I can see a way that religions coul dbe openly discussed here. I know I have asked questions here regarding certian aspects of religions that I wanted to know views on with no problems.

The thing is, not to force your beliefs is all. It is easy to say "I believe that the gospel should be spread", without actualy gospelising (is that a word??!).. I find religion a fascinating area, I really.. I could never ever condemn any one religion, though I don't have the beliefs in them - because, after all, there is the possibility I'm wrong!! ;)

I don't think I really *believe* in anything.. I like the philosophies of Buddhism best of them, and its the religion that interests me most at this point in my life. I spent much of my teens at a protestant church.. not through parental force (neither were church goers) but through my own choice (and none of my friends knew at all! It would NOT have been cool!). I undertook a year of weekly classes before becoming confirmed, so I have studied the bible a bit. I just don't like alot of the lessons the bible tells me, and I could never believe in God.

But, the on thing in life that upsets me, and pushes me away, is being told that I should be a certain way. I like to be given the information, I told to be told what a person gets from their religion and hwy that have followed that path, but I don't want to be told that that is the way I should be following.

I hope this makes people understand me better.

Nikki
