Christianity vs. Other Religions

Hi I was wondering what some of you had for insight as far as what makes Christianity the 'right' thing.. coming from a couple different angles here: -I could argue my faith is correct because I have experienced the Holy Spirit, but what about people from other faiths who claim the same? Are they fa...

Re: Please pray to support my faith..

Oh wow! I had forgotten that I posted this! About the Shack, I had read that and that was sorta what messed me up haha. I just had trouble grasping who God was or how things worked.. I dunno. After some time, my girlfriend and I worked together with getting rid of sin and that has helped a lot. One ...

Re: How to have a spiritual experience?

As discussed some above, I think a perfect definition of 'spiritual experience' is one that shapes your mindset. Nevermind having a spiritual encounter with God or the Holy Spirit. He will grant those when you are ready. I recently had several amazing experiences come from God and completely reaffir...

Please pray to support my faith..

Alright, so I won't go into huge detail.. but my faith has hit some rocky road. I still and always will believe in God.. I've just lost touch with him and have some grudges and kept thinking about stuff that made me upset with him. I can't figure out how a relationship is supposed to work with him a...

Re: Lust and sin

"But I don't get it. Is lust just inherently evil? How?" Because it detracts from what could be a much more beautiful situation in a human life. Rather than seeing women and our bodies as objects for pleasure, we can direct our attention on real loving relationships where sexuality has a much more p...

Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hi everyone, my name is Shawn and I have found this a very valuable resource for my faith. Although I would consider myself very strong in God, I had a stumble a while back and for approximately two days (haha) which seemed like eternity, I accepted atheistic ideals as a logical answer for me in lif...

Re: BLEH What to do about something like this?

His latest: "One website is offering $10,000 to anyone who can square the conflicting accounts of the events directly following the resurrection. Of course, it can't be done, because they're completely opposed to one another..." Any articles you know of that explain the problem and have a rebuttal f...

Rebuttal for this?

Hey folks.. a person on facebook posted this.. he's sort of a skeptic christian/agnostic goofy kid.. I was wondering what your thoughts and responses to it were: "If you wanted to be a martyr, I would have nailed you to the cross myself. Your suffering is not for my sins, they're for your own glory....
