  1. Hi there! I am going to start off by giving a bit of a backstory, and please hear me out by reading all of this because I am in dire need right now. I grew up in a lovely home with Baptist parents who attended church every Sunday. However, I hit very traumatic times at about 7 years old, and now I am 16, going on 17, and my life is healing from the trauma of divorced parents, dealing with calling defax on my own mother for emotional, verbal, and sometimes physical abuse, hating my father for years due to my mother calling him unworthy every chance she got- only to find that my father did everything he could to make me realize he meant no harm, and all the mental issues which came with these life experiences. Shortly after turning 12, four years into my nearly 10-year real-life conflict, I found myself falling far from God. Although I had become fully saved according to the Baptist faith and believed with all my heart that God was my savior and my all at age 10, I fell far from Him only two years later. Two years later, at 12, and hardly 12 at that, I text my friend late one summer night. "I don't know that I believe in God anymore," I sent her, crying my eyes out because all I needed right then was someone to pull me back to God and say that I needed to hold on. I desperately needed someone to grab my ears and pull me up saying, "Hello!! Jesus is alive! He is alive! And He loves you more than you'll ever comprehend!" But, the reality was far from this. My friend responds less than a minute later. "I am an Atheist." My heart dropped at the message. But... strangely enough, it later was found with relief. I felt ACCEPTANCE for falling from Him! It sounds crazy because it is. I researched for a long time, mainly in the wrong places, and I found myself to identify as an Atheist. This lasted for years, all the way until a month or so ago to be frank. I am going to be 17 in July and going into the 12th grade next year, and I believe this all happened in the summer of going into 6th or 7th grade, which would have put me at 11 or 12. So for 5, possibly 6, years I have been very lost and falling blind of God. I fell into believing I was transgender, from female to male, to believing I was gay and dating a girl almost a full year. Many, many tragic things followed this initial start of trauma when my parents got a divorce at 7 years old. Now, having all that said... I still feel a strong incomplete pit in my life, this being my relationship with God. I still question my sexuality today. I believe that being abused for all those years led me to believe I was homosexual because beforehand, I never EVER questioned my sexuality. I was your typical "boy-crazy" little girl who would go to their mom after school and say, "Guess what mommy! [Enter name here] talked to me today! I was so nervous!" I can tell you confidently now that I know I am a beautiful, straight female who deserves just as much as everyone else. In my heart, I feel that. However, I hesitate to answer so confidently in person because it takes denying my past conflictions to find my true self deep within me that, yes, I am that person. For a long time I denied this person that I was because of the many times my mother would tell me that I wasn't her daughter, I wasn't what she wanted, and I was a mistake through and through. I believe truly, within my heart, that abuse can cause lifetime problems such as this. Abuse, especially that in childhood, does not just affect your personality, your social life, and your way of coping with life situations. Abuse affects your lifestyle, your beliefs, and all the critical things of yourself. I am stuck. My ex-best friend and I started talking recently. We grew up together and shortly after I went from a true Christian to Atheist, we fell apart from one another. In the past month, we found each other via social media and I have come to find, not to my surprise, that she is still very faithful and connected to God. Even when we were little and very close, I was inspired by her connection with God and trust in Him, despite our different beliefs. She was raised Apostolic Pentecostal. I was raised Baptist. However, now that we have reconnected, I have caught her up with everything that happened to me in the past years that we haven't talked. She amazes me still at her immaculate trust in God. She is now involved in leading many youth groups to teach the Bible to younger kids, as well as attending her own youth group herself. This makes me intrigued in her beliefs since I am currently not under any official belief besides that in which God does indeed exist. My mother is not much in the picture anymore, so I have free reign to explore all sorts of Christianity that I please without fear of being bashed or shunned for doing anything other than Baptism. I have been looking into Apostolic Pentecostal all day, trying to actually understand what the belief is all about compared to Baptism, since that is what I know best, and it makes so much more sense to me compared to what I grew up with. Is there anybody who is an Apostolic Pentecostal that could please help guide me and help me in understanding the beliefs? I am very intrigued by this way of praise and church-going. So please, if you read all of this, which I hope you did because it contributes so much to my reasoning behind this, and you are an Apostolic Pentecostal, please give me information on your beliefs and ways of praising and keeping faith. I am finding God again, and I do not plan on losing Him this time. Not again.
