Sometimes I get the feeling that I'd rather keep my belief of God quiet and then everything will remain peaceful.
Anytime I have been in a discussion about religion it turns into an arguement.
I have not read the bible inside out. I am not a priest or a preacher. I am an average human being, a sinner just like all the rest but my faith in God remains strong.
But there are so many out there that just don't have the faith anymore. I've been told I am brain washed. I have been told that my "god" is the boogey man. I have been told that my belief that Satan is real..he is a fallen Angel is just stupid.
So, I keep it to myself.
And I find that sad.
I miss the days when I could talk about God and it was not challenged. It was a good conversation, I variation of beliefs and what the bible means to each of us, as if it were written for each of us as individuals.
Are you embarressed to tell people you believe in God?

Yes there are lots of people who feel this way, but it can work both ways. I'm sure there are a lot of people who don't have a strong belief in God, but pretend to because they feel it's what others around them want. I think a lot has to do with an individuals personality, how private they are, how strong their desire to fit in is. Also it has a lot to do with where you live, and how strong the beliefs are in that area of the world you live in.
I have strong beliefs but I'm mostly private, I don't hide my religion or my beliefs but I don't bombard people with them either. I don't think you should be overly outwardly religious because it often feels like it's done more for show rather then sincerity.
