Whats your religion?
5 Sep 06
Me Hindu. I respect all religion. We should take religion just like other criteria of division like if somebody asks which place or which state you belong, which country you belong and when we give answer to these question we are never against people of other state or country. When we go to different places, countries, enjoy there, enjoy among people of those places. So religion also should be taken in similar way.

I was raised in Catholic religion, and although I do not refute it, religion separates and causes the conflicts we see today and have always seen. I believe there is only ONE GOD and we are all connected regardless of religion. A great book to read which I am currently reading, is "Conversations with GOD" I have always felt the yearning for the truth, and wished to be more connected with GOD but was unable because i was unwilling to deprive myslef of things I enjoy and for fear of the aspects of my life which are termed by creators of religion as sin. Now I now the truth. I am GOD and so are we all. God expericense himself through of being and our creation of ourselfs in the choices we make. What cna i say but READ THIS BOOK!

I always described myself as spiritualist, then I did an online test which said I was neo-pagan (which I´d never heard of before but my beliefs matched everything on there) so the two are very similar I think. I am comfortable with my beliefs yet I respect others for their beliefs. I think people are WRONG to criticise others´ own beliefs.

I am muslim, and we dont read the bible, however, we read the Qura'an. as far as organized religion goes, i never understand that saying (even b4 i was muslim) its not like an oxymoron, like organized confusion, or original copy, its kind of redundant english speaking wise. i find it interesting when one says that they dont have a religion...and when i say interesting i dont mean in a sarcastic, cynical way either, i mean really truly intersting...

I don't have a religion, I am non-denominational, we just serve God, and the Bible we use is the King James Version. God doesn't recognize religions, we are all of His children. Religions are of man-related, God goes by many different names,just as the Tower of Babel, the people spoke many languages.

I once heard a wise man say "Religion is the worst thing that can happen to anyone". I for one agree. Now a "genuine relationship" of a spiritual sorts...well that's a horse of a different color. There seems to be a "mantra" of some sorts in our culture about how not to think inside the box, but rather to think outside of the box. I say that to say how the pattern of religious intolerance is always indicative of thinking "inside the box". And I believe the true divine calling of all individuals is to do just the opposite and think "outside of the box". Finite thinking "inside the box" can and never will be able to create and all inclusive formula of sorts to limit what is ultimately unlimited or put another way, "outside the box". The realm of "absolutes" do not take place in the realm of finite thinking, but only in the realm of infinite thinking. In other words, the "source of all sources" is not confined in a world of subjectivity or relativity (inside the box), but in a world of transcended objectivity of absolutes (total truth)or outside the box, so to speak. It is this, so-called image of God that is projected to all who live and breath these transcending thoughts of infinite thinking into their lives. No one in this phase of existence can actually say that they have a corner on the truth, unless of course they're finite thinkers. Why get stuck treading in a small shallow pond, when you have been given an ocean of infinite exploration to swim in. I have always believed in a source of divine intelligence, but never in the kind that says "believe or else". That to me is the small shallow pond and a bent towards thinking inside the box. If I have to label myself as to what kind of persuasion of infinite thinking I belong to? I would have to say I am a Christian Universalist. But not of the excluvism type of mentality that pervades so many christian circles (finite thinkers). That simply means, that if you don't agree with me, you won't have to look over your shoulder for the boogie man to come and get you. "Live and let live" is what us infinite thinkers believe. Yes, I'll repeat it again. Religion is the worst thing that can happen to anyone, but an on-going relationship with the source of all sources has made me realize this. We are all released from the same source, thus all connected. Thus, we will all return connected, everyone in their own time...to this very same source. Whether you think inside or outside the box, it will have no bearing...in your return...to the source. What a great design to ensure there is no "respector of persons". But a perfect plan to project, what the image of God is all about. :)

I was baptised church of england but follow no particular religion.I try to learn as much about others beliefs to enlighten as well as understand and respect anothers chosen way of life. I believe if we understand and try to respect eachother then we are on the path to God.

I prefer not to have one, yet I can see many of the truths that lie (sometimes hidden) within conventional religions. Christians would call me an heretic or perhaps even an agent of Satan.But inspite of being unencumbered by religion I still consider myself 2 b deeply spiritual.

i was born into a hindu family and educated in christian institutions. despite the attractions, over a period of time and observation of my parents, i grew to love my religion. as i studied it, i learnt about its beauty and its openness. hinduism does not wish anyone ill, it spreads its love and wellbeing to all, even followers of other religions based on the percept that all mankind is trying toreach the Superior Power, perhaps using different paths; therefore it allows everyone to select the path that they wishto take, so long as they do good and are good. everything else, prayer, ritual, lessons, books hymns etc are secondary, solong as the heart is pure and does not force anyone else to forcibly change the course that is dear to them
