    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...

    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...

    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...

    Christ centered life and wanting to live a 20 year old tertiary life....It's really hard! Everyone in my youth seems to have their life together.

    I may have stopped going to church,

    but I will always believe. I stopped going because all it seemed to do was teach how to judge others; I'm not worthy of that, and never will be. All I see when I look at others is people. I like that about myself.

    Never Needed Organized Religion

    I was brought up in a household that was ostensibly Protestant but church had a very small part. As a child my parents sent me and my sister but never went themselves... And I liked singing, I liked being in the choir, but not much else about it. The sermons lays seemed...

    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...

    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...

    How To Get In Heaven?

    1. God Loves You! The Bible says in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God loves you more than you can ever imagine. 2. The Bad News All of us have done...

    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...

    I believe in God but not religion just to many

    church's run by man made rules. I not prayed for years or read the bible but I do truly believe. I think it's important to do something more about my belief in God.

    A God is like a flowing river

    and religion is a dam in it, blocking and controlling our perception of a God.

    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 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...

    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...

    I'm Done With Religion.

    My entire life, I've had an inexplicable belief in God. For as long as I could remember, before my parents even spoke one word of religion to me. My whole childhood, however, was spent inside the confines of a conservative Christian church that promoted sexism, prejudice, and...
