I think that religion in general is just an insurance policy, created by authoritarians for their own wellbeing.

Religion is for those who are afraid of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

I think I read that quote somewhere on this site once. I really like it!

My journey has been a long dark one but I have settled in the church of my ancestors, Scottish Presbyterianism. My church actually was started by immigrants that came to America the same time my clan did and shares the same beliefs.

Your right to a point but hell is a Judeo-Christian concept no other religion believes in the concept of hell.

If Christians are wrong about hell, then we all have nothing to worry about. But if it's real unsure.gif There'll be a lot of very unhappy people on the other side when it comes that appointed time. That point alone is what keep me believing, learning and praying.

I'm not sure that fear should be a reason to follow any religion. The better safe then sorry idea doesn't work for me.

I was just stating why I follow Christ. You are free to choose what you want but I do believe that if I'm wrong, then I have nothing to worry about on the other side.

What do you think?

Is your actions more important than whatever brand of religion you proclaim?

I think people should judge you on your actions, not your words or any labels that you are applied. biggrin.gif

As to my religion: I am a celtic/brythonic polytheist. laugh.gif

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

Pagan religions are those that don't worship, honour or believe in the God of Abraham, he that sits at the centre of the Jewish, Christian and Islamic faiths.

In short: I would be very surprised to find a wiccan (unless this is being used by an American to describe a witch) or pagan believing in that particular God.

How can you be so sure? One wonders how stupid God would have to be to miss the disingenuousness of playing the lotto with your conscience.

Antwn;

I don't follow the Judeo-Christian-Islamic God and to be honest I don't think that when you get to the otherside, if there is another side, that who/what is ever in charge really cares what you did here. It all to the reycling station for the bunch of us.

Don't want any other side -- and don't think we'll be dragged into an otherside afterlife, either punitively or rewardatively. But I do have a dream about being cremated at the end and strewn over a field of freshly planted hot chili peppers, and coming up as thousands of glossy green leaves and hot red fruits all turned to the sun. If that's recycling, then what could be better? smile.gifuser posted image

I don't believe in the Judeo-Christian/Islamic God either....and that is a profound understatement. I was only trying to point out the problem with Pascal's wager which Nova Scotian paraphrased, and do so from the perspective of one who does believe in the JC or I God. That doesn't mean I have taken that perspective personally.

Stoirmeil - Red chili peppers? I can see you want to leave this world leaving a profound effect.

For want of a better name, since no one has ever hung one on us, I would say I am a Sundancer. If you want to know more you will have to do a search, as it is FAR too complex to address here.

One of the greatest minds of our time , Albert Einstein, said that " if god had not created man, then man would have created god"...

Some profound thinking if you ask me!

I am Pagan ( not Wiccan ).

Wiccan is a modern contrivance to incorporate many beliefs into something...

I am a witch in the sense that I use herbs and tonics to cure and manipulate life...

How one is labeled is not the answer to anything...it is how one lives and treats the living things of mother earth ( the Goddess )!


--------------------
I support the separation of church and hate!

IMAGINATION - the freest and largest nation in the world!


One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Am fear nach gleidh na h–airm san t–sith, cha bhi iad aige ’n am a’ chogaidh.
He that keeps not his arms in time of peace will have none in time of war.

"We're all in this together , in the parking lot between faith and fear" ... O.C.M.S.

“Beasts feed; man eats; only the man of intellect knows how to eat well.”

"Without food we are nothing, without history we are lost." - SHADOWS


Is iomadh duine laghach a mhill an Creideamh.
Religion has spoiled many a good man.
