in my religion (mormonism), which is christian, we believe that god, jesus christ, and the holy ghost are three different personages. making up the godhead. these three are the individuals of my worship

There was this morman girl at CMU that had never had caffeine, much less alcohol. We took her to the starbucks in the jewish neighborhood and corrupted her. She was never the same, hehe.

Personally I think catholocism is a little immoderate, so I can't really agree with morman's way of life either (sorry poopy nothing personal)

Why have as much or more faith in something or someone else as you do in yourself? Especially something you can't see. Bibles and religious writings do make for interesting historical reading though.

Poopy how much of this religion bull* do you actually understand? having been raised in the mormon church, and growing up in a world where reality is more predominant than god, I find many things so inconceivable. I recently got into a discussion with my friends brother, and it was amazing how there are so many ideas of what god is and what he does. my friend made a very good point in that conversation concerning religion in recent events. first i want to ask how do you know it's true? He made the point that those FAGS who flew the planes into the twin towers apparently thought they were doing a cleansing act of god. why would they lose their lives for something if they didn't believe in it? now here comes my point, how could they be right if inside those towers there was a collection of probably almost every faith imaginable yet a great majority of them died, and they died innocently. They didn't know that they would die that day. where was god for them. Even though i dont really carry any strong opinions of what is right when it comes to religion but i do know that the terroists were wrong. But then everything comes down to this, religion is just a matter of opinion to some or just what ever sounds good to others. I've taken up to much space already but please make some comments, because while i know alot about mormonism, i dont know the answer to the commonly asked qusetion "WHY?". God wasn't there for me, why should i be there for him.

My points below are not meant to anger any one on these forums. (SORRY, if they do) they are meant to give an answer to a question as i see it, meaning that i am answering these questions with my own words and not those of any one else.


first off, god is always there for every one, but you have the choice to make your own decicions. the concequences for these decicions are yours to bear because they were your choice and not god's. those people who destroyed the twin tower's had a choice to make and personally i think they will burn in hell for it, but that is my opionion. but i do know that denying god when you know he is real is the worst sin. example of this is Cain of the Cain and Abel story in the bible. he had dealings with god every day then he went against him to kill Abel. then murder (this is where the terrorists would fit), and in my religion adultery is next (which includes any sexual encounters outside of marriage).
the people inside the tower did die and they will be judged by what they did durring their lives. death can come at any time as you don't know when the next attack may happen, this is why being the best you can be is so that when death comes you will have no regrets.

"Why?"
here's why:
i see life as having a point. if it had no point then why would we be here. if there are any constants, then working to attain a goal would be one, right? work is required for any reward, therefore, work is required to go to any place good after death. and i see the catholic religion as requiring no work. you go into confessional, and are forgiven by a priest, not god. priests are men who study the bible but have no garuanteed contact with god. because if the priests are supposed to be true men of god then this whole child molestation thing wouldn't have happened. i think that that situation and how they handled it proves that they are teaching only half truthes at best.
Going to church twice a year is not work for god either. we were put here by a higher being. that higher being had a purpose in putting us here, then why not further his purpose? the catholic religion believes they can coast through life and do nothing for god and be rewarded by him (please excuse me, not all catholics are like this. some go to mass every sunday and even more, but the fact is that most do not!). and along with Zero i think a religion cannot be of any merit if they cause wars (as he put it) or put people to death. catholicism, many protestant religions, muslims, jews, and hindus all fall under these two catagories.
Mormons have not done either of these two things nor do we believe that doing nothing gets you rewards after death. we go to church a minimum of evrery sunday (i had a point at which i was at a church related activity 7 times in 6 days of the week). you probably don't understand something or have a question so i will stop here.

1)Buddah; not God. 2)Allah; not God. False gods are these. Orthidox Jews have no God for there is no God without the christ.
Father, Son, Holy Spirit= God. God and Satan are there reguardless if someone belives in them or not. That would be like saying I don't belive in the combustine engine so does that mean that it doesn't exsist? The devil would just as soon not have you belive in anything it makes his job easier because you'll spread the disbelife. That's how as contradictory as sience is we can all swallow a nice load of shit with our prozac.

god is money to most. Money is god. I want more god I don't have nearly enough of my own. And in the 1 second it takes for a life to end Money will be there holding your hand. Or maybe we just die and we're buried or burned and the tombstones can read: Lived 50 years made lots of cash and now he or she is fucking dead. Pisser.

This is my take on religion - even though I've always believed in God, or a higher being, I don't believe that that's the only right way to believe:

"The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also. I would not interfere with any one's religion, either to strengthen it or to weaken it. I am not able to believe one's religion can affect his hereafter one way or the other, no matter what that religion may be. But it may easily be a great comfort to him in this life--hence it is a valuable possession to him." - Mark Twain

I don't belive in shoving whomever's religion down any one's throat. 1 of a few problems I have with the Christian religion.
If some one asks by all means share. When you push issues is when you get shut out. The truth is the truth though brutal and harsh and God is more than capable of cruelty. God is God and it is how He says. Belive and you shall have etrenal life, exercise your free will choose not to belive and hell awaits.
