Tired of religion

I'm so tired of religion. Some days i want to believe it all, others i want to be Christian again, and others- i don't want to believe in any of it. How the f*** are you supposed to know which religion is right anyway? What if you are praying to a false God, and never knew it. So then you never had a chance to be "saved" because you were already damned to start with?

This is the type of s*** that runs though my head. And I've finally decided i don't give a damn. I'm sick of being ruled by religion. I want to live how i want to live, and not by the rules of some ancient book, or beliefs that have been passed down though the generations.

  • Read the bible. Read the case for faith and the case for christ by lee strobal. pray to God. Check out Christianity. It will drastically influence ur life

  • Doesn't help

  • My parents destroyed me with their religion. It wasn't until I escaped them after a brutal beating that I began to recover and have a happy life. They went to their graves miserable yet stayed in their beliefs.

  • Not all 'Religions' are like that. Listen, Christianity is NOT a religion. Reliogion is people trying to work God into what they want. Ignore that religion. Pray to God. Read the Case for Faith and the Case for Christ by Lee Strobal. Decide what is right but i guarentee the bible is right. Your parents are wrong. Don't mess with them.

  • Absolutely hilarious. Christianity is not a religion - puhlease. God is a figment of superstitious primitive ancient peoples. And Christianity is just the b****** offspring of earlier religions - Judaism and Zoroastrianism. The things that were not understood - God did it. The things that felt unjust - Don't worry God will punish them. Things that have no pattern and are chaotic - It's Gods plan.
    Today we know things like "the world was made in 7 days" are absolute nonsense. They are stories told around the fire. World creation myths. Every culture has them. Christians tie themselves in knots today trying to rationalise the bits of their religion they don't like, "it's figurative", or changing to fit in with a more enlightened world. If following a religion gets you through your day, then good. But if you truly want to learn objectively who you are and how the universe around you works, believing in ancient superstitions is not the mindset you need.

  • You indicate a want or willingness to believe, and to have a meaningful faith, but not one that places demands on you. My suggestion, before you abandon organized religion altogether, is to attend a Unitarian Church for a while. They don't impose a single theology on its members, but rather study and consider them all, allowing their people to believe what they choose to believe, without judgment or criticism. I think that environment may be exactly what you've been looking for, without knowing it, and may be exactly what you need. All best.

  • I believe in God.

  • Good going. Are you a christian?

  • Good on you man! Coming to a desicion like this can be really healthy, I hope that your life improves and you stop being bothered by your thoughts now that you feel more in control of stuff!
