Do you believe in any religion? I mean, I am Christian because I was baptised and I took my first communion but I've never believed in Christianity nor in Catholic Chuch since they don't lead by example. It doesn't make sense that priests even the Pope say "we have to be modest" and they haven't. It's incredible to watch on TV those luxurious buildings, those jewelrys they wear and all of that wealth the Catholic Chuch has.
I can't understand they are against the use of the preservatives even the abortion, so they prefer that people die by ADIS than people have a save sexual relation.
Even worse, what happen with all of those cases are shown up on TV related to pederasty? None of the priests are tried nor convicted.
Finally,who can belive that a person who was killed could resuscitate three days after his death?
Hello,Actually believing and not believing is a personal freedom. it depends on what result can everyone come up with after thinking deeply in life and universe. also the environment arround him has a greate effect on his belief, as someone might be born in a atheist home, shall we expect his belief? .So, you can think and try to find some answers for the questions about universe.1- Who created the universe?2- Why we are alive?3- Where we go after death?4- what if believers are true? will i go to hell after death? XD so, depending on your answer and thinking about these question, that you will never know its answers. you will decide your way.also, compare between atheists life and theists life, and try to fined out which one is proper for our universe and could be right.. so i can say that these answers exists in Qura2an or Piple. as it illustrates what exactly happens, what we have to do, and what we should not do.
i'm a muslim and believe me it is the best one cuz it's the true one.
ican't tell u every thing here, u can just read about it and i'm here to answer all ur questions
best of luck
I agree with Hassan, at the end of the day you believe what you choose to believe in.
It’s true that Catholicism—like other religions—is not reputable but looking beyond religion, an individual is just as easily easily prone to ponder about life and find theories on why things are and how.
There are so many aspects of many modern day religions I’m not OK with, but to tell you truth the idea of a faith still intrigues me: having faith in a someone or something that can sometimes seem impossible is what keeps people going in their darkest days, it gives hope when better days seem impossibe (and it doesn’t even have to be about religion).
As long as you’re happy, life is good is it not? =)
PS. The new pope actually refused to live in the Vatican, he says it’s too luxurious for a man of the people.

Naxto, when you discuss the worth of something, it is unfair to mention only its liabilities, while ignoring its assets. You only present the liabilities of the Catholic choice (of which I am not a member). You complain about certain things that Catholics do, but never mention the myriad of good things they do, such as run hospitals, clinics, schools, orphanages, and women shelters. And you never mention the innumerable individual acts of kindness that Catholics are inspired to perform each day by their religion. If you only look at what you perceive to be the bad things about the Catholic Church, you will fail to see all the good it does.
Lastly, you have criticized the wealth of the Catholic Church. Naxto, are you personally prepared to sell your computer and other possessions, and then give most of the money you receive to the poor? If not, why not? And please don't tell me that you are too poor to sell your possessions and give away most of your money. There are others poorer than you who could use your help.
I agree with you Naxto. For me the problem isn't that people believe in religion it's that it has a terrible effect on others. Like you mentioned, encouraging people not to use contraceptives for religious reasons is very damaging as it causes the spread of AIDS and it doesn't allow people to control the size of their families so they end up with lots of children they can't provide for.
(Also "preservatives" in English is a false friend for Spanish people as in English it's a substance that treats food in a particular way so it can be kept for a long time without going bad - often it's used for jams etc)
You can not function as a Christian if you do not accept responsibility yourself for reading your Bible, for trying to understand and for praying. If you depend on your leaders to be perfect, and you do not do your part to be a knowledgeable follower, your relationship in a church will be empty. Things of the spirit require faith. Your religion can not be explained in short paragraphs, but requires your active participation and a lifetime of learning and growth. I am a Christian, but not a Catholic, although this is not important.
No, I don't believe in religion. " Religion is the opiate of the people ", (Karl Marx, 1843). There is a gene that determines whether people are religious or not. This gene is known as the God gene, (VMAT2). Humans don't have free will. I don't believe in a God who can judge us, because our behavior is determined by our DNA and life circumstances that are beyond our control. The belief in heaven provides comfort for the religious family who has suffered from the death of its beloved child. When a child dies, its religious family believes that they will someday reunite with their child and get to know their child in heaven. What really happens to "the souls" of children who die? Why should they get a free pass to heaven, even if they would have become evil adults who would have rebelled against God? Why must adults live through the sufferings of this life before we go to heaven or hell, while all the children who die always go straight to heaven?
Hi, i'm a Chinese.I don't believe in Buddhism, but i do believe in the spirit of that. Be a person, u must have your own principles to live and often it's difficult for us to find them. where are the principles from? They come from our spirit. What we think leads to the actions most of the time. So maybe u can just take sth good from your religion
God created the world.and he made the rules about everything.the nature rule and the social rule ,especially relationship between people,like parents and chileren,husband and wife.God regard marriage as important ,he think the relationship between husband and wife is just like christ and chruch.the rules are made to protect us,to prevent us from hurt by each other.so that we can enjoy life and have a real freedom in that enviorment.and God gives human free will that we can choose who we will serve.adam and eva had make a choice. today everyone should choose his way ,too.a way full of life ,truth and love or a way of death and darkness. that must be the most important choice people can make.jesus christ or not.and i am a christian
