  • While it would be nice, no, I don't think that my path is the most appropriate for everyone else.

  • Nope. I know what I believe isn't what everyone needs, but it works for me. I don't even have the same beliefs as my husband, and we both accept that we will not change the other's mind. We don't even bother to try. I know some people need to believe in a higher power to help them get through the hard times. For me, it's easier to just say, "Life really sucks sometimes, I'll eventually get past this." Some people need more than that to keep hope for the future alive.

    By the way, I'm agnostic, but was raised Lutheran and am married to a non-denominational Christian.

  • Yes to the beliefs, because I believe it to be The Truth. Although I believe there are different paths to get there.

  • No. My beliefs are just that, mine. Everyone has to make their own path.

  • It's not my path, or my laws, or my commandments. It's not my church. It's God's. I think EVERYONE should make what God wants for us to do, to be happy, something that is priority in our lives. He knows the consequences to our choices, and although you still will have trials (they are to learn and to grow)...that by having a better attitude and keeping his commandments and keeping faith in Him, our struggles aren't as bad as they could be.

  • Nope.

    Some people would be axe murderers if they didn't think they would go to hell for killing someone. In that way, religion does its job of controlling people.
