How am I supposed to understand religion, I'm still a child and know if you know and think something is true you have to believe.

I was taught to believe Jesus Christ as the Son of God, Also to me Christianity seems to be the only religion that has a real documentary, The Holy Bible.

To believe in something you have to believe it yourself.

But how am I supposed to believe, when there is war, other faiths, people who do sin and tempt you to sin too, and also so many influences in the world that make you forget all source of religion.

I want to believe in a religion, my cousin was raised catholic and she was looking for something more in life. She now believes in Christianity and  Wicca, (people say wiccan's are witches because they believe in a more natural and nature faith). Finding out about her views in religion hurt me, seeing people say she will go to hell hurts as she is someone close to me.

Why can't all religions get along, why is there so much hate and sin in the world.

Religion is pumping in my head and it hurts and is confusing.


If I was to have one wish in the world, My wish would be to destroy and erase all life and civilization on the earth, so that a new and pure world could take it's place.
I had half a mind to disable comments because I didn't want to deal with over religious people, but I changed my mind because I wanted to see your view's on other/all Religions

sigh.

If the only real documentary that you have is the bible, wouldn't that make comic books say that Spider Man is a real person as much as god?

Nope.


In that case, Spiderman is real.
You can't say he isn't because there are books out about him fighting crime and being of existence.

You say that the only proof that God is real is the Bible.
A bible is a book, just like a comic book which state the existence of both God and Spiderman.



If you say that Spiderman isn't real, than you're telling me that God isn't real neither.

Other religions have documentary. The Qu'ran, for one, is just as long as the 'Holy Bible' and contains a lot of the same stories, people, teachings. If God is as all-forgiving as is claimed, then if you just enjoy your life now, and come when he supposedly 'calls' you, then I'm sure it will be all fine.

But I ask this... if God is all-powerful AND all-loving, then he hates war and wants to stop it, AND he WOULD do something about it. Yet... everywhere we look, we see suffering.

Also, knowing and believing are two very different things. I KNOW for one that I'm not the worst person alive, I'm not the dumbest person or the ugliest person, and yet... for the most part, I NEVER believe what I know.

Religion and belief are also two different things. I promise you, all people within a religious group seem to think they all believe the same thing, but no two people share the exact same beliefs. Don't let others try and influence you. As a Christian, the bible says that you may talk to God only through yourself. That means, ANYONE and I mean ANYONE trying to tell you what to believe, what God is trying to say to you, is WRONG.

When the time is right, and if God DOES exist, then He will talk to YOU through YOU. He won't tell your pastor to talk to you. He won't tell your mother, father, brother, cousins. He will talk to you and you alone.

The problem with wars etc. is that they're the result of sin.. people pretending to be religious and using it as a front to gain power or hurt/kill people for example, or just for the 'pleasure' of killing. The only way to completely stop things like that other than everyone in the world being really and truly religious and/or dedicated to peace, is to restrict free will. And I'm sure that easier as it might make some things, very few people would be happy about their free will being taken away. :(

God does sometimes act through others, but you do need to be careful because yes, there are people who will tell you things that God has supposedly told them to do or say when in fact He didn't. I think usually God will confirm it Himself if it's true, but you need to learn how to hear Him and tell the difference between His words and your own thoughts or the words of others.

Very true. Sadly we have wars over witch religion is most peaceful. It makes no since. War to show how peaceful you are? Really?

I was raise to me a Christian. But I stopped believing that about 5 years ago. I can't believe in god because why would he put so many kids threw a living hell?

I now mostly believe in the Native American Spirits. They can't stop things like that. They help the earth grow. Besides I'm mostly Native American anyways.

Religion and Money are the source of evil as my dad always said. Hes the Religion of him. He made up his own. People fight over both and kill for both.

Just like the gays used to be fine with the Christians but now they are not.

People think they can speak for god and say what they think he would say. Even if its not what he would say. When they say your going to hell for something like your gay, or you changed your beliefs. Thats just low.

