    A God I Can Call My Own

    I grew up mormon, and I turned hardcore LDS when I was 14, because I prayed and had a powerful experience.  Basically, I started feeling like I was on fire and felt more joy than I had ever experienced (in immediate answer to my prayer), and I felt like God had manifested...

    Not One and the Same

    I hate when people ask me if I go to church and when I say no they then assume that I don't believe in God... or that I can't believe in God! I'm sorry this to me is ignorant... and they just seem to find me. I have to wonder if somewhere on me a religious person hasn't stamped...

    I Don't Know Anymore.

    I come from a very anti religious family.  They don't hate religion or anything, but they don't believe in it either.  I've never admitted that I believe in God, and am almost ashamed to say I do.  My head tells me there cant be a God, my heart tells me there is...

    Not That I Have Anything Against Going

    I believe God can communicate to us in many ways. Church is one way but there are many others' too. Although I like going to church, because of other factors, I am just unable to but I don't think there is anything wrong with that.

    Don't Know Why I Can't Commit to a Church

    I'm committed to God.  I study the bible, meditate on His word (I really do meditate) His actions, His legacy so to speak.  Then why can I not be committed to a local church.  I've gone to 5 in the last few years, more off than on.  I blame a lot of it on...

    Your Spirituality Should Be a Choice

    I've studied many religions through high school and college and every religion has a different way of worshipping.  Does this mean that any one religion is more right or wrong than another in the way they worship?  I don't believe this to be the case.  I was raised...

    I have not been to church

    Was A Member Of One For 16 Years

    I've visited a few others since leaving that one but I've come to the conclusion that I should allow the Holy Spirit guide me to where I should be.  Maybe I should be a member of a group or maybe I don't need one.  The Lord knows who belong to him and that is his body...

    Just Not For Me

     Honestly, I can't stand church. I mean, I think it's good for some people and hey, go for it, but it's not for me. I hate the idea of it, I guess. Let's go gather once-two-ten times a week and cry, laugh, share our stories about Jesus...? Umm... no, I'll keep my experiences...
