My name is Matthew. I try my best to serve the Lord as best I can. I also try to serve my fellow brother and sisters as best I can. Salvation is my goal for you.

advice

So later, i have to give a testimony or a speech about my relationship with God and pursuading young teens to keep on praising God. How exactly should i do that? I mean, what should i say? Answers ASAP please.

Just speak from the spirit.

Talk about the good he has done for you.
Talk about how hes helped pull you out of bad situations.

Talk about how awesome He is. How much He loves you.

First off im 15 F. And I know alot of people aren't going to like this but whatever. All of my life i have never gone to church or anything, and I want to, like I want to have a church family and everything and I really would like a place to talk about my spirituality. But I cant find a church that I like. As for my religion, I basically have christian based values, but anyways here are my beleifs.

1. I beleive in god as a force and not a being.
(basically I believe in god as love in general.)
2. I dont believe in the devil. I think that was a
a story made up to scare people that if you sin
you will go to hell.
3. I don't believe in hell. I believe there is
heaven and thats all.
4. I know there was a man named Jesus and he taught great lessons, but I dont believe he rose from the dead and all that.
5. God is Love and Sin is Evil.
6. And last, people should be entitled to their own religion without anyone giving them a hard time.

Anyways, there is just a basis of whatI believe. So my question is, do you know of a church or religion that is basically all of those?

Also, I had this idea, maybe I could start a website forum where people could talk about this, sort of like starting my own religion,(hehe that sounds weird). Do you think many people would join me on that? Do you think anyone believes the way I do?

Any way, sorry its so long. I just really want to talk about what I believe and where I'm from, you would get beat up because everyone is very conservative baptist around here. Like I am the only democrat at my school. : ). soo, if you have any views on this, please tell me. Just keep them nice. Thanks in advance!!

Did a baptist scare you away before?

Why dont you believe Jesus rose from the dead?

Like the other guy said, How can you believe in a Heaven and not Hell? What happens after death? WHat happens to murderers, or all "bad people?"

Is there such a thing as salvation then?

A lot of Jesus's "great lessons" were about Hell, and salvation...

I just want to know where your comming from before I answer...

Feel free to e-mail me at any time....

Hello! I really like this guy. Today I saw him, it was the first time in a while. He is 15, and I am 13. I know, you can't be inlove at 13. Everyone probley thinks it's just a crush, well, I am convinced your wrong.

We evacuated once, and we went to the same place, and we hung out a little. I liked him then, and I was 11. When he left, I was CRUSHED! I felt horrible.

Today he was on my float. He smiles at me, but I don't know what he means. After the parade was over, I feel WORSE then I ever did. I want this guy so bad. I even prayed alot of times. I might sound a little dramatic, but please, try and understand.

What are some promises I can make with God? If he helps me get over this guy? I might not ever have him, or see him again [ I probley will see him again ]. I just don't want to feel like this again. I felt like this the day my father died! Could God help him like me, or even be my best friend, just be.. you know.. closer too him. This guy is just AMAZING!

So, does anyone know any promises I can make with God, to help him help me about this problem. I have had crush's, and MANY boyfriends, but I have never felt this feeling.

Thank you.

BTW- for lent I already gave up junk food. I thought it would help me loose weight, and come closer too God. Also, I promised to pray every night, and morning.

Hi there. Its cool you have lots of faith in God. Woo! However I must warn you....I wouldnt make any promises with God. He takes them very seriously, and if you break it, if even on accident, then hit hurts him. Thats why in Matthew 5:33 and onJesus says, "Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.'"But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God's throne;"nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King."Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black."But let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No.' For whatever is more than these is from the evil one."

People break promises, and God would rather avoid getting a promise broken.

My suggestion is to just keep praying until something happens. The Lord knows what you want and will provide.

I'm a teenage girl (raised catholic) who has been atheist/agnostic/unsure since the summer. I have encountered several recent events in my life that have lead me to believe that there really is a God after all. All of my friends are really strong christians- but I just don't think that God is real.

I don't know if Christianity is right- or even real... but I'm feeling compelled to recommit my life to Christ. What does that mean anyway? How can you "commit your life" to someone who isn't even real? Who IS Jesus? I mean this whole thing makes no sense. How can there be a God when there are so many other religions like islam and such? My prayers never came true as a Christian.

