  • I have BELIEFS but I do not have a RELIGION.

    Belief is the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true.

    Religion is a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices agreed upon by a number of persons or sects.

  • I don't believe in religion.. I believe it leads to legalism(ex. you can't go to heaven if_____(other than not believing and accepting Jesus) and extremist(the crusades, 9-11, etc..)
    BUT at the same time I believe you can belong to groups of like minded people without turning into extremist. I belong to a church, but they are a community orientd group of people and are involved in the community trying to show God's love for EVERYONE
