    Is it really necessary that a persons faith be organized into a religion...?

    If you accept that there is a higher power than yourself and you require yourself to do the right, fair and proper things..etc.

    Eh...just thinking out loud..

    There are necessary orders, necessary keys in which open, influence the higher levels, deeper planes... It just is... always has been... and likely will forever be... There are systematic cycles that we seem to be bound by and it may not be more about physical or psychological development as it is the combined unity of those and then, too, genetics... Yes... It is, necessarily, religiously influenced.

    Is a person’s faith really necessary at all?

    It's not necessary...but for some, the fellowship of sharing the ceremonies and traditions is part of the appeal.

    When I pray, I pray to God. It seems so silly to me to begin my prayers with, "Dear Higher Power"... I have enough faith to believe my higher power is God.
