    Slowly Losing Faith

    All of a sudden I just stopped praying to God. Not entirely, but lesser prayers are coming from me. I don't know why I loss all interest but I feel like it's because HE hasn't answered a very personal problem of mine. Yes, HE has fixed my other personal/family problems but what...

    There's Something There

    We're not all here because of some great cosmic coincidence. I believe in science, but there's a huge part of me that refuses to die that doesn't just believe, but feels and knows that there is a divine power up there somewhere. But, just because I believe in God, doesn't mean...

    On Religion And My Child

    Today, my child asked about God and how He is perceived across all religions. In my mind, all I could think about is "This is it. This is the point where I decide on how to bring my child up regarding religion."I knew beforehand the moment will inevitably come. It was a matter of...

    It's Getting Harder To Be Positive

    I have always been a religious person. I believe in God with all my heart and although I am no longer a regular church goer, I still pray and talk to the Lord daily. I have had a lot of ups and downs in life (mostly downs it seems), but my faith has carried me through. I am...

    I Believe In God But I Committed a Mortal Sin

    I believe in God really, because several times I make a prayer request he always grant it. Like when I asked if the guy that I liked so much would hopefully fall in love with me though it's really quite impossible because he's very shy and very reserve person. God really granted...
