    I Question My Past Beliefs

    I went to catholic school and I am currently going to a catholic school. I'm starting to question the existence of a God and if Jesus was his son. But what is keeping me from believing is the corruption and miss use of religion around the world and throughout history. I am...

    Spirituality Does Not Equal Organized Religion

    I consider myself a spiritual person actively engaged in improving my relationship with my higher power.  However, I do not feel the need of a 3rd party's help.  My view of organized religion, ALL organized religion, is that it combines the worst aspects of superstition...

    I am not into religion.

    I believe one can find peace within themselves and you can be a good person without going to church. It's complicated because my husband does go to church every Sunday with the kids. He learned to respect my decision of not going.

    Religion Vs. Principles

    Belief does not equal Religion, and vise versa. The religion my parents had brought to my personality only a few principles that society is based on, but not the belief in the religion. As I grew older, and saw and sampled more, I came to the conclusion that many religions at a...

    Religion Is Evil

    I was brought up in a Baptist home. My parents were active in the church. They were the youth ministers and all in the church loved them and respected them. I have 2 siblings and we were all made to attend church and act like a respectable Christian family. On numerous...

    If You Want To Be Religious, Enter Not The Gate Of Any Organised Religions.

    If you want to be religious, enter not the gate of any organised religions. They do a hundred times more evil than good, because they stop the growth of each one's individual development. Study everything, but keep your own seat firm. If you take my advice, do not put your neck...

    Hey There, Lord, It's Me..

    I'm not a religious man, in the sense that I never use the word Hate, except when speaking about the God the church created. Because there is a serious difference between 'religion' and 'the church'. Religion can be a good thing for an individual, because religion is a form of...

    I find religions interesting

    and all but honestly, I'm not sure I can be in one. I just can't... Believe that strongly... Especially when I can see the faults with them. What humanity's past touch has done to corrupt them. If teachings as such has such consequences, then they're no longer thing that came...

    And I Am Much More Happier Now

    I often wonder why some people who were brought up in religious homes either stop believing, or continue to. I think it is impart the level of indoctrination and the person's personality. I was brought up in a home where my mother was Catholic. My dad was agnostic. He didn't...

    I do have religious friends,

    however I'm not nor will I be one. I have no problem being friends with religious people. When other side is flipped ones still with me are true. That's painful to see how some people don't accept each other. I just don't like religion pushed on me.

    I used to be super Catholic.

    I prayed the rosary like every night. I was pretty clueless about religion though. Then, i had to take this religion class for college and realized how much **** goes down because of everyone's beliefs. So Religion class made me loose my religion... Ironic much? Hahaha

    Religion Confusion.

    I wish more than anything that I could say that I am religious, but I'm not. I feel scared and nervous about not knowing what's real and what isn't. I want to have faith in something and trust with all my heart that what I believe in is, in fact, true. It's...

    I was loosely raised Catholic

    but I think religion closes minds rather than frees them. I believe religion is a fabrication by humans to rationalize existence and the unknown. I believe that religion is a detriment to society as a whole and the idea of God (made up by people) divides us. I believe that...

    I think this is one of the hardest changes of my life. I have always been religious, and perhaps that is what helped me get through the hard times in my life. Maybe that is what I needed. But there are a few things, that at the time, I didn't, or perhaps wouldn't consider. Maybe...

    I don't have a religion.

    I do however follow the virtues of Norse paganism. It's in a man way, badass. But it is a pretty neat way to view life but it's not for everyone.

    We're Not All the Same.

    I feel that religion causes problems. Too much hate and waring over it. I think it's unnecessary because if you have faith thats all that matters. But not everyone has faith, and you should just accept that everyones different.
