  • I am Catholic. A good synopsis of what I believe is summarized in the Nicene Creed. http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11049a.htm God gave me reason. I apply it in this way: Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life". St. Paul teaches that "God wills all men to be save AND COME TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH" (emphasis added). Therefore, Jesus has to provide a sure way to learn what to believe (the Truth) and how to live (the Way). No other church besides the Catholic Church (ref 1 Tim 3:15) claims to teach authoritatively and infallibly in areas of faith (what to believe) and morals (how to live). For example, compare the unchangeable Catholic teaching on the sanctity of life to the vacillating teaching of every other Christian ecclesiastical group. Every other Christian group allows direct abortion and/or human experimentation (a.k.a. embryonic stem cell research). The Catholic Church has openly condemned direct abortion since the beginning and has codified this teaching as early as the 2nd century. (reference the Didache).
  • A summary of Catholic beliefs is contained in the Nicene Creed (from the year 325): We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us and our salvation He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit, He was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day He rose again in fulfillment of the scriptures: He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son, He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen. For a complete description of what Catholics believe, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/text/index.shtml For an overview, see: http://www.americancatholic.org/Newsletters/CU/ac1086.asp With love in Christ.
  • I'm an atheist. Don't believe in Gods, prophets, the mechanics of any of the various religions, or in the installation of organized religion. As far as personal beliefs go beyond that. I don't believe in an afterlife persay such as a paradise like heaven or a hell like, well, hell. Their could be something because I'm also undecided on the possibility of ghosts, but I don't have a clear idea of what and I'm leaning toward the idea their is nothing. I don't believe in demons or angels or any other type of higher spirt beings. I also don't believe in rencarnation or karma. I believe in only what I can be given evidence for, so I'm in favor of the scientific ideas such as Abogenisis or The Big Bang.All athiests believe their is no god(s). Other than that, other beliefs can be quite exotic and different.
  • Live a fulfilling life without hurting anybody, that includes their feelings. Help a few people who are relatively underprivileged, along the way. Show the world there is no such thing as god, it's just us, and we can't keep hurting our own in the name of this mythical character.
  • I have no religion and have no religious beliefs, save believing that all religions are wrong. - I am an atheist and a humanist. I don't believe there is any reason to believe there is a god, especially not the one described by any religion I have ever heard of.
  • There is one basic religious belief I have out of which many other extended beliefs have accrued. I believe in God. I believe all that has been happening, all that is happening and all that will happen are according to a preset plan the designer of which is God. We can exert influences to make improvements to the plan but cannot change its basic structure in any way. I believe everything that exists has its source in God and all that exists must eventually return to God. There are more particular beliefs. But what I have summed up will cover almost all in the broadest sense.
  • i believe in god and everything. I dont think he will turn me away for not knowing all of the prayers we use in church. I dont think he will turn me away for not going as much as i could. But the Teaching system for confirmation treats my little cousin like shit cuz she does not go to church on sundays for she has either cheerleading practice or something. and her parents are divorced witch means her mom works a lot. i am already confirmed and i saw how they treat people. If god were the one teaching he would understand. thank you
  • After much looking into religions I think they all have been corrupted. If you believe me wrong take a good look at the founders of ten mainstream religions.
  • I lean towards buddhism. Reincarnation and enlightenment works for me. I believe that life is simply for learning. And whatever you chose to do, you are learning. You and your soul.
  • My basic religious beliefs are very simple: I have none
  • I have none,I just believe in God.
  • I'm an agnostic.
  • I do not have religious beliefs as such because they may be just lop sided!I am a spiritualist and spiritualism covers every aspect of religion and no religion as well. It covers agnosticism and atheism too. Now for my beliefs. I believe everyone is right from their point of view.They all have a perspective which is what they believe in.Let me give you an example: 4 blind men went to check out an elephant. The first touched his trunk and said it is like a wet hose pipe. The second one touched the leg and said it is like a tree trunk. The third touched the ears and said it was like a big leaf. The fourth touched the tail and said it is like a rope. Now no one was wrong. Remember they were all blind and it was their own perspective. Only those who are realized or liberated or enlightened know how the elephant of spirituality looks like. Here in this material world, the blind are leading the blind and no one can give the correct perspective. So it is better to say that they all are right in their own way. Thank you and have a nice day!Emikat and everyone here.
