    Why is your religion the right one?

    I've asked questions like this before- again, I don't want bible verses or anything. Why do you think your religion is ideal? Do you think everyone should adopt it? Why? What do your basic beliefs consist of?

    You asked an excellent question! One I have asked people in the past few years. I don't believe in organized religion. I don't claim what I believe is "the right religion or belief system".

    My beliefs include: respect life and nature. Violence has only one purpose, self-defense. Emotions like hate and revenge are a part of it. They should be used to push yourself harder and farther in life and as a person. "Evil can be used for good and good for evil." Life and the universe are a balance between opposing forces, constantly at war but needing each other to survive. I believe in a higher power, not one "god or goddess".

    I do not believe that everyone should adopt what I believe. What works for me, might not work for someone else. I have formed these beliefs over 41 years. They have helped me through the worst times in my life.

    I hope this answered your questions, even though it may be in contradiction.

    I am a Christian, and do not consider myself to be "religious." He first loved me, so now am I am able to love others.  To be like Christ, is to be the hands and feet of Jesus, loving others, caring for others, being kind to others, having compassion for others, praying for others, and understanding their pain and not judging, as we have all fallen short.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    I just love Jesus. If I love everyone and let His light shine through me, If I can just be His mouthpiece, and if i can tell them about His grace and mercy that was shed on the cross for all. Thats my religion. Its only for the ones who want it, but open to all.

    My religion (or lack of it) is the right one for me. I don't think that everyone can be agnostic/atheist, because most people need that one thing that they can have faith in. I get that, and wish I could have that faith. I do not, however, see any point in treating someone badly because they believe differently than I do. Your life is yours, and I expect that same respect in return.

    I just try to live my life by doing what's right for me and for the people I care about. Though I am a non-believing heathen, the Ten Commandments are a good place to start. Just because I don't believe doesn't mean that I can't appreciate wisdom when I hear it.

    I. serve a God of love and peace. a living Savior. A God of second chance. The God I serve said come unto me. He is about the bisness of giving peace, love, and comfort.

    My religion isn't the right one. Even for me, my religion grows deeper and richer every day. I am a Zen practitioner, Buddhist minister, and Christian teacher in the tradition of A Course in Miracles. I am a person, and I have seven billion brothers and sisters walking the Way (the Torah, the Truth, the Tao, the Word) with me, whether they know it or not.

    I don't have a religion.  I am a Christian.  Period.  I don't like to be referred to as "religious"...even though I walked that path years ago. 

    I had a relationship with religion rather than with Jesus Christ...made ALOT of mistakes, worked SO HARD for my salvation!  Made a fool of myself.  Now I just let His Light shine through me instead of doing, doing, doing.  I give God the blank page of each new day and I ask Him to guide me intuitively moment by moment. 

    Blessings, Sparklea smile
