Do you believe in God or a higher power but not religion?

I believe there may be a God or higher power but am so very against Religion... it seems to tear people apart and all religions that i have heard about turn against all other religions...i thought the point was to love God not hate everyone for believing in different ways

  • Yes I believe in God, but I believe in the devil too and I think the devil created religion to divide us so we kill one another. That's what I think. I mean, name me one good thing religion has contributed to? Name an era in history where religion created peace. It never has and never will. People will constantly argue about it, go to war over it and die believing in it. I think it's the work of the devil. Religion divides people, God unites people.

  • I am against religion, after all they are man made right? I have always had a personal relationship with God and it has served me well.

  • Im a Christian and I believe we should respect others regaurdless of their religion. I believe people tear people apart not religion. There are those that cannot accept it for whatever reason so they talk bad about that person, religion ext. Just like rose who cannot accept gays. I think whatever you do is your decision as long its not hurting anyone else.

  • Well first off it is hard to not beleive in religion since it very obviously does exist but you can easily not agree with it. I personally am a pantheist and while I never had a horrible experience with the church, after minoring in religious studies at college I learned way too much about religions in general and really grew to dislike organized religion. Personally I feel that all relgions with a higher power in it (be it christian, pagan , etc.) are worshipping the same thing just in different ways.

  • Well religion clearly exists so of course I accept that fact, whether I agree with it or follow it, NO I don't but I don't believe in God either.

  • I believe in God and Goddess. but I would say I'm more spiritual than religious. I dont really care for organized religion all that much. and I completly agree with what Aeneva said about all relgions with a higher power in it are worshipping the same exact thing just in many different ways(and different names. I believe that all Gods are one God and all Goddesses one Godess).
