      In the last couple of years, I’ve been in touch with people from different religions, even all are based on Christian faith. (Jehova’s witnesses, spiritualists, christians, presbiterians, baptists, and mormons)

      Recently, I considered the posibility of changing my religion (Catholic) to mormon, but as I started learning about, I relised I really don’t know as much as I needed about the Bible and what God really wants from me.

      I believe in God of course but trough this learning process I’m living I began to really meet God and I found out I don’t know much about my own religion. Even more, sometimes I think is not about being Catholic, Mormon or baptist, it’s about doing what’s right.

      Have you gone through something like this? How was your experience?

        • Hi Vera and Welcome to Fab40!

          I was raised Catholic but somehow always went to Baptist churches with my friends.
          I can’t/won’t say that I am a religion expert because I am not. I have my faith and my beliefs and I read the bible. I do not however belong to a religion or a church.

          After having my kids in a Christian school and following their rules, seeing the cliques, judgements and interpretations I decided it was better for ME to not belong to a formal and organized religion.

          My faith can’t be shaken and I do know the difference between right and wrong so I move forward......

        • I think you posted a very interesting topic and im so glad you did.
          The reason is this...
          No matter what religion you are there is only one bottom line when thinking of ones spirituality, and it is all about spending your life to your fullest capacity, being kind to others, and that Life is a series of learning lessons we have from birth to death. No one is graded on her spirituality, just BE THE BEST HUMAN BEING you can be in this lifetime leave seedlings of kind humanity on to others, kindness love and generosity and LOVE most of all.
          I dont mean to sound cliche just the way i see things in life i guess and theres so much truth to just being a GOOD PERSON and it will follow you wherever you go and spread :)

        • I grew up in a Baptist household, went to Catholic schools and married a into a Catholic family.  I became Catholic and raised my oldest that way.  I have had my children baptised but in the last 10 years I have come to believe that the only way to know God is to know yourself.  God is in everything you are and you are everything he is.  So by showing love and compassion to your fellow man then you are being God like.  I find it hard to read the Bible manly because it was written by man, man changed it to benefit man.  Books were left out, changed and somewhere along the way I believe that it lost its true meaning.  When I think I have lost my way I pray and ask for guidance.

        • estatic I was raised catholic and went to a catholic school. up until a little over a year ago. then our family started going to a methodist church! It was the most amazing thing and has brought us joy and I think making us better people and a couple. But I also think it is what you take away from your experiences at services. being a spiritual person but didnt really have a relationship with God but always was a caring and giving person due to the fact that I always believe what comes around goes around. but since I have been going to this church and since I have some remarkable ladies here I have now began my relationship with God again....Its really nice.
          you have to be happy no matter what denomination you call yourself then you can have a wonderful relationship with God or your higher power.
          I wish you well.
          and welcome to te most amazing, caring, site you will ever find. This is a home for alot of us.
          Cristen
