    Verses that bug you in the bible

    That was one thing I always questioned..why doesn’t god speak like he did to people in the bible? They heard him audibly... and the healing! No Christian ever answers directly... all they say is “oh he does speak, you aren’t listening!”
  3. Hello everyone I’m trying to find myself after Christianity. I’m trying to find interests. I lost them all due to me thinking it was “idolatry” I suffer from depression on top of things so it’s making it hard. Also physical health issues. I used to be into several tv shows and some kpop and I have recently tried to listen to that again, after ditching it in forsake of Jesus. I like the music but it doesn’t make me feel good like it used to. I’ve lost that side of me. Jpop doesn’t appeal to me at all anymore and I was into that a lot. I have no desire to see the tv shows again as they make me feel sick to think about. I trashed the dvds, films etc and don’t feel right about it as they were huge parts of my life which did destroy me as well.. it became obsessive and one caused issues in my life I don’t care to discuss. I feel they are just not “me” anymore. I did try a tv show and finished the season but just..meh... you know? It just isn’tthere for me anymore. The elements in it that go against Christianity bug me inside. I also have started an online game I used to play which I find an average sense of enjoyment in. I ditched that and pretty much destroyed it due to me thinking it was an “idol”. It’s ok but can’t play it all day. I also have tried a film genre I was kinda into. Not a lot but I have seen two or 3 movies in full in this genre since my deconversion. I have no interest in anymore. Seen trailers and just the ones I saw were ok. I really want to find a tv show to binge on or something but it just isn’t working I’m really into Japan and want to find some Japanese interest.... I am not into anime at all. I have tried to find an anime , I just find it an interesting country and I like the politeness, cherry blossoms, scenery, shops, fashion, stuffed animals... I like Sanrio as well a lot. But these aren’t “hobbies”. I tried colouring books but they just frustrate me. I used to be into sticker collecting... which I will try to get into but I have a limited interest in stickers so it’s not something to spend lots of time on. I trashed many of my albums due to thinking it was “evil” what I was collecting (I thought Disney was 666 and wicked.. I had many Disney stickers I spent so much money on..hundreds!). A time long ago I was into pokemon but I think I lost interest in that due to the voice actor change. I tried to get into period drama movies but I just am not finding myself drawn to them. I was into them. I have an interest in healthy diets and do try to eat healthy every single day. Does anyone have any idea on how to find hobbies? I am meant to go walking for health but I’m really rundown and sick right now.

    Let it go, Derek. There is a whole world out here of real flesh and blood people you can actually see and hear when you talk to them! I deleted my profile years ago and have no regrets.

    Why did she broke up with me in such a cruel and bad way?

    Do you want the truth...well love itself isn't enough in a lot of cases...you need to have common values and a similar worldview for it to work. That is, going by my definition or 'work', which actually means having a decent time together, not arguing about important things.

    Why did she broke up with me in such a cruel and bad way?

    @MOHO Yes, I know man it's so hard when you're in love. But I know that she wants me to change to much and is manipulative and in the future it is not going to work... Because she is way to much in religion and we are different. It sucks when love is there but differences make it not work... FUCK :'(

    Verses that bug you in the bible

    I had one guy try and justify the genocide of kingdoms by saying "well they were horrible people. They worshipped demons and sacrificed babies. Would you let someone live who sacrificed babies?" So to protect babies your solution is to kill everyone including the babies? "Ha! In your face demon! We've killed all the babies so you don't get any! Bet you feel pretty beaten now!" 🤔

    What an asshole. Happy to heal any and all that came to him back then, but can't be bothered to lift a finger for anyone now.

    Well, Never, if you separate the word into it's component parts I'll bet you can figure it out.

    Verses that bug you in the bible

    Mathew 15:30 A vast crowd brought to him people who were lame, blind, crippled, those who couldn’t speak, and many others. They laid them before Jesus, and he healed them all.

