    I have chosen to end my belief that I am Christian. Good luck to Jesus Christ. Now the trouble I have comes from unseen spiritual/mind powers. I am under attack of some sort. This bothers me. I am also interested in Hinduism and like to joke around that dogs are Hindu. Cats are Moslem and horses are atheists

    I'm suspicious of newbies who start 'I renounce religion' threads.

    I thought you were just suspicious of everyone that mentions religion.

    Course, I'm kind of interested where the OP wants this thread to go because I really have no clue what to say to him. especially since i thought he was starting his own religion but now seems to not be.

    If this is a serious post and not flame bait then I think you need to speak to your doctor. Seriously, sounds like you've got something going on there.

    Just when I thought that non Christians would be happy to have someone join them in their sorry state, you send them to a doctor for it. *Sigh*

    Hinduism teaches that all people are born Hindu or spiritual beings.
    We are all children of God. So this is consistent with being joined in Christ as one.
    There is no need to give up Christianity in order to study any other and all faiths.
    All expressions of God's truth join together as one in Christ to compile the bigger picture. Christ represents the central connection by Conscience that makes humanity one in truth and harmony, joining God and man, or heaven and earth.

    PS spiritual attacks and defenses are also taught in Christianity. I recommend the book "Healing" by Francis MacNutt (1999 or later) on demonic influence and deliverance through forgiving past generational sins or curses (what Buddhists/Hindus call karma). These methods of healing prayer have even helped a friend of mine to overcome spiritual attacks and obstacles so he could fulfill and follow his chosen path in Buddhism.

    Also, if you want an approach that includes Hindus, secular Gentiles, even atheists in Christian salvation, read the books "Gospel of Inclusion" or "God is Not a Christian" by Carlton Pearson. You don't have to give up Christianity to include other spiritual wisdom. In fact, keeping a central faith and focus in Christ helps you to discern and add another other knowledge from other sources where you can distinguish what is true and false.

    The only thing you have to give up is your fear, or else you can be manipulated by fear. The truth established by agreement in Christ or by conscience overcomes all fear and sets us all free. The real truth includes and unifies all other understanding from other sources.

    When you give up the false teachings or misperceptions of Christianity or any other religion, you open the door to receive the true meaning of Christ and all other ways also. Best wishes with that.

    Seriously. See your doctor. Tell him/her what you have said here. See what they have to say about it.

    Good luck.

    I enjoy your posts.
    However, try telling the God Fearing Christians in these parts not to fear.
