plenty okay to serve as a guide for people's lives. I don't know how I feel about Islam so much, considering the religion promotes sexism, violence, genital mutilation, those that practice it have sex with young boys for pleasure (yes, read up on the Chi Boy phenomenon, it's a regular occurrence in Islamic culture, and not something that only fanatics do), and other gross transgressions of human rights. Any religion that can avoid commanding or promoting things like that is fine with me, it's no different than being agnostic or an atheist really.
