So here it is. I'm not popular. I'm extremely introverted. I need to become extroverted as I'm going into teaching. I haven't had a great life. I am not what you call very sociable. I know this may not add up or seem strange but I'm giving religion a shot. You know why God has created me. I'm no way a jehovah I'm a Christian through and through. May even decide to become a Catholic as i want to release my sins and repent. I know this is unwise and probably Ott but I have got no other place to turn to. Do i believe in god? Yes because there has to be a higher power than us. So just wondering if anyone had any opinions on this subject or any guidence. Thanks

Religion is so beautiful and yes I totally believe in God too because if u look around how can such beautiful creation be a coincidence?

Do what ur heart tells u and explore other religions too so you end up where u feel best

Hope it works out

I respect that, one thing I will warn you especially more recently is you will get a lot of hate from a few people. Be careful about it, but they're just verbal and not harmful. Just be happy with your own choices!

Thank you. Of course but you know I'm not going to become a preacher or anything. Just like soul search and everything. People hate me at uni already so I can't lose any dignity hahs

I mean what do you want from this thread? If you believe there's a higher power and you like Christianity best then congrats, be a Christian. It may give you hope, and church is a great place to socialise, but don't expect it to be the magic cure. You need to work on yourself, you can't just expect God do all the work for you.

Hi, I wouldn't recommend turning to religion due to having no where else to go. Religion is no joke and simply going into it because you have no where to go is the wrong decision. You turn to a religion because you know that it is the one true religion. Joining a religion for other reasons will waste your time practicing things that are lies. From what I read you believe in God. I would recommend researching other religions apart from Christianity and then coming to the conclusion of which religion holds the truth, because 1 has to.

I believe there is a higher power too - God. Are you convinced of christianity being the one true message that God sent?

I respect that A LOT. It takes a lot of courage to think of something and then act upon it. I encourage you to read up on various religions and see which one you think makes the most sense. Imo islam is my religion and I believe nothing compares to it's teachings at all! Give it a go if you want, I'll be more than happy to help on anything at all that could make this journey easier for you by providing knowledge or just normal buddy talk support

You see i believe there is God but again I'm not sure whether it is the one true message. Of course Christianity is huge but what about other faiths. Is there just one god is there multiple. I just don't know and i want to see because there has to be.

That is likely to give you more issues and it seems like you want to turn to religion to ‘fix’ you. You would be better off joining other groups and becoming more confident socially.

Yeah I feel you it can be very overwhelming considering the vast number of different religions out there. Again, I suggest reading into Islam. At least as one of your many choices I'm sure

Yes! Exactly the point I'm trying to make. Don't go into Christianity if you're not sure if it the truth. Find the truth and follow that. Personally, I'm a Muslim. Our core beliefs are that there is one God who sent all the prophets e.g. Adam عليه السلام, Musa(Moses) عليه السلام, Isa(Jesus) عليه السلام and finally the last messenger to humanity Mohammed ﷺ. We believe in Isa عليه السلام (Jesus) and the book that was revealed to him. However we don't believe that the book was the Bible as the Bible has been changed and altered by man. I advise you search for the truth and not for a place to feel better as just feeling better is subjective but the truth is based on evidence and not experience. Thank you for reading

So sad that people take advantage of other people who are questioning about joining a religion, but not necessarily know which one to join. It goes to show the true extent of religion.

Consider all viewpoints to the same amount of rigour (if you can), then make a decision. Others have already said to not merely join a religion because there’s an expectation of a magic cure to your life problems.

You have a very exciting opportunity to explore a variety of religious belief systems and can acquire a lot of knowledge of many different perspectives & religious traditions.
I've been studying religion, a variety of religious theologies and the history of religious sects & movements for over 2 decades.
Been to so many different churches, temples, other places of worship and read translations of plenty of religious texts.
It's a fascinating area and there is always so much more to learn.
Good luck!

I guess i get what you mean but you see i havr always been fascinated with religion in a way. I know it's not a fix and it shouldn't be just a fix but you see when I am low i feel that God or some higher power is there to guide me. Not trying to be preachy or anything but I have felt that I have been given a chance to change my ways by seeking guidance