Oh, by the way- I hate going to church and i don't see the point in doing it. It never even brought me closer to this so-called God. To be a true Christian (not a poser) do you HAVE to attend mass? What if I just want to have my OWN faith? I also don't believe in Bible verses and stuff- like I don't think that the people in it were real. Why can't we just have faith in GOD and not all the crap that goes along with it?

I was also raised catholic, so I see where you are comming from in the mass department. No you dont have to attend mass to be a true christian. When it comes to catholic mass I tend to avoid that. I left the catholic church a long time ago because they are way out there.

You dont have to go to church to be a christian. I would go, but just know that not all churches are sit and be quiet or go to hell churches. Thats not how the original churches were. They had good upbeat music and good church service.

My question for you is, can you really have faith in God if you dont believe what the bible says, and not believe the people in the bible (God being one of them)?

"How can there be a God when there are so many other religions like islam and such?"

Its easy. God exists and the world is filled with many false religions.

Jesus is very real. What the bible says about Him is 100% true. He died on the cross for you, took all your sin on that cross with him, then rose on the 3rd day to show there is life after death.

WHat is compelling you to recommit your life to Christ is the Holy Spirit.

I look at it this way.

its not a religion, its a relationship.

Im a non denominational christian.

I do go to church, but you dont need it.

All you need is the Holy Bible. I recommend the New King James version.

Now a lot of people will give you crap about that book being from the devil but I say what about all the people before 1611, or people who dont speak English...are they not saved because they dont read that sacred version of the bible. I am talking about the people who say that only the authorized 1611 King James version of the bible is the only correct bible.

Anyway.

I say give your life over to Jesus. Give your sin to Jesus. Accept Jesus into your heart. He is the only way to life everlasting. Dont lose heart when prayers dont get answered. They will in due time. Ive got a waiting list of prayers ready to be answered. God knows what you need and he will provide. Maybe he is just waiting for you to really give your life to Him...I dont know.

I dont know if I believe in a God anymore. It just doesnt seem real. How do I figure this out and stop being confused about it all. Also, my friends believe in God.... should I talk to them about it? Do you think they would be upset with me if I didnt believe in a God?

What about it doesnt seem real? I used to be in the same position and I got my answer by looking at all options.

You have the widely popluar Evolution.. This to me doesnt make sense.. Billions of years ago It rained on some rocks and life sparked.

Im sorry but My ancestor was not moss.

Next is the big bang theory. The universe was the size of this period ---> . started to rotate at massive speeds then it just exploded into what it is now, sending galaxies spiraling into the universe.

If thats the case then why do some planets and galaxies spin backwards? According to Angular Momentum if something were spinning at great speeds all objects comming off it MUST also spin in the same direction at the same speed. We have all kinds of stuff out in space spinning in every direction at different speeds.

I look at it like this. Scientists cant explain where the atom came from.

You just cant take nothing and then blow it up.

You cant take grass, add some water and make a person from it.

I used to be the guy who would tell jokes about Jesus and God and all kinds of bad crap, then one day I just heard the truth. Ever since then Ive had so many blessings in my life. Ive prayed for obvious signs and Ive gotten my answers. I look out into the world and see so many things that point to the existence of God. For example I always read in the paper that someone should have died and while in the ER they just got better. I love reading that doctors cant explain it. I love when they say there is no reason why this person should be alive right now. That to me says God is very real.

I became a Christian two years ago, but I was baptized Catholic as an infant. I really get into the Christian faith more than the Catholic faith.

However I also heard that Catholic is very similar to Christian, except that Christian is more of a general faith than Catholic? I really don't know.. I mean I would hate to leave the Catholic faith. I am asking what is the difference between being Catholic and Christian? Would it matter if I was baptized Catholic and being more Christian? What am I supposed to do??

Thanks

Catholic is similar to Christianity yes, however Men throughout Catholic history started to change doctrine, the bible, and add their own personal beliefs into it, thus makeing it a false religion.

They believe in purgatory, when the bible makes no mention of a purgatory. They took some scripture and twisted it to fit.

They believe Mary Jesus's mother is a mediator between us and God. Jesus stated Himself that He is the only way. No one else. This includes Mary.

