  • More About Me
    I am 18 {almost 19} years old. I have had a life of doubt, confusion and sin. While I have studied the Bible quite alot {especially end-time prophecy} I never really believed in it enough to "Fight the good fight of faith". Finally, I truly accepted the Lord and I'm now a soldier of Christ.

  • Still have any Gods? If so, who or what?
    Jesus Christ
  1. Everglaze, we can know who is a true Christian by the way they live their life; if they give glory to the LORD. HanSolo, I don't love Jesus as much as I should. I'm still growing in that department. Oh, and when Jesus said that, He wanted to see if the rich man would part from his worldy possessions for the love of Jesus. Which leads to the question, do we have anything on this earth we love more than Jesus?
  2. Someone who loves Jesus and has accepted Him as their Lord and Savior and who tries, day by day, to live for Him. In the process of course, their love for Jesus will be growing as they stay in the Word of God and in prayer. A Christian is not someone who is just religious or goes to church, and it isn't someone who hates people and has a self-righteous attitude. A Christian is humble and loving, as Jesus was, while speaking the truth; the whole truth.
  3. That's not true. "Not everyone who says to Me 'Lord, Lord', will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter." Matthew 7:21. "This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me." Matthew 15:8. "Why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord', and do not do what I say?" Luke 6:46. The Bible is clear that just because someone calls themselves a Christian, doesn't make it so.
  4. Spare me your pessamistic hopelessness. The debating isn't intended for YOU anyway. See.....people get on the internet, and they browse around about things they are curious about. The find a place called Ex-Christian.Net. They are curious. So they read a few articles. Lots of stuff makes sense. A lot of the questions they have asked within their own church that were insufficently answered or just glossed over with Jesus- sugar come back to mind. They start studying for themselves, and they start lurking in the debate forums. You don't have to be a member to view it. And there is where YOU come in. You come in here serving up more Jesus-sugar, and completely fail to answer a straight question with either logic, or common sense. You just parrot the bible because in your fevered brain it has all the answers. But only to a person who has learned not to ask questions. The lurker sees how you evade questions like a greased politician. You don't look clever, or knowing, or wise. You just look like a cheap car salesman. The lurker realizes that life CAN continue without religion. Some may go as far as atheism, other's may go for a more unorganized belief system. Either way, they have freed their mind, and YOU have helped them do it, though not your intent. So....thank you for being a bible-parrot. You do more for the cause of mental freedom than you could ever imagine. And you thought we were debating you in order to open your mind. Silly rabbit. Please be quiet if you don't know what you're talking about. This has nothing to do with me. I was speaking of Christians and unbelievers debating in general. And I never just dodge questions. I have said "I don't know" before. Now, would you rather me say that or just a bunch of crap?
  5. I'm been thinking about all the debates going on around these forums. Debating between Christians and non-christians is kinda like multiplying apples and oranges, so to speak. Christians will never see it their way, and non-christians will never see it our way. Christians walk by faith and not by sight {2 Cor. 5:7}, yet atheists and agnostics walk by site. If we say "You must have faith", they will call us ignorant. If they say "Look around you, God doesn't exist" we will say "We see Him everyday" or something like that. We will never see eye to eye. The Bible says it's the job of the Holy Spirit to convict people anyway. I'm not saying we shouldn't have discussions, but why debate? It's like going around in circles. Christians have heard every argument in the book that nonchristians have to offer, and I'm sure it goes the other way around too. So, what's the point?
