So many people with religious drama, so much hatred and ignorance. I think a big cause of all of it is a lack of understanding, so lets try to understand each other a bit.

Please vote and bump. If you do comment, please make it friendly. No arguing plz!

I have no religion. Personally I don't care who does or if they do.

The only thing that bothers me is when someone expects me to automatically believe what they do, because they believe it.

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

Agnostic. Don't believe, but never said it is impossible for there to be a God..........I just like to have proof besides a book.

Other...

I'm Mormon, I don't necessarily go to church every Sunday (which means I have people stalking me all the time asking why we aren't in church), and I'm not necessarily "not practicing" because we still read scriptures and have our own discussions about them. BUT...your first choice, Christian, includes Mormons. Christian, by definition, means a believer in/follower of Jesus Christ. Mormons place HUGE importance on Christ and his teachings, and it is misleading to disclude us from the Christian category. (Our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, after all!) =]

I'm a Christian.  I have no particular demonination of Chrisitan either.  I keep my beliefs to myself unless asked.  So here is what I consider a Christian.  Someone who believes that Jesus Christ is their Savior.  I don't go to church because I think the majority of churches are corrupt because of man.  I also interpret the bible for myself and not have someone else do it for me.  Guess thats about it :P

Thank you lol that is how i feel but couldnt put it into words lol , i wouldnt mind finding a small church just to talk about what the bible means to me and what it means to others, but thats hard to do since most churchs think it all should be interpreted the same way, what a certain verse etc.. means to me might not mean the same to someone else KWIM....
