    Confused

    I have been reading my bible alot lately and get really confused. I believe that God is the creator of the earth and that he sent Jesus to die for our sins. One of the things that I have a problem with is the church. Doesn't the bible say that you should attend "church"...

    It's Getting Harder To Be Positive

    I have always been a religious person. I believe in God with all my heart and although I am no longer a regular church goer, I still pray and talk to the Lord daily. I have had a lot of ups and downs in life (mostly downs it seems), but my faith has carried me through. I am...

    There's Something There

    We're not all here because of some great cosmic coincidence. I believe in science, but there's a huge part of me that refuses to die that doesn't just believe, but feels and knows that there is a divine power up there somewhere. But, just because I believe in God, doesn't mean...

    I Often Drift In And Out Of My Beliefs

    When I was a kid I always had a hard life and only thought of God as...God, not really all powerful and loving. I got mad at him when something bad happened and I was an odd kid, I wasn't a bully, I was bullied but I was also kind of mean (possibly cause of how people were...

    Why?

    Because I am human and I make mistakes all the time. I just need to learn from them and trust in God that he is in control of all my situations. God bless everyone GG

    Slowly Losing Faith

    All of a sudden I just stopped praying to God. Not entirely, but lesser prayers are coming from me. I don't know why I loss all interest but I feel like it's because HE hasn't answered a very personal problem of mine. Yes, HE has fixed my other personal/family problems but what...

    On Religion And My Child

    Today, my child asked about God and how He is perceived across all religions. In my mind, all I could think about is "This is it. This is the point where I decide on how to bring my child up regarding religion."I knew beforehand the moment will inevitably come. It was a matter of...

    I Believe In God But I Committed a Mortal Sin

    I believe in God really, because several times I make a prayer request he always grant it. Like when I asked if the guy that I liked so much would hopefully fall in love with me though it's really quite impossible because he's very shy and very reserve person. God really granted...
