How Do You Imagine God?
God in America and USA WEEKEND Magazine are partnering to explore Americans' images of God.

How do you imagine God? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I imagine God as a type of energy in the physical form of a human. I happen to believe this because energy cannot be created or destroyed and neither can God. He is simply the only one of his kind and nothing/no one else can challenge him.

My Beliefs

My most powerful moment of belief was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Simply any time that something goes correctly or something happens when it seems as though it would be impossible to happen simply by luck.
My greatest moment of doubt was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Any time in which things seem to go terribly wrong in life and everything seems hopeless and lost.
My spiritual life means... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator It is a great deal to me because I know that without my faith I would be lost.
My spiritual role model is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator My grandma, she is probably one of the most God loving people I know and does everything possible to live a Christian life.
The tenet/practice/teaching I appreciate most about my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Jesus Christ died for my sins and therefore I am forgiven and will live eternally with him.

My Faith History

I was raised as ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator A Lutheran
Are your beliefs or practices different from your parents? If so, how and why? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator No

How I Practice My Faith

Where and when do you practice your faith? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator As often as I can.
Does your family practice more than one religion or faith? If so, how do you blend the traditions? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator No
How easy or difficult is it to live your faith? Why? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator It is difficult because in life we are always tempted to sin but we have to resist.

Religion & the Public Square

Should courses about religion be taught in public schools? Why or why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I believe that everyone should know God but if they don't want to than that is their choice. I think that it should be offered as an optional course.
Do you feel comfortable discussing your faith with others? Why/why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Yes. I am proud to represent my faith and share it with others and hopefully get them to have the same thoughts as I do on it.
