Belief in God

The God Piece

Gary Nelson | Posted 09.11.2014 | Religion
Gary Nelson

My view of God is simple. If there is a source of the most beautiful energy that we can see and feel which transcends our earthly existence, than the essence of that energy is God. Is the Bible the living word of God? I think it might have been centuries ago but we live in a different time now.

Alex Kip | Posted 08.19.2014 | Religion

I have to admit after Deepak had spoken about cosmic consciousness, the big bang theory, and how we're all made out of stars, my mind was left trying to comprehend it all. Right now, maybe it's a little beyond comprehension.

Definitely, I'm a Spiritual Girl With Both Light and Dark Roots

There's no right or wrong, to each his or her own, and there's little to no judgment. So whether you believe in a creator, have a different religion or are an atheist -- it really doesn't bother me. I'm OK with you, and what you choose to believe in or not believe in

Why I Believe This Image Is Really 'God,' Not God-zilla

I have to say I'm more than amused by the collection of answers received on what other people think they see in this image of clouds. I've heard it all.

I realize that some may see this as a sign, an act of God if you will. There will be others, those who will doubt. And that's okay. But one thing's for sure, and that's how remarkably clear this image in the sky really is.

"Here he comes, here he comes..." the collective thought hovered in the air as hundreds of spiritual seekers filled the Marble Collegiate Church in NYC.

What Is Strength?

Umar Zulqarnain | Posted 07.29.2014 | Religion
Umar Zulqarnain

Strength is to let go, to let be, to simply exist. Strength is to know that we are nothing and that we have no strength. It is to know that strength is in God and is not acquired but provided.

What Is Strength?

Umar Zulqarnain | Posted 07.28.2014 | Religion
Umar Zulqarnain

We try to display ourselves as strong, independent beings, as confident and un-phased by the events around us. In reality, it is often a show, a facade, a cry for attention rather than an element of fortitude.

An Open Letter to G-d

Mimi Minsky | Posted 09.16.2014 | Religion
Mimi Minsky

This letter is a reminder; a reminder for myself. A reminder that there is a bigger picture than the picture we're certain we've seen before. This here is reminder that there is more to life than dollar bills and shiny cars. A reminder that we still have so much more living left to do.

What Do You Really Believe?

When was the last time you challenged your own beliefs? When I work with couples to design their wedding ceremonies, I always ask them how they were raised in terms of religion and spirituality and where they are now in those terms in their lives.

Put On Your Armor of God

Antoinette Tuff | Posted 08.18.2014 | Religion
Antoinette Tuff

Here is how I've learned to control how I react: I take a pause and put on the armor of God. Reacting emotionally means we are allowing the situation, or other people, to dictate how we feel and how we act. And if we do that, we will never come out of a bad situation victorious.

On the Journey Towards Sincerity

Umar Zulqarnain | Posted 07.27.2014 | Religion
Umar Zulqarnain

While working on our own sincerity, we have to realize that the reality is, we will rarely meet sincere people. We will rarely meet people who will genuinely step out of themselves to attempt to see things from our perspective and act accordingly.

Is It Necessary To Believe In God To Be Religious?

The Huffington Post | Antonia Blumberg | Posted 05.01.2014 | Religion

Peaceful Words of God

It is important that we bring the words of God into our lives, because if we don't, we may only hear the words of the enemy.

I thought this film would be about a 9-year-old kid dreaming about heaven and speaking about it across the country. Boy was I wrong!

Cancer: Heaven or Hell?

Lisa Masters | Posted 06.20.2014 | Women
Lisa Masters

We are all going to die. Everyone knows that. Having cancer just makes it a little bit more real. I am not a religious person. I know that the majority of the world population do believe in God, heaven and hell and/or some sort of afterlife. That's ok.

While I would never discourage anyone from participating in religious service with a congregation, it's not about a place -- it's about a purpose. Please know that God is patient and always accessible to you no matter your environment or circumstances.

A Plea to Stop Underestimating Purim: The Most Modern Jewish Holiday

Rabbi Jordie Gerson | Posted 05.11.2014 | Religion
Rabbi Jordie Gerson

Though we don't often speak of ourselves this way, we as American Jews live in the diaspora. We live outside the land of Israel. Though we may have risen to great heights outside of the Land of Israel, we are always, in some sense, strangers in a strange land.

Spiritual and Religious

Religion is a tool that performs a service for us, something we utilize for our own spiritual development. Unfortunately, we sometimes end up getting used by the tool! But that's not the fault of religion.

Holy Doubt

We sow the seeds of fundamentalism whenever we pretend our representations are real. It is a mistake of logic to apply literalism to something that can only be apprehended symbolically.

Atheism: The New Fundamentalism?

A fundamentalist is unwilling to consider the unsettling possibility that the universe is more complex, mysterious, and multi-dimensional than anything our symbol systems, descriptions and analyses can apprehend.
