I am just very spiritual. As I have said before, the relationship that I have with God is one that only He and I understand. I may not go to church or read the bible, but He and I do have a relationship. And I feel that I must make a comment. Why is it, that with most of the posts I have read with your discussions that many say that God gives you the option to choose, and if that is so why do those people feel that they need to read off scripture to you if that is the lifestyle that you CHOOSE? I do not understand. If that is something that you are going to have to deal with when the time comes, then why do so many feel that they have to "save" you? Can you tell that I just don't get it? And I also feel that because of the path that you have chosen, why do "we" (not including me) feel that we as Christians have the right to condemn you because of what you believe in? Isn't it stated in the bible to not judge? I do not feel that it is fair hearing that you get "bashed" all the time for what you believe in. If that is the case then everyone should just have a free-for-all and just knock everyone around for what they believe in!!!!!

hi! I am so in agreement with you! The trouble, I think, is (we) christians are taught (because of a couple of biggie mistranslations) that those who do not believe in Christ will perish. Or worse yet! Burn in some pit somewhere forever and ever (and ever).. - Now I ask ya, does that make any tiny grain of sense? If the supreme power is all good, perfect, and "is love"? Of course not! It's impossible! I mean life is as it is, because man and angel were endowed with thinking ability, thus, choice/'free-will'. Because of this, yes all suffer some (but he suffers all). Does the condition of the world make God a monster?! No, it makes him wise. If he is perfect - and well, he is Life itself, the life force, he must and can only be Perfect, for Life, to remain Living/Alive can only be excellent. And being perfect, he has done all things in order to bring about the-most-perfect-of-outcomes. Which means when Jesus overcame the grave, it was for all. After a long 'day' of review, commonly called 'judgement day' (should merely be "results day") after a long day (500 years) of examining all things, all will believe. And there is good in all faiths and beliefs... But people try to convert usually with the best of intentions..

I grew up a methodist and had no problem being a "sheep" so to speak, but when I got older and had my own thoughts I began to identify with the Pagans in some respects. I'm not a "practicing" anything at the moment. I have my own views and understandings of the spiritual world, which together do not fit under any particular denomination, but I'm fine with that.

I am a Pagan if you want a quick answer but my path is a blend of old school Witchcraft, Buddhism, Occultism, Native American spirituality and a combo of Vodu and Hoodoo...kinda of hard to explain really...why am I on this path...because its what works for me and has for many yrs...I've always been a Witchy Pagan person but didnt knwo it had a name til I was an adult as a kid I believed in god and the bible but it just didnt feel right however I didnt know anything else existed...When I was in my 20's I met a woman (whom I adore she is like family to me) who introduced me to Wicca...followed that for a yr or so but moved on from there because living the life I have I cant be a white light type person since life just isnt like that and there were certain things that jsut didnt sit with me....I studied then switched over to old school Witchcraft and have studied and blended various paths into the path I walk now....and I'm sure its not over..I mean we continue to learn til the end of each life so 2 yrs from now I'm sure my blend will have grown LOL Bottomline though, my path is geared by me for me and has saved my life, given me strength, helped me help others and so on...I wouldnt have it any other way :D

I am a proud Pagan. I have gone to the christian church and it never made sence to me. I dont like a book telling me how to live my life. Especially a book as old as the bible. I like the ability to walk my own path or the path less traveled. I like NOT knowing what is arround the next corner.

Christianity. Personal experiences that not many people will understand. I do not enjoy going to church because of the way most "proclaimed" christians are, and I understand the stigma around us. But, regardless of the other people here on earth, my beliefs have nothing to do with anyone but myself and God.

   Life.. - the cosmos, milky way
One of the things I am is a christian astrologer. Go figure!- I'm also both protestant and catholic! With just a smidgen of new age.. But the two most basic components, is nature and contemplation. - I'm also a tarot reader, tho I took out nine negative cards!
