    Trying to Find my Faith

    Recently, actually last saturday, i attended a praise night by my school's christian club, now to set things straight, I used to go to youth group and stuff but I never was able to accept Christ and on Saturday, something touched me, I don't know how to explain it, my friends call it the "Holy Spirit" or Jesus himself and I've been trying to accept him as my Savior as you call it but sometimes I feel like it's just not working out :( so any of you christians out there, tell me what I should do??? :scratch:

    Talk to your parents or maybe your youth leader about it.

    i would meditate on it too, accepting a faith has to come willingly from within, not out of some sense of moral obligation to others.

    Seeing as how Jesus "touched you" I'd file a lawsuit.

    On a serious note, I'd say go back to see if you really dig it... maybe you'll find your faith!

    As I recall, a plurality of this forum proclaims themselves to be agnostic/atheist, so we probably won't give the best advice.

    In addition, faith is a personal thing, and it really requires self-discovery, meditation and real life discussion (with people of similar faith) in order to create the necessary connections to discover a new religion. Good luck, remember that it is the faith itself, not the religion that is most important. Faith will make you the happiest, the books and the rules are secondary.

    it can be a bit of a process for some people. go talk to the youth pastor/pastor/guy like that and talk to them about it. evaluate your life and see if there may be something that is keeping you from where you need to be spiritually. if there is something interfering then get it out of your life.

    welcome to the family buddy.

    Sorry, I'm rather sober. I only throw curves when I have some alcohol in me.

    Also: It seems to be religion night in the otf. Better than relationship night as its been....I guess...

    Remember that God loves you unconditionally, and that He sacrificed His one and only son for the sins of the world. Confess your sins and claim His forgiveness and turn to God and trust in him.

    You must individually recieve Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, then you can know God personally and experience His love.

    [Jesus said:] Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him."
    -Revelation 3:20

    Recieving Christ involves turning to God from self repentence and trusting Christ to come into our lives. All you have to do is open that door with a simple prayer:
    Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and recieve You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life and guide me to be the kind of person You want me to be.

    Other than that, I'd say to speak with a youth leader at the church...

    Make sacrifices in your life so you can "believe" in a religion that you truly have no faith in. Nice thinking!

    Really, you're the only person who can know how to deal with this. You've probably just grown out of the fairy tail.

    You basically told him that if there's something in his life that makes him not believe he should eliminate it. That's just hiding reality... [/off-topic]

    or I told him "evaluate your life and see if there may be something that is keeping you from where you need to be spiritually", something applicable to any christian. I was generally refering to sin and such.
