    for me there is no debate, God said He created everything and that is good enough for me. Extra evidence is readily available outside the Bible to verify creation, both God and Jesus are more reliable than anything else. Not all “Christians” discount evolution for various...

    Recently I've really become closer in my faith,

    I've been trying really hard to become a better Christian and just grow in my relationship with God. I've recently applied at a summer camp, which is Christian and will really help me grow in my faith. Please pray that I get hired for this summer camp job.

    I have been praying for him to open my eyes

    and he did. Now that I see the light I need his strength for myself and my son. I may have gone to inappropriate lengths to find the truth, but I think he would understand.

    When it comes to wanting to know Gods plan

    for all, the answer should be obvious; it is to honour Him in everything we do. And that ties in with dying to self.

    Honestly I've been thinking about giving up

    going to church. This said from a girl who basically grew up in a church. It has mainly to do with the fact that the pastor died a week ago and he was family to me. I'm scared to leave but i want too. If only parents understood this.
