Beliefs?

Excerpt from one of the letters:

"While in the car on the way to church, I started to think about my beliefs for the first time. Do I need to believe in something that probably never happened, and waste one day a week going to some building just to be deemed good and go to heaven? Do I have to believe in the same things my parents believe in? What if everything taught in churches and temples aren’t true? Can I believe in no particular religion and remain a good person? Am I turning into a horrible person just as my mom always predicted?"
