What religion do you identify yourself with?

IrishLassie IrishLassie
I am a born again christian. I attend a non-demoninational church, meaning, it's not associated with catholic, batist, lutheran, etc. It focuses on the teachings and scriptures of the Bible and the general growth of the church and spreading of the Word, through faith/grace of God. I know that I am not perfect, and that I sin, However, I have repented for my sins and through the love of God, I have been saved. I am human, I still slip, I still get tempted, I still do silly, stupid things. I know that I am covered under grace. I doesnt give me the right to continue to "sin", however, it gives me the conviction to know what is wrong and what is right so that I can continue to do the right thing and if do slip up and do the wrong things, all has been forgiven, if I just ask for forgiveness. I have a personal relationship with Christ.

I was rasied in a Christian home and both my husband and I are both Christians.

I didn't call religion 'pure evil' - beck did. Might that not be offensive to some?

I'm pagan with the belief that we came from the earth and should respect it and all of the gifts it provides us in our temporary stay here. I do live by many Buddhist beliefs and teachings, which relate mainly on respect for the fellow man and being in harmony with nature. I am kind and respectful to others whether or not they are to me with the belief that karma will catch up to those who lack a pure heart.

I'm a mixture of lots of things. I can just call myself "spiritual" as I can identify with beliefs from many religions but don't call any particular one my one and only.

I'm an agnostic atheist, which basically means I'm an atheist who doesn't pretend to know the answers.

Because this is the only place most people have funerals, it is not about chruch it is respect for the dead person.

I did not call it pure evil. I said that I believe it is pure evil, and that I respect others rights to have religion. I can not think of anything that has caused more evil, death, and harm to the world than religion.

i'm quite relieved to see that more people are atheist than anything else, as i'm against religion. i definitely didn't expect it!

I am atheist. I was raised catholic. My father was baptist so I would go to church with my baptist gramma as well.

I am the least judgy person there is. I would never say anything about someone because of their religious choice. I think religion is important for a lot of people, and I would never belittle that. I wish people would give me the same respect, when I hear conversations about how atheist people can't be trusted or are bad it makes me really sad. I do a lot of charity and would never lie. I would never say something like that to someone about their religious choices.

Goes to show right.

When I was a kid, I didn't identify with any religion because I wasn't taught to (thank you mom and dad!). My first wife, a devout Catholic (and one of the worst people I've ever known) wanted to wed in a catholic church, so I had to jump through some religious hoops and for a time I identified somewhat with Catholicism. As I got older, I shrugged off that identity and now see myself as a spiritual person, but not a religious one. I don't subscribe to any written text as being the word of God. I do however, have faith that there is a God, and that I have a purpose. Even if that purpose eludes me...which it often does.

I'm the third A after atheist and agnostic - I'm apathetic.

I doubt any higher power exists, but I really have no way of knowing the answers, and to be honest, I just don't care.

I have nothing against religion and theology just so long as no one gets hurt.

The more time goes on, the more I feel like religion is useless and harmful, on a large scale. I'm comfortable with the Church of the FSM, because at its heart, it's about logic and equality, but I have a very hard time with religion. Near-death experiences have brought me to a place where I have a hard time even being spiritual at all anymore.

I don't identify with anything, I believe religion is too woolly and constricting to be of any real use. I don't need to believe in anyone but myself and those around me.
