I Love God But Not Religion

    My Love For God Defines Me Not My Religion

    My relationship with God is a personal one.  It is this relationship that shapes my character and who I am - not a church, not my religion.  I am a Christian, but identify more with the bumper stickers that say "God save me from your followers."

    Stubborn

    I do not like being told what my faith should be.  Belief is belief, not something someone read from a book.  I also do not like being judged.  Religion is a funny thing!!

    God Is Everywhere

    I love God but not religion.  I don't have anything against religion, I just have a problem understanding how so many religions profess to be "the one true path to God".  Or that God would send us to "hell everlasting" for not choosing the right one...

    I Love Love Love God

    I LOVE GOD so much and I don't think religion is what makes the relationship press on, I think it's the personal relationship that each and every believer has with their maker. My family has always been extremely religous, not crazy religous but they try. I ...
