  1. You're in the right place to get the help you need. Hang in there!
  2. I tried to post on Crazyguy's therad and got this: [[Template forums/front/topics/topic is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme.]]
  3. People with fundamentalist beliefs can be toxic when it comes to mental illness, because they see it as demon-possession, or "the dark side" trying to get you. It is neither; it's a misfiring in the brain that can be controlled with medication and therapy to deal with the very real trauma that comes from frightening psychotic episodes. Have you reached out to your doctor? Sometimes suicidal ideas can be side effects of some medications and you might need to try a different medication. Or, perhaps your anti-depressant isn't working as well as it needs to and you need a new dosage or type. Whatever you do, don't give up hope. See your doctor, talk to a therapist, talk to us. You can work through this.
  4. Do you think a fear of death has anything to do with your soul beliefs?
  5. Yeah, sadly this is what we go through, and it's really painful to realize that there's no one there to hear those prayers. Hang in there, it gets better with time.
  6. I always wondered why if Christians have better morals, why are most of the people in our prisons Christian?
  7. So @Christforums you say you are not here to evangelize. What then do you hope to accomplish? I still think you don't understand the premise of this website. We were all fervent Christians at one point; many clergy and lay leaders among us, and many with a deep knowledge of theology. What exactly is it that you think you're telling us that we have not already crawled our way out of through logic and reason?
  8. Got it. You have no evidence that doesn't derive from circular reasoning.
  9. So you are what I would characterize as "fundamentalist". You might not like it, but it's good enough for me. So let's get down to basics. What evidence do you have that God exists? The Bible does not count as evidence, that is begging the question (a logical fallacy where the conclusion is contained in the assertion). In other words, no circular reasoning allowed.
  10. I hate to break it to you but Satan doesn't exist. Satan (and demons) are mythological figures. And oddly, you claim to know what Satan thinks. That's a little strange. Are you sure you're thinking straight?
  11. How is Reformed Presbyterian different from Presbyterian Church USA? Just curious. Are you more of a Bible literalist? More of a predestination view? Calvin on steroids?
  12. I was actually a pretty mellow xtian. I wasn't evangelical, and didn't really care what other people did. But mine is the "liberal xtian" experience, so it's a little less "culty". I was a fervent believer, but had the attitude about other people that it was "between them and God".
  13. Easter? Personally I get shitfaced on red wine while singing along to Jesus Christ Superstar. YMMV
