I call myself "Spiritual, but not religious." What I believe is rather eclectic. I cull a lot of different things from many belief systems, and no known religion fits. In fact, although I know exactly what I believe, it would be very difficult for me to synthesize everything and put it all into words. What about ya'll?

I would say that I am agnostic. No way I could be just an atheist. There is so much going on that science can't fully explain. Yet so much that is impossible to prove. I feel like I'm in the middle.
I like learning about different religions. And I like learning about Christianity from different perspectives. I want to read the DaVinci code!

I was raised Christian/Catholic I work at a Catholic school too.

Spiritual, a little of this and a little of that. I take whatever resonates with me and throw out the rest

My re-LEGION, Randall

I have none. I don't change sides *laughs*

I always have, am and will always belong to the sole LEGION of the True One.

Everything else is just PR gimmicks of the Ill-U-Man-ati

Fellow W@nk€r here!

Seriously though;
I have no religion.

I think of God more in the "Conversations with God" way, in book one.

Or see my thread here!

As to masturbation/sex being a gateway to God and Spiritual evolution/awakenings;
see my other thread: http://www.linda-goodman.com/ubb/Forum27/HTML/000306.html

My spiritual beliefs fit with New Age, New Thought, and Unitarian Universalism.

I am a member of an interfaith Unity Church.

I went to a local Unitarian Universalist church a few times. They were mainly freethinkers and agnostics.

I don't have a specific religion. I spent many years breaking myself from the shackles of Christianity and have spent my recent years eating the meat and spitting out the bones of religion.
I am, however very interested in SGI which is a new age version of Buddhism.

Lol I refuse to call myself a member of anything..
I've had enough with my parents forcing me to go to church every Sunday (still under my parent's dominion), and whenever I disagree with my mom about church/the Bible, she'll say "Okay, Satan, watch where you'll go after death."
Religion has destroyed so much - I practice love, and preach about how to think for oneself.
People are taught to be carbon copies of Jesus, with their distorted view of him, and to judge anyone who isn't pure like them. They nod their heads and accept whatever their pastor tells them to. There goes their reasoning capacities...
"Wait, but why is it like this?" "The Bible says so." "Why are you disrespecting others' beliefs?" "Why should I? They've misguided the world."
I'm sick of it. I don't know how people can have so much hatred in their body without throwing it up. It's poison.
Couldn't keep that contained - had to let it out.
& instead of just praying, why don't they do something (churches I've been to, at least) to help the ones they're praying for?
instead of going to mass, i'd rather be out there giving my time and effort to those in need, instead of wasting it.

A combo of Anthroposophy(is not really a religion, but contains beliefs systems), Zen, Jedi, Buddhism, Christianity mostly....but at the end, my answer would be much the same as the OP.

------------------
“It’s an interesting thing. Seeing Kuan Yin relating to a flower so intently. She's not just looking at it; she's interacting with it…I’m seeing how the act of relating to a flower appears to be so simple. Yet, it takes a tremendous amount of courage to make such a “simple” act important. Now, the lotus is floating away.”

Jedi, huh? Interesting. I find a lot of Truths seeded within those films. I have also encountered a few people over the years who were blinded like Anakin; they think they are doing good, but they are so deeply lost in the Dark Side that they cannot see how lost they are. Such blindness always amazes me...and so I never underestimate the power of evil to completely distort one's perception.
