PostSubject: Your Religion and Religious Tolerance.   Tue Sep 08, 2009 2:35 pm

OKAY THIS IS A TOUCHY SUBJECT SO, IN ALL CAPS, LET ME EXPLAIN THIS: I WILL NOT ALLOW FLAMING, INSULTS, OR ANY FORM OF RAGE IN THIS THREAD. I WILL ASK A MOD PERSONALLY TO REMOVE IT.

The purpose of this thread is simply to say what your religion is, describe it, and tell us why you chose it. I don't think debating your religion here would be a good idea. It's in serious discussions because it is a mature topic. SO ACT MATURE.

I also think this thread should teach some religious tolerance by helping others learn and understand your religion. Ask questions, poke and prod. Be considerate.

I'll start by saying that I'm a Buddhist.
Basics: http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/5minbud.htm
Four noble truths: http://www.thebigview.com/buddhism/fourtruths.html
Eightfold Path: http://www.thebigview.com/buddhism/eightfoldpath.html
The precepts: http://www.thebigview.com/buddhism/precepts.html
Meditation: http://www.thebigview.com/buddhism/meditation.html
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhism

I chose Buddhism because it allows me to choose my own path, make my own choices. I also agree with many of the morals in Buddhist teaching. Really those are my only reasons.

Please ask me any questions you have.

... Could you both please provide some info on those.
What exactly is a Satanist? Do you worship the devil or just revere him? Is it just the Christian devil?

What do Christians believe? What are the different belief systems under Christianity?

Theistic Satanism (also known as Spiritualor TraditionalSatanism) is the worship or reverence of Satan as a deity. It comprises several viewpoints, and may include a belief in magic, which is manipulated through ritual. It may also include the usage of meditation and self expansion. TraditionalSatanists will often find inspiration from older sources (preceding the Satanic Bibleof the 1960s), such the 1862 book Satanism and Witchcraft.One group that falls under the definition of Theistic Satanism are Reverse Christians; this is sometimes used as a disparaging term by other Theistic Satanists and is embraced to a lesser or greater extent by the groups given this label. Groups called Reverse Christiansare said to practice what Christians claim Satanists do, such as performing black masses.

Specific Satanism I am Luciferianism.

Luciferianism can be understood best as a belief system that venerates the essential characteristics that are affixed to Lucifer.Luciferianism is identified by some people as an auxiliary of Satanism, due to the popular identification of Lucifer with Satan. Some Luciferians accept this identification or consider Lucifer as the light bearer aspect of Satan, and thus could properly be called Satanists. Others reject it, arguing that Lucifer is a more positive ideal than Satan. They are inspired by the ancient myths of Egypt, Rome and Greece, Gnosticism and traditional Western occultism.

Wow, that looks very interesting, I'll google more later when I feel like it.

What's the satanist view on the afterlife?

The image of the Theistic Satanist as a worshipper of the Christian view of Satan is perhaps the most incorrect possible view. Indeed, so few such individuals exist as to essentially render it little more than an urban legend.One of the more common Theistic Satanistic churches/groups /whatever is the Temple of Sutekh (Set), which is essentially a Khemetic (Egyptian) belief system focused on (obviously) the Egyptian God, Sutekh. A similiar group are the Lokeans, who worship the chaos deities of the Norse Pantheon (most prominantly, you might guss, Loki).It is important to note that ancient pantheons were NOT perceived as countered forces of Good and Evil, but generally rather of Order and Chaos, both of which are absolutely necessary for a correctly functioning here-and-now and here-after.

Christianity tends to take beliefsquite seriously. The early fathers and councils carefully distinguished between "orthodoxy" from "heresy" in an effort to preserve what they saw as the true Christian message. In the Middle Ages, established doctrine was carefully safeguarded, and in the 16th century, reformers called for the stripping away of superfluous doctrines and emphasized true faith as the only requirement for salvation. And Christian beliefs remain important today: the many denominations within Christianity center primarily around matters of doctrine rather than practice. Given the great historical attention that has been devoted to it, the 2,000 years' worth of available writing on its many subjects, and its sometimes complex philosophical arguments, Christian doctrine can be an intimidating subject to tackle, especially for the beginner. The following articles therefore attempt to summarize the general consensus of Christian beliefs on everything from God to the afterlife.

Phew, I simply couldn't be a part of the Christian religion because it felt like it was something so jumbled up over the years that no one knew what Christianity was anymore.

I'm a Catholic, but I don't go church every weekend like we're supposed to. Also I don't pray very often but I do believe in Jesus Christ. Smile

i'm a Christan but a lot of people say i don't act like one witch i think is 100% TRUE!

Hmm. What religions sound interesting to you? There's always agnostic (Not sure on the existence of god) or Atheist (No religion)

I'm Lutheran.

I am not really that religious and don't go to church, never have, but i do believe in an afterlife.

i don't really mind what a persons religion is and don't associate that with who they are and their personality.
