Are we supposed to select "Christian" as well if we've selected "Catholic?"

Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

I have no idea what to believe. I figure, I'll figure out when I do. No point in wasting life trying to figure out what happens after, when eventually you'll find out anyway.

I just try to be the best person I can be, so that I can feel good with myself.

Well, I am Christian but have strong beliefs about this that may oppose the beliefs of many Christians. I believe in God, Jesus, etc. but I don't think the Bible should be taken at face value or really put much stock in it at all. I also don't believe that God should be the center of one's life. I think if you're a good person you'll go to heaven if you believe in God or not

Catholic.

There are certain ideas which I strongly disagree with, I don't think this really matters. Honestly, I think religion and spirituality should fulfill for you whatever you want them to. I do get comfort from having my faith and I try to live as well as I can and to be a good person.

In the end, aren't they kinda the same?

First, I'm Christian, Pentecostal to be exact.

Agnostic is kind of like saying you have a religion. Something along the lines of not knowing whether God exists or not because you think it can't be proven or disproved, however even though you can't be sure you still live either saying He exists or He doesn't exist.

Undecided in my opinion is deciding if you agree more with, say, Mormon, Christian, Catholic, or Wiccan beliefs and so on.

I'm Agnostic.

Undecided would be like, acknowledging that there is a higher power but not knowing what it is/what you believe it is.
Agnostic, on the other hand, is believing that there is no way to know if there is or is not something out there.
Agnostic for some people can even mean not caring whether there is a higher power of some sort, or being indifferent.

I am a Agnostic Protestant.

I was christened a C of E Protestant and was raised that way. My family are actually not religious at all but I went to church until I was about 7.

I am now Agnostic but I am an Agnostic leaning more towards Religion than Atheism.

I would like to believe in God but I need proof (I am a scientist at heart.). I do believe in some sort of Higher Power but I am yet to find it.

I said I'm undecided because while I'm technically Baptist I'm not entirely sure I believe in God all the time.

I am agnostic. While I do believe in a "Higher spirit" it is not of any description that any religion has of this higher being. But I 100% believe in spirits (Or ghosts if you want to call them that). Another reason is because there is (No offense) no proof that there is or that there is not a "God"
