    The Bible

    I used to consider myself an agnostic, but about twenty years ago, I decided to read the whole bible, old and new testaments.  I read a few pages every morning before work.  It took me months to get through it. That experience turned me into an atheist, I don't...

    One, and One Half Times

    Back in 2005, or 2006 I did read the whole Bible.  I did take a while, but I had nothing but time!!  This was when I was pretty heavy with flashbacks, and PTSD.  Now I can't, and won't say I remember everything that I read.  I started reading it again, but...

    Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth

    Good evening everyone, B.I.B.L.E., Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth. The Bible is one of the most informative books which I have been so fortunate to read in my few years on this planet. I have read the Holy Quaran too and have compared the two, both share very similar...

    12 Years Old!

    It was my 12th birthday, and my aunt and uncle had given me the Bible. I started reading, and read every night, along with praying. Needless to say, I read it all and became totally immersed in it. I began preaching around the house about the perceived evils I saw in society, and...

    Stop focusing on what you did in the past

    and seek God's forgiveness and move on. God loves you in spite of your past and nothing you could have done would ever change God’s love for you, God’s love is everlasting.

    I Have Got to Say

    I Am Not Christian, Yet I Wanted Perspective

    I read the bible front to back to give myself a perspective of religion. I am not religious myself but I believe there are important teachings in almost all holy literature and I enjoy comparing and contrasting them.
