I'm a pastafarian, that kinda counts... ;) I'm very interested in the Christian faiths though, and if I was capable of accepting it I'd probably like it. :)

is that what I think it is :) if it makes you happy of course it counts. :D

everytime I think of catholic, I think of Mother Theresa, the catholic church has a large history ay!


well I am what you call a born again christian, who believes in jesus christ and his crucifiction as well as his ressurection, I dont like to call it any-kind of religion, but rather a relationship with lord himself..I'm not trying to bible bash or anything like that, (noway) I just wanted to see if there were any other christians around

my husband was born and raised a Christian but his beliefs are from many religions, mainly Hebrew.

I do not agree with organised religion because I believe spirituality is a very personal thing and no one should tell you how you should believe.

That "classes" me as Agnostic, as I believe in a higher form but I don't believe in Religion.

Make sense?

Although I was raised in the Catholic way - I tend to have issues with the Catholic church .... I also agree with you Nikki - no one has the right to tell you what you can or can not believe it. It is very personal.

I am spiritual...although I am not catholic or christian...I suppose I am agnostic, although I was brought up with Wiccan beliefs, and I still have a lot of those values and ideals today :)

i am a Christian.

Grew up in a Christian household. But I go to church now. My husband and I are Christians and attend church :)

Would love to have a chat sometime, about anything.

We go to a Church of Christ Church :) But i have been to baptist and weslyan methodist too and AOG and United :p

I am 22 :) I became a Christian in 1996 so 11 yrs ago :)

Hubby got baptised about 1yr or so ago, but was always into spiritual stuff and loves reading up on religions.

I wasn't brought up in any church, I grew up in a broken home actually, though I believe that nanas prays always covered us. I grew up believing in god, its only been a year since I became full-on, just the life that I was heading for, I was ending up 10x worse then how I grew up.. so yeah in my lowest of lows, I cryed out to the lord, and I just cant explain the reality of it..(thats me)\

On the other hand, dads first wife was a psychic, and then his wife now, is wiccan. So before I became a christian, I was very spiritual, agnostic, I now can call it :lol:

But for me at the end of the day, spirituality is a personal thing, just like you said "electron girl" I havent even been to church in ages, I havent even been praying, but in my heart, I can say I know whats the what.. (for myself)

its funny because my mum was always very anti-religion and anti-american

I married an American Christian
Life is usually like that :wink:

Religion=Knows of GOD, Focus on tradition, rules and regulations

okay iv contradicted myself
I was very spiritual, agnostic, I now can call it
no I cannot call it that, because I have always been a believer that there is a god, even though I still believed in angels, and did tarot etc hehehe
