1  Fellowship / Testimonies / bloodofthelamb's testimony on: November 10, 2009, 08:29:35 AM
My Grandmother was my first link to Christ. Whenever she came over for lunch or dinner she would say grace. When I was little, I never really understood it. One time, years ago, I went to stay the night at her place. She told me about Jesus and how much He wanted me to accept Him as my Savior. I was told that if one didn't ask Jesus to come into their heart, they wouldn't go to Heaven. I semi-invited Jesus into my heart that day. Over the years, though, I became jaded by the world and brushed Him away. A childhood friend became another link to Christ. She had Adventures in Odyssey books which she let me read. In my teens I truly found Christ again, and read several books about Him. When I was 18, I formally admitted that I was a sinner and that I needed Christ. I said the prayer, and I felt a sort of weight lift off my heart. A feeling of peace came over me. I had become a Child of God. I'm looking for a good church to join now. My grandmother is the one who first inspired me. She passed away over a year ago, and I know she's with God now. I wish I could have thanked her while she was still here. When I came to Christ, I realized the purpose of my life: to serve God and love Him.
2  Fellowship / What are you doing? / Talking to my nephew about God on: September 08, 2009, 07:30:14 AM
A couple of weeks ago, we went to visit my half-sister and her family. She has two children, an eight-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy. I was discussing fire with my nephew and he asked "why aren't we made of glass?" I told him "God doesn't want us to be made of glass." Then it led to a discussion of Jonah and the Whale and how you can't run away from God. I feel good when I talk to someone about God.
3  Prayer / General Discussion / Re: I've committed a terrible sin! Please help! on: August 13, 2009, 11:00:31 PM
Thanks guys! I did it and I feel happy again. The truth is I only said that I didn't believe in Jesus in order to get my mother off my back during our argument. The real reason she got mad was that she's scared. She's scared that I'll join some cult and get brainwashed and drink poisoned cool-aid without question. I admit I'm a bit naive, but I'm not so stupid as to do that. I guess her maternal insticts and her protective love for me just got out of hand. She's afraid that I'll turn into some right-wing religious prude. How am I going to show her that I'm different than those other guys?
4  Prayer / General Discussion / I've committed a terrible sin! Please help! on: August 12, 2009, 11:06:19 PM
My mother and I got into an argument. She went on a rant on how Christians are anti-science and bully people into converting and that the bible is unreliable because it's ancient. In my anger, I said that I didn't believe in Jesus. I regret it 100% and I want to pray for forgiveness. What do I say? How do I tell Jesus that I didn't mean what I said. I've never felt so low.  Cry

update: My mom and I have since apologized to each other and reconciled. All has been forgiven between us.
5  Prayer / Answered Prayer / Spared from bad storm on: June 24, 2009, 10:37:04 AM
11 years ago, when I was 10, my family's house was hit by a straight line wind and partly damaged (luckily we had insurance). Ever since, I get real nervous when a strong storm comes along. I get real scared that a tornado will come. For the past two days, some severe storms came with the potential to produce tornados. I was so afraid. I went to the basement just in case. I took my bible with me and turned to Psalms. I read some chapters from that section and I prayed with all my might that we would be spared the worst of the storms. God answered my prayers. After yesterday's storm, there was a beautiful rainbow, a full arc I might add. I know that it was a sign of God's covenant. I knew He was telling me that I can always count on Him.
6  Fellowship / Just For Women / Re: My sister's getting a divorce on: May 14, 2009, 08:03:34 AM
What I'm even more afraid of is this: my sister's soon-to-be-ex-husband is a Christian, and she wasn't before meeting him. I'm scared that she will fall from Christ after the divorce is final.
7  Fellowship / Just For Women / My sister's getting a divorce on: May 12, 2009, 09:56:20 PM
A couple of hours ago, my sister called and told me she was getting a divorce with her husband of almost three years. They have an almost one-year-old baby boy named David. This is a big shock for me. How can I call on Jesus to comfort me and my sister? I have another sister who's getting married soon, and I'm scared that they'll end up the same way.
8  Fellowship / Just For Women / Re: Was I sent as a punishment? on: April 30, 2009, 03:32:40 PM
You don't know my parents. They're never gonna change their minds. I still pray for them, even though I know it's hopeless.
9  Fellowship / Just For Women / Was I sent as a punishment? on: April 10, 2009, 01:07:44 PM
I have very mild autism, but that still affects my people skills. I feel like I cause my parents a lot of grief and stress because of it. My parents are atheists, see. I feel like I was sent by God as a punishment to them for rejecting Him. I feel so terrible!
10  Fellowship / Just For Women / Re: Tired of being single while everyone else dates on: April 10, 2009, 06:10:29 AM
I know how you feel, sweetie. I'm 21 and I've never gone on a date or even been kissed. I've prayed for a boyfriend but my prayers haven't been answered. I have mild autism, which makes it all the worse. You still have hope. Me, I'm not so sure.
11  Theology / Apologetics / Re: Believing without looking stupid on: April 10, 2009, 05:53:26 AM
Thank you! I never knew the bible could hold the answer to so much! It's been months since I've touched it because of college. May our good Lord bless you.
12  Theology / Apologetics / Believing without looking stupid on: April 09, 2009, 10:06:14 PM
Hi, I'm new here, and I need help. My parents are atheists and my mother has asked me "do you believe in the bible?" I want to say yes, because I do, but I'm afraid that I'll look stupid. She worries that I'll get taken advantage of and get scammed out of my money by false churches and organizations. How do I tell my mother that I do believe in the bible without looking like a fool?  Huh
