I'm a christian. Born again. At first, I was so happy that I joined a ministry. Dance. But then, after a few months, I grew tired of it. I dunno why. Maybe because, I was addicted to the Net too much? Or because I'm not having my devotion? Whatever. I started hating attending rehearsals also leading the dance choreos. I started hating everything. But one time, it became a problem to me. I went to my classmate's house that day. I was so confused. My heart ached and everything. I felt guilt. The day after that was Sunday. So, I went leading again. Everyone was surprised to see me there. They were like, "Hey Rose! What happened to you?". Then I thought, someone missed me? I laughed at myself. Then, when I danced again, I was so happy. I feel like I'm with God again.
And you know what, I think that God challenged me this. And I'm proud that I made it. Being a christian is hard. So many challenges, so little time. But still, I love God so much and I'm glad I met him. I'm proud being God's servant. ^^
but it's nice to see those who've posted have self-respect to NOT attack others. Congratz, I'd hug you all, but then I'd be draining your life force, NOT metaporically (Inside joke...sorry.)
Well... Most people need religion to get through life, to have something to grab hold of when something bad happends. I sure need it, I feel good when I can pray and think that someone is listening. I mean- I can tell everything to god since he actually knows everything. And there really is a nice feeling when I pray. My believe is like my love- I don't know if it really exists, but I don't really care if it's just an illusion, because I love how it feels.
Well... I'm a Christian, a Lutheran, but I carry a... I don't even know what kind of a crucifix I'm carrying :D: But I found it in my room and... I've been wearing it ever since. But I am a very unordinary Christian, because... well I have never read the bible and so on... I believe there is one god the only thing that is different is how we pray to him and no one can say what is the best way to pray...
:smile:hey, im also catholic !!! but to me there is not really a devil!!! i actually think it just something to make us act all goody to shoes!!!
i believe there is some1 that watches over us , but i dont believe there is a heaven and hell!!!! once again i think all that stuff is just to make you scared of doing somethins bad!!!:confused:
but thats just me:2thumbs::2thumbs:
As of this point in time I pledge being a self discoverer.
Why you may ask?
My whole life religion has seemed like one of those things that's just there...it was never anything important to me. As I grew older I became more curious about it. My parents raised me to be christian, to believe in god, to pray for things. I did for awhile, but I never felt anything. In church I never feel anything...I don't feel like standing up and saying PRAISE JESUS CHRIST and PRAISE THE LORD. My whole life I've always said "I wish," or "I hope." I've never said once in my entire life I pray. Believe it or not...it's true. I don't understand many things in the bible...the things I do understand...many of them are hypocritical and plainly I would consider, in my opinion, stupid and not right. I will admit that something are right and justly. Religion is something I have yet to find...I've been searching for it for years and have yet to find it. Maybe I'll find it when people stop blowing up houses and making orphans of innocent kids( lyric from a song I like). Maybe god will do something someday if he is real. I don't know what is watching over us and taking care of us...all I know is that he or she needs to do a better job, or rather we ourselves need to do a better job. and I would be glad if someone can prove me wrong, can prove to me that god does exist, because, damn...I sure am tired of searching. If anyone has any ideas or opinions they would like to share with me...be my guest!
Overall I think I am good person and that you don't have to be christian, buddist, catholic, penecostal, wiccan, pagan, or whatever to be a good person.
I also really wish people who quit blaming every bad thing that happens on satan. How do we know that he is the one who is causing everything bad to happen? How do we know he is even real?
I am not a very religious person......even though my parents want me to be........they think that just because I do not go to church or synagogue....i will suffer and go to hell......which sounds so ridiculous to me
i was the type of child that my parents would literally drag me to church and meanwhile i would ask them.......mom, how do you know that there is a God.........or how do you know that it is a he and not a she......
I have nothing against religion.....it's just does not suit my lifestyle
Also, Buddhism might not have started out as a religion worshiping a God it surely transformed into one not much later.
Not to mention that most of the stuff you talk about is from the bible. Which is just be a work of fiction if you don't believe in God.
I think I understand why you say you contradict yourself a lot. :D
