  • Jesus is the only way to a happy afterlife. God created all. Jesus died for our sins... its symbolic. Baptism saves, its a huge deal-immersion, death of old self, birth of new. Good works aren't enough to save you. There is only one God. LIve according to HIS will, not YOUR will. Just because it feels good doesn't make it right. Don't kill, steal, commit adultery, covet, lust, etc. Honor mom and dad. Homosexuality is a sin. As is incest. Sex before marriage, beastiality, gossip, lying, etc. Blaspheme is unforgivable. You only have one life and that is your chance to know and love God. Love your neighbor as yourself. Hold your fellow Christians accountable. Encourage your fellow Christians. God loves you. Ask for Him and He will be there. Prayer is powerful. Worship God. Pray to Him. Praise Him. Ask Him for help. Trust Him--He will take care of you. :)

  • Be a good person without being a doormate, do onto others without damaging your own life and you will be rewarded by being able to see your dead family and friends in heaven.

  • Life - live it to it's fullest and enjoy it while you can.


    Death - the end, nothing more.


    God and beyond - there is nothing beyond death and there is no god.

  • No god, no heaven, no hell, no mystical being in the sky telling me the way to live my life.
    Birth is not a miracle, it's the result of two people having sex and making a baby. All that happens when you die is your body stops working, then you're either burned or buried, there is no "beyond".
    The last time you'll see anyone who dies is in the casket at the funeral.

  • We are here to love one another; to embrace all of our differences and celebrate them. We are to find within ourselves the part of us that is full of love and light, so that darkness can be gone forever. We can only achieve this through compassion and love in one another. When we do for our others with love in our hearts, we achieve our ultimate level of compassion and light. We do not need a God to dictate this to us....it is already within us. In death we return to the earth, from which we came. "We are star stuff"-literally. We are comprised of the same stuff the stars are made up of....we ARE the universe, the moon, the sun, the stars....we are all One. What we do to others, we do to ourselves.

  • Open mind and heart. Connection to the universe and all living things. All in balance or strives to be. Reincarnation, learning and growing.
    Energy and intent are important in all things we do. Magick is all around us. Helping our fellow man is important.
    Understanding that its important to listen to your inner divine and realize that everyone is different. Realizing you may be wrong but thats ok. Being true to yourself is important.
