what is your view on...

Religion & Spirituality?

I believe that...

People who are religious are afraid to get to hell, & people who are spiritual have already been there.
I believe in a higher power to guide me but not a direct GOD.
GOD to me is Good Orderly Direction.
I dont believe that there is a set of rules we need to follow in order to get into heaven.
I believe in doing the right things for the right reasons, and as humans we all fall short.
I believe that no matter what we are provided for as long as you have faith in whatever your higher power is...

For me, My higher power is my mom who passed away to cancer last year. She is my rock & these are my beliefs.

  • I believe in God, I'm a baptist Christian. I do not believe in pushing someone into believing what I believe in. I do not judge. I stand up for people who are judged by Christians because I do not believe that it is our place to judge anyone and it should be left up to God.

    I think that if what you believe brings you comfort and hope and it gets you through the day then there is nothing wrong with that. I mean none of us honestly know what exactly happens after we die, and we won't until we die...I have my faith that what I believe is right, for me, but who am I to say that all of us aren't right...there is just no way of really truely knowing, all it comes down to is faith that we did what was right.

  • I wish you hadn't gone anonymous, I don't see any reason anyone would bash you for a belief such as this.

  • I think it is a very sweet way to connect with your beliefs.

    I'm not a believer of a higher power.. but I believe we have the power to do a lot of things in life, if you put your mind into it. I went through so much growing up, and I took what happened to me and used it to make me stronger, used it to learn from, etc.
