    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...

    Oh trust me. I want to believe.

    I pray at night, and I just try to get myself to believe to no avail. I just can't believe. My mind won't let me. There isn't logic, yet at the same time, people have believed for so long. Is there anybody today that can say that they actually saw God and have proof? No. But is...

    I thought I saw God in people when I made them my 'loving' colours -that is,red white green and blue for males (God as father or brother),andcyan black magenta and yellow for females (God as mother or sister).these colours, to me, were 'loving' as opposed to concerned with...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    It Would Be Nice, But It Seems Too Ridiculous.

    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...
