I noticed that although I hold a firm belief in God, my viewpoint seems to be a little different than many other Christians (this is merely a presumption). I often find that my viewpoint tends to stray more towards First Nations traditional beliefs; that all life is equal and interconnected and should be treated with respect. Sort of like the lifestream from FF7. Also, I seem to not take sides a lot in conflicts; rather I fight for the truth and for what's right, no matter which side it takes me to.

I occasionally pray and am a good person. I don't believe there's too much to do past that. Evidently, that's called deism but the less I try to label my beliefs the easier they become to define.
I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within.

Don't believe in a all powerful god.
I do believe in different gods, but don't worship any.
Think outside the box to change what's inside it.

I do not practice any religion, nor do I believe in the existence of any of the god(s)/goddess(es)/other divine or condemned entities of any of the religions I know of.

I was raised without religion present, and am an aspiring student of Hermeticism now, and I believe in God. I refuse to define God, though.  :wink:
I could not of described my theological orientation any better if i tried. Only i was raised with strict religion and heavy dogmas present.

I practice Spiritualism and hold the title of Spiritualist.

I don't have a religion, for I am an atheist.
BLASPHEMER!!!! GET THE PITCHFORKS!!!



lol, just kidding.


I guess my reaction to psionic feats was the confimation of the existence of a god for me. I used to be an atheist too. I was until at one point, i began to poltergeist in school, it was only a few occasions, but it was enough for me begin researching and learning about psi, practicing and eventually recreating the feats. At that point i knew there was more out there than merely myself and others, and so that, along with other personal exiriences, and contemplation is how i arrived at the conclusion of my belief in a creator existing. Granted, my proof is mine alone and i wouldnt expect you to believe in one. But i have respect and kudos for you in the fact that you are not satisfied with with blind acceptance and and spoon fed filtered dogmas with agendas, and take it upon yourself to find the evidence you need.

I used to believe in religion, but I dont anymore. I find it is better to believe in yourself and make use of practicality in everyday affairs. The higher source known as God is actually you, so when you realise that you just get on with life making something of yourself.

I believe in way too much and doubt the rest.
"Spirit is in a state of grace forever.
Your reality is only spirit.
Therefore you are in a state of grace forever."

"As relfections of the Source, we are little gods."

"...part of me doesn't want to believe that auto-eroticism while crushing on a doodle (sigil) could manifest a check in the mail box, but hey, it did."

"Everybody laughs the same language."

I am agnostic.

I don't believe in God or Gods as being a personal, communicable entity. I don't believe in ritual, and therefore I don't believe in religion. I don't believe in any specific afterlife, Hell or Heaven. I find it difficult to believe in spirits, having experienced no directly observable, objective phenomenon associated with them, in dreams or otherwise.

I believe in polarity and dualism, meditation, and the manifestation of God as being an impersonal life force. I believe in the duality of this life force and the manifestations it makes in a male and female form (Yin and Yang).

I take what is useful and discard the rest, and I believe all religions are different paths up the same mountain. Thus, I variously believe in the philosophies and teachings of Daoism, Buddhism, Shintoism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Jainism, and many others depending on what I find to be wise, practical, relevant and useful.

I generally simply tell people I am Daoist because it's easy, but the reality is that I believe all of them, and none of them, in various degrees. To do this takes what the Hindus call viveka, or discrimination, to separate oil from water- fact from fiction.

I was raised as an atheist and after much suffering I was brought to investigations which led me to research into eastern religions, then kabbalah and judaism to hermeticism and catholicism. I was looking for practical spiritual teachings but also a community containing believers of all walks of life and "advances".
