I’m not religious I’m spiritual

What does that even mean? I feel like I should know, seeing as I have said it often enough! How do I explain what I mean by that? “I’m not religious I’m spiritual.” What I’m trying to say is, “I believe in God, and Jesus but I don’t think people have to go to church all the time or that gay people can’t get married and abortion should be illegal.” I feel like if I say I’m spiritual, people tend to nod and be like, “Oh, okay. You’re alright then.” I do read my Bible. I actually take a lot of comfort in what I read. Like today: “..separated for the moment in body but together in heart.” Isn’t that poetic? It’s comforting. My soulmate and I live over 3,000 miles away. I’m in Chicagoland and he lives in Scotland. We’ve been friends for four years and dating for three. We’re separated by miles and miles of land and ocean, but in heart we are together. But back to the Bible/God/Jesus/Spiritual thing. I supported Bernie Sanders last year, by the way. (And then when it came down to it, Hillary Clinton) (Just so you know I’m REALLY not a “Bible-thumper-judgey-wudgey person.”) I think what matters is your heart and your spiritual connection with God. All people are different, and if you do believe the Bible, then logically, it would make sense that God would reach all of us in different ways. Some Christians swear and have tattoos. Some Christians go to church three times a week. Some Christians feel most connected with Jesus when they’re swimming fully nude in a river, and some Christians feel close to Him when they’re praising Him with 5000 other Christians at a revival meeting. Don’t limit God! There’s quite literally hundreds of verses talking about not judging each other and not worrying about what other people are doing, or minding your own business, because God will take care of it. Anyway, so this was a weird little post. I hope somebody out there reads this and smiles! (Besides me, ha ha.)
