After getting sucked into the "Creation" thread, I started wondering what people's beliefs are not about creationism or politics, but about religion itself This thread of for people to state their religious (or non-religious) beliefs. Feel free to be brief (ie "I am catholic") or, alternatively, to explain what you believe and the reasons for it.
I ask that people not use this thread for bashing each other's viewpoints. This is a thread to learn and broaden one's views, not a thread for arguing. I hope that the administration will help me out by deleting posts of they violate the spirit of the thread (assuming people are interested in actually posting).
I'll do mine first- briefly. If there is interest I might do a longer one later on.
I grew up Lutheran and currently attend a bretheren church. I would classify my beliefs as those of a somewhat liberal evangelical (ie CS Lewis, Tony Campolo, Philip Yancey).
