  • What do you believe?

    After reading something earlier today, I thought I'd post a poll and ask what make up of faiths and beliefs we have on the forum. This is not to cause issues of any kind, just general noseyness!

            I am a Catholic (an easy going one at that bearing in mind what I do..)
            I grew up a protestant but converted after marrying a Catholic

              I am an agnostic but am happy to live by Christian rules until someone comes up with something better.

                I'm not really anything specific, I wasn't christened as my parents felt my religion should be up to me plus they're not particularly religious either. I remember being really upset at my CofE Primary School when the rector said those not Christened go to hell - he was a cheerful soul!

                Wasn't really interested in religion until I went to uni in Leicester and was surrounded by all faiths - amongst our group of friends there was a born-again Christian, very strict Muslim, very very lax Muslim as well as Catholic, Jainist, Hindu, Sikh and a few 'nothings'...and it never caused problems - did result in many discussions til 5am about politics and religion though

                I'd put myself down as 'other' as my belief is probably a mix of a lot of them although when we got married it was a buddhist affair but that was because it took place in Sri Lanka

                    i put myself down as other cause I don't really follow a religion as such but i was bought up as a Christian ( more to do with my gran than my parents,she took us too church when we were little)
                    I tend to live more by life rules "treat people as you would like to be treated" and "there for the grace of god go I " etc etc

                      I'm not religious, do I count as 'other' or do I not vote?

                        I put other as I think I would say I am a humanist.
                        If you are a good person and do your best not to harm others then that is about the best you can be!! (whatever religion)

                          Ultimately, I believe that all faiths lead to the same higher power, whatever that might be.
                          I usually say Christian just for something to say but I believe that there is a ultimate force for GOOD, a guiding presence that encompasses all humanity, not really a specific denomination. I kind of like little bits of many religions, and have always thought that they are branches of the same God anyway, just that humans interpret things their own way.

                          The basic elements of most religions, of being kind to your fellow man and being the best person you can be are all that is really important, I believe.

                            I guess I would have to slot into 'other' as I practice Messianic Judaism also known as 1st century Christianity, it's neither mainstream Christianity nor Judaism, but the ‘best of both’.
                            In a nutshell......
                            I accept Jesus as Lord (the only Way, Truth and Life) and the Bible as the infallible Word of God, we celebrate the festivals that are set out in the Bible normally viewed as Jewish festivals because the dates, times and ways to celebrate them are set out in perpetuity. We follow the lifestyle example of Jesus who along with all His disciples lived as observant Jews.
                            If that makes sense?

                              If i had to choose i would say Pagan. But i would say its my own version. I dont do the whole Pagan thing but celebrate the turning of the seasons rather than Jesus being born etc.

                              I went to a Catholic school, have a mother who was raised in a convent by nuns! (Irish) but both my parents are aging hippies who live in the wilds of the West of Ireland and my Dad often gets called a Shaman! Lol!
