I think that every major religion in the world holds a piece of the truth. If they all started acting in the manner they say they should, then maybe we could find the real truth.
Personally...I believe in a higher entity. Right now that idea is with belief in God. However, I don't label myself 'Christian' because I don't agree with some of the Christian beliefs. I agree with the beliefs of the Baptist denomination the most, though. I was raised Baptist. My mother was raised Catholic but at 17 broke away, my dad was raised Baptist.
I don't believe in the traditional fire and brimstone hell, though. I believe that if you die and your not worthy of God and the light, your soul stays here on Earth.
When it comes to the Islam world's anger at the Pope's statements, here's what I have to say:
1) The Pope quoted the writing that stated the Islam is violent and evil.
2) The Islam responds how? By violence!
What do you believe and why do you believe it?
first of all,pardon my English
am a Muslim and proud of it
i believe in god and god created the whole universe
i believe in heaven and hell coz its unfair if the bad guys got away with their actions without punishment
regarding the pope's statements muslims didnt respond by violence ...the media had given a wrong picture of islam by using "MIND CONTROL"
do u really buy that 9/11 and osama bin laden crap
9-11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB (do ur homework)
since u were a lil child u see all these movies about arabs and muslims with their camels,shootguns,wives.The media has BRAINWASHED you.
do u have any idea how many kids were killed during the war on iraq,
how many women were raped.
do u know GAZA (google if u dont) .
am so sick of the stereotyping and calling us terrorists while the REAL terrorists are being called heros.
Muslims are not bad they r just like any other ppl.
we also believe in the bible and Jesus.
all the respect
