Despite what some folks say, it's healthy to question what we have been taught about spiritual things. No one person or school of thought has all the answers, although some may have more than others. To explore, to reason and to find what resonates with your own soul is what's most important. You have a relationship with the Divine Spirit of the Universe... that relationship does not have to be a cardboard cutout of someone else's beliefs. What worked for them may be detrimental to you.
