What's your religion?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Forgive me if this's been posted before, but I didn't see it. Most forums have these threads stickied or at least on the first or second page with lots of responses. I didn't dig too deep because of that as I figured even if I did find it, grave digging is against the rules.

Anyway, very simple. What's your religion? Feel free to disagree and explain why certain religions are not for you, et cetera.

And go.

    I'm not religious.

    What is yours by the way?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Don't actually follow a religion...
    but have a lot of beliefs alike to those of buddhism. :)


    Have a deep .. dislike for christianity, prehaps because my junior school was a C of E school and they tried to enforce the religion upon us?
    that doesnt mean i discriminate against christians by the way... have complete respect for their beliefs.

    Oh, I forgot to say mine. I am a Nazarene. :)

    What is that?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    It's kind of like a midway point between Judaism and Christianity. The Nazarenes were the very first congregation that accepted Yeshua ben Yosef, but were eradicated by Pauline Catholicism. So, as far as I know, I'm the only living Nazarene. :x

    Had a quick look on google, dont panic you dont appear to be the only one :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    There's the Nazarene Church, but they are Pauline and really don't differ all that much from mainstream Christianity. When I first saw it, I got excited too, but they're just another denomination of Christianity.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    So how is it that you come to be of this faith? :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Wikipedia it. If its not on wiki, its not a religion Lol.

    I've been religious for the majority of my life. I've spent sleepless nights researching and putting things together to the best of my ability. One of my next little projects is to make an accurate Hebrew-to-English translation of the Nazarene Bible. And at some point, should the wind take me, I'd like to open my Church.

    Really? I've never come across that on British forums before, must be a culture thing
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Could be. The only British forum I've been on was Teen Hut, which had it, but they didn't have it because every single thread in the debate forum was 16 year olds calling Christians the devil.

    Its a pretty godless country :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I don't know what I'd call myself anymore... I feel some soul-searching coming on in the future. (May have to talk to you about that one of these days, Chief, you're the resident expert.)

    At this point, I do believe in a higher power. There has to be something out there. How I define that something and what it means in relation to the rest of my life is still being determined.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Okie doke. Let me know what questions you have when you think about it a little more.

    And actually, now that I think about it, Talk Fuse was British too and had a thread like that. It wasn't stickied though.

    This.

    Im not religious and i dont believe in God but i do believe in fate, some kind of pre set order of events. I dont really know what it is.

    I also believe in spirits, ghosts, that kind of thing but i wouldnt call that a religion.

    At work so can't listen but should be correct,

    ... and we've worked hard to keep it that way.

    My religion - Apathy
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    But apathy just sounds so... boring.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Wouldn't a religion of apathy imply that you don't care about anything?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Thats why I think it sounds boring. xD
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    More an apathy about religion.

    Religion is fine if it makes people happy but, let's face it, most religious sects spend most of their time with their hands out asking for money.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Religious organizations, maybe. And ah, I see. I saw that you had the word "apathy" capitalized, so I wasn't sure if you meant it as a religion or about religion.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ah, that's better then. I was going to have to make you look at pictures of sad puppies, to force you to care about something, damnit!!

    And I'll regurgitate what the Chief said about religious organizations. Some seem to work that way, unfortunately, but religion on is own is a different story.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    That's my business ;)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Christian
    Christian.

    I was in a difficult and dangerous place in life and my local church saved me. so you could say i'm a born again Christian and proud to say it.
