Have an opinion?
Sort of. I know whenever anybody dies people usually start praying and going to church if just to have something to believe in. I think it's natural when you're on the brink of the abyss and the world's crumbling around you and in this blind desperation you cry out to some higher power whatever that may be begging for redemption or salvation or just some ray of hope in the darkness of the universe. That go a little dramatic but basically when I (and most people) am in a desperate situation when I feel like I have nothing else I cling to God for a reason to live, even if I'm not otherwise religious.
I dont take refuge in a religion but in God, Jesus is sufficient for me. I read recently that one of Yahwehs names is El roi, which means the God who sees, there are other names that show other parts of His nature. But this is important because it shows that He cares about and understands what others and I go through and that I'm never really alone in it.
Not so much.. I start out making things worse by tearing myslef down usually but find something else with hope to reroute my energy.. Read find a group of people to make laugh.. play an sing depressing music until I think I sound good... Cook get in my truck and drive until I see some1 with a flat on side of the road so I can feel i did some good..
Nope, never. Sometimes I feel almost envious of the people who do. Faith in the existence of a benevolent observing "creator" and "holy father" must be quite the reassurance when faced with the tragedy that is our limited little existence. But I just can't bring myself to "turn to" something I fundamentally believe to be a falsehood. When I feel down or weak, I either take refuge in close friends and family, or in solitude.
yes when i'm feeling down I feel like I have only God to tell how hurt broken and sad I am knowing God will never use what I'm sharing to hurt me like humans do.
There are humans who will never use that against you, they exist.
not in my geographical zone
Technically He could, that’s why he invented Hell. Try just telling your cat secrets.
@OddBeMe Yeah but he'd still know because isn't he supposed to be omniscient?
Well, since all religions are scam, lie and in some case justification for violence and discrimination, that would be no for me. I'm mind virus free.When I'm feeling down or weak, I deal with it on my own. But! But, this is solving a problem. What I like to do instead, is to prevent this problem from happening.
When I get too stressed out I talk to God about it. If I didn't have God I would have had a mental break down by now.
If you really investigated your beliefs I think you’d find you’ve been talking to yourself and you’re actually stronger than you think.
I don't. I can't. If I feel weak or down, I blame myself. I should have been stronger... I should have worked harder. I should have been better. Nothing I can't see or feel would be of any help with that.
Aside from troubling situations, I pray to God to give Him thanks & praise for His blessings & good graces.
So you just wasting your thinking time. OK, cool. :-)
Of course, my strength comes from God. He recharges my batteries and breathes light into me
What I practice isn’t much of a religion with no particular god in mind but I will always have a source of unlimited power to tap into whenever I need it.
i'm moderately religious but i do believe that there is no one that can help you or change something or give you strength other than GOD, you know all the solution that appear to you they can't all be coincidence or luck
They can actually. That’s what coincidence means.
@OddBeMe just this morning i had exams and didn't prepare for it (like zero) i took my note book and run trough the pages this morning for one hour (and they are not easy modules (numerical analysis and robotics ) ) i literally pleaded with god to make it easy and it was easy
So because your exam was easy after you prayed, does that mean it caused it to be? That’s a philosophical fallacy called post hoc ergo propter hoc.
no, cause i know from experience that that doesn't do shit anyway. if your ship goes under, praying doesn't save you. you gotta fix the hole and scoop the water out or you'll drown.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. -- Psalm 46:1
I take refuge in God when I feel strong, as well as when I feel weak.
I did when I was younger, but then I grew out of it when I realised I was strong enough to support/save myself
I believe in out of body exsperance an chee an after 3 near deaths that doctors say I should of died from a couple I have a belief in a higher power called God
Hopefully your higher power is the doctor that saved you.
@OddBeMe dint get to doctor till after it happenend an came back from not breathing
so I came back doctor said I was pretty bad off an kept his eye on me till he was shure I was better by me coming back for doctor visits
so part higher power part doctor
I thought your God is all powerful? Why did you go to the doctor? Is it that deep down you have doubt that he exists?
I always look to God for guidance. Even whilst I am strong
No, why would I do something stupid and pointless like that?
I will never be able to become religious because of how I think, but I do realise religikn can heavily influence/help people in a good way when they are down and need a sort of guidance
I don’t take refuge in things that aren’t real. I’m not six years old waiting for Santa.
Use too but I don't think he can help me or willimg. too I don't know
Yes. I'm very religous and dedicated to God and the Bible.
No, because The Leader killed God and created the universe. Praise the Leader.
I take refuge in the fact that things will get better, it's inevitable.
I seek him when things are good or bad. Its not an on and off relationship.
No, he ain't got time for so I ain't got time for him, either.
I don't know if you can call yourself religious (Christian) if you only come to God during tough times. You should be able to take refuge in Jesus all the time. Even so, he will always welcome you with open arms.
It takes time to reach those levels hey, at first you'll stumble and fall but it's good practise to remind yourself that
Nope.. Easter bunny n Santa clause way better pick me up way less reading material..
Yeah but he never answers me so I’m starting to stop
What do you mean honey? Can you please tell me more about what you mean and such? Thank you
God is what keeps me from feeling down or weak.
Not in religious practice, but in Jesus.
Yeah I guess spiritual beliefs for sure
i'm not religious, and actually feel good
That means you’re strong. Nicely done.
I wish I still believed in it. It was nice.
I no longer believe in God.
Yes I take refuge in God.
I pray to god not in religion the one and only god
Of course not, religion is fake news
Allah (God) always!!
more like everyday
God is our strength.
Not in years now.
Yes, I do.
