    Jesus Is the Son of God

    A fter its kind, a seed will produce kind after its own kind. Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. Genesis 1:12 And the...

    Not Sure Anymore

    I was raised in a strict Pentecostal Church. It was all about the fear of going to hell. Whatever you did you could go to hell for doing it. And do not question the bible. That was a biggie!!!! I wondered as a 10 year old who Cain and Abel married since their parents were...

    I grew up in a home where we attended church.

    It was that way until I turned 11 y/o. My parents went through a spiritual experience when I was 11. When I was 13, I took my relationship more seriously. I haven't regretted it either. I have a personal relationship with Jesus.

    I didn't like it. I did

    when I was little but as I got older my parents' beliefs and how it formed the way they did certain things seemed so ridiculous. The rules were weird and weren't beneficial to anyone. And it seemed like it was just a really controlling tool. Of course I knew my parents were...

    I grew up in a "Christian" home.

    They introduced me to church and they payed for Christian school for a few years. They have always supported me living a life of Christian faith, but my parents have not attended church in years. I am very involved in my faith, but my parents didn't really have anything to do...

    So happy the brainwash is gone.

    Christianity is complete bullshit. Christians are incredibly hypocritical. I hate Christianity. One of the biggest reasons that I hate it is because it shames people, particularly women, for sex which is ridiculous. Sex is natural. Everyone does it, but oh if you do it...