I know how your Cousin feels. My mother and Aunt have said the same too me. That I was going to hell because I did not believe anymore. But really its your life and your choice. If God is a careing person like they say in the Bible he should understand why you choice to believe in something else. Not hate his child for doing so. He should understand that there are so many other beliefs out there and you can't tell witch is the true one. So you may go to another one.

No Problem

And another thing. Who is to say that any of these religions are true. For all we know the Truth has yet to become a religion. Everyone thinks their beliefs are true. But half of the people who say that don't even follow their own religion well at all. And whos to say that their all fairy tails and the real one has yet to be discovered.

I mean when 99% of the religions were coming. All anyone had to do is walk out of their house and yell. "God Spoke to me!" And everyone believed them. Say that now and your insane.

Don't get me wrong I respect Religions as long as they stop saying stuiped shit like "God Hates Gays" Or "God hates Retards"

But everyone has the right to believe what they want. You can't force someone to believe in what you believe. Not your parents, friends or family. Its how you see the world. If they don't like it, to bad, its your life and your soul.

I know if I ever had a child. I would have them learn all the Religions. And let them choice what they want to believe in.

u must realise that there are many different ppl in this world.they think that god doesn't exist and they think that there is no Hell or Heaven.Everyone has good and bad in them.some ppl are blind to commit sins.this is exam that god takes to see if we are good or bad.If the world was pure then ppl won't commit sins but what would be the point to test faith then?this life is a test to see if we do follow the right path.also god has given us free will,it's only angels who don't have a free will.

The problem is that all Christians are humans and all humans are flawed. Christians aren't -better- people, they're just -forgiven- people. They're going to make mistakes, and there are always going to be people in all parts of the world and in all walks of life who will claim to believe in and belong to a certain religion or group because they think it's expected since they were raised in it, or because they think it will make them look better or be above suspicion and for a multitude of other reasons and they might never completely get the point of it all, or really truly accept any of it for themselves. And even those that do are still going to be tempted and make mistakes occasionally. That's just how the human race is.

There will always be temptation. Being tempted doesn't make you a bad person. It's how hard you try to overcome it and repentance for the occasions when you do fall off the wagon that counts. No regular human being will ever be able to overcome it alone or remain completely perfect. All you have to do is believe that Jesus died for you, accept the gift and pray for strength and it will come. Sin, wars etc. don't come from God. They're the result of human rebellion and the attempts of the fallen to drag as many down with them as they can. Please don't let the mistakes of others hold you back.

I don't folow any religion.But I AM NOT ATHEIST eather.I am confused by this subject too.I was forced to belive in a Jesus and God in my school,and I do belive in God in MY WAY.You don't need church,the pope or the Bible to belive in God.You just be ''good'' don't do anything to hurt others,just live,God will accept you...os I have this theory about good and evil : Sometimes i really hate people.On the other side there is no way out,no escape from them.And at the end I am human too.I can't change that.It's hard to get a real friend like this,pretending i'm ''normal'' how would I find a friend if I stop pretending and show my real side?They would probablly try to lock me away,in mental house or somewhere.We all wear masks,invisible ones.We hide our true identity.Evil and good sides are relative in us.It's on us to ''pick a side''.But there is no ''picking side''.We are all sometimes good and sometimes evil.There is no person that is all evil or all good.We sometimes need to be evil and sometimes we need to be good.What matters is what we are most of the time,when we are alone,with only our minds and us.Than there is no masks.What for?We know our real face to well.Yet we try to hide even from ourselfs.Trying to be something we will never be.Trying,and trying...it's almost sad what we are ready to do for others to accept us...It's crazy,really.But we are all crazy in our way... There is no ''normal''.We all just ARE.

that's my answer to religion.MY own belives.In the christan religion they say pray: but what for?That's so selfish! I have nothing against praying to thank God...But he aleready knows that...I'm gonna put this in my journal :D

this is exactly what i wonder =__=

apparently if christians accept other religions, then they aren't a true christian...

as far as other religions, perhaps similar reasons. people should have the right to believe their own religion without being bashed on (including christians, some christians go through battery with atheists!)

i don't understand why we can't acknowledge others as seeing things differently without having to know the others as a terrible thing :iconsadplz:
