Does anyone else have no chosen religion that they live by?
I've never chosen a religion that I live by and I know I'm not alone but I just want to hear some other's opinions on the topic. Why do you choose not to stick to a religion? Do you believe in any or none?
I was raised christian by my mother. However, humans who study the religion often make me not like the religion. I believe religion should be something as serious as marriage. Being saved to me is like a wedding to marry jesus himself. So I plan to take my time finding the perfect home (church) for me to be with him. If I can't find a excepting, non judgmental, and uplifting faith within the christian community I will not be choosing.
As a child some 60+ years ago, I was watching a parade go by and I found it quite boring. It was not my parade and there was no point in watching or participating. By the age of 14 or 15 I was determined to have my own parade in life and I did.
I see life as a singular enterprise with great rewards, providing one embraces life as a positive and a journey worth taking. It is much like starting your own business and then relinquishing control. The business is no longer yours and with regard to marching in someone else parade, as in religion, your life is no longer yours.
At age 9, I left the church of my grandfather (he was a Southern Baptist minister). I studied Scientology, Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism and Kabbalah. Then I studied Christianity. Now, I consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian. But I hold that label loosely. The only True religion is Love -- not physical love, but altruistic, non-self-concerned love. This is what Christ and Buddha taught. This seems to be what Lao Tzu was getting at, too. Authentic Kabbalists (not a religion, but a spiritual science) also talk about this.
Religious dogma and ceremony are not in my life. I keep looking for Truth and still let go of old beliefs as I find them imperfect.
Too many in the established Religions have big egos. They don't look for Truth. They are comfortable in their self-righteousness. They are afraid to let go of current beliefs. For me, the hunger for Truth is too great to stay at any one point on the path.

Does anyone have any evidence for the existence of God?I am an atheist, which to me only means that I haven't been shown requisite evidence to convince me of an omnipotent, all-knowing deity of any kind. If you would, please bring forth this evidence and deliver me from a fiery...

I really cannot go into my religion in depth here. But I am very religious. I do not have a religion that you can put in a glass jar and monetize or scrutinize. But I am very religious.I believe in and practice a religion of love. No I am not perfect at love - only one man ever was and maybe some...

Does anyone else dislike the new hub layout?I much prefer the old layout to the new one that is being unveiled. Does anyone else feel the same way and wish HP would keep the layout the way it is? I think it looks just fine. The new one just seems so overwhelming and, well, just weird to me.

Does anyone else have random people posting weird comments on their hubsthat seem to be personal messages to other people that have nothing to do with your hub content? I keep having to deny and delete these!
