I believe in God and all but church is so freaking boring I can't take it!! I try to sleep but my grandma makes me stay up. I sometimes want to cry because of how boring it is.

Like you I too believe in God and spirituality, however the reason church is so boring is for the same reason literary analysis is boring. I say this because you have a book (the bible) which has been written intentionally vague, so as to fit most situations and as if that is not bad enough has also been written in such a fashion that allows for interpretation. So with all of that, you get to listen to an "official" who has gone to school to discuss this book and what it might mean, and how to best discuss it with not one or a few but MANY people, all of which might have differing ideas about the same subject, and then you have to take all of this and make some sort of sense with it so, they can then "follow" your lead on the whole mess. AND, then there are a whole series of contradictions which can lead to all of the after church bible study groups (which consequently make things even more confusing and frustrating). This is why the whole subject is called theology and not science. Science is based on facts rather than belief. Now don't get me wrong I'm not knocking religion, I believe everybody should have something they believe it. However be sure you know what YOU believe and then stick to it. To be sure you may not always agree with everybody, but you will always know where you stand. Regrettably not everybody knows where they stand, which is why they go to church, this way they can either be "led" in their faith, or they may "find" their way. In the end it can be a great quest to answer all the questions we don't have answers to. The key is the answers lie in YOU, not from what somebody else has to say. No I don't believe this makes you GOD either, I just believe we all have to find our own path.0
