For people of the right age and thinking, choosing a religion can be the easiest thing to do. For one, you already have a deeper understanding of your spirituality and a set of beliefs to go by with. You have your own stand and limits to things you are ready to commit yourself to and things you don’t want to. Choosing then your religion will be such an exciting thing to do because you know deep down, that the religion you chose will be suitable for your beliefs and practices.
A Perspective to a New Perception
Children who are imposed on religion from birth grow up to adapt to religious customs and beliefs that these children don’t even understand completely. They then do it, because they are told by their parents, and it is their responsibility to do so, later on in life, the tendency becomes greatly exposed to them being confused with what they want and what they are expected to do and believe in. Children are bought baby bottles, baby monitors, baby clothes and everything else, but is it really better to be also given a religion right away without knowing what it is and how it will fulfill your spiritually?
Children may be taught the basics of religion for them to know what is going on, and to be a foundation of their spirituality, but a grown individual with the right to choose a religion due to want and pure need of the soul, has a much better outcome for the person and his stronghold of beliefs. We know how religion is such a sensitive topic and maybe writing this one is even a risk, but people ought to know that this is reality and children should have the chance of a clean slate in forming their beliefs and spirituality before anyone else can.
