How much does the bible and your religion matter to you?
Do you like your religion/beleifs?
My spirituality means a great deal to me. I do believe there is a power who created this universe and all in it. I do not take the Bible literally, it was written by men who may have been trying to articulate something they saw or were told that was unexplainable by their perceptions. And it has been interpreted too many times over the centuries, by men who may have been guided by politics or beliefs at the time. But I do believe much of the story and meaning of the Bible. "God created the heavens and earth and all in them in six days..." How long is a day to a God. We intreprete it as what we know one revolution of the earth. Is a day one revolution of the Milkyway galaxy, or a time frame we can't comprehend that is a million years?
If you look at everything in the world and where our world is located in the solar system at this point in time to allow life to exist on this planet, the amazing human body and that of life of everything about you, it is tough not to believe it was created and just so happened to build out of a pile of muck millions of years ago.
So my belief in a supreme being is strong. This is probably the most I've represented my beliefs in some time, but it is still a powerful force in my life.
God became a very real part of my life, in June of 1985. Since then, I have continually sought him, to learn more of his ways, and his spirit and his word. I would not trade my relationship with him... for anything.
It means the world to me.
I respect each religion, and each diff. denomination, however, I choose to follow God only. I go where he sends me, and leave, when he says to leave. I am not controlled by man or by organization. I am free in God... to be who he created me to be.
I love his people, the ones that are truly of his spirit, and I love to be around them, as he brings them into my life. I desire to be led by his spirit, to be taught by and sustained by him.
He touched my life, in a way that nothing else, nor noone else.. ever could. I have never been the same since.
Whom the Son has set free... is Free...indeed.
Blessings... on your journey!!!
I love the bible and my religion. My religion believes strongly in the bible and, my religion also is very loving when it comes to Heavenly Father and Jesus. We love our Lord and Savior. My religion matters a great deal to me. People in my church are very supportive, and very helpful. We read our bible every day or every Sunday. I'll always have my religious beliefs and will never stop believing them either.

Here's an article about the Big Bang theory.
Before you dismiss it, you should at least take the time to understand it, since you obviously do not.
My religion means a lot to me, I like my religion but sometimes the rules seem old fashioned, like sometimes things change and my religion stays the same, has the same rules.
I'm not saying I don't like it but I guess I'm saying it's really hard in the society that we live in.
It means a lot to me. It gives me gidelines to follow. I try to adhear to them but I am human and I fall short sometime but when I make it to the after life I hope God will judge me on my heart and not my human actions.
I dont believe in the bible.I believe in the Quran and I am extrememly content and happy with my religion.I find all my answers there and its a wonderful feeling!I hope everyone finds such peace in something!:)
Don't let anything influence you to be something you're not. God made you who you are for a reason. Be happy with yourself, be a good person and keep faith that there's something good in store for you :]
well my religion has nothing to do with the bible. how ever my religion suits me fine im wiccan by the was.
as far as the bible I just dont get how people could thing its the word of God.
ok , I do not think I have to go to church for god to answer me, I live life the way I want and I am a good person, no matter where I am , I pray and I know someone is listening to me
I'm Catholic. Hoping I'l be a good one. Im human though. That's why I appreciate very much the sacrament of confession.
I am very thankful to God.
I fink that religion is stupid,, if it wasnt for religion we wouldnt have half as many wars. besides its not as if other animals follow god.
I read the Bible the same way I read any other ancient writing that combines historical events and people with mythology and superstition.
the bible is what we should live by...its the truth...I try to go by the bible everyday...im catholic but that doesnt really matter
im catholic and I hate it, I think the beliefs are stupid..im atheist anyway
If god(s) existed, I would thank them that I have no religion.
im an atheiest and I love it!!
It means the world.
