    Oh dear , I suppose you believe in Heaven & Hell ?

    There maybe good religious folk but there's always someone making plenty of cash at the end of the day , I'd love to know how much land the Church of England owns all obtained through fear , if you're a non believer you're going to hell , become a member & make a donation & that could all be changed .

    A guy on the pensioners table at work pays 10% of his wages to his Church , what a mentalist.

    Why do you think most of the Churches are empty these days ?

    Because people have seen through the BS & hypocrisy !

    I believe there are different places people go to yes. Unfortunately you will always get people trying to exploit people, that’s life and it isn’t confined to religion. As I said the church has done many bad things and religion as we know it won’t be pure.

    Father, As we gather together today, we remember the supreme sacrifice of our beautiful King, the Lord Jesus Christ. Led like a lamb to the slaughter, clothed in humility and grace, he willing offered himself to death so that we might live forever. We are truly thankful for the extent of his love, stretched out on a cruel wooden cross. We dwell on the pain he bore for us and are truly grateful for the forgiveness that he offers. As we worship and praise now, help us to live in the wonder of this goodness and marvel at his endless grace. Amen.

    Just for today I’m running a service which is completely confidential. I’m doing confession for people. Just PM me and we will go from there. Completely confidential and will only be between me, the other person and God will bare witness.

    Yes and likewise earlier Greek/Roman Stoicism and Platonism philosophic traditions influenced and contributed towards, for example, the development of Christian ethics and theology.

    Confession. Last time I was in church, bar weddings, christenings or funerals, I was still wired on two pills from the night before. Took a wander in on my tod, sat at the back and looked in wonder. Went and got the bread too, but Im not even baptised, which means I'm bollocksed apparently?

    Not at all. You were obviously on the wrong path at the time. Seek forgiveness and you shall be granted it. People have done far worse, including the church.

    Been there and done it a thousand times. Good times and bad times were had, but the party doesn’t last forever. I struggle with life at times, and struggle to do fun. Still trying to fully find contentment.

    As my name suggests, although raised a Catholic,I haven’t been prone to religious believe for decades. However present circumstances has got me praying to all the mainstream Gods. :(

    I’m presently on the lookout for some lesser known ones to add to the list, so any suggestions would be welcome.

    Thanks. :thumb

    I've gone full tilt and now seek them times again because the high is worth it. Whats better, (ignoring the current bollocks we're in), going for your shopping on a Saturday and being bored to tears or going out and getting wankered with the lads. Easy choice. Pick yours
