  1. I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.
  2. Hello there. I am a born again Christian who couldn't stop loving the world, yet I stil long with all of my being for salvation from my flesh and the carnal needs that control me, I cannot go on in this way but I can't let go and take that leap and give my whole life over into Jesus's hands, I have sinned too many timea
  3. Forgive me in advance if this is not an appropriate place to post this. Hello everybody, my name is Justin. I'm 26 years old. I grew up in a family that I wouldn't really call religious. I remember we attended church only a few times growing up and never practiced any prayer. My father is an athiest and my mother is a believer as of recently after my parents divorced and now attends church regularly but does not take it as seriously as she could. This means I am not baptized. My life thus far has been filled with disappointment and loneliness. I constantly feel like I'm missing a big important piece of my life. I struggle with severe depression and anxiety. I have always tried to think logically. I dont believe something if I dont have proof. I spend a lot of time doubting and wondering why. This in turn has led me down a path of atheism. It has always been hard for me to believe in god when I never had proof. However, lately I have been even questioning this. Are my issues caused because I dont have faith? Are these misfortunes and woes in my life because the devil has had too big of an impact on my life so far? I watched a documentary on YouTube the other day of a man who claims to have passed away and was sent to hell after meeting with god because his whole life he had been an atheist. He then went into great detail of the horrors he expierence in the short time he spent in hell. God gave him a second chance at life and was revived in the hospital. This scared me deeply. I've always been a good person and always tried to do the right thing. I have a great amount of empathy for people and dont like to hurt peoples feelings. But I will still be sent to hell for not building a relationship with god? Life is a test and am I failing so far? I just have so much confusion. I want very badly to build a relationship with god and have faith and turn over a new leaf. But how do I start? Am I just being scared into it because I dont want to go to hell? I feel like the fact that I'm even having these thoughts is enough proof to have faith because I feel like something is missing in my life. Is that god? Or am I being selfish? I just dont know... My question at the end of the day is that if I want to change my thinking habits and the doubt part of my thoughts, Where do I start? How can I rid myself of the devils thoughts that hes been putting in my head my whole life. thoughts like (god is not real, there is no proof, when you die you just die). How can I start this new relationship with god and be forgiven for the doubts I've had.I kind of worry I'll always have doubts. Is that normal? Please, would really like some advice. Thank you all so much and I hope you guys have a great day.
  4. I live in Virginia. My fiancé lives in California. We were planning on getting married and moving to South Carolina. However, recently she has expressed to me how sad she feels about leaving California and she feels it's unfair that she has to move so far away from her family, whereas mine would only be a 6 hour drive away. And she feels it's unfair because we met in California. Here's a short background on us. We met nearly 2 years ago in southern California. I was in the Navy, and she was going to college. She actually helped me strengthen my walk in Christ while we were dating. Everything was going fine. She moved up to Northern California with her sister thus beginning our long distant relationship. I tried to visit every other weekend when I didn't have duty or underway. I decided I was going to stay in California. I found a job that I had lined up for after my Navy contact ended. And I asked her to marry me. She said yes. At that moment our relationship hit struggles. She was feeling disconnected from me. She was having issues with her sister and family and she moved out of her sisters place in with her mom. I was struggling with being away from her and the stress of an upcoming deployment. 4 months after being engaged, she broke up with me a week before my deployment. I was devastated. It added more stress and pain having to leave on deployment. I prayed day in and day out. I knew this was God's will, but I prayed and asked if there was anyway I could fulfill His plan with her in my life. We messaged each other but nothing saying we were getting back together. Just real friendly conversations. I decided to move back to the east coast like I originally intended, and I told her. She said she figured I would. After I had my moved planned (4 months after the breakup), we started talking and messaging more. And I was feeling a lot better. And then I went to see her and we decided to get back together. I told her that I wanted to move to South Carolina, she was hesitant but agreed. I'm currently staying with my mom and I recently got a job interview in South Carolina. Everything is going according to plan. We're even attending pre marital counseling online. Then she says she's been feeling really sad about leaving. I feel there are signs saying that we should go on with our plans. The moment I said I was going to stay in California, things got rough and hard. And even our relationship ended. I decided to move back east and my life got less stressful and I got her back in my life. But she feels it's unfair. She's really sad. She's lived in California her entire life and I believe she feels that no other place can live up to California. We don't see eye to eye on this. I'm praying really hard for God to help me and guide me and show me the path I should take according to His will. Any advice or thoughts on our situation? Pray for us both. Thank you. God bless.
