Not implying eternal damnation to buddists, if thats what your getting at partner. And im certainly friendly enough. Do what you will in life
Just relating my experience bud, not "thumping the bible"! Could i infer that this is the problem in discussing religion with atheists? Don read to deep into it, you go your way and i'll go mine.

We are all cops here and I have no gripe with you. As far as discussing religion with an Atheist I should maybe rephrase since I strongly dissagree with atheist who want to do stupid shit such as take "god" out of the pledge of allegiance, or "In God We Trust" off the money. That is just stupid and a waste of time. In my original post you will note that I said, I don't care what people believe as long as they stay off my doorstep with the pamphlets trying to get me to beleive what they want, or the gay pride parade where I am looked at like an asshole because I am married to a girl. I don't give a crap if your gay but don't try to make your political statement like I am wrong for not being gay myself, (I live in predominately gay area and I hate that time of year).
Anyway like I said religion and a thread like this always gets people fired up. Because I don't buy into the bible I always bump heads with someone when this conversation comes up. Your thing about if "I was willing to bet eternity on that" was like talking to a few born agains from the bible belt that I used to talk to when we were traveling the globe killing people and it all came down to our Christian belief V. there Jihad
I will hold the rest of my opinions to myself, sorry to offend you...

God is very important in my life. I am lucky enough to work in a small department and normally have the chance to attend church while on-duty. Although, I do admit that if God blessed me with a bright, sunny Sunday that means he intended for me to go forth and run traffic.

I was raised Catholic but have strayed away. I've gone other routes too. Like Buddhism, and did the tribal walk when I was younger. For now I'm lost, I don't practice anything. Mostly because people that i meet like christians or catholics try to push it on me and it always starts like this, "What church do you go too?" I don't. "Then maybe you should come out to my church on Sunday, I'll pick you up at" Screw that, if I want to go to church I'll go. But since most everyone I know wants to push it on me. I don't go. I do think if there was a temple near me I'd go back to Buddhism. No pressure there.Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

I've read through each and every one of these posts, but this one comes the closest to the kind of answer that I was hoping to make.
I know that God is real. I know that Jesus is the only begoten son of God and that gives me the reason for all that I do.
Prayer... I pray all the time. In James we're told to "Pray without ceasing". And I couldn't dream of doing what we do without good direction from THE very present and able God. Yea, it's a calling .....

Simply stated, God is real. There is no way that you can have a long, accomplished and protected law enforcement career without the intervention and oversight of the Almighty. The job is just too dangerous and impacted by evil from all corners. He just wants you to acknowledge the HUGE role He plays in every phase of your existence.
