Do you think I'm Agnostic?

I believe there is a Creator, I’m just not sure we know that much about it. Some people say believe in God and the bible or you’ll go to hell, but I don’t want the reason for me believing in something to be fear. Maybe someday I’ll have a spiritual awakening and realize I believe everything in the bible, but since for now, I believe there is no way to know all those things, and that it contradicts science, BUT I still believe in a God or Creator we don’t know about, does that make me agnostic?
Like right now for instance, just thinking like that makes me think if I die, I’m going to go to hell, but doesn’t that mean I was believing for the wrong reasons..

  1. an agnostic is one who believes in god but that none of the religions have it correct in what they think god is. If you fall into that you are an agnostic

  2. yes it makes you agnostic, and do NOT let anyone tell you you’re christian or catholic, you are your own section of people trying to find themselves a religion, or debunk religion.

  3. You are not agnostic. Agnostics usually will say “Maybe there is a god, maybe there is not. Since there is no way of knowing, lets move on with our lives.”
    You seem to believe there one god, so you would be a monotheist. Since you do not seem to want to commit to any specific branch of monotheism (Christianity, Judiasm, Islam), I don’t think we could classify you any more than monotheist.

  4. it does make you agnostic as you acknowledge taht we dont really know much about this god.
    i also like your stance that you wont accept a religion just to avoid hell. more people need to have the backbone to realize thats actually the only reason they believe in the bible and worship god/jesus. brainwashing and fear.

  5. I believe you’re exploring right now and that is perfectly all right. Too many succumb to religious fervor due to fear. And you are right, that is the wrong reason for believing in a religion. I recently read The Age Of Reason by Thomas Paine the American patriot. He articulated many ideas that I agreed with. You can download it free from Google Books.

  6. The main thing is, do you really want the truth with all your heart. If you do, it will be made available to you. If you are just playing games, it will not.
    God only reveals himself to those who are sincere. He does not waste his time with someone until they are. Most people will die and never know the truth until it is too late.

  7. JJ – Nobody needs to label themselves something. Doing that just opens yourself up to criticism from other groups that claim they have all the answers (such as fundamentalist Christian groups).
    I don’t know how old you are, but I assume you’re still in school at some level. My advice is to keep an open and questioning mind, and to study hard especially the sciences. The scientific method is the way that intelligent, open minded people search for answers about how things got to be the way they are. Now, not all of us ( few of us) are scientists, but the findings of science are published in newspapers, magazines, and on-line for all to see, and for all to question. Scientific theories can change or be modified as new evidence is found to justify the change.
    Some people claim that ‘God’ is the sum total of all the laws of nature at work that got us to where we are now. This, to me, is as good a definition of ‘God” as there is.
    Do not believe in something just because you are afraid of “going to hell” if you don’t. If there is one thing I’m completely sure of, it’s that there is NO such thing as hell. If on your deathbed, you are satisfied that you always in your life tried to do the right thing, and that you were never mean to anyone or anything (or, if you were, that you realize it and are sorry for it), then you will die at peace. And this is what I believe is heaven.

  8. Bet you are a teenager and that education has grown your intellect to recognize the truth but you are still struggling with it!!
    Acceptance of a supernatural claim tends to promote cooperative social relationships. This communication demonstrates a willingness to accept, without skepticism, the influence of the speaker in a way similar to a child’s acceptance of the influence of a parent. By encouraging this kind of behavior where the most intense social relationships occur it facilitates the lack of skepticism and deters more open minded thinking.
    They are christian, Muslim or the other religions depending where they were born simply because they were indoctrinated by their parents as very young children. They will go on to indoctrinate their own children and those will go on to indoctrinate their grandchildren!!
    Atheists have the intellect to see through the conditioning and escape into the real world!!
    Agnostics have the intellect to see through the conditioning but lack the courage to throw of the conditioning entirely.
    Sadly Christians are still held firmly prisoner by the self perpetuating brainwashing!!
    You KNOW it is true so why fight it?!!
