    actually after the voting jop made
    sure thanks to him
    i think that there is a missing question
    part me if i asked it

    how did you enter this religion or choose it
    did you inherite it with others things you inherit from your parents ??
    did you search untill you reach it ??
    did you take it just by a name or religion in your ID?
    did you ..............?

    and if you are etheist tell us your story and your thoughts and do you believe in your religion and think that its your way to the right

    lets give each other our thought and believes
    and see how other think about other
    and say why and how every one choosed his religion
    with love, we dont attack any one believes we just wanna know and learn from each others

    The gist of arabian's post is: "How did you choose your religion?" A great question.

    I was raised in a Christian home until my parents split. My dad and stepmom were non-practicing Christians, so I stopped practicing. I never stopped believing, but I certainly stopped caring.

    Then came college. One of the first things I did was subscribe to a good porno mag - making me a pretty popular guy in the barracks. And I swore just like everyone else, and pretty much acted like everyone else did. But then I got invited to a men's group that met each night in one of the classrooms. The guys who were organizaing it were doing a men's prayer group. Anyway, my friend and I went, out of curiousity more than anything else. Anyway, after a few days, I realized that I either had to totally turn my back on God and Christianity, or I had to accept it and live by it. I chose the latter. That was 9 1/2 years ago. I'm very glad I made the choice.

    If he is asking why we choose our faith i guess thats simple.

    I studied it out and then went to God and asked if it was true. God revealed to me that the scriptures were true and that Jesus is the Christ and His Son among alot of other things. If God hadn't given me the witness i doubt id believe it because i have to be honest with myself and more importantly honest with God and id look for His truth where He revealed it.
