    I saw an experience section

    that said "I believe in God!" I wanted to click "me too..." but saw people raving on about specific biblical names and references limited to only those labeled under specific religions or "spiritualities." So I took it unto my own hands to express my own version. I believe in...

    Columbine Tragedy and God

    Okay, so I was having a conversation with someone about religion and they put this out there: (mind you I believe but they are an atheist)... Since it's been 10 yrs since Colombine, why would "a God" have allowed that to happen? Now as open minded as I am, I had no...

    Never Needed Organized Religion

    Definitively

    Yep!! Since an early age, my parents tried making me be a catholic but I did not work for me. Despite having other views as a family, they still consider themselves Catholic. I, on the other hand could never again call myself Catholic or Christian or any other title. I am just me...

    God Is Enough

    I dont think its about what we can get from God. Like we have a wish list or some bucket list and abracadabra - poof!!! God grants all our hearts desires. YES - He is faithful but not to fulfil ALL our every desire. I don't think God has any expectations of us to be rich...

    God And Not Religion

    I believe that this world would be better if people would look inside ALL the religions of the world and see that at the base of them all is LOVE. How many wars, how much blood shed, how much self hatred is spawned in the name of religion. There is a basic moral code that...

    Religion: a Perversion of Spirituality

    If God is benevolent,

    then why does he allow evil to exist? Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is God able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is God both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is God neither able nor willing...

    Religion is man's attempt to scientifically

    systemize faith. Even Jesus' plan is falling apart. If faith is reconcilable with science, it hasn't been accomplished yet. If creating a religion, stick around to maintain it at least. If a fallible human is going to try, they might as well wait until atheism 'wins' and then...

    I have so many beliefs of God it's rediculous, they all apply. God is time, we are Gods, God doesn't care, God doesn't have the time, so on and so forth. My biggest belief of mine is that we are Gods. One argument that God doens't exist is that if he did he would stop world...
