Not a typical Christian


I believe that people shouldn’t cheat on their spouses.
I believe that women should have the right to choose what they wish to do with their bodies.
I believe non-Christians can go to Heaven.
I believe even the Baptized Christians can still sin and can still go to Hell.
I don’t believe that Baptism is required to get into Heaven.
I believe in tolerance.
I believe in praying.
I believe that biology and theology can be combined in a sane and logical way. (I believe in evolution and the Big Bang theory.)
I don’t believe that people have to go to church every Sunday (or whatever day they are supposed to go).
I believe that everyone has a soulmate.
I believe that animals have souls.
I believe that your inner spirit can be passed from generation to generation.
I believe in the traditional Christian Godhead…
I also believe that there are (lesser) gods.
I believe that some people have the power to see events from the future.
I believe people should follow the Golden Rule.
I believe that forgiveness is essential.
I believe that we should respect the environment.
I don’t believe in war.
I believe that Christianity has some beliefs that are very anti-women. Women tend to get the blame for things that are equally the guys’ faults.
I believe Eve has gotten too much of the blame for the Creation stuff. (I also think that Delilah got a bad rep for no good reason.)
I believe that the “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil” was actually a fig tree and not an apple one.
I believe in angels.
I don’t believe in violence, which I’ve already stated.
I believe that all life is sacred.
I believe that I’m no better than the richest man or the poorest man.
I believe that it is our obligation to take care of one another in whatever way we can.
I believe that violence/war/terrorism in the name of God is wrong.
I believe in karma.
I believe that there can be a Heaven and Hell with reincarnation.
I believe reincarnation can at least be proven to a scientific point.
I believe that most, if not all, of the religions of the world come from the same deity.
I don’t believe in owning guns, as part of my not believing in violence.
I don’t believe in drinking.
I don’t believe in smoking.
I don’t believe in doing drugs.
I believe that there are mistakes in the Bible.
I believe that extrabiblical gospels may actually be divinely inspired. I also believe that some gospels, i.e. the Gospel of Thomas, were kept out by the committees that “formed” the Bible even though they were just as worthy of being in as any of the other Gospels and Books.
I don’t believe in organized religions.