  2. I would not be surprized if this video is not already in here, but I figured it was faster to make a new post, that to find one here. I wanted to be able to make reference to this in another thread, so here it is:
  3. Hello! I have been on a journey of study. I used to be a Christian of the pentacostal denomination. Shortly after I started college, I started to evaluate my faith. I entertained my doubts and studied other religions. My studies, so far, have ended up with me rejecting all religions. My goal in joining this site is to re-evaluate the path I chose. Feel free to ask me questions!
  4. Hi Guys. My name is Ronald and I was raised in the church. I still go and am a strong beleiver. Like you, I struggle of course but i still beleive. I love video and Hip Hop music. I have done various things, parodies and other fun videos. Recently, I completed a video that I was happy to put out. I liked the content and the message. However, it was picked up by an atheist blogger. He and his followers proceeded to bash the video completely and say some harsh things. i have thick skin and I realized that it was probably the message and not the video that they were mocking. Either way, i would love to get your opinion on it. It is below. *Link Removed*
  5. Hi. I decided to join this forum so that I might be able to ask you guys some questions. As the title states, I'm an Atheist, and I'm sorry if my very existence offends you. Glad to be here ^-^ Edit: About the "existence offends you" part, I guess I just had an expectation I would be unwelcome here. Thanks for proving for wrong ^-^, I look forward to the respectful discussions we will have in the future. Edit 2, Nov 10 (for some reason I can't reply to this topic, so I'm just editing this post): I half-expected to be run off this forum for being a nonbeliever, as it seems like only Christians would be allowed here. @OneLight, I have read the Terms of Service. I won't disrespect anyone's beliefs on here, I'm just here for debate, questions, etc. @enoob57, as an agnostic atheist, I do not assert that there is no god. I simply disbelieve in a god. Disbelief = No positive assertion/claim (and that's all there is to atheism, so it's not a religion). My question to you is, can you prove that the Bible is God's word? @Willa "Our God still loves you whether you acknowledge Him or not" Oh boy, I beg to differ if He exists. But that's a debate for another day ^-^. Edit 3 Nov 11 (no, literally, it says "You cannot reply to this topic and doesn't give me any option to quote any posts): to shiloh357: "You are either an atheist or you are an agnostic. You can't be both. Atheists deny the existence of any kind of deity. Agnostics are simply unsure if God exists or not. There is no such thing as an agnostic atheist. If you reject the existence of our God or any other god, then you are by definition an atheist." Just look up "agnostic atheist". It's a thing. I usually just refer to myself as an atheist though, for short. Agnostic atheism is when, due to the lack of evidence for a deity, you don't believe in one. However, you're not making a claim that a god DOES NOT exist. The same can be done with ghosts. I don't know for sure that ghosts do not exist, but due to the lack of evidence for them, I don't believe they do. We can demonstrate why believe the Bible is God's word. The word "prove" is used by some in different ways. Everyone has their own personal standard of proof. Often times, we have atheists who demand proof at a level that cannot be met and then pretend that they have scored a victory, which is completely disingenuous. They demand a standard of proof by which they could not even prove their own existence, but yet demand that as the standard by which the veracity of the Bible must be substantiated. Most of us atheists demand scientific evidence for the existence of a deity. Observable and testable evidence. It's not that high of a standard. However, we have not seen that evidence yet. I have not seen the Bible to be proven to be God's word yet either. It just says that it is in it. That's not proof. As some of us like to say, the Bible is proof of God like a comic book is proof of Spiderman.
  6. An Atheist’s View On Life I will live my life according to these beliefs God does not exist It is just foolish to think That there is a God with a cosmic plan That an all-powerful God brings purpose to the pain and suffering in the world It’s a comforting thought however Is only wishful...thinking People can do as they please without eternal consequences The idea that I am deserving of Hell Because of sin Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power The more you have the happier you will be Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose In a world with no God There is freedom to be who I want to be But with God Everything is fine It is ridiculous to think I am lost and in need of saving Versus A Christian’s View On Life (Now…read from bottom to top to see a different view.) I am lost and in need of saving It is ridiculous to think Everything is fine But with God There is freedom to be who I want to be In a world with no God Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose The more you have the happier you will be Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power Because of sin I am deserving of Hell The idea that People can do as they please without eternal consequences Is only wishful thinking Is a comforting thought, however That an all-powerful God brings purpose to the pain and suffering in the world That there is a God with a cosmic plan It is just foolish to think God does not exist I will live my life according to these beliefs ~ Author Unknown
