so if thats true, how are you judged?

there is no god. there is only a pope. the bible is not the words of God, but the words of the many people that contributed to it. this is what catholics base their religion on. pretty weird imo.

btw, since masturbation is a sin, do masturbating catholics confess every time they commited it?

Starting clean with an actual argument (not going to bring science in):

I think religion is a complicated matter. There are some things I do believe in. Karma. I also believe you have a soul (whether that be a religious thought or not). And I do believe this soul is in a cycle. It comes back after every life is lived. Now you may ask why. Well, sometimes I just get this feeling, like a gut feeling, that I know people. I mean like, if I see a stranger, I may get the feeling that I already know that person. Maybe not in this life, but in another. And while not being a believer in the Bible, sometimes I get the feeling that yes, there is a higher being. Other times I don't. It's really complicated. I can go weeks thinking all these beliefs of mine are bullcrap and just believe in the hard evidence of things (science), while at other times, such as now, I regain the faith in these beliefs. Ultimately, I think that a person will believe in God or whatever they believe in if their life and the situation they face facilitate that belief.

I know I have just contradicted my whole position in this thread. But like I stated above, it depends on the person's life and the situation they face.

wow i have read like half of the thread, and i am already enjoying it. :]

its a great thing to talk about these things, so you can grow in this fun thing called life.

but, i am a blood bought child of god, because he is gracious and just and sent that ever satisfying sacrifice jesus christ.

i know some people (tim keller in particular) who would call people that don't believe in jesus christ's life and such "uneducated." a lot of scientific proof.

i don't have 100% proof that jesus lived. a lot of people who i know will tell me he did, and i agree with them. not too long ago, lots of records from that time. (actually still finding some today, like the dead sea scrolls and such).

i do believe though, because i have faith, and i understand i don't have to be 100% sure. but i sure believe he exists. i almost find it weird for people not to believe in a god.

i mean, i don't think that this stuff just happens by chance... i mean if everything including my emotions (love and such), my intellect, my morals, etc. are all just "chance" then what is the point of life?

love being important, morals, and such existing makes more sense with there being a god, then there not being a god.

you can say that not believing in a god takes just as much faith as believing in a god. not believing is just a shot in the dark.

but i need to get back to reading these posts.

(no harm meant anywhere in there, i really wouldn't try to offend anyone, and i shouldn't get offended :] happy posting)

I think a lot of people accept that there was a man called Jesus who lived and i accept this but i dont accept that any of the miracles that are written in the bible such as healing people or walking on water how they are portrayed in the bible

and so comes my favorite verse, Matthew 19:26 "......with God all things are possible"
so when you belive in God the word impossible does not exist
