A little kid's adventures with spirituality

Ok the post title may be a bit misleading. I admit I'm not a little kid. Well, not ' technically'. But in my heart I guess I'll always be one. (Plus I behave like one at times.) And that's why the title says so. Anyway, I've always liked the idea of a blog where I can just talk crazy about spirituality in general. I like thinking a lot about stuff and spirituality is one of my favorite topics to think about. So I thought this would be a great place to share m thoughts. I call this my adventures with spirituali. because I used to be someone who went through whirlwinds of being spiritual, not being it, and then coming back to it. Maybe you guys will find this fun.So my adventures really do begin when I was a kid. I was a bit confused with the bible. I mean i knew that it had many great thoughys in it, but some of it seemed to be a bit against the god I thought I knew. At around seven I remember thinking why people used to tell me I should fear God. In my view God was full of love. Why should I fear someone who loved me and who I loved. My questions were unanswered and so I had to wait for the answers for a long time. I just left the questions and went on to other things. But somewhere I knew I had to get answer. What I used to think was that one should not fear God but simply love him and try to be a good person. And still I think the same. I mean look at it, if you love someone unconditionally wouldn't you want them to love you back? So dont you think God who loves us many times more would wany us to love him back. So that was one little thought I had. I don't know if any of this made sense to you. But if it did tell me what you all think about that idea. :)

Yes I've been told that. But isn't respect through love better than one through fear? When I say I love God I surely respect him as well. I'm not sure if my idea is right or not, but generally I've found that I can respect people I love more easily than those I fear.
