Why I Do Not Go To Church Anymore

I began a journey 
along a path unknown
toward a future uncertain
without a guide to show me
the right way that I should go

but along the way 
I came to a crossroad
that revealed a new path
on the road to a way of life 
which I then needed to follow

for along this path 
I came to understand
there are many traditions
and doctrines of men which
do not the truth of God reveal

as a result a change
was made to no longer
blindly follow the beliefs
I had learned from my youth
electing not to listen anymore

and so began a new
search for divine truth
as revealed by God alone
along a path that he directs
which is spiritually discerned

for I find in his word  
there are no untruths told
which I need to then unlearn
and that is the sole reason why  
I will not in quenchless hellfire burn

    I liked this very much. Too often God is portrayed as the mad evil wanna get ya one instead of Satan. God is love and eager to forgive. Thank you
