    I would have to say that I'm not really religious. However I do follow some concepts from buddhism, such as the concepts of Karma and Reincarnation. As such I selected Buddhism from the poll.

But when the chips are really looking bad...It's amazing how they look for God to help them. Is it really that hard to be honest if only to yourself?
    I am an atheist not to look cool. I just don't think there are any Gods. You could say I was catholic but only because I had my communion and confirmation but that of course was down to my parents taking me there.

    Even at school I was very good at Religious education but as I got older, I soon made up my mind that there was no such thing.

    That's just me. I do respect other people's beliefs

    awwwwwww. NOLU you lost your faith but you found a cool avatar!!!!!! i must steal it from you!!! where did you get it!! neways I respect all religions too. Well, there's just one religion I don't understand and that's Jehovah Witnesses. Oh and you should have put Other on the poll. From doing my research Mormon's aren't Christians at all and I don't think Jehovah Witnesses's are either, but they did come out of Christianity though.

    Well, I don't know where you did your research but I think Odysseus can address the Mormon side of things. As far as the 'other' issue - only 10 choices are allowed in these polls. What else do you think would fall under 'other' that isn't already covered here?
    I have studied with Jehovah Witnesses & , yes, they do believe in Jesus Christ being a divine saviour.

    The difference between Jehovahs witnesses' and true Christians' beliefs is that Jehovahs witnesses stretch parts of verses or teachings to mean what they want it to mean, and ignore the rest. I've seen them make a point with part of a verse, while the other half contradicted their point.

    So, you're saying that JW's are not true Christians? I know of quite a few that would take issue with that. And as far as interpreting the Bible goes - JW's also don't have a monopoly on putting their own little spin on what's there.

    awesome NOLU. I know JW's probably would say they are Christians. I have a family member who is one. From doing my research they are not Christians. But not being a Christian isn't a bad thing. But they would call themselves Christians b/c of what they believe. But because they believe in Christ doesn't make them Christian. There are other things that define Christianity besides believing in Christ. Oh yeah and about finding that Mormons aren't Christians I went to several websites and read books about it. Mormons are pretty cool!!! But anyways enough of this! Lets all dance the night away!!! Anybody want some cookies and milk? NOLU what website did you find that avatar, I'm not gonna steal it i'm just gonna borrow it w/o asking. lol