  5. Hello, I'm a 19 year old female and I feel so down and frustrated. I've been a christian since I was 14. I accepted Jesus Christ at one of the worst points in my life. Even though I grew up as a PK (preacher Kid) I go to a christian university, I initially went to study pre-med but the Lord called me out of that major and it was a fight for myself because I kept trying to compromise doing something medical for my family and do something for God when he clearly did not want me in that field. After a whole year of getting closer to God and learning to hear his voice I'm now studying to do christian psychology and hopefully in the future do missionary work in Mexico and Hawaii. The thing is lately I have hit this really low point in my life. I don't have many friends, one at most. I feel super unwanted and just worthless. I know none of this is true and I know Jesus loves me very much but I haven't felt or heard God in what feels like months. I feel like I've hit such a dry season and I really don't know what to do anymore. People are being so mean to me lately and I've tried praying and asking people why and I get no answers. My home life seems to be at its worse and I just don't know what to do. Everything in my life seems to be going backwards from eveyrthing God initially promised me. Any advice or prayers would be nice. Thank you
  6. Hello, This is my first post ever but I could really use some advice and encouragement right now maybe even prayer. I have a hit a pretty rough, dry season in my faith. I really don't know what I'm doing anymore and I feel very confused and lost almost. I know God is there and he is listening but I feel like I can't hear him anymore. I thought I heard God say certain things would happen this summer and when they didn't I got really confused and a bit upset, but I know I'm still in the hands of the creator. I just don't know what to do, I know I and I'm trying to stay in Gods word, in prayer and just have trust and faith in everything but I really don't know what to do. Any help? Thanks
  7. Anyone Got any Doubts about the Bible. Or have had any doubts that have been unresolved? please leave them here. Especially the really hard ones!!! Thanks. :-)
  8. I need help as to what to do with my life. I’m 24 and haven’t done anything with my life. I went to college for fashion and dropped out. Now I live with my mother. I think of joining the Air Force or navy. I owe student loans and have to wait 6 months to go back to college. I was adopted from my mom. I don’t even like living with her. I was taken from her for a reason, because she’s crazy. She pays no attention to me. We don’t even talk. The people I know are just people from church I’ve just recently met and even then those people don’t really want to be my friend because I carry to much baggage. I waited really late to repent. Even though I’m clearly alive right now, I feel like I killed myself inside spiritually a long time ago. I wish I could just kill myself and be put into a new body. I screw my whole life up. By the time I graduate college, I’ll be 28 or 29. Most kids graduate way earlier than that. I just have to deal with so many things I’ve done in my life and I don’t realize things are a mistake till after I do them. It’s hard growing up with no family or people who care about you. I just jumped at things and never did my research.
  9. The famous verse in question reads as follows: I have always believed (because I was always taught) that Hell is waging an ongoing "offensive" against the church, but that it (Hell) will never prevail. But as I've considered it again recently, that doesn't seem to be what it's saying at all. Gates, for instance, especially in the ancient world, were defensive weapons, NOT offensive. And since that is true, does it not make more sense to understand that the church is the one on the offensive and that the "gates of Hell" will not prevail against our forceful advance (or keep the church at bay forever)? There are more things to discuss about the second half of this verse, but I wanted to get your thoughts on this first. What is your understanding of Matthew 16:18b? Are the, "gates of Hell", an offensive weapon aimed at destroying the church, or a defensive weapon used to try to hold the church at bay? Or does it mean something else altogether?? If you wouldn't mind, please explain why you believe what you do? Thanks --David

    My Mom

    I'm confused as well as concerned. Some of you probably know my mom, Kate. She had knee replacement surgery last week. She's changing, and It's not good. She isn't interested in anything at all except for reading and doing her physical therapy. She really likes being on the computer. Not any more. She put me in control of her facebook before she went into the hospital is case something bad happened, in that event, she wanted me to shut it down. I still have control of it. She's gotten very sad. Me, my sister and I her have always said to each other "How's my girl?" Or we all refer to each other as "my girls." She just looks at me, no answer. I asked her if she wanted to come onto the site shortly after she got home. She did, but only for a few minutes because the lower part of her recliner was hurting the back of her knee. I got a body pillow and it works fine for her. Last evening when I was on, I asked her if she wanted to log on and chat. I thought it would cheer her up. She yelled at me, "Back off!" She never talks like that. In this family, we all show respect for each other. I took time off from school to help her, and I'm not leaving until I'm sure she's ok. I don't care how much schooling I have to miss. She's more important. I'm asking for prayers for her, please. I don't understand what's happening. Thank you so much and God Bless all of you. Jacie
  11. My born-again Christian friend and I got into a disagreement about the election results. She is a lifelong Democrat. To me, the two do not go hand-in-hand, and I cannot wrap my mind around it. I really want to know what others think? Am I wrong?
  12. Hello all again, Many of you have been really wonderful in supporting and praying for me and my family, particularly in my previous prayer request mostly about my husband. Today I come looking for prayers with a very heavy heart. I have been having some pregnancy issues and it was just confirmed this morning that I am right in the middle of a miscarriage. I would have been 8 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I feel totally at a loss. I don't know what to think. I don't know how to react. When the trouble started, I did end up going to the ER on Saturday night but they confirmed everything was going ok, and I even got to hear the heartbeat! And now, as of this morning, all of that has changed. I know it is not uncommon, and people keep telling me it isn't my fault, but I have to wonder. I jump to all the questions wondering if this was a punishment? Did I somehow sin in a way to make this happen? And what about the baby?! I JUST heard a heartbeat and now he or she is gone. I HAVE to have faith that the baby is with God now, but it makes all of these questions come up. I start doubting - myself, my faith, my salvation. I guess I just need prayers right now - prayers for the baby, prayers for me. I just pray that I can come to peace and I just want to know that God loves me, even still. I just have a hard time feeling that right now, and seeing how this is part of His plan. This is also happening amidst all the other issues still sort of happening, my husband still isn't working and we are trying to figure all of this out. I was hoping this baby was the blessing and joy in the middle of confusion, but it has ended up adding more confusion. Thank you all for listening and thank you all for prayers.
