Same here.

I believe there's something or someone out there but I am no longer concerned about what exactly it is. I try to live a good and productive life while I'm here and not worry a lot about what happens when we're not here anymore.

I figure if I'm wrong, worst that happens is that when I die, I will simply go back to the same state of non-existence I was in before I was born. That wasn't a bad deal.

Spinoza's God is an engineer that's present in the natural laws of the universe, a single infinite substance, with mind and matter being two intangible ways of conceiving the one reality.

Jesus is my friend. We go way back. But I haven't met his father yet.

I believe in God, I'm Baptist, but I'd rather sorta just say I'm Christian.

I'm open to the possibly of there being a god, but religion makes me uncomfortable. I've tried, but it doesn't fit.

Currently, I've distanced myself from organized religion and any institutional church. I do believe in God, but I believe in general revelation, that God and God's grace is evident in his creation (so therefore you don't have to be a white upper-middle class evangelist going to church twice on Sunday and Wed. night in order to be "saved"). I have studied theology quite a bit in college and on my own, but the beliefs I hold in that regard have more to do with my interest in that field then wanting to impose them on other people.

If I am wrong, so be it. Personally, believing in something larger and greater than myself keeps me from feeling totally worthless and defeated.

God exists. I have no doubt of this.

I basically agree with this. I believe in the Christian concept of God, and that Jesus is the Savior of mankind, but I don't think that people who disagree or believes something else is going to burn in a fiery pit of hell. I don't know or pretend to know anyone's heart. If they feel at peace and content with their concept or lack of concept of God, it's not my place to judge. We all have our own paths in life, and I certainly have no business telling someone that theirs is wrong. I wouldn't want someone doing that to me. I really just tend to strongly disagree on theology and practice with the typical evangelical mega-church, TBN religion that I grew up under. It messed up my concept of God for the first 18 years of my life, and I'm just starting to come out from under it.
