I Can't Stand It When People Fight Over Religion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,379 People

    First of all, there is no "religion" you

    either believe in God or you don't, and if you don't you're for the devil whether you know it or not because you are against God. So really there is only Christian and atheists but whatever , I'll leave it at you either believe in God or not. Second of all, I do not understand...

    I support and find my inspiration in Norse

    paganism and I keep it to myself. But those who know and are of other religion mainly Christians since that's the main religion of the US. They love giving all sorts of fun about it.

    It Doesn't Matter

    I heard the words of one priest: "It doesn't matter if someone is Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Jehova's wittness, Hindu or other. It does matter if they are good people" And I agree with him. The most important is what kind of person we are; if we are good or evil. You can...

    The Path of Enlightenment

    The path of enlightenment comes from within. Proof of god cannot be found in a book or a church. It does not come from wood and stone. "God" can only be found in the choices that we make. Do not look for god in the sick and the dying - they are waiting for YOU to help...

    Christianity And Hypocrisy

    I am a Christian. I have always been a loving, joyful person. Loving people in spite of their flaws and choices. Because I too have flaws. I too make choices others do not like. I do not want others to walk around looking down at me in a metaphoric way just because they have...

    Two things I don't argue

    or fight about. Religion and politics. Everybody has a right to believe in who and what they want. Who am I or you to judge ?

    Every religion has the one true god,

    but they can't decide which has that one true god. Wars have been fought over who has the one true god. You don't see wars fought by those who don't know or don't care; like the humanists; spiritualists; agnostics or atheists.

    Ugh

    I'm an atheist and think all religions are pretty amusing and ridiculous in their own ways, but I understand that everyone has their own religion and beliefs that help them sleep at night. Mine is science. But I don't know why people have to fight about it. Can't you just accept...

    Stomachache

    Let people choose what they want to believe in!

    Religion doesn't make a person! Plus most people only follow the parts of their religion that benefit them at specific moments or ignore them for the same reason! There is no point in fighting when the people fighting are usually hypocrites!

    I think a lot of people have this problem.

    Like it have friends that are forced to go to church. In my eyes that's abuse. No? You should be able to choose your religion. That is a self journey. Your parents can't make that up for you. It's YOUR decision. Alright.

    One Dysfunctional Church

    I grew up in a church that was, to put it mildly, dysfunctional.  It was started in the 1700's, and in the 1800's one faction of the church split off from the main body over some vague point of doctrine.  You would expect that the "new" congregation would go...

    Religion... Well Now, That's Actually Part of the Problem

    Religion is just a set of Covenants, Standards or Rules set up by a group of people who feel basically the same way, about a deity, concept, a person, place or thing.  Most every society past and present has had a religion or something like it. The...
