Is there a Label?

I grew up in a very christian enviroment, sunday school every week, youth groups, weds bible studies, nightly devotions and all that jazz. But I grew up :P And for the past years have been trying to determine what I do and dont believe in :P And what it comes down to is, I dont believe in that book and all the emphasis ppl put on it :P I believe in God and a higher calling and fate. I havent decided if I believe in a after life though.. I guess my question is, is there a label for that belief?

  • You are probably a theist. These are people who believe that there is a higher power but they don't have a name for it or do not presume to put a name on it, as religions do. As a witch I call it the godforce, the universal mind, or the divine energy. It is my belief in the Force and the supernatural which makes me a spiritual atheist rather than a skeptical one. It is not a cognizant entity, but an energy which we mold and use to direct our lives.

  • You might look into Baha'i or Uniterian religions and see what you think of those.

  • I'd have to know more than that, I think, to narrow it down, as there are many paths that could potentially fit....
