I am a christian-but I let my actions/lifestyle speak for me most of the time. My mom is a bible thumping pentecostal preachers wife. My Dad was a Preacher. Growing up I didn't listen to them too much-as most kids tend to do. But now We get along fine and have some highly heated religious discussions. Naturally- I'm always wrong.
I live the same way they do, believe the same way they do, to a cetain degree. But I don't like committing my self to one particular religious name. I go to whatever church I feel close to God in. I act and try to do whatever I think God would want me to do. And it drives my folks crazy.
What do you think?
Is your actions more important than whatever brand of religion you proclaim?

Practicing Roman Catholic here.

I don't agree with many of the Church's social views (birth control, gays, etc.), but that's why I keep going. I believe that change can be most effective when it comes from within.

Independent (Non-Denominational) Baptist. Basically, a Baptist by conviction.

The "tag" is not as important as the actual belief system. I do not agree with all churches that call themselves Baptist, but historic Baptist belief and the Bible are one and the same in my mind.

BTW, being a Baptist never has and never will gain a persona entrance into Heaven. But then, that's another topic for another thread! tongue.gif

Have a great day!

Atheist/pagan here - I'm basically an atheist, but for a long time, I've been fascinated by the pagan lifestyle/religion, and am currently doing some reading/research on druidism.
I agree that ones actions are more important then their "tag"

I guess, I'd be officially labeled wiccan. But I'd settle with almost everything pagan that suits me and makes me feel well. So I'd say, it's more important what you do, think and believe than what kind of religion you call yours.

Good one Robert.

I am a Christian-but smile.gif should be a new catagory wink.gif

That is what I am but I don't go in for religeon. I have faith in the God of the Bible and feel pretty much the same way you do, in other words I try to be the person that God would have me to be as an expression of love for him.

The operative being "try" I think actions speak volumes but still being human there is always that factor to keep in mind. smile.gif Vulcans have it so much better with out all that emotional entanglement tongue.gif

I'm a Creationist (though, not literal when it comes to Genesis). I also believe in the message of Christ, though I think the message is found between the lines, rather than in the words put to paper.


I'm one of those people who believe the Big Bang theory is just us finally figuring out how it was done (vaguely understanding the basics of Creation). The most basic law of physics states that every action has an equal and oposite reaction. So that must be true of reactions needing equal and opposite actions. The Bang was a big reaction, but to what? Therein lies the source. smile.gif

Try getting in front of the TV when 'Cosmic Voyage' is on Discovery or OLN. The order of Scientific creation is quite parallel to that of Biblical creation.

I'm a Messianic Jew. "Christian Jew" for those who don't understand. However on my moms side we come from a long line of Baptist. It was kinda confusing growing up. But as I matured I find that it isn't the denomination but your walk with God. I know too many people that believe that only a certain denomination will get into heaven. I like reminding them that Yeshua wasn't a Catholic, Protestant, or whatever, he was a Jew.

Those of you that are pagan/wiccan, do you believe in God?

That rather depends on what you think God is.

I am a Christian and base my belief on Jesus Christ as revealed in the scriptures....I currently attend a non-denominational Charismatic church in my town, but have attended many different churches over the years-Roman Catholic, Reformed, Christian Reformed, Baptist,etc. I agree that it is more important to live your faith than just talk about it-"the proof is in the pudding". Or, as Jesus put it, "you will know a person by their fruit".
I am curious, though, about Messianic Judaism. Is it like the "Jews for Jesus" group that travels to different churches & does the presentation called, "Christ in the Passover"? Very fascinating.

I believe, that god and goddess include many different aspects of life and that the god you believe in is only one aspect of the god I believe in.
So I'd pretty much go with Sekhmet's 'Which one?'. cool.gif