Second they dont believe the bible is Fully true. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,13509-1811332,00.html

I mean come on. This is a bunch of guys dressed in fancy robes trying to play God. They think they are saving people, yet they really are sending them to Hell. I only say this because like I said...Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Catholics take their eyes of Jesus and place them in Saint Mary Queen of Heaven (Did you know the bible talks about a Queen of Heaven and its not good at all...Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.)

http://www.jesus-is-lord.com/mary.htm

They pray to Mary for help with Sin. I do believe only one person I know can deal with it, and it's not her.


"Would it matter if I was baptized Catholic and being more Christian? What am I supposed to do??"

It doesnt matter what you were baptized in before. What matters is you see the truth and accept the bible for what it is: The truth and the unfalable word of God. Accept Jesus, not mary, and so forth. I used to be Catholic so I know how it is...I would get baptized as a newborn Christian, and leave the Catholic faith behind....Thats what I would do...Im not telling you what to do...

I could go on and on and on but Ill spare you ;)

I keep pondering whether God is supporting homosexuality, or opposing it. Many of my Christian friends have told me it's a sin to be homosexual, or bisexual for that matter, and according to the bible marriage is between a man and a woman. However, I always viewed it as God would accept you no matter who you are, or what you believe in. I am wondering which side I should take. I am not against homosexuality/bisexuality at all. I am befriended with many of them, and they don't bother me. It's just I am not sure which side is right, and which side I should go for. I need explainations on which side is better, even if it's based on opinion. Thanks in advance!

God Loves the sinner, but hates the sin. God does accept you no matter who you are. He doesnt accept sin, or ANYTHING you believe in. There is only one way to God and that is through Jesus.

Homosexuality, God has flat out called an abomination. He also states, they will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

If you truly repented and accepted Christ as yur Savior, then You would naturally turn from homosexuality. I believe anyone can come back from being gay. No matter how into it they are. Every sin is forgivable.

So to answer your question. God opposes it.

Hi. I'm 13/f
My problem is that My mom is really into christianity and all that stuff, but lately I've been getting into witchcraft.(yes, I know the bible says it's an abomination against God) My mom doesn't know, and so she still takes me to church with her every sunday.but whenever I'm in church, I feel like I'm getting a lecture or something like that. She's so into it, she sent me to private school because of the "Moral Values" of it. the truth is, all the kids there are pretty much the same as they would be in public school. We all cuss, some of us smoke and a few of us drink.I mean, I believe in god, but I also believe in spells. I've seen them work before and have succesfully done some. I'm not really sure what to do. Any help???

Wicca is a very dangerous thing to get yourself into. Spell casting, as in incantation type of junk is straight from the pit of hell and will get you sucked in so fast that you won't have time to think.

So what made you decide to go to wicca? If you know that it is an abomination to God why would you still do it? Sure right now you are young and are trying new things, but what comes after death is far greater than casting a spell right now. You have two choices....Believe what Jesus did and who he is, stop being a wiccan, or continue wicca and spend eternity regretting your decision.

ok this might sound silly, but i really need a life changing event to becoma a good person, like ive been really bad this past year, ive stolen and lied SOOO MUCCCH! and ive done so many bad things its not even funny! i want to becoma a good person! but it kinda feels like i have no reason for it, like its stupid i know, the reason is that i wanna becoma a good person, but it still feels like.. come on, im getting stuff for free, ikm finding out who my crush likes, im benefeting from it, you know? so i feel like i need this big thing to happen so i can start turning my life around! because i've tried and it doesnt work! there's nothing really to motivate me.. so what should i do? its not like i cant control some big life changing event, so what can i do??

I know this is late...but meh.

Something big to happen in your life. Well I would say the biggest thing that can happen to you and turn your life around is to accept Jesus Christ as your saviour. Read the bible, dont give into temptation. I know that last one is tough, let me tell you. Just believe that Jesus died for your sins on the cross. That he forgave you by giving himself up. That he rose from the grave 3 days later to show that after death you will have life everlasting. Only Christ can turn your life around. So just give your life to Christ and let him sort it out. Hes the best one at that job I know of.

If you need help comming to Christ let me know. Im here for you.

alright, well. i was raised in a catholic family. we go to church every week, pray before we eat, the whole shibang. i believe in God, and love him,, but i just dont feel that "fire" for him that i think i should. how do i get it? how do i know if i really am "saved." i just really want to be close to him and to start living for him, not just myself. HELP ME!

