I Am Not Religious But Believe In God

    Religion Is Not An Excuse For Crime

     Religion bites. There is more theft, violence and murder attributed to religion than there really should be for something that preaches "harmony, love, peace". For some reason, all religions take the Old Testament view that you should "love thy neighbour as...

    I Don't Believe Religion Is Right

    I believe in God, but not Religion. I see Religion as a reason for believing in God like. "My parents were Christan's, so I am too"  Even if half the time your not sure if you believe in God. I don't believe in Evolution, in fact I find it to be incredibly stupid...

    Not Religious And Not A Hater Either But,

    I am Agnostic I guess. The teachings of God come from way back 2000yrs and all point to the Mother Mary who was a virgin but became pregnant after seeing the Angel Gabriel, who basically delivered the message to her that she was now bearing God's child. That to me is the same...

    I Am Not Religious, But I Do Believe In God.

    I am not religious, but I do believe in God, & I guess there's kind-of a story behind why I don't have a religion. When I was a kid, though my mom wasn't religious & didn't even attend church, she sent me & I heard a lot of things while attending that I...

    I believe in God, and I guess I would consider

    myself a Christian but honestly I'm just not that religious. Religion is just annoying, and religious debates are frustrating especially when people ask me to prove the existence of God, and I have to spend so much time explaining to them that I can't prove it, and that my...

    I'm Still Not Sure

    I wasn't raised in a strict religious family. My parents both claim to be Catholic, but don't practice it. They never forced me to go to church. But they did force me to go to Sunday school. So I never really was completely religious. At the age of 11 or so I became extremely...

    Not Exactly Sure What I Believe

    My mother is "Catholic" I guess.. when she was younger she always went to Catholic schools and whatnot, but couldn't stand it, so as a result never took me to Church or anything like that.  She thought she was doing me a favor, but now that I'm 24 I'm not so sure...

    Religion Is Not God

    Faith is. To Face is. I am a Catholic by birth and still are up to this moment, but I do not practice the rituals of this religion for I am not religious. I'd rather be called Godly or a believer of the supreme being, whatever name we call IT, and in whatever form. I firmly...

    James 1:27

    Since deciding to take control of my belief a couple of years ago, I've learned more about God that I think I ever would have otherwise. I want absolutely nothing whatsoever with religion, other than what is contained in James 1:27. And in case your pastor hasn't told you, there...
