Any kind of ritual is a pain in the pocket to me. . .
That used to be how I viewed it all...yet oddly enough I've found myself drawn to Shamanism as of late, and I don't think I see myself altering my religious philosophies any time soon. I find it to be quiet a nice neutral perspective that encompasses my already rooted belief structure and manages to in a sense weave the perspectives of other religions into it as long as one keeps their mind open.
I am protestant... I suppose I line up the most with Assemblies of God as previous post mentioned though I spent early part of life raised as a United Pentecostal (didn't adhere to the long dresses, no makeup, no cutting hair rules) but eventually became nondenominational/charismatic. I am sort of leaning away from what is stressed in those churches though and seeking more. The usual for me.
I have no interest in religious people, I might be for a certain time until I realize these people are delusional/stupid and/or too weak to face the obvious truth and choose to follow ridiculous dogmas.
The brainwashed do not know they are brainwashed eh?
I'm a Christian who converted from agnosticism when most of you deconverted.
I guess my worst habit is thinking that atheists who think their atheism requires some unique mental bravery are idiots.
I worship understanding, beauty, existence, and higher order in the universe. Can I call that a religion? Unbexhoitu maybe.
Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
I'm exactly the same. A couple months ago I renounced my religion of 20 years (Unitarian Universalism) due to its over-politicization (sort of the same reason I stopped listening to Ani Difranco - can't everyone just be neutral!? Oye I'm such an INFJ). So, upon researching for a "new" religion I realized that my own personal religion suits me just fine.
Pantheist. I don't know why, but it sounds like such a stupid word, and it's so vague that I generally never tell anyone that. But no one's ever interested. Most people probably either assume I'm Agnostic/Atheist or that I'm Roman Catholic (because I grew up Roman Catholic).
