    On the Fence

    God in general is something that I'm on the fence about. One side of me wants to believe that there is something out there for me. The other half doesn't believe in him at all....this half tends to hate what he and religion stand for. The fact that gay/bi/lesbians are going to...

    It's... Unstable

    In The Aspect Of This

    Religion is merely man made tradition, as are all of they're pagan holidays that they label holy... Shame I mean.  Why do men live their lives daily in sin and repent on Sunday I will never know..Jesus Christ IS our Sabbath, it is no longer a pre -set day. He became our Sabbath...

    Not Me

    Religion per se I think keeps more people away from God then anything else. Religion is manmade and therefore self serving. Believe in God, know Christ died for you and that is all you need to know. Nothing to be unsure of there

    Spirituality is your life's experience as a human and not avoiding the facts. Religion is following someone else's and saying forget the facts.
