Im mixed race so do not follow any particular religion. I dont know if there is a god. All i know is that I should live my life as a decent person and help others when I can and be the best that I can be. Any god should be happy with that and if there is a god that isn't then they are not worth believing in. I dont think it matters what you believe as long as you live your life in a peacful way which is free from discrimination and hate. I like the way religion gives people guidance but as most Gods that people believe in are forgiving than surely they would forgive a person for not knowing which religion to follow. Thats my theory anyway

I like the way that most religions believe in only one true god. MAybe all those religions are right there IS only one true god. And each religion is actually believing in the same god..so therefore it doesnt matter what you call god or which one you follow coz in the end its the same god and the same religion just with a different name (catholic,muslim,sikh etc) All believe in the one true god. Its people that separate the religions..my religion is right yours is wrong etc etc. Everyones is right i think.

Im happy to answer any questions anyone has about my faith and belief so if you have any please do ask..

My faith is so important to me, some days i couldnt get through without knowing that my Creator has a greater purpose for me and many blessings and gifts to share with me, I only have to look at my children to know that my God loves me as there is no way that I would have them if it werent for God or indeed be alive myself right now.

I'm a Spiritualist, and attend an SNU (Spiritualist National Union) church....

We have no holy books or rules to live by, just 7 principles which we must accept before we can really call ourselves a spiritualist:

1. The Fatherhood of God.
2. The Brotherhood of Man.
3. The Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels.
4. The Continuous Existence of the human soul.
5. Personal Responsibility.
6. Compensation and Retribution hereafter for all the good and evil deeds done on earth.
7. Eternal Progress open to every human soul.

You can explore more on www.snu.org.uk, or I am happy to answer questions too, as best I can. Essentially we believe that all human beings are first and foremost spirits, and that the body is a tool, or shell used to enable us to learn on the earthplane. As spirit, we are all part of the Great Spirit (God) and can communicate with other spirits who are discarnate (not in a body, ie, 'dead').

We communicate with spirits who want to talk to us to prove that there is no death, and to encourage us to use this insight to live better lives, with more love and care for others. It's not for entertainment (though it can be entertaining!) and it's not to scare people - it's about showing the interconnectedness of the world and all spirit.

We have a philosophy but no rules, as I say, so we are very independently minded and don't try to persuade others to our point of view. We believe the evidence speaks for itself!

I was raised Catholic but I don't have a Catholic view.

I believe in people - in doing my best while on earth and striving to improve all aspects of all life.

I know theres "something" beyond our knowledge, but that all people are good and evil in equal meassure and its up to us how we live and what path we follow.

I live each day as a new beginning and try to do my best with each one and not hurt anyone, physically or mentally.

I am also fascinated with religion as a whole and did my degree in religion and am also a qualified religious studies teacher

I love this thread! I am also fascinated by different religions.

Personally, I'm a Bible-Believing Christian. Don't really have a "religion" - we're struggling with our church and haven't found another one in our rural area that we are satisfied with.
I believe God created the earth, sent Jesus to teach us and be our Saviour. He died on the cross to atone for our sins and the Holy Spirit lives in us every day.

I pray a lot - throughout the day, I thank, praise and ask. I could definitel do it more! We say the Benediction from Numbers 9 for our DS every night and say prayers together before bed.

We attend a weekly Bible Study where we read the bible, discuss the passage and like Caz said, apply it to our lives.

We are trying to do devotions at meal times and in the morning and evening, but it's kinda hard to organize our schedules. I love it when we do coordinate it!!

I wanted to press the "like" button for these posts...tee hee

I attend Church to Praise and worship God and follow the Bible's teaching as understood by me with the guiding of the holy spirit, I read the Bible and try to apply its teaching to my life and pray daily either by myself or with my husband and we pray blessings for our children and family everyday

I believe that God loves all of his children, regardless of whether you are Catholic or not. I believe in the forgiveness of sins. I believe in eternal life in heaven. I believe in peace.

I go to mass weekly. I should go to reconciliation (confession) more often, but truthfully I've not been since before Elyse's baptism, and before that, since high school. We receive sacraments, which are important to us.. baptism, reconciliation, holy communion, confirmation... marriage.. etc
Oh, Caz, I wanted to like yours too, but I must have missed quoting it!

[QUOTE=Tegans Mama;6710894]I'm Jewish. I believe in G-d - and that there is only one god - and that people are essentially good. /QUOTE]

^^^ This. I am a practicing Jew. Dh isn't Jewish but has the same basic beliefs and our children will be raised Jewish.

I guess I consider myself agnostic. I got tired of being in a certain category and sort of just took pieces from different beliefs and made it my own. I was Wiccan for 8 years then sort of one day stopped practicing so a lot of my believes derive from that.
