Free without God by PaleoClipperArt Free without God by PaleoClipperArt
When I was religious (by mainstream I mean) I was taught that any other religion was wrong; by even touching a book on wicca I would be possessed by a demon and cursed; even sex was evil. Yep, something that is completely natural was a creation of the devil, or at least the pleasure was made by the devil anyway.
Then, I eventually rid myself of the Christian God. I am free! I am a servant to no god, no master. I do not fear going to a hell in the afterlife, as I now see hell and heaven are just titles we humans gave to something we cannot truly define.

I kinda did that, only i still believe in a god, or goddess. While i don't think its the smartest idea to ditch some sort of great power above us, I can understand why you would. I just believe that SOMETHING is up there..heck, maybe even zues, and he said sex was a good thing, especially since he basically raped people. I don't think the christian god is bad, just the REALLY powerful Christian people. They're just a bunch of loonies who think that if you aren't like them then your evil. Just look in the bible, it says nothing about wicca and other religions being evil. They just made that up.

Er...actually the bible does say being a witch is grounds for being killed. Exodus 22:18, Deuteronomy 18:9-13, Galatians 5:19-20 (lists of things you shouldn't do, "magic" being one of them) Revelation 21:8 states who shall be automatically sent to hell in the end times.

There is alot in the bible that paints god being evil, or at the very least bipolar as well.

yeah, but that was added in a lot of the newer versions, if I remember right. And I totally know what you mean about it making god seem evil, and even though I don't actually believe in christianity, I remember that bible was written by a man, so therefor, man only put in what they wanted to believe.

Which alot of the religious don't realize, or refuse to accept, that truth about men writing.
(I have one bible from 1871, and it does have those verses in it...sad. very sad...)

oh well....
my main point here is to point out to people, and hope that people realize, that the bible is not the solid truth of things, nor should it be taken as a literal thing. they don't need religion to be a good person. that kind of thing.

It's true that you don't need religion, but it's also true that for most humans, although certainly not all, they need to believe in a higher power. I do, I just don't give it a certain name or belief, because I'll never truly know what's up there until I'm dead.

I'm just glad you have a legit reason for your belief, ya know? it's annoying when you find those kids who don't believe anything because it's the "cool" thing right now.

indeed! I have run into a few people who will simply believe creationism or intelligent design simply because a "majority" believes it, and they want to fit in.
the of course there are the kids who say "I'm atheist! Cause it's cool to rebel" but they don't understand one iota what being an atheist is; other than their false statement that they are angry at god for some reason or another. Atheists are not angry at god, for us how can we be angry at something that doesnt exist? You know??


I'm a bit odd though when it comes to atheists. I wholeheartedly will tell you there is no god, but in the same breath i will also state that it may be possible for something like a demon or angel to exist. Just not in the supernatural sense most people think. I really need to type out a short "paper" on that...
