I Am Different

How I Was Raised

I was raised with the idea of a punishing God. A God who looked only at my sins and not my good points - venial sins, mortal sins, all kinds of layers of sin. I was constantly afraid of committing sins knowingly. I knew that some indescribable but very bad things would happen if I did sin, and worse yet, that sinning would make me a bad person.

Now, I know that sinning is just simply missing the mark of being the highest.
