Post here about your story of how you came across your Religion and why you chose it, and if you changed Religions, explain why.

I was Christian a few years ago, I thought it was the one and only true Religion(typical attitude for an 8 year old. >.>) Then I started to look around at the world and the Church and what they do to people, this made me think twice about Christianity, but it didn't make me change, my granddad did.

A couple years ago, we went to New Mexico to visit my granddad, healthy as a horse, he played Basketball with me and my cousins, I loved him alot, then not two days later(sure enough, my birthday) he got diagnosed with Bone Cancer, we went back up there to see him, and as soon as I layed eyes on him, I was struck in horror, his skin was veiny, his legs were as thin as my biceps, he was in a wheelchair with a breather, and at that point I knew, a all-loving God wouldn't do this to a person who had other people who loved him very much, so at that point i became an Aethiest and the mere hint of Christianity reminds me of my grandfather and how much I cried that day.

So, that's my story...

Well. I personally am a more spirtiual person. i dont believe that one person could have created this world; god or not; this realm of good and evil; manipulation and justice;
so i am proud to say that i am Wiccan; i believe in something that created this world; and that humans are more than just servants to a silent god.
i digress

I'm a christian, so respect it! now that that is out of the way. I'm sorry about your granddad, but that is no reasosn to lose your faith in god,there are circumstances you may have overlooked while grieving.
1. Mabye he deserved it (not really, I don't say that often, but it is a possibility)
2. Perhaps it is time for him to leave this world.
3. God loves him so much that he wanted him bye his side. (the only way for that is death, and there isn't many good ways to die but still)
4. the good die young, so he must be an honest man
5. He wouldn't want you to be so distrusting,he would want you to be happy for all your days. don't ignore a man's dying wish
as for you KamKam have fun with your life as well. I'm sure 99.9% percent that those who care about you would want nothing other than for you to spend every day as happy as possible, I konw thats how I feel for all my friends(including you of course). So make the best of your life. The same goes to the rest of y'all to. Don't regret anything you do, for if it is your choice that influinces your choices, you won't have to regret.
well, I don't know 'bout you guys but I think I typed enough for this post.

excellently said.
i respect Christianity just fine;
to me; religion is an open and close philosophy; it can be just about anything; but their is always something we can agree on! live and let live!

You guys do that. Anyways, I chose Christianity for some good reasons
1. What is a world without faith? nothingness. If you can't belive in your religion, who can you belive in?
2. The bible has very resonable explanations of almost everything.
3. The story of the crucifiction is as true as the Holocaust (and just as brutal)
4. When I pray, I feel God's presence around me, and I'll tell ya it don't get much better than loving the one who gave you existence. So long story shortened, I'm sticking up for God.
Cuz, I become deeply saddened when someone disrespects my Creator.
People always crave to know more, what they don't realize is that they already know what they're looking for. Some things are better left unsolved.

Ignorance is true bliss.

Yeah, well humanity's needy like that. -_-

I prefer to think that there is no higher leader/protector and that humans are smart enough to take care for themselves, I know I'm way wrong on that point, but I still don't think we need a supreme leader...

I also don't like how the bible paints God to be a terrific being, I don't know of any...sane person who would send their son to pay for the sins that his creations did, doesn't sit right with me.

God does have some plausible strong points to him, he makes mistakes. (Noah's Ark) he supposedly sends signs of what to do when people are in doubt or trouble, and on top of all of that, he can do anything! Which is scary when you think about it. O_O

Wiccanism is a tiny offshoot of the Pagaen Religion....

Im more of a spiritualist. i admire the fact that human spirit can persevere after death;
memory is that aftermath;
i feel that in every thing you look; that life is magic
i believe that god or gods; its all deistic; they dont walk among us because we have our own devices; the whole son of god thing makes me feel like a pawn for a bored diety.
that kind of thing

I'm swerving more and more to Wiccanism, but anyway....

I disrespect the pushing Religionists, the ones that "Try to save your soul from oblivion" They....drive me insane!!!!!!!
