What are your religious beliefs?

I checked through the rules and could not find anything against this, but if I missed something, please remove it

I'm curious what everyone's beliefs are. Please understand this is NOT a topic for people to condescend, belittle, insult, or tell someone their belifes are wrong. Discussion is fine, but keep it courteous and open minded. If you cannot do that, please refrain from posting. I know some members feel very strongly about their beliefs, but that does not give them the right to be negative towards the beliefs of others. Thank you

I'm an other - I believe in a higher power and an afterlife, but I haven't really been able to pin it down beyond that as to just who/what that higher power is, etc. I don't "worship" in any particular way but try to live by the "golden rule" mindset as opposed to any particular doctrine of how one should live.

I belong to the Chuch of Christ aka Non-denominational. I beleive in baptism for the remission of sins and do NOT beleive in once saved always saved.

Oops, forgot a "spiritual" option, I guess that will have to fall under "other"

I'm not super religious, but I have a few things that I stick with that is a little different that most Christians.

- The Bible says to pray everyday. I follow this, but, for me, prayer means contract with God, not bowing down and singing at the top of your lungs, "Praise Jesus!" So, I 'pray' by speaking to God like a friend. Like, "Thanks for that, that could have ended up bad," or "Wow, that's amazing." I very rarely bow down and pray because I think that leads to hypocritism. (If that's a word.)

- Cursing/Drinking/etc. isn't your one way ticket to hell. It's not good, but it isn't like, "Gasp! She's insulting God through her enjoyment of life on earth!"

- I don't hate people. I know lots who are like, "People are evil and should all go to hell and burn and die and burn and die again!" People were made my God in his image. Sure, we sin and so bad things, but we aren't 'evil.' We are God's kids and we should respect ourselves as such.

- Creation is as it says in the Bible. Have some faith. Seven days. Seven 24 hour days and everything came to be. Species change, but horses don't turn into donkeys and lizards don't turn into birds.

- I don't know everything and I really don't care. Hell, I'll find that out once I'm dead and talking to Jesus. I'm going to enjoy earth and do what I believe is my God sent mission.

All in all, I make religion my own. I don't go to church every week because I don't agree with everything they say. I read the Bible by my self and ask for wisdom. That's how all my 'crazy' beliefs came to be.

I am a Christian, do I always live perfectly or the way I should: NO! I fail regularly to live up to it. I generally try to have a live and let live attitude about it. I do get tired of some Christians having a holier than thou attitude toward others. I also get tired of people say this or that is in the Bible and it is not. I don't care what your have heard. And yes I have heard this in my personal life and seen it on here, from both sides.

Example: drinking the bible doesn't say thou shall not drink, it speaks about drunkness. And there is allot of others.

Agnostic in that I believe there is something out there but I don't know what.
I guess you could say I am a little bit of everything.

I'm agnostic/athiest. I don't really believe there's a God or "greater being", but I'm not going to argue against it, and if someone gave me cold hard facts I'd be likely to believe. My dad is REALLY religious, so here's hoping he never finds out I athiest/agnostic, I think he'd either die on the spot, or spend the rest of his life lecturing to me and piling "god books" on me.

He's one of those annoying christians who thinks spreading the word means trying to push people into christianity
