In my years I’ve come to understand the word “God” is simply whatever each person holds sacred in this world. If that’s love to you, that’s fantastic. You’ve won the jackpot. I just don’t call it “God”, because I have no need to join a community for support. That doesn’t stop me from being at peace with myself, mind you.

What confuses me is when people tell other people to repent when they know nothing of what they’ve done or what their life has been like. It’s really strange to me, and even seems presumptuous (and by extension a bit disrespectful). Why do you have to repent because you don’t believe in the same definition of the word “God” as a couple other people? The word amounts to the same things you hold holy.
