That just about sums it up.
I have no idea how people latch on to those teachings for their whole lives. I considered myself a Christian and believed in God up until the age of 10. Then I just stopped believing and got absolutely tired of it. I left religion behind when I was a kid with the tooth fairy, santa clause, and the easter bunny.
