Understood, but being an adult, also means to be able to rationally sit back and assess what is real, and what is "baggage".
Someone made the comment that I would only find the answers by looking within myself. I wish I knew how to do that because I feel I am so totally mixed up religion wise that I don't know what to really believe in. The comment about the pentecostal still having some things that stick with him years after being in that religion hit the nail on the head. There are things that do stick with you whether you like it or not.

My only reasons for refusing to publically disclose the proof on this site is that there is always a chance that word could get around to other members of my husband's lodge and draw negative attention to him. I will not do that to him. As it is, if a few members of his lodge ever saw this whole thread, they would immediately know who I was from posting about my religious upbringing.
