    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...

    Confused

    The Story of My Life

    I am a religious person. I have always had strong faith in God. I pray regularly. In fact, you could say, I have personal conversations with "Him" more often than I recite actual formal prayers. I believe that our lives have a purpose and that "He" has a...

    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...

    My whole family is Christian,

    so I'm automatically a Christian. However, I am a bit skeptical about God in a way. It's not like I don't believe in Him or against Him. It's just I don't feel like God is there. Like when I go to church and people tell their success stories or how they got out of a problem...

    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...

    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...

    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...
