I'm christian(ish) I've believe in christianity but I except that fact that I could very easily be wrong, and that I could very easily except another religion, put it this way, I've yet to discover a religion I truly believe in. But my biggest belief is- If you believe in something with all your heart, mind and soul then it is true, no matter what it is.
i was Christian/Catholic when growing up, now i feel like half atheist i don't know right now. i do believe in the supernatural though. i do believe in evolution. i think some things in the bible are proven to be historically or scientifically correct or partially correct.
I'm a Christian. I don't like being judged by other religous groups nor do I judge them myself. I can't control what faith people go with, but I stick to my faith in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit no matter what anyone says. It was hard for me to post here because the topic of religion can be sensitive, huh? But, I just wanted to admit my faith proudly.
Matthew 5:17-19 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
Seems to be that Jesus are God are either the same identity or are just in agreement, and that Jesus plans to uphold the things written in the Old Testament.
Don't mistake this as an attack, by the way. Merely a form of inquiry. With this in mind, with Jesus endorsing the cruelties of the Old Testament, what makes him more respectable than God?
the old testament was different then, infact the old testament we see today was put together by the catholics a few years back. books removed, put in etc. the bible we are thankful for today is quite young when compared to its contents. i do argee with you that jesus would have followed the old testament given to him at the time as he was a faithful jew, but this isnt to say that it is our old testamnt word for word. i myself do not argee with alot of the old testament and i have been confused with the words of my lord jesus and these other jewish men who speak for god, saying such awful things that you to disagree with.
in acts, god himself destroys one of the old jewish laws of not eating unclean animals, saying to the disiples "kill and eat."
Sorry, couldn't help myself when I read the word 'creed' XD Anyway, I do not believe in anything supernatural like a God or Divine being(s). If there does happen to be one, I don't think it's of any use to us anymore.
I'm spiritual. Growing up my parents taught me what they believed, and I've looked into different religions. I've taken the pieces of each that felt right, and have my own unique beliefs. Hardish to explain but yeah, I guess thats it?
I am an atheist and a skeptic. I do not believe in deities, nor anything else supernatural (fairies, ghosts, magic, psychic powers, etc.).
I am also completely self-centered. I feel that the only worthwhile consideration for my actions and goals is personal benefit, as determined by economics. I only care for the wellbeing of others when they are of some value to me. Nor do I see any need to ameliorate suffering that does not effect me personally: if my neighbor's house were destroyed by a tornado, I'd think, "Thank goodness it missed my house!" I am opposed to charity on principle, as it violates the fundamental economic law of quid pro quo. If I cannot benefit from a payment or service, I will not offer it.
My dad's side of the family is Christian Catholic. What's funny though is that half the time, I believe in God, other times I don't. And I do not believe what goes on in the bible whatsoever but I believe in the characters since they seem like they can be real people. Thing is though, I don't believe in the stuff that goes on in the bible like Jesus resurrecting, Moses parting the Red Sea, etc. And the reason I don't believe in those "miracles" is because you don't see that stuff happening in real life. You don't see Criss Angle or David Copperfield doing that stuff.
Me and my family are all part of Lutheran church. Nobody of us actively visits church or we don't pray together, but all the traditional ceremonies are the events we took part. (Wedding, funeral, etc.) But I myself have strongly feel connection to Buddhism or Taoism and the idea of us all being part of the same energy/universe, so all are equal and from same source. I also like wiccan idea of Mother and Father and the elements that are around us and with us. And I respect God, or any God that is out there, Allah, Ra, Zeus etc. because they are and always will be part of our society and culture.
One part Penticostal Christian, one part Messianic Jew. Ultimately though, I don't hold to a specific denomination. I believe Jesus is the Son of God, and that His spirit dwells in me. That's all that matters.
I dunno, primarily I'm an incredibly relaxed atheist but I occasionally draw on LaVeyan Satanic teachings (bear with me) to boost my inner strength/self motivation, I find parts of it useful though most of it I feel is a bit over the top so I don't follow it.... Really in my opinion LaVey Satanism is kind of like Existentialism with a fancy label and more sex but I'll shut up now *sidles off into safe corner before the wave of "eww you little attention whore" replies hits*
