    Defeated By Sin...

    I had always been a believer my entire life, and I still am, but I think I am not one of the "chosen" people. Over a year ago, I decided I truly wanted to live for God. I know that salvation is only attained by faith in Jesus through him dying for our sins as the ultimate...

    I quit believing in God

    because my aunt told me that he would help you with whatever I needed. And everytime I prayed something bad would happen. He never helped me and I felt like he lied to us ad so I quit believing in God.

    I stopped believing in god

    because if there really was a god, a greater being that wanted to help us, would there really be this much pain in the world? Would millions of children be starving and abused? Would the most evil, low-lifed, scumbags on earth be the ones with the most money and power? No.