Listen to mylordwon. They know what is going on. However I must say one thing you might find offencive. Catholicism. It is good to believe in God, and Jesus, Very good in fact, however...Let me just say this first. I grew up catholic. I know what its about. Okay. This'll be tough...remember I am trying to help you. Okay. First thing. The Euchrist. They have this thing where it actually turns into the body of Christ. This is all man made right there. Show it to me in the Bible.

Along with this, they believe you have to cruxify Christ everyday. One time is not enough. When Jesus said "It is accomplished." I think he was trying to tell us something....

Another thing, you ask for forgivness from a priest. Not Christ but a priest. Show me where it says dont ask for forgivness from Jesus but rather from a sinful man. Then he says "say 5 hail marys" or however many. Where did they get that from? Jesus never said "Believe in me, my saints, Saint Mary Holy Mother of Me, and then say 10 hail marys, and Ill see you in paradise"

Another thing. Saint Mary holy mother of God. She can interceede to Jesus for us. Hmm. Heres a verse for ya. "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6) Well. I guess thats another thing that says teh Bible is wrong.

Then there is the rosary Dedicated to Mary. Ive never seen anything about a rosary in the Bible. So if that is the case, then it must be man-made. I pray to Jesus alone. Not Mary, not Saint Christopher, not a necklace, nor a wafer, nor a priest. Why do Catholics take their view from God and place it upon Men? Mary was blessed to be chosen to give birth to Jesus, but she is no queen of heaven or a bridge between me and God. Jesus took that spot.

Then there is purgatory. Where is purgatory in the Bible? Where does it say you have to do good works to get out of it in the Bible? did you know long ago, when Catholics ruled the world, If you wanted to, you could pay a price, walk up some set of stairs pray on each step, and one of your dead relatives would be let out of purgatory and into heaven. Wheres that in the Bible? Catholic is a man made religion. It focus's not on Jesus, but rather on popes, and saints, and relics, and wafers, and mary, and so on.

Im sorry to go on this rant. Catholicism is a false religion, and I want to get people out of it while I still can. Its not about the bible or Jesus in that religion. Its about the pope, and Mary and stuff.

To get your fire back, I would say ask for Jesus to enter your heart. Believe he died for your sins. Not the Euchrist, but CHrist. Know that Mary is not between you and God. Know that a saint cant protect you. Know that a rosary will not save you. Know that Mary will not save you. Christ ALONE will provide salvation. Remeber

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6)

One thing you can start doing is, help your family. Do God's work there. Then go out and spread the Gospel. I find the best way for me to be close to God is do his work no matter how small. Cleaning the church toilets is the work of God. Going out and passing out tracts is the work of God. Going to some site called advicenators.com and talking about Christ is the work of God. Draw close to him, and he will draw close to you.

I hope I helped, and please dont hate me. I dont want you to be blinded by man and his traditions, and walk on teh wide road to destruction...If you want you can work with me on here to help people find God. We can both draw close to God together, then get more people, and more and more, and get the truth out there.

Are there any ideas in theories concerning relativity and the universe that at the end of eternity, time goes back to the beginning and starts all over again, following the same timeline of events?
I read about something like that a few years ago and was wondering if it had any base at all.

If eternity is time that never ends, nor has a beginning, then is there really an eternity? Also How is it possible for time to start over? Also, if it does repeat itself, how could it follow the exact same path it took before? Also, if it did start over, is there really such a thing as time then? If it did start over, if we were the generation that was at the very edge of a redo, what would happen to us? Would we just dissapear for a long time, or would we just start out at when we were born? However if that were true, and weve established that time does not exist, how can it know when and how I was alive before, when really there was no before?

I don't know, I've just been thinking about this alot lately. Okay, you know how people always say that to go to Heaven you have to believe in God and be religious and such? Well, what about a person who is kind and selfless and is just a good person in general and is an athiest? Does that mean that they wouldn't go to Heaven even though they were a good person who did good for other people? Because if you think about it, not every person who is religious is good. Like the terrorists who flew the plane into the World Trade Center, causing the deaths of all those innocent people. They claimed that they were doing that for God and their religion. I mean, wouldn't it seem wrong for a person just to go to Heaven because they were religious even if they weren't a good person, and a person who was a really good person not going to Heaven because they weren't religious? I was just thinking about this and wondering if anybody had some answers, perhaps?

