Just because I don't follow religion, does not mean I'm an atheist

    I don't like religion, plain and simple. My God is an aspect of me, I don't need a religion to acknowledge it.

      Who thought you were an Athiest? God is an aspect of you and in you. You don't have to agree with organized religions to believe, but remember we are not a God or Gods we are human beings with heart and souls. Well if you believe it. smile

        Hello, AEvans!  The OP originally mistakenly interpreted a post I made in another thread to mean that I thought he was an atheist.

        If I'm preaching anything, it's to be aware of the self, in all ways, including the way one may be percieved and to control every aspect, regarding one's own attitude and social condition.

    You seriously started a new thread for this? 

    I'm starting to think you just like to hear yourself talk.

      And what are christians doing, when they write long winded unoriginal regurgitations? Preaching is one thing, calling you out is another. I am not attacking anyone on any personal level, that's where the judgements come and their mostly coming from christians. I get the occasional Islamist but for the most part, it's pioused, right wing, evangelicals and southern baptists. I should know, I used to be just like that. Slinging judgements left and right, even though Jesus said not to. I understand the teaching, it's the religion that is flawed and it's the people that make the problem.

        Calling ME out?  Um, sorry no.  I am not pious, right wing, evangelical, nor am I southern baptist.  You're not addressing me in any of these posts.  You're simply stirring arguments for the sake of sounding oh-so-enlightened.  It's getting really old.

          From what angle are coming at me from? You didn't have to read the thread or answer to it, that's all you. So who is attacking whom? What motivates you to go on the offensive? I'm curious... Do you think you "know" something that I don't?

            I don't believe I indicated that I felt attacked.  I often read threads of yours and there is very little openness to discussion.  You simply want to hate religion.  I find it tedious. 

            And, the whole...you don't have to read the thread nonsense is nothing but a way to try to shove someone off when they don't agree with you.

            I apologize if you felt attacked.  I simply feel that you are wrong, and that your very flimsy OP in the other thread could easily be turned back on you by anyone who has any opinion either for or against God or religion.

              I talk to others about these things because I like to. It keeps me honest and if you'll notice, I include myself in everyone of my threads. I point out my own mistakes and my own humanity. It's one thing to read the thread, it's another to understand it.

                Ah, then perhaps because I disagree with you, I am neither intelligent nor enlightened enough to "understand" your threads.  I tend to think that you speak in circles and carry a hateful attitude towards anyone who espouses any sort of faith in a power outside of "self."  I also notice that your insults are not nearly as clever or subtle as you believe them to be.

                  Not at all... I judge more the social aspects of it, the human condition of it.

                    Okay, well, continue to judge as you will.

    "Just because I don't follow religion", means I am a Pagan.
