"Crystal Mountain" as written by and Chuck Schuldiner....
Built from blind faith
Passed down from self-induced fantasy
Turn a page to justify
Conjuring power - it opens wide
On seventh day,
Is that how it's done?
Twisting your eyes to perceive
All that you want
To assume from ignorance
Inflicting wounds with your
Cross-turned dagger

Inside crystal mountain
Evil takes its form
Inside crystal mountain
Commandments are reborn

All the traps are set to confine
All who get in the way of the divine
In sight and in mind of the hypocrite
A slave to the curse forever confined

Shatter the myth
Don't cut yourself
On your words against
Dreams made of steel
Stronger any faith
That inflicts pain and fear,
Is that how it's done?
Twisting your eyes to perceive
All that you want
To assume from ignorance
Inflicting wounds with your
Cross-turned dagger

Inside crystal mountain
Evil takes its form
Inside crystal mountain
Commandments are reborn

    My Opinion... I'm a Christian.

    and I'm not brainwashed by organized religion. That's an extremely ignorant and closed-minded thing to say.

    In fact, in a lot of ways the "organized church" doesn't agree with me...
    because I follow Christ and not just the strange, amorphous, oft-hypocritical thing called the Church.

    Because, well, I've realized that Christianity is more simple than all of this. I'm not deluded. I think about things. And I know God in the way that I know that people love me. I couldn't actually prove it empirically, but I know in the very core of who I am. I am not trapped. If I am a slave, I am a slave to kindness and love. I am not being duped, and wounded. I try not to be a hypocrite, but I don't claim to be perfect.

    That's what being a Christian is: it's following --no-- it's chasing love. It's a commitment to a man who loves me, too. I don't have all the answers, but I refuse to be stuck, immobile, not choosing a course of action. If I assume from ignorance, atheists do, too. And, agnosticism is "choosing immobility as a means of transportation." I have chosen a path, just as others have. Sometimes, it looks humanist: "to him who knows to do good, and doesn't do it, it is counted as evil." and yet, there's a bigger component, that I trust God and "it is counted as goodness, and [I am] called the friend of God."

    True Christianity is a friendship and a simple way, not a corporation of deep-pocketed politicians and tricksters.