Hmm some of these answers here are pretty good. Allow me to make my opinion which I believe is based off of fact, since it is written in the Bible. Being a good or bad person does not determine who gets into Heaven or not. Faith in Jesus Christ is what determines it. Look at the man on the cross next to Jesus. He was a murderer and a thief and a rapist and many other things. Based on the good person/bad person idea this man is going to Hell. However, he told the other prisioner being cruxified that he (the man) deserved to be on the cross and not Jesus, and believed Jesus was God the Messiah. The he asked Jesus to remember him when Jesus enters heaven. Jesus promptly told him Today you will be with me in paradise. This man was forgiven and let into heaven for believing in God. Not what he did.

Second Jesus said "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live." John 11:25

He also said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6

These are just two of the passages amoung many.

Being a "good" person is not going to get you into Heaven. In God's eyes we are all sinners and all fall short of the glory of God. Our sin is the never ending ocean between us and God. Jesus is the only bridge to God. What he did on that cross took our sin away from us so long as we believe that Jesus Died for us on that cross, and was resurrected on the third day to show that life does exist after death. God is ready to accept all people over the whole earth, we just have to believe. Not just think that helping an old lady across the street is enough for God to go "Welcome aboard!"

Your sin has been paid for by Jesus. All you have to do is get the reciept from him.


*ADDED* If a person believes in God and does terrible things in his life then does he really believe in God? Believeing causes a change in someone, and someone who says "I believe in God" but then kills someone, is not someone who really does believe in God.

No matter how "good" someone is they still do something against God in their life. The very first sin you've ever done was enough to kick you out of Heaven. Heaven is perfect. Man-kind is nowhere near perfect. SO if you were 5 years old and lied to your parents, but then at age 16 decided to help thousands of people and did so, but did not believe in God, that lie you told when you were 5 was enough for Heaven to shut its doors on you. Thats why the Bible says all you have to do is believe in Jesus Christ and follow his call. Saying you believe and hurting someone intentionally later on is not really believeing.

I am a Christian, and always have been. I pray at LEAST every other day, I occassionally go to church, I repent, I try to limit how much I sin, and I believe that Jesus is God's son.

I used to be very certain that I would end up in Heaven. But recently, I came across a Bible verse that has been on my mind for a while. It's Matthew 7:13-14.

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a fiew find it."

Now I'm basically VERY worried about not making it to Heaven. The Bible says that it's hard to get in, but it also says that believing in Jesus is the only thing you need in order to get into Heaven. So I don't know what to do. =[

I'm also kind of starting to wonder about other religions. I think "If Christianity isn't the true religion, then I'll go to Hell forever", so I worry even MORE.

Please help. I don't need reassurance. I need answers.

Some of these answers are good, some are not. Let me help you here since I have gone through the same thing. "Wide and broad is the gate to destruction" Think about it. I believe the world is 6000 years old. I can tell you why if you want to know, but going off my time line lets go through this starting at Jesus's death. We wont even count before he was made man. Since his death, there have been tons and tons of religions. Jehovahs witnesses for example. Started in 1859 or something like that has stated "Their 1997 statistics state that their peak membership count tallied in at 5599931" 5.6 million people. Thats just one religion and its only been around about 150 years. Then you have mormon, which has millions, and muslims, which is millions, and sheites, and wiccans, and atheists, and satan worshippers, and so on and so on. That is millions, upon millions, upon billions of people just since jesus's death. More people reject God then they do love God. That is why the gate to Hell is wide, and the one to heaven is narrow.

As for your eternal destination, if you truly believe in your heart that Jesus is God, and that he died for your sins on the cross, and rose again on the 3rd day and acended into heaven then you are all set for a one way ticket to heaven.

We are saved by faith, not works: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from youselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do " (Eph. 2:8,9).

God does not purify us through works but, " he [God] purified their hearts by faith. . . .We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved . . . "(Acts 15:9, 11).

The steps to confession, " If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved " (Romans 10:9, 10). (this entails knowing the True Christ however).

