  • I can't stand people who won't debate or defend their ideas. If you are willing to promote something you should be willing to defend it. It really is ironic because most of the people who are belligerent and get offended when you question them most often call others "snowflakes."
    The Timothy quote has always bugged me, "I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet." Christians seem to use it so much. I think it was just written by men to validate their own power of women. I can't believe a just God would put on sex below another, especially with how much abuse prevails in that type of power dynamic.

    Every time I try to go to church I feel like an impostor. I feel like I am faking it. I think that's why I have such a hard time coming back to Christianity. I feel guilty about going to a church because I feel like I have no right to be there...because of all the doubts I have.

    I have to constantly remind myself it's not about me but about Jesus. In the eyes of God Jesus is what God sees when He looks at me. It's not about how good I am but about how good Jesus is. All I can do is ask Him to forgive me everyday and strive, through His strength, to be the person He is making me to be. I fail everyday, at least once, but I know that Jesus will return one day and then all, (continued...)

    I think we often feel out of place because everyone else seems so perfect in church... we feel like we have to measure up to some invisible standard. God accepts you for who you are because He sees you for what you will be in the future, not where you stand right now...
    I keep wondering what faith means to people. Is it a specific feeling ? Or is it an intellectual choice to believe somethings without absolute proof (in the scientific sense of the word)? I have been searching for faith but now I am unsure if I even know what faith is.

    Just as one believes/trusts that their mother loves them unconditionally Faith is an activity of trusting, committing, and relating to the world based on a set of assumptions of how one is related to others and the world.
    James W. Fowler proposes a series of stages of faith-development (or spiritual development) across the human life-span. His stages regard aspects of psychological development in children & adults.

    Faith = Trust and specifically Faith is Trusting God..
    It frustrates me when people tell me what I meant to say. I know what I said, and I know the question I asked. If I have asked a question, it is not some trap. It is simply because I want some answers. I have never felt any presence of God or faith. I wanted to come on here to ask if there was any way beside that people believe in God., but a lot of people here seem to take that as an opportunity to condescend.

    Hi EM, welcome to CC - I hope you stick around for a little while to get a better pulse for the atmosphere, I think you will like it here in the cc... Lots of amazingly honest, and gracious, sometimes outspoken and opinionated - but always loving, caring and giving of advice...
    You might find answers via other means here as well... Try the search function... Be patient - FAITH is key to understanding.
    God Bless
