Figured all these people are posting about how they think god exists and blah, blah, blah.......so I thought I'd create my own topic.
I do not believe nor will I ever.  You can preach and testimony all you want, I grew up a Catholic, and was one until about two years ago.  I have researched, studied, and believed until that point.  I know alllll about being a christian, faith, god, etc.
Personally, I don't believe anyone should rub it into anyone's face that they are goin to hell for not believing...
That they are wrong for not believing...
That the person preaching is better than the non-believers or feels sorry for the non-believers because they don't believe...

Everyone is equal.  We need to respect ourselves, respect our fellow man, and respect our earth before we give respect to some statue who we 'think' died on a piece of wood.  Doesn't the bible tell you not to worship man-made idols?  Well, were you there at the time of christ?  Isn't the bible a tool of a man-made idol IE the cross?  Isn't the figure of your christ on a cross in churches an idol?  Furthermore, how do christians believe so differently amongst themselves...IE..Baptists, Catholics, Etc....... They all condemn each other because they all interpret the bible differently.  It's all very silly to me.  I believe in equality, I belive in peace and justice and love.  I don't believe there is some evil(my definition) person waiting for me at some pearly gates telling me that I lived badly so he can send me to hell.  Too many evil doers, injustices, and just plain nastyness in this would to suggest to me that someone is watching over us. 
This just goes to show how all of us need to relax and hear everyone else's voice once in awhile!

When I first saw this topic, I was thinking I'm not even going to read it, because it'll probably just make me mad. Oddly enough, I feel just the opposite! I also grew up Catholic and even attended a Catholic school for awhile. I now consider myself a Christian. I do believe in God, but I don't believe everything that comes along with any set religion. (Attack away if you feel you must, my serenity is not in danger.) Moving on... I enjoyed the overall idea that Kymberli expressed: we are all equal. If we are both shot for what our beliefs are, I can (almost) guarantee that we will both bleed blood. (I say "almost" because of the technology they're coming out with these days. Plus, you could be an alien. Crap, I could be an alien!)  Good post and thank you for being brave enough to post it! :thumbsup:

I believe in myself and hold no one higher!
I need no one/no thing to believe in to make me a better person!
The only ONE that can make an impact in my life is ME!

As I have stated I don't look down on those that belief in whatever. We are all free to do whatever we want.
One thing I do hate is those that push their religion or beliefs onto you or think they are better then you.

YES, and for everyone reading this, there is a difference between stating your beliefs in a discussion and telling everyone they're going to hell for not believing what you believe.

That is always my first impression when people speak of God in that manner, they were hurt in life.

I think people who say non-fairytale subscribers are "sad" or the like are just jealous of the freedom, intelligence, and boldness we have.   ;D

We all  have a choice in what we believe or who we serve. There is a God. Heaven and Hell is real as well as Angles and Demons. There is only one God and  one way. I am not knocking anyones religion. We have a choice who we serve. We just need to make sure we make the right selection. I know who wakes me up in the morning, who protects me, when i was sick who was there, when i went to court who was there. You get no other response if you call on someone else but just call on the name of Jesus. See for your self. It is a personal experience.

Always trust people with grammatical capabilities such as this!  They obviously know what they're talking about.   ::)

Awesome!  I've made my choice and it is very clear that God is real.  Ever see a hummingbird?  Now that is creative.  And the same God that made a variety of hummingbirds, made you.  Deep down you know that is true.  So believe that Jesus is real and accept the free gift He is offering.  Eternal life.

14+ posts in a row from Marie just now. Psychotic! I bet they'll be deleted before you read this though.

 :angel12:Ill say sorry ahead of time incase i may offend someone But i honestly i cant give u a straight answer on the hole "God" debate,that has to be as old as the chicken and the egg.lol.
      But to give u my opinion i would have to say that i do think that there is something "out there" that is higher in the plain of existence than we are.Although i dont think it is at all what the preachers and leaders of faith would know about.I would hope that if there is something cosmic in existence i would "pray to god"lol,it doesnt want to be worshiped.On top of that i dont put any belief into the bible at all,sorry followers. :bs:

It's good to have knowledge about God. That knowledge may one day lead an unbeliever to saving faith so that they will not be lost forever in hell.
