    I don't call my believe to be in any denomination.

    The problems is so many type of Churches in the US with different names but they all fall under Christianity, that is a religious denomination.

    I believe religious denominations are for main "religions" like Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism etc.

    But Christianity has become so divided in different subcategories is not funny.

    I am not a Christian believer, but I do believe in a creator of all things.

    So I guess I don't have a denomination per say.:grin:

    Red Cell, thanks. I saved that doorsofhope.com site. It might come in handy one day.
    To answer your question, what denomination am I, I guess the answer is none. I grew up attending Undenominational churches. They leaned toward Baptist. In fact I was Baptized in a Baptist church. My wife was raised Pentecostal, so we started going to Assembly of God. When the Preacher left to become a missionary in South America, we did not care much for the new one. We started going to an Undenominational one. Our attendance is currently spotty at best.

    I'm just going to assume that this test is bias.:?: I don't even know what the difference is between half of these christian religions.

    Spent the first 16 years of my life Mormon(I swear it wasn't my choice, I believe brainwashing was involved....) That was enough to realize that there is too much pressure to accept the idealism described in thier teachings; i.e. I found it all to be a social strata that operated only in the confines of itself with no acknowledgment of any one else. Maybe I'm just soured though, I do keep an open mind....

    The Bahai Faith is a religion that comes from the muslim faith, that's all I know about hope it helps.

    I don't belive in organised religion.

    That test exemplifies how subjective religious beliefs are.

    Question it all my friends.
     
  15. I am right now Non-Denominational Christian. I used to be a practicing Methodist.:cryb:

    My sister and I are the grandchildren of a wonderful Methodist minister who taught us to believe in each others goodness rather than a big bearded man in the sky .

    We are also the only grandchildren (out of 9) that are not baptized . My mom thought it best that we choose for ourselves when we had the mental faculty rather than force one path on us .

    Here are my top 9 from DLM's link ( I am suprised I have Quakers come in at #2) , they got scetchy after that....

    1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
    2. Liberal Quakers (95%)
    3. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (95%)
    4. Secular Humanism (87%)
    5. Neo-Pagan (76%)
    6. Theravada Buddhism (73%)
    7. New Age (72%)
    8. Mahayana Buddhism (69%)
    9. Taoism (65%)


    Unitarian is what I figured I WOULD have to be , sis joined the unitarians because she is a single mother in a same sex relationship and still wants her kids to be exposed to some type of spirituality without the same sex dogmas that are evident in most other religions .

    She says they pray " To whom it may concern"

    VERY HAPPY that I scored in 2 buddist categories , a humanistic , and the Tao of Poo !

    we are all connected , sad we can't get along...
