Do you apply logic and reason to all of the morals and teachings of your Holy Scriptures and religion? Or do you apply those principles to your life without questioning it?

I tend to rely a lot on experience. So, for example, were my religion to preach that there's no such thing as a dumb question I would reject it out of hand.
But your religion just made that upI have my own religious perspective because I sense that existence is a profound mystery. Questions arise that lead me to accept teleology. Teleology has implications on what's possible in existence. Or intelligence happens in nature for no good reason. For now I accept that intellect takes intellect to form and become what it is. I accept evolution as part of what goes on. I reject supernatural intervention. I believe it must be true that there is a source reality of which eternal conscious agents might exist. Gods are too powerful to exist in reality.
I reject the idea that life is a cosmic accident that has no imperative for its existence. Life is an eternal aspect of reality in my religion. The foundational reality is the source of all life. Life explores possibilities. The natural world is just one shore in an endless sea of realities. We are bound and limited by the physical world. I suspect one day we'll be loosed from the binds that tie us to this reality. Basically the natural world is only one manifestation of a higher reality.
I didn't know that you had a faith religion. I thought you were a physicalist.But your religion just made that up
I apply heart logic. But of course in understanding the context of the words themselves, I have to apply an understanding of its literature from an historic, rational perspective. In other words, I take a rational approach for a non-rational engagement. I aim to keep my feet planted firmly on the ground as I reach for the heavens which are beyond the reaches of logic and reason.
