For the Christians in the Forum, I was curious as to what denomination you identify with.

If you want to be like Jesus you need to stand up to religion.  Not start a new one.

All that indecisiveness just dilutes the religion!!!  Makes y'all look more confused than a baby trying to work calculus.  :? 

It's high time to admit religion is busted!  It's the only way to me to honor the sacrifice Jesus made.

That's it!  That's all you got.  Where's my thanks.  That's OK, I understand.  I am a much much more intimidating opponent than non belief is.  No Christian here has the nerve to challenge me.  I know I'm throwing humility out the door here but I'm tired of Christians avoiding me. 

I am not trying to pick a fight, really I'm not.  I just want the opportunity to share my thoughts with you.  Come on man make Jesus proud!

Voting is closed, but I'd have to go "other".  I've attended many types of churches, and have found very little difference between so many of them.  Minor doctrinal differences, but not a lot of serious disagreements on core issues of salvation, divinity of Jesus, etc.
