What is your religion and what does it stand for?


This isnt a debate thread just general knowledge please!

I do not really 'have' a belief - I dont know why?

But..

I am very interested to know what others believe in and why? and how it makes you feel...maybe then I might feel I have a direction to choose from

So...

Whats your religion and what does it stand for?

I am a Christian, by that I mean I believe in God, Jesus & I try to follow the Bible. Me & hubby read a part of the Bible each day at breakfast & discuss it & then try to apply it to our lives.

Thats really nice! Sounds quite intimate and obviously something you both share a passion for!

Hopeandprey > Do you have like a 'god' or are there certain rules as such? I'd like to know a little more please

Im another Christian,
I believe in God the Father and Creator of all things, Jesus his son and our Saviour and the Holy spirt sent by God to guide and comfort us,
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 am a bit of everything. I don't believe in one god or creator but i like the values of many religions.

I would probably refer to myself as buddhist if pushed and am on a quest to truly 'see' and eliminate dukkha from my life!

I am a latter-day saint or mormon as its more commonly know, essentially i am a christian. I beleive in God, Jesus and the holy ghost.

I beleive i am a daughter of a loving and kind heavenly father and i lived (as did everyone) with him before coming to earth, the plan is to prove myself and get an body (before i beleive we just had a spirit).

I go to church, read from the bible, and have standards or morals i live by.

people have strange ideas about my releigion, but the men DONT have more than one wife, and we DO have electricity etc lol

I wouldn't say religion as such but I am spiritual. I also dabble in other things such as wicca, Buddhism etc just whatever suits me and live my life how I feel comfortable.

I'm Jewish. I believe in G-d - and that there is only one god - and that people are essentially good. We believe that the good will be rewarded for their deeds, and the wicked will be punished. We believe the mashiach (messiah) will come (and hence, has not already been) and will rid the world of all evil. We believe Moses and the prophets words are true, and that the dead will be resurrected.

I don't practice anymore - I am Jewish by birth - but I still believe in my religion.

I'm a Christian - I'm a Children and Families Worker for the Methodist Church so religion and faith takes up a large part of my life - I would classify myself as a Liberal Christian!
