    Far more pagan in my beliefs now.
    Asatru or Wiccan or Odenian?

    I didn't want all of that. I just wanted to find God. I found incredible solace in the blood of truth; and so much more.

    It's as though you have sprung fully formed from the Bible itself. It is as though the Bible has given birth to your Christianity.

    And barely hidden behind your Bible Believing Christianity is a dismissal of other Christians.

    And it is as though you are not a product of religious warfare, torture and murder, but simply born of your own imaginings. It is as though you are pure - a Puritan almost.

    I don't feel like debating right now. My mind is focused on other things.

    I don't think NTs are any less religious than any other MBT group.

    I think our religious poll numbers are artificially lowered due to the NT personality description attracting those who idolize and worship NT tendencies. I think they assume these characteristics are supreme and correct and just and that these characteristics are incompatible with religion. This is ironic, of course, because they're actively worshiping a Jungian identity invention instead of a bread-and-butter genre of god. This means that, perhaps, NT types are more religious than any other personality group.

    Regardless, I'm an NT Christian and there are tons of us. We're not rare.

    Probably wrong.
