I Believe In God But Not Religion

This is a group for healthy debate, ex<x>pression & openmindedness on the topic of a power greater than us, & the belief w/o the practice of religion 204 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It's true I do. I'd say I'm

    rather agnostic. There are so many religions and all people do is say that theirs is real and others are not. But some do pick and choose traits and characteristics of different belief systems and kudos to them. I think there is god or no I know there is God. But all the Allah...

    There Is Something Out There

    Great site. I grew up catholic, but it didn't stick. I always wanted to believe in god, heaven... an afterlife. Like everyone here. An afterlife? Eternity? According to my concept of eternity, that sounds terrifying! Right now I love yoga, so does that mean I get to do yoga...

    My Belief

    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...

    Religion: a Perversion of Spirituality

    I pretty much grew up in a Baptist church environment. If you're familiar with that, you know the tenants which they expect you to accept. I even got a BA degree from Howard Payne University with a major in the Bible and a minor in English. Part of that education is involved a...

    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...

    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...

    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...
