  • No, you don't. There are many people who believe in god and/or Jesus and aren't affliated with any specific religion. Faith is something you believe regardless of proven or nonproven facts. God/Jesus is just that .. faith. Religion is only the guidlines in which some people believe God/Jesus would've wanted you to live your life. However, a person doesn't have to believe in said religion in order to believe in God/Jesus.

  • I am a devout Christian but I don't believe you have to be religious to believe in Jesus. He was a man and all men have the right to believe in him. I think it could do people good to follow his morals and ways even if they don't believe he is their Saviour or believe in God.

  • Being in a "religion" and having a "personal relationship" with Jesus are 2 entirely different things :) so the answer is no!

  • NO YOU DO NOT. I AM RELIGIOUS IN MY OWN UNIQUE WAY AND I DO NOT CAST MY VIEWS ONTO ANYONE. I DON'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE TO BELONG TO A CERTAIN DENOMINATION TO KNOW THE LORD.

  • Good question. I'd say no you don't have to be religious to believe in Jesus, that he existed, whether that meant believing he is the Son of God or not. But, I'd say a BFP to having to be religious to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus.
