Do you go to church, temple, or other place of worship daily/weekly/monthly? Do you follow religious traditions or celebrate religion-based holidays year-round and finally how do you use your religious beliefs in everyday life?

Lol some people think they are God and decide who is right or wrong.
There are sure to be a lot of interesting people there, if you ever do get struck by lightning, I mean. :) May He have a lot of other smiting to do before He ever gets around to you.
That's a nice deal then, just have him smite someone who really deserves it. There's plenty more who should be struck rather than not.
I think that people get distracted by organized religion sometimes and forget the importance of how to believe.not sayin you just in general
There's no right or wrong based on how often one practices religion as everyone's different. It's up to the person regardless and how they feel they should practice their faith.
That's how I am for my husband is an atheist and thinks scientifically,and I believe in God and we both respect each others Beliefs,and don't try to change. Them.
To Nichol I agree love is personal an example we can not force love on anyone, in a relationship love is agreeable between both, The Heavenly Father never forces anyone to love and accept him. But people force feed the thought. And turn people off
It's amazing to think not too long ago such thoughts would get you shunned by everyone. Nowadays there's nothing wrong with being scientific, and agree you can still be spiritual without being religious or following an organized religion.
Good points, we shouldn't be too bothered by what others do and they should our choices as well. It still seems that the majority of people believe in a higher power, but are they still good people if they ignore what's right--not likely.
That's very interesting. I wonder how a person's religious background may alter when they marry someone if at all.
I agree that some people are way to judgemental this lady I knew years ago asked me if I was Christian and I told her that I believed in God but did not have an established religion, she treated me like I worshipped the devil.
Nichol....People like that woman are the ones with the problem....not you. Sounds like she may have been very familiar with the devil, to think she recognizes his followers!...That is the sort of bad "attitude" that gives Christians a bad name.
I agree with your points and I too have found myself departing from an organized faith the older I become. I grew up Catholic too and followed religious guidelines very strictly. However I'm following a moral compass now and will await judgement.
You can't go wrong with just trying to be a good person. I've come into contact with very religious folk who do not practice what they preach, which is unfortunate and not what religion is supposed to be about. Agree about not judging someone.
I think that is great for doing that stuff because you like to and don't believe that it is some thing you have to do.
If belief is strong and that's what you abide by then great. I feel what people want to do is most important. I don't want anyone to be forced into a sense of religious belief if they don't follow through.