We were dead in our sins as unbelievers, " As for you [believers], you were DEAD in your transgressions and sins [before you became believers], in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air [Satan], the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. . . .We were by nature objects of [God's] wrath. But because of his great love for us, God who is rich in Mercy, MADE US ALIVE with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved " (Ephesians 2:1-5).

So if you truly believe you are set for a glorious life with Christ in Heaven.

"Then they said unto Him, What shall we do that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent." --John 6:28, 29

I don't understand this. Many people are beginning to say X-mas. Well, the whole point of Christmas is because it is the birth of Christ. Isn't calling Christmas X-mas taking the whole point of Christmas away?

You see...the world is trying to take God out of everything. It went from CHRISTmas, to X-Mas, to Happy Holidays. God used to be allowed in schools, but now mentioning God is infringing on peoples rights, and their right to whatever religion they want. I could go on forever....but its sad that people dont care about God when he cares about us more than anything. I just dont get it. I belive in God and he goes everywhere I go.

I've thought a lot about death lately, and have found myself very freaked out about what it would be like to not exist and that this is my only life. Dying and being nothing and not even knowing for forever scares me a lot.


Any advice or reassurance would be nice. Anything concerning Jesus will automatically get your question rated a 1 and your face ripped off.

Prepare my 1 please. Hmmm Rolling on your train of thought If you died and then you didnt exist whats there to be scared of? The second you die its blank. You wont feel anything, you wont know anything, you wont think anything, you wont be anything....You know, I used to be just like you. I thought when I die I will be nothing. Right. Well Just recently the Lord (Jesus) came into my life. (Rip my face off please...im ready to go)..Now I know that when I die I will exist. I know you will exist. However there will be a distinct difference (as of right this moment) I will continue to live after death, and you will....for lack of a better phrase...burn in hell. REMEMBER that is right this very second. If you gave your life to Jesus, you will have life everlasting. You wont have to be afraid of death. I welcome it everyday because I KNOW I will be better off, when it happens. I think it is far more scary to think that when someone dies who does not believe in God they will spend forever burning, and being seperated from God. I thank God everyday I finally listened to Him and gave my life over. When youve been in eternity for 1,000,000,000,000 years, that will only be like half of a nano second compared to how long forever is. If you need help turning over to the Lord I will help you. There are lots of people to help you. I dont mean to sound like a jerk or anything, but I am tired of people making everything sound like a wonderland, when in reality eternity could be a very very horrible thing. (I talk of christians who dont talk about hell and say life will be just perfect. They should know life is tough and Hell is very real) I dont want to see you go there. Once you believe, the evidence that shows that God does exist is overwhelming! I say once you believe, because a non believer is so shut down, they dont care to see the facts. If I can turn away from my old life anyone can. I was pretty much one step away from worshipping the devil before the Lord helped me. So dont be so shut down, give it a try. I would rather be rubbed out of existance then go to Hell. Jesus is waiting for you with open arms, so why dont you go meet with him. Get a bible, if you dont have one I will send you one, just whatever it takes for you to see the truth. This goes for anyone out there who reads this and doesnt believe....

Your salvation is as important as eternity is long....


I mention Jesus because it is the truth. If I had posted a question about how I think Jesus could be a lie and stated answers from atheists, or non-believers are not welcome, you yourself would have probably have answered.

I simply offered an answer to over come your fear of not existing. Its your duty to take it or leave it, but its my duty to offer my answer.

If you want to talk more, Id be more than welcome to have a conversation.

What is the differnece between Catholic, Lutheren and Christian religions? I want to know about the differences befor i pick one.

You dont just "pick one" Thats not how it works. Its how you feel about it all. Whatever you feel about religion, then you find the one that fits it the most.

if a guy sees this question he will know wat i mean.

I have a problem. I am a christian kid but im slipping away from the lord because of things i look at. if ya know wat i mean. I cant stop. I try but nothin works. If you can help, please do

I dont think it should make you slip from the lord. Its human nature to look at this stuff. Dont feel bad and dont give up the lord. All sins are forgiven so nothing bad is going to come out of it. its harmless really. Just looking at this stuff. You can cut down and such. If you have the urge to look at it, do something else. Play an online game at www.2flashgames.com. They have many games to take your mind off it. Dont worry mate....things will get easier with it. Resist the temptations.

Hope I helped!
