    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...

    Bring him back or take me with him God.

    That's my deal. You bring him right back home, safe and sound, or you take me too. Because there's no way in hell I'm going to sit here and let him suffer like this. There's no way on earth I'm going to do nothing. There's no way in heaven you could let this happen. I thought...

    I Often Drift In And Out Of My Beliefs

    When I was a kid I always had a hard life and only thought of God as...God, not really all powerful and loving. I got mad at him when something bad happened and I was an odd kid, I wasn't a bully, I was bullied but I was also kind of mean (possibly cause of how people were...

    Confused

    I have been reading my bible alot lately and get really confused. I believe that God is the creator of the earth and that he sent Jesus to die for our sins. One of the things that I have a problem with is the church. Doesn't the bible say that you should attend "church"...

    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...

    Because me sampled churches.

    And talked to God. And found differences. Like books wrong. And preachers lying.

    The Story of My Life

    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...

    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...

    I've always felt in my gut

    that god doesn't like me. Long before I'd ever set foot in a church, knew anything about religion or was really even old enough to think about it (beginning around age 7) I just always knew he didn't care for me. That's not to say I've had a terrible life. I had a great...

    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...
