Unknown right now. I believe there is a higher being, who can be called god, but I am not a part of any organized religion nor am I even baptised. I am interested to read the bible though and I have been wondering about Jesus and the validity of organized religion... But I don't have a personal say on the matter as of yet.
No specific say. I respect others religions.
My dad was a Trappist Monk (Kentucky and S.Carolina) so I was baptised Catholic (as a baby). My mom was Lutheran and my oldest brother was baptised Lutheran . As for dad he went to church when we were little we all went but he stopped going to chuch as there was a (probably jealous) priest at the local church that turned him off from going. It was something I remember as suddenly we left and I think it was even in the middle of a service- maybe the priest brought up something like when you go into the monestary ? IDK I was really little yet some people might think we weren't supposed to be born anyways as dad was for 20yrs a Trappist yet he had feelings about having a family he had not yet met my mom but his brothers (biological brothers not Trappist monk brothers) already had families. He brought up his feelings to the Abbott who let him out.
He raised us with a respect for God regardless. I went to varoius sunday schools churches (by my own doing not being brought there)as a child. Besides CCD at the Catholic Church, I went to Baptist camps. I even was involved (when my oldest was little with what now seams to be somewhat of a cult where I did daily Bible studies and they had stars but I left them as I didn't like that they didn't offer sunday school for the kids and I felt that my daughter should also be involved . When my oldest was about 6 or so we were going to an Evangelical Free church on the Nside of Chicago. I had her Baptised and me re baptised as a Christian. I do explore other religions as I have read many Buddist books. I love reading Dali Llama books also Tao te Ching books (the te of Pooh the Tao of Piglet) and I have a wonderful Essential Wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita book. Also interesting is that my dad (he is now 86) was in the monestary with Thomas Merton who was known for trying to brige the gap between Eastern and Western Religions. (I think he said that he was a Hermit then).
Anyways thats a good question, as I am thinking of getting my little ones involved more with the local church where they went to preschool (my 5y old still there for preschool) its a Baptist church. I just don't want them or myself being unfairly judged yet I want them to have an education about Religion. (but not just 1 religion an open mind would be best!) Currently I am trying to get through the Info I got from ISAR on spiritual astrology its alot about aura the 7 rays. BTW my astrology class I took back in 2003 was held in a church-Unity church.
I'm not in the group (yet) but I am an Epicurean.
