Many people think about God in different ways.. We've had several threads on here about God. Everyone has a different understanding of God. I don't think God is separate from us; we are contained in it.

For me, not at all. I was brought up catholic and once we hit about 16 my brothers and I were let loose to do what we want.

I have to say I think as I have gotten older, I actually have a bit of an issue with organised religion and the church. I think I have seen too many bad people hiding behind God and the church. That and when it becomes your world and people then start trying to convert you.

That said, one of the best men I know, my old Religious Education teacher (who I’m still in touch with and is 84) is very religious.

My partner and her whole family are very religious and we’re generally ok, except the time she told me that I HAD to go to church with her and didn’t see the big deal about me going.

I guess God or Higher Power or The One Consciousness, the Universe, etc., is important to me, yes. Because my whole idea of spirituality, my understanding, through my own personal journey in that area, gives meaning or a rationale to the sufferings I/we endure on a daily basis. So, yes, God is important to me.

Yes God is very important to me. I couldn’t get through what is happening to me otherwise.
Drugs nearly destroyed me… most counselling, in the past, further deepened the problem. Which I believe is spiritual anyway. Least for me it is.

The struggle …and all the tried and tested routes exhausted then finally I thought to myself,’ do know what, I will give God a trial.’ lol.

Love God but be aware of those in charge of religious establishments. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Be aware of sheikhs, priests, rabbis, and monks. When they exchange their religious services for money, that’s a sign. When they tell you to live humbly and live poor when they fly in a personal jets to spread the word of god, that’s a big big sign. When they tell you the only way to God is through them, run away. When they ask you to prey for healing while they get treated in the best hospitals by the best doctors, they are liars. When you see them having servants to do their house work while they don’t do anything, they are liars. When they tell you that prayers cost money, have no doubt that they have nothing to do with god. When they build big Churches, mosques, Temples with golden domes while there are shantytowns around them, rise up and put a stop to it. The list is endless.

I love god but I don’t associate with any religious leader until the rise of the savior which’s a common belief in almost all religions.
