      Me personally, i really don’t know how i feel about Jesus. I grew up learning, and believing in him, and as i got older, and my knowledge of religion or spirituality grew he faded in my belief system. I believe in GOD, GOD the almighty, and the creator and higher of all things! theres too many wishy washy concepts of a jesus lol, the tom cruise looking one, then the one thats described in the bible to be black, at the end of the day we will never know until that time comes. but GOD is def real