    My wife calls it "Navy language." Mark Twain made a number of comments about that which you might enjoy: "Under certain circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer." [Well, Twain was an atheist so I suspect he never got any relief from prayer if he even bothered to try it. For us prayer means nothing anyway.] "There ought to be a room in every house to swear in. It's dangerous to have to repress an emotion like that." "Profanity is more necessary to me than is immunity from colds." "My swearing doesn't mean any more to me than your sermons do to you." — comment made to Rev. Joe Twichell

    US climate report

    Thanks. I scrolled through. There is mention of the natural factors involved in climate change, as I've cited above. In edition volcanic and other contributing factors as well. And comparisons between natural warming periods, and man made warming. The differences being time scales. Man made happening faster than not man made climate change. But, none of this has to do with my question what does any of that mean to the Florida Peninsula? How does fixing man made global warming stop the sea levels from rising or falling for natural, non-made reasons like they've always done before in the past. The IPCC says if we don't do X (lessen emissions, lets say) then Y (sea level rise) will be the result. But what I'm saying is that even if we do X then Y will still necessarily happen anyways for natural reasons despite X. Because the coastlines have never been static according to science. Likewise, there's no hint from science that coastlines will remain static going forward. The truth seems to be that the best we can possibly do is make X happen, which, serves no other benefit than prolonging Y. Because stopping Y from ever happening again isn't even possible. This is where Florida is concerned. It's sketchy and dishonest to point to sea level rise as a reason for carbon taxing or any similar monetary governmental attempt at conservation using scare tactics of, 'if we don't do X then Y will happen,' if Y is not even stoppable to begin with. So far I don't hear anyone talking about this, not NOAA, not the IPCC. In other words, the big picture based on the facts and the truth are not being discussed at all. In favor of obscuring the big picture while asking for money. At the end of the day, coastal living will have to change and adapt regardless of anything we do. "Whole Civilizations Will Be Lost," says the IPCC. Well if that's scary, that's also unchangeable. The government can not fix that. It's not possible for them to fix that. We have shark teeth fossils in the middle of the state on the bottom of fresh water spring runs. We pull them out all the time. They date to when the state was covered with water during natural warm periods. And dry land now was previously shallow underwater reefs during natural warm periods in history. Even up on the central ridge are found sharks teeth in it's freshwater rivers. The state was covered with water. Given another set of similar natural circumstances which are cycle in nature (so expected to repeat eventually) how can we not expect the same to happen again someday? What about the future generations? Will they be looking at having to adapt and move around to new locations regardless of anything at all that we do or don't do now? And doesn't that even constitute "whole civilizations lost." Or just relocated, slowly, over time, and necessarily so, regardless of anything at all that we do?

    “Why isn’t God helping you more”

    Yssss to the ptsd and religious trauma syndrome. And narcissistic parenting. An antidepressant helped me a lot as well as my therapist who is trained in trauma. She actually is a Christian, but understands the mind fuck that xianity can bring. Best wishes to you. It does get better

    Yes- I have a vivid memory from the first week post Christian. I had left a blanket out on the line at night(sorry-Stay at home mom here). I suddenly remembered it and brought it in. In such a case, I would have thought, thank-you god! I would never have remembered that without you! That time, I thought, “great job, self.” Same thing happened like the next week when my toddler daughter broke her leg. Instead of praying the whole way to the emergency room, I talked to her and comforted her. We had a caring physician(even though I didn’t pray for that) and my daughter was fine. just talking to to a friend about how we can be ourselves ow, without having to worry about our “witness.”

Wer are planning on doing a nerd game fest Christmas Eve and then Christmas Day being Chinese food and watching Star Wars.

    game changer

    The most profound thing i ever heard was in my Alcoholics Anonymous book. It said. "Either God is everything or God is nothing. " That was my game changer. The christian God is certainly not everything. But shouldnt god BE everything? That was When i said goodbye to God as i thought i knew Him and embraced God as All That Is.
