  1. I'm off for school today if anyone wants to talk I'll be in the chat area!

  2. Even being an atheist I still find I struggle with spiritual topics. Although, I personally find a naturalistic world view comprehensive (meaning no souls) it bears little comfort. However, I still cling to it. I'm not Richard Dawkins so I suggest finding a spiritual path that fits you. So long as you harm no one else of course. If you find it in a belief in souls so be it.
  3. Holy Shit school and things are eating me alive.-meh.

  4. I just read all of the replies, lol you guys. I know the majority do not however I have sat through a sermon on keeping food laws and such. (I fell asleep.)
  5. I'm curious, what commands did you keep. Or didn't keep for that matter.
  6. Hello! Sorry I haven't been on. Exams nearly killed me and likewise my family. @.@

      Damn glad to hear it Ata cause quiting is an SOB and I hope you got A's too, you know, smoking A's

  7. First off hugs to everyone! You guys are awesome. Second of all, I want to apologize for not getting to this sooner I was under the weather and I had mid-terms that took up a lot of time. Actually, yes, this is an actual concern for me considering the church I'm affiliated with supports gay-therapy. Typically, if you come out as gay/queer/some other families, of the evangelical streak, will at the very least try and get the youth to "pray the gay away." I should disclose I do live with my mother who isn't very kind about the gay-issue. She's nice to the gays but not so much about le
  8. First off, welcome! I'm glad you're here and out of Christianity! Second of thank you for sharing your testimony it was very well written. Third off, echoing what Professor said give yourself time to heal. Leaving is often a healing process and more often than not we can't just leave.
  9. [Warning-Queerness, homophobia, bipobia ahead.] I haven't done much on here for a very long time and when I am on here I don't say much. So, this calls for an ill-conceived miniature closeted-queer rant at one a.m. It doesn't help that I've been needlessly numb and uselessly depressed. So, yeah I'm one of those dirty, slutty, HIV spreading, cheating, just-confused, presumed-to-want-a-threesome bisexual, doesn't REALLY exist bisexual. My god I hate being bisexual. Literally, everyone despises us. Straight people can't "deal" with us(a given) and neither can the LG community. Don't b
  10. Mid-terms are going to be the end of me.

  11. It talks about all of man kind carrying the weight of the fall but, it does cast the jewish people as outsiders in quiet a few places.
  12. Good on you! It is good to be free!
  13. I'm having a strange night... Strange emotions concerning a strange religion.

  14. You know storm, I somewhat understand how you feel even when I was believer. I had a sense of hopelessness when my mother was in the hospital with heart pains and when a very, very close family member was struck with a bipolar disorder. The helplessness is crushing. My sincerest sympathies are with you.
  15. ^^^^Ah, my apologies then, I sort of forget sometimes that the US does start school a bit later. It's slightly difficult in my state to get a minor emancipated. Though, it's difficult to do most things if it involves the court system.
  16. I feel these guys. Austin is a pretty cool place, not surprised people liked them.
  17. I understand the feeling completely, no matter how hard I try I get the feeling of having to be a shiny happy christian all of the time. And I can't ever seem to relax around people that often anymore. Christianity seems just like such a huge part of my identity that, even though I'm comfortable with the atheist label internally it just seems rather off. Like it is not a label that belongs on me. I felt strange while I was searching for some new spirituality that I was just thieving someone else's clothing just so I could feel alright again. Unfortunately, I have no answers to fix the clothing
  18. You know I really appreciate this forum for all of the good people on here. I mean I seriously can't think of many places that you receive such thoughtful responses. My sincerest condolences about your mother, I lost my father when I was young and I definitely do not want to completely loose my mother over life choices/religion/anything in this universe she is the closets family I have in this world. I swear no one has done more for me than my mother. Although, I don't enjoy arguing with my mother I'd rather have her lecture me than no contact at all. My mother is invaluable to me and I appre
  19. The church I currently attend teach that women MUST submit to their husbands as the church. They are quick to say it does not make the woman inferior. Right. However, every male treats me as if I have permanent brain damage because I have ovaries. Actually , now that I think about it Paul's words were a catalyst to question the validity of the bible in the first place. Thus I went down the rabbit hole of bible scholarship and history.
  20. Thank you for reminding me I'm not dating in High school. Too much of the waiting around. (Would it destroy the universe if I said I asked a guy out? And wasn't passive. This seems foreign to most of the the know universe.) Hm. I also read somewhere that women are more drawn to religious things for social and biological reasons. Wish I could find where I read it though. Can't really say why. Thank you for reminding me I'm not dating in High school. Too much of the waiting around.

  21. So the books the former witches burned were books on what possibly might've been just stuff for medicine and how to properly use cannibis?
  22. I assumed that divination was verboten. Is it allowed now? I came across Driscoll a long time ago and I wasn't surprised. I swear this guy is going to end up on the news one day. Actually, I've run into this before just not in church. Honestly, I think Christianity is just society approved witchcraft in a lot of ways. Which is funny since in Acts, Paul wholly condemns the practice.

  24. Whoops!-- I thought I had posted this yesterday. Now I have to rewrite it. I might be more accustomed to Skype since I use things like video chat, email, etc. to communicate with colleagues around the world. You should show your mom how to use some kind of video chat application sometime. It's not a particularly steep learning curve. And most smartphones have very simple apps for this sort of thing. As for being emotionally stunted, it's good that you've got some foresight on this. College is when most people transition from being children to adults (a lot of college students
  25. Welcome! Doesn't feel better to finally tell your story and say that you're not a christian? I'm glad you found your way through Christianity! I can identify with the anger bit. It is completely understandable to come out of a vicious lie angry. Feel free to say anything that is on your mind. When you finally KNOW hell is not probable, all of your fear will go in time and the troubles of being anxious about will eternity eventually leave .
