Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I wanted to study hard and get as many scholarships as I can so I can move away to college and won't have to bother abide by my my mom's rules of going to church every Sunday. honestly its wrecking me apart. I'm busy and her forcing me to believe in something I don't, makes me feel angry... I can't tell her cuz she will just say it again... I'm a bad child of god for leaving him behind. but I don't and I try to believe in him but not the way she wants me to... I don't want to pray rosaries every Sunday or everyday in the month of October.. and twice on my birthday ( my bday is October)....the way religion works is just based on how people do it. and existence of god is based on our hearts.. I know I'm a good kid and religion doesn't have to prove me to be a good one. plus it doesn't calm me down... no offense to her its a waste of my 20 minutes.. I could've been rushing out research paper and use my 20 minutes on that instead of praying repetitive our fathers and hail Marys ......

  • explain you wouldn't want to worship a false idol. And in your eyes, her religion is wrong. after that she won't be happy but its not your fault and shouldn't bother you. if you truly are a good person, you won't need to go to church. do some research on the origin of her religion and point out their are older religions out there....

  • Before the Lords prayer Jesus said "Pray not in vain repetitions as the heathen do." No kidding. I say never stop seeking God, but maybe charity work or study would do better for you? Confucius once said, "I was told I could learn much from mediation, so I spent an entire night fasting and chanting. I learned my time would have been better spent reading." Prayer is important, but repetitive prayer doesn't seem to me what Jesus really wanted. Ilike reading ancient prayers. My favorite is, "Thanks be to the name of the Lord God, for all of his mercy, and all of his blessings, and all of his miracles." I feel you for sure. I got so bored during church I read the while Bible twice. That helped me more then chanting. It made me contemplate the nature of God.
