I don't understand religion?

okay so I have only been to church a few times with my friends because my mom is relious but she never took me to church because she did like the kind of people that go there not that everyone is like this but she said that a lot of people that were very rude mean people would go to church and just because they went to church they were a good person. and I get kind of like god and stuff and I believe in god but the rest just confuses me and I don't know what most of it even means so could someone like kind of explain to me this stuff in a way I can understand

There's a lot to explain. If you want to learn more I recommend that you read the bible and figure out if you truly believe in those stories. If you don't, you should do some more searching. Look into other religions, look into other ideas... whatever suits you, whatever makes the most sense to you, believe in that.

Personally, I'm an agnostic atheist, but I only came to that conclusion after a lot of searching and looking into other religions. Good luck!

Find the religion that fits your beliefs, not the other way around. You don't even have to belong to any organized religion to believe in the existence of god. If this religion confuses you, and you cannot come to accept it, don't.

If you believe a god then you really shouldn't have to sacrifice your time or do whatever it is you do, I thought gods were understanding (according to what I know), but you should be able to express religion in your own way

JJ21 saying the truth.
So I advice you to the religion of Islam.
So I advice you to those who believed in the Oneness of Allah the Islamic Monotheism, and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah: verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.
God sys in Quran:
Say (O Muhammad): "Verily, my (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
Words I love to Conclude.
It is time to find out about Islam. It is time to find out about the truth by using your own Mind.
A Time for Thought.
A Time for Change.
A Time for Action.

You don't have to understand religion. God wants you to know Him, not religion.

If you aren't sure don't let people pressure you into their personal religion. There are a lot of different ones and I'm sure one fits you but don't let pushy people trying to push you into theirs scare you into Atheism when it sounds like you believe in God.

Hey doll. Ok so as a Christian I have a few tips for you.
1. Jesus loves you 2. Just because people go to church doesn't make them a " good person" 3. As a Christian I encourage you to dig deep into yourself and think about if this is what you want deep in your heart. In order for you to understand things and want to learn about God you have to want it in your heart. I know things are confusing , even I get confused. Now I'm not here to throw my faith in your face, but let me tell you something, I found that out of all the other "religions" out there, becoming a Christian is one of the best decisions I made. Yeah people will make fun of me, yeah people will say rude things about it, but what matters to me is my relationship with Christ. So I will pray for you to come to a saving knowledge of Christ and that you will have a never ending thirst for him, and you will learn and understand what his love letter (bible) has to say.

If you want to talk or need to talk to The Lord talk to him you don't need to go to church to do that. He will hear you where ever you are.

Religion is a thought device that is designed to make war, violence, hatred and division among people. That is all.

It's very confusing because it's a big load of lies. Man wrote all those things to control people. Everyone has different reasons for going to church.

Don't look for religion - religion will find you. Not like when those guys knock on the door Saturday morning (that's religion ambushing you), but truly find you like those images of Jesus on your burnt toast, or a potato that looks like Moses.

I'm between religions myself right now, but I am waiting for one that leaves my Sundays open (I'm very busy on Sundays), and one where the God can kill his own enemies and doesn't need humans to help. Oh yah - plus, my religion will not insult people of other religions - it gets along with all others, because I have friends of different faiths and I'd hate to lose them.

I'll let you know when I find it! (Or it finds me LOLZ).

A troll I think, Phil. Her account is already closed. Full marks for an original answer, though.

Many people are just like you; lost and confused and need answers to life's questions. This can be frustrating so I understand what you're going through. It's so convenient and comforting to know that the Bible answers all of the questions you may have.
Many people go to church and claim that that's all they need to be good people, yet they don't practice what they preach, or they don't preach at all. Here is a link that will help you understand the Bible better:

http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/bible-teach/is-this-what-god-purposed/
The book is called "What Does The Bible Really Teach?" And it answers all of the questions you may have. I'm always available to help you to understand anything also.

Hope I helped :)

In short:
God created man(to live on earth forever) to show His endless love to. Man sinned. Death followed sin. Man was separated from God. Satan stole ownership of the earth from Adam. God sent His son, Jesus to pay for the sin of Adam. He died, more than paid the penalty for us. Now, all we have to do is believe He was raised on the 3rd day and make Him Lord of our lives. Or, you can refuse Him and spend eternity separated from Him in a lake of fire.
