I personally think it is OK and also wonderful. I wasn't raised as a religious person at all. I never attended church or said a pray to God or even knew he existed until I was older. There are many people who find peace and happiness in the spiritual world and live a very happy content life. I for one was raised this way and still live this way today. My mother's side of the family is American Indian. I was taught the ways of her people when I was very young.
There is nothing wrong with believing that the spirits live among us today and they are there to help us. Before religion was brought to all parts of the world the people of America believed only in the spirits of the land, mountain, sky, rivers, and sea. This was so true for so many of the Pacific Island people too. They would pray to the spirits of the ocean to send them food and to keep their people safe when they went fishing. The spirits of war protected the men when they went into battle and the sky spirits sent down rain to water the lands and grow the crops.
These people had no idea about any God or one superior being until the Europeans decided to send out missionaries to all parts of the world and teach the word of the God. I can tell you first hand how it affected the people of the Pacific and especially the islands of Tahiti. The missionaries were cruel people who forced people to believe in their ways. They demanded that they give up their Maraea, their Tikis and all other forms of belief to follow in their footsteps. They even demanded that the people no longer wore their traditional closes and dressed like them. Here on the islands, it was peaceful and people lived in harmony without sickness or death from some illness. Once the missionaries invaded this land people got sicked and died. They were forced to cut their hair and dress like them.
Look what the white man did to the Indians and how the missionaries treated them. They stole their children and took them off to some school where they were forced to cut their hair and dress like these people. The families were torn apart and many of the men started drinking. They lost everything in the name of God. I personally don't find this so attractive and would rather have a spiritual belief in my life and not be forced to change who I am for a God when in reality this God is all around us in the spirits of the land today. Maybe if this never happened there wouldn't be so much war in the name of religion today.
