People keep telling me and my mom that God loves us. Pray to god. God has a plan for all of us, and on and on. The problem is, we didn't grow up with a religion so I don't exactly know if God is real or if God is an idea. Very unsophisticated when it comes to religion. I figure there must be a God or something great for the world to be the way it is. Almost all of my friends are Christians and I'm even married to a Caucasion who grew up as a lutheran, but I don't quite know or believe if there is really a plan for every person. My friend Ali says that you don't have to be baptized to go to heaven, just accept Jesus as a gift. She's catholic. My husband says that you have to be baptized. Myself, my children, my parents have not been baptized. My friend Rina, catholic, says that she believes God is too great to only pick the baptized to go to heaven, that as long as you are a good person, you get to go even if you are buddhist or just a person like me with no religion. I wondered if I should get my mom baptized just in case. I think I'm just confused.
