I'm religiously neutral. I don't believe in any abrahamic religions, though I respect those that practice.
I would consider myself a pagan... though it's hard to put any label on my beliefs... I believe in energy and karma... being a kind, tolerant, respectful person.
Im a mishmash. I mix n match because i feel that religions like a puzzle...every one has some truth..a piece of the puzzle...but i mostly follow a mix of native american religion combined with christianity.
I was raised christian, but I've usually considered myself an agnostic. This baby's dad is very religious so when we got together, I gave church a shot. It was a nice church and everything, very modern, but it's just not for me. I put a lot of stock in karma and tolerance, being a good person in general.
I guess I'm agnostic. I was catholic but I don't believe there is enough proof in religion to follow it. And who's to say one religion is more 'right' over the other? My fiance it's the same. We still do Christmas, etc., but that's the extent of it.
I was raised southern baptist but i'm not into organized religion.I don't label myself as anything. I just say everyone can believe what they want to but I don't feel the need to be a part of an organized church. I feel that most put too much focus on going to church and doing things their way than really just being a good person. I don't feel like anyone can say that their religion is "the" religion. We still celebrate Christmas and Easter but not in the religous sense but more for just being together as a family.
I don't believe everything in my church, but I go because of the tradition. My kids live seeing their grandparents every Sunday morning & the people are really nice there. . . Very inviting. When we lived away from family we rarely went to church because we didn't feel welcomed. I went to church with just my two boys because dh was out of town & my youngest was fussing before church had started so I didn't do much to calm him down. I figured he'd have a long time to be quiet later. A parishioner told me that I needed to take that baby to the cry room (I hate cry rooms because I think it teaches kids they can do whatever they want during church & then I get absolutely nothing out of going). Needless to say I didn't feel comfortable returning with my "unruly" child (who toke a bottle & slept the rest of the time).
I am not into "organized religion." I don't buy into the whole need to dress up and go to church and tithe 10% thing. My DH and I tried church for awhile because my stepdaughter wanted us to go with her and my in-laws. I felt like more emphasis was being placed on "looking the part" of being a Christian, rather than actually having faith. Not for me.
I have a wonderful personal relationship with God but I have issues with the church and have gone on and off my entire life. I dont care for some of the churches ideals and practices and I dont feel like I need a mediator between me and God. Still I have a strong faith and trust and reliance on God on a personal level.
