It doesn't seem here like anyone knows that you do not have to "FOLLOW" any religious faith. Faith comes from within. It is what gives you your peace. Personally, I don't get most of these faiths out there.

....Knowing Jesus Christ and the God that sent Him to die for my sins brings me incredible peace and inner peace that passes all understanding
My faith isn't "out there' its based on God's Grace and what I believe with all my heart.

They don't make sense to me. To me, where we came from and where we are going is right in front of me ever single second.

.... I certainly know where I came from and, even more assuredly where I am going!

You may consider looking into some of the ideologies (not theologies) of the eastern world. They really stress the harmony in life and living and not the dissonance of death and what happens when we are dead.

.....Jesus overcame death. It is through Him that we have eternal life. No Christian that I am aware of is focused on death.

They focus on looking toward inner peace and calming the energies of your spirit. As far as morality is concerned, that doesn't have to have an external source like a book that was penned by people that we've never met, more than 2,000 years ago and edited by a church that was driven by control of the masses for several hundred years. It is kind of like trying to get cnn news out of the enquirer.

...Whoops, much of the Bible was written more like 1060+ years ago or MORE that two thousand years ago. And who read it was, for years, controlled by the church authorities, not by the people -- The church controlled the people, not the other way around. Part of the reason for the reformations and counter-reformations of the fourteenth and fifteenth century.
> Sorry if I offended anyone, wasn't my intention. I do not judge anyone for their choice of religion, only their choice of morality. If your faith gives you your peace, then your faith has done you service and that is all that matters.
.... It has been my observation that folks who "bash" Christianity really know very little about it.... the REAL thing that is. (no one specific in mind here)
...I am not offended, just wanted to clarify a few things. Mama
