Another Religion Thread

It's been a very long time since we last had a thread about where you stand religiously. as a precaution, even though no one ever listens to this:

-be ****ing respectful
-Infractions and bans will be handed out here just like the rest of the forum is you decide to act like a jackass.

As for me personally, I've done a lot of spiritual exploration in the last couple of years, and ultimately I fit into absolutely no establishes religion. I guess if you really want to break it down, I'm a Christian Pagan - sounds contradictory until you do the research. The two religions were once one and the same, but then...well, politics and what have you. You won't find anything mentioning such a thing in any current religious text, and you have to dig pretty deep to get the truth.

Might as well post my thoughts even though I try to avoid religious discussion on the internet like a plague

I'm Christian, but I'm no where near as religious as my parents or other family members. To put it simply, I do believe in a higher deity, but I don't try to force my beliefs in every facet of my life

At this point in my life I'm an atheist, but I do a lot of religious studies to learn things about them. I spend an exceptional amount of time studying shinto, and I find christianity interesting, but I am dissuaded for now. I do intend to talk to a preacher and tell him that I feel that I am a good person, but I don't believe in the all-powerful lord. I intend to do this to see his thoughts, which I expect will not be 'As long as you live as the Lord wishes then you are pure in his eyes', given that the only church nearby is sorta bigoted.

I also want to get blessed at a shinto shrine one of these days.

Hi Everyone.

The fact that Super has to warn us against being disrespectful towards each other is just one more reason I don't belong to any given religion. I've studied and have met people of particular religions and all they do is try to convince me why their doctrine is best and pick on other people's beliefs that clash with their own.

I may disagree with Satanism and Atheism, but it's not my place to judge others based on what my beliefs are. I'm no better than anyone else here. There is much pain in the world today. Some turn to God for solace, others go with Satan or choose to tackle their issues solo with no belief in any higher power. Personally, I can't step outside, look at the trees, clouds and animals and not believe that it was all created by a supreme being.

The important thing is that we all never give up seeking happiness and direction in life which is a path with many turns. Live your life in a way
that you honestly believe in your heart is right and spiritual for you. If that means worshipping Satan or going solo, then so be it. It's your right, and never let anyone strip you of that freedom by trying to change or convert you to a belief system that you feel in your heart is not for you. NEVER change who you truly are to accommodate others.

I'm not religious in any way. I don't not believe in God, but that doesn't mean I think he's real either. I'm a seeing is believing type of person. If there's no proof then, well.

I dunno what I am. Hell, I don't even know if I'd consider myself Christian any more. All I know is that Jesus seemed like a pretty chill dude that just wanted people to be excellent to each other, so I try to do that.

I am Christian, was raised Baptist, but I'm not really religious. I don't go to church. I don't shove Christianity down peoples throats, and I have many friends of different religions/no religion at all. I do wish people would show the same respect to me, as it does hurt a little when friends talk about how stupid Christianity and pretty much make fun of Christians. I think some of my friends tend to forget that I am, in fact, Christian since I'm not in your face about it, also because I am bi and for gay marriage(which most Christians kinda frown upon). I believe love is love though. I also believe that everyone has freedom to choose their religion. Yes, the Bible does say to go out and preach, but it doesn't say to force. You're suppose to spread the word to those who don't know it, and then let them decide for themselves. I believe most people know who God and Jesus is, so it's up for them to decide. I won't judge someone based on their religion, as it really doesn't have any impact on me. Believe what you want to believe.

I was baptised under the Church of England.
Used to believe in God, and even went to church regularly out of my own choice (these experiences were sort of marred by the Sunday School people trying to make me go with them rather than staying through the whole service. I just thought, Guys, I'm 13 I don't want to join Sunday School I come here for the actual service).
For the past two years or so I haven't really believed. I don't know if God exists or not. If I did believe that he existed, then I'd probably have a more deist view of him rather than theist.
