  • Still have any Gods? If so, who or what?
    I AM
  1. You shouldn't have to fake anything. I would definately tell them.
  2. alot of people feel hopeless after rejecting xianity. I did for quite a while until i changed my attitude about life. I started thinking "i deserve to be happy and i deserve good things" this has helped my life tremendously. it only works if you really believ it though. At first i just let my self be depressed for a while.......and it felt bad, but in a good way-and soon i got sick of being depressed and decided to change.
  3. I think that most of the people on this sight have not had any experience with "god" or "jesus" If we had we would still be christians.
  4. when I was holding on by a thread like you were I simply did one thing: I asked god, jesus, hs, everyone outloud to speak to me and tell me that they were here for me. I waited about 10 days and at the end of the tenth day I had still not gotten a answer.
  5. great idea- sara-you didn't say whether your father emotionally abused you in any other way-but it sounds like he could have very well have. I would remember also that just because someone is a family member, you don't have to feel required to love them-you can hate them if they deserve it. I'm sorry for what you went through, you have a right to be mad.
  6. you guys I would not recomend getting the chip after visiting a variety of websites(non-christian) and learning about mind control. you should do some research. i'm not just being paranoid-research alternative news websites just once please. keep in mind that some of those prophecys could be true-I mean there are people who make true predictions. not saying that the prophecy makers were christian-but the stories have been changed throughout history to serve a christian agenda........okay I can't explain what i'm trying to say.
  7. I just love this forum! I grew up in a christian school and church since i was 4 years old-i naturally assumed it was all true until i was 7. Thats when I had my first issue-this may sound silly- All the other kids in my class had these plastic ponies, but my mother wouldn't get one for me. So I prayed to god and asked that when i woke up one would be waiting for me. it wasn't there. That was when i first wondered-"Maybe god isn't real" But i kept believing or assuming rather for the next 7 years-I would pray everytime I wanted something or needed help-never got an answer. I kept re-"giving my life to christ" about once a year, each time hoping to feel better, or feel something at least-but i never did. I prayed endlessly during my painful middle school years-not one answer. When I was in ninth grade through 11th grade i pretty much abandoned christianity but in the back of my mind i just assumed that i was a rebel and was destined for hell. The summer after 11th grade I went to church camp and as usual i avoided all religious activity. One of the camp councelors noticed that I wasn't a participant and saw fit to try to convince me to accept christ. As he rambled on about his testimony and such I asked him one question-"How are you certain that its real-that it's the truth?" his answer-"I don't know-I just have a feeling it is." then I said "Well I don't have that feeling and I never have. And I've tried really hard to feel it, but I don't." that was when I realized that I just didn't believe it because I had no reason to. And like most of us-we really have tried to see it, to feel it-but we just don't Over the next three years I spent some time actually reading scripture and realized that it just wasn't right- inconsistancies in the bible, the meanness of god-killing his children free will and hell-impossible sexism, homophobia, slavism, racism god picking favorites (jews, also picking christians if you look at the bible literally) god smiting and killing abundantly original sin-unfair VERY unfair if we all only were to have one chance then we should all be given equal lives on this earth-don't ya think? 80 years each-same wealth, living conditions, looks, etc-this is what really turns me off to it. Well those are just a few things that I don't like about christianity-but there are many more where that came from!!! I still suffer from some doubts and insecurities and guilt-its a long process-dechristianizing, don't feel bad if you suffer from these too. Its like if you had a parent who abused you emotionally and told you, you are a bad kid, a mistake, you deserve to burn. It would take time to recover from that right? right now I consider my self somewhat new age-but i really don't know-I believe that we should all be considered our own gods and that we all have equal worth-everything in life does really. I also believe that there could not be good without evil and vice versa. I also am looking into magic and the supernatural. I'm looking forward to spending time on these boards! best wishing to all on de-christianizing!!!
