  • Both

    Answer by popzaroo at 11:53 PM on May. 19, 2011

  • Definitely both. My faith (i.e. religion) is important enough to me that it intertwines with every aspect of my life. If it didn't, what would be the purpose of believing in it?

  • I don't like religion ... I prefer belief/faith/spirituality/way of life.

  • Depends what definition of religion is used, I suppose. I tend to be a little more inclusive in my definition of religion than most people are. In reality, what I consider 'my paths' are often translated from words that meant things like 'the way', 'the way things are', 'as it is', etc. The emphasis is definitely more on practice and coming to understanding through personal experience. APPLYING what you learn to your life once it's determined to be reasonable and good for all is more important than simply believing something to be true. I really consider it to be MORE than religion or philosophy in many ways, so I would definitely say it's a way of life.

  • It's a little of both, and it depends too. I see the world around me the way I do because I live through the vision my path of "religion" has taken me.
