      I didn't really think about spiritual things outside of church for most of my childhood. I grew up going to church and my mom read the Bible to me when I was a kid, but I don't remember really thinking about it much until my teenager years.

      I had some inclinations or experiences that sorta lead me to guess about the plausability of negative essense or spirit. But in 2011, at age 30, around August if I'm not mistake; there would no longer be any doubt to the Spiritual aspect of life.

      Hard to say for sure. I guess I'd have been in my early teens when I was experimenting with ESP and psychokinesis but recall being aware of sensing things other people didn't back to when I was maybe 10, possibly earlier. I was aware even as a child that I could often sense people approaching and nobody, myself included, could figure out how I knew they were there. I remember feeling a warmth, as if feeling the body heat of someone standing right behind me, but when the person was far enough away it couldn't possibly have been their body heat.

      Certainly by my late teens I'd seen enough of the supernatural that not believing in it was no longer an option for me.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      When I was an infant/toddler I had some experiences even though I don't go into detail about them. Of course those are different experiences than when I got older but I cling to those memories.
