I Dont Believe In Religion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 116 People

    it impossible to relate all religions (except

    for Mormons and scientologists). The different beliefs by different people dont just make any sense with the evolution of man. Muslims are like Allah is the only god, dont pray him and the rest 6 billion ppl go to hell. Christians go like praise Jesus and Hindus believe like in...

    I believe in god. I don't believe in any of

    these religions written by man. My Mother wants my sisters and I to become muslim and I don't want to be muslim. I'm not sure what to do. I respect everyone's beliefs and religion though.

    You tell someone a plate is hot they have to

    touch it to see if it is. You tell someone there's a man in the sky they believe you.

    I believe that religion is used

    as a tool by people to gain power and control over others. Monetary gain is also an advantage. I do believe that there some truths and great lessons in any religion, but you can learn these truths and lessons without religion as well. I just really dislike religion and what...

    Well I Don't Know....

    I'm not sure what I believe... My parents are Christian, but we don't go to church. I mean it's not like I oppose religion. But I don't understand it and I think it was fabricated by ancient humans and passed down through generations. Like folktales I guess. I mean I do pray...

    Religion Is War

    Religious beliefs to me were always kind of funny because of the way they claim they want peace and harmony and that the morals of religion A are better/more important than the morals of religion B. Yet at the same time they can't see that all religions want the same thing...

    God's law is the only law.

    God's law is love. Therefore if it is not of love, it is not of God. Apply this to your religious teachings. Are you worshiping God or the book?

    Standing on the outside looking in,

    gives me perspective and opens my heart. It allows me to see the good and beauty of other faiths. So far, the only ones that have condemned me are the bible Christians. Fortunately they are not God!
