    Everyone be careful about what they say, the "person" who started this thread could very well be God testing you. Amen brother.

    I think it's very simple.

    People (myself included) need to feel like they are a part
    of something bigger than just the individual. Sure we might
    have been able to all be 'citizens of earth' but that would only
    really work back in the pagan days. We want to know that there
    is a higher power that is faultless and that there is a divine path
    for us to follow. I'm trying my best to find that path of faith again
    but I know just how easy it is to live without faith these days.

    Sure the fear of death is a big one, but I think for me it's more the
    fear of having lived a wasted life. It really all comes down to right
    and wrong. If it's 'God's' plan for us to do right wit oursleves,
    then we have no excuse to do wrong.

    There's the judgement factor which is very important for society.
    Some people think they are above the law or otherwise untouchable
    but it's very important to order for everyone to think that we will
    be judged on our actions and intentions. That's the glue of culture.

    either way... I'm rediscovering my faith and tryingto get back on the
    path that was set out for me. I've been living in Babylon for too long mon.

    I found a bit of insight in what Kilo was saying.... I found a bit of humor in "endless twat" as well.

    It's not too often that I hear someone talk or debate religion that can offer a feasible, in my mind, argument. Good stuff Kilo, and good luck with your search.

    I am usually a sarcastic ass but not this time.

    I really think that a little more faith and a lot less dogma
    would make the world a lot more livable.

    wasn't there a thread on the power of prayer a while back?
    Anyone care to bump it up?

    *believe*

    I believe there is something, but with GOD, Buddah,
    Allah, a comet, and all those other gods out there..
    I dont know what is the truth anymore. Ive never
    been into church..I only go for weddings, baptismals,
    and funerals. Can someone explain what religion is
    the right one? Ive always wondered who was right.

    I do believe....in righteousness. (sp)
