    The God of the bible.
    Heb 11:3
    3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
    (NKJ)

    Heb 11:6
    6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
    (NKJ)

    The key here is to diligently seek Him.

    Prov 2:1-6
    1 My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you,
    2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding;
    3 Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding,
    4 If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures;
    5 Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
    6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
    (NKJ)

    Prov 2:9
    9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path.
    (NKJ)

    Notice all the "ifs" and "Then".....🙂

    If you must pick a religion, then at least choose one that is not evangelical in nature.

    Choose the one of your parents. That seems to work for the vast majority of theists.

    I think religion is a poor choice. I define religion as a "manmade" form of worship. Just seek God with your whole heart! Pray and ask ..

    Thats the problem. I get duped into the religion of my parents, who were dupped by there parents, for centuries on in, since the start of religion, and everyone now believe in God because that is what they were grown up to believe.

    Please explain why your religion transcends being labeled a religion.

    You can't "know" that it's correct. It's something you take on "faith".

    Do you believe in the Bible?

    Why did you choose the Bible? Most people choose the religion that is closest to them first and then proceed to believe that it is the right one.

    Try resisting the urge to believe in the religions that are closest to the one in your society. It's embedded in you since birth so you are bound to be pre-conditioned to be partial into believing it or at least base your beliefs in it.

    You already have a religion: your own. You should develop your
    own thoughts on it, mull it out, then don't join ANY religion, keep it
    to yourself, you don't need anyone telling you what is the true path
    since only you know what is in your head. Everyone on the planet is
    on exactly the same footing here, nobody is any closer to the truth
    than you are, so follow your own ideas and stay away from any
    organized religion, that way you will be free to speculate and make
    decisions on your own without being coerced by outside speculators.

    all i believe is there is a God - Allah - Greater being or what ever some choose to call him - i have been to hell and back my friend like many others and from experience i now believe there is a God out there. I do not follow my family religion as they do - i have searched a long time and taken many paths and found what i have now - i judge no one - i try very hard to be as humble as possible - i fail alot but i go by the following " i dont look back - i dont look forward - i look within for here i find him"
