So many folks find something or label that separates them from others. I think that is a problem. I am a crazy Christian dude but I find things in common with an Egyptian Muslim of a Vietnamese Buddhist. Of course I do with a Finish sun worshiper and a Shinto priest.
Some in my """ religion""" say I am a bad man for loving my neigbor and my enemy. And worse they say I am heretic for believing I am a brother with an atheist.
I am as my great teacher taught me. Accepting of all, speaker of my beliefs, lover of all beliefs and friend to those without one. I hiked a great Mexican Volcano outside of Puebla just next to a town Cholulla. About 60 miles north of Mexico City. But I hiked it barefoot with Tibetan monks and we hiked through snow and up to the crest. I think about 13,000 ft. We stared into the molten happenings snorted the sulfer and got the hell out there.
My history presents no direct -- who I am. And the very damned best I can come up with is "lover of life".
Think about it for a second. Who are you.
I do reckon when all boils down I am a simple man named dad abd husband and son. What say you
Much the same really, although I haven't climbed many volcanoes, at least literal ones.
If I suffer from a major fault, it is that I am very judgemental. I have to constantly remind myself, that none of us can really take the moral high ground. We all have our faults. Usually, about ten minutes after I have reminded myself of that fact, I'm noting the "mote" in everyone elses eye, while cheerfully forgetting about the humungous "beams" in my own.
I am a person who love life. Passionate about poetry and writing. Love the fact that I've met my soulmate. Love our adopted cat Sid. Feel like everyday I can find some joy and sing and dance. Get lots of inspiration from my favorite music. Always struggling to make ends meet but life goes on. Have faith and I let the Lord guide me each day. More or less that's who I am.
...Finnish sun worshipper?
Last I checked, no one worships the sun and everyone in Finland is either a Lutheran or an Atheist.
I am a whosoever.
Jesus died for whosoever would believe in Him, to give us everlasting life someday with Him.

Do you believe in the Summerland or something similar such as Tir Na Nog or Heaven, etc.? Do you also believe in reincarnation or a recycling of energy? What do you, as a Pagan, believe in as far as life after death?...

My beliefs are personal and individual to me. However, I was thinking, if I was not to have my belief system, how would I feel? I can tell you, I feel utter terror. Comments?

This topic is old, I know, but I'd like to ask it anyway. Many Christians will ask an atheist, "Why are you here if you don't believe God (should it be a Christian thread)?" Some will answer,...

A common religion debate is that religious people try to shove their beliefs down every ones' throats, which is unwanted, closed-minded, and hypocritical. Yet the most common closed-minded belief shoving type of...
