    Trying To Find Some Answers

    Not only was I raised without religion, I was told that Jesus Christ didn't exist.  I am now a member of a Christian church and I agree with all of the teachings regarding how I should . . . live my life, treat other people, etc.  The problem is, I don't know how to...

    I Want to Believe In God

    I truly want to believe in God, I was raised in a catholic family, and I used to have faith when I was a kid. Now I'm 18 years old and my faith is gone. I'm currently studying physics; everything in science is based on facts, if you can't prove it, then it doesn't exist. I would...

    Sometimes, Things Are So Hopeless.

    I don't believe in God like a lot of people do - I don't worship any deity or lord, I don't praise him, I don't claim to have anything special.  I'm just a relatively normal kid with a bad outlook on life and horrible social skills.  In short, I'm alone in this world...

    I want to believe but religion seems to be the opposite of what i am. I was taught religion but i never believed in it. The idea of god seems real to me but i have never found a religion that seems to call to me.

    Skeptic Who Wants To Believe

    I'm 19 years old and I was raised in a non-religious family. My dad used to say "I go to a round church where the devil can't corner me." That was the most we ever talked about religion. I've always considered myself agnostic as I was skeptical about God. I have always been...

    You Do? Why?

    Christian god: ~demands you love him first ~needs you to believe in him with no proof ~sometimes offers affection, but it's always fleeting ~requires you to follow and look for him forever ~is jealous: you're not allowed to shop around for a deity that suits you better ~promises...
