OP Read the book of James. And the Gospels. Pray for wisdom, sincerely from the heart.

Just let it go.

If your prayer of salvation was legitimate in any way, you belong to Christ now. You couldn't be in better hands.

Oh, and please...stop asking for spiritual guidance on this crazy ass website.

It's like going to a NAMBLA meeting in search of a babysitter.

Seriously.

Re: Christians...I am a newly saved christian myself...BUT I'M SOO BOOORED...what do you all do in your spare time??
To the christians of GLP...just got saved on tuesday....but on my days off from work i find myslef sooooo booored...

I'm 20, and everything i used to do for for i realize is wrong now, like playing call of duty...i realize that game is straight form hell, so i sold my ps3 on craigslist. Used to do porn also in my spare time when i had absolutely nothing else to do. Obviously not an option now. Used to go out with my friends, but all they wanna do is party, get girls, and smoke weed...all not options now for me. I'm trying to resist because i know the rapture is literally right around the corner, but i have this thing where i constantly need something to keep my attention.


I know i can pray, and read the bible, and i try to repent, daily, but since I'm such a new christian, doing these don't really hold my interest as long as i would like them to. I pray for Jesus to make me want to read the bible more,,, but until that happens what do i do?!?! thnks



I'm literally just sitting here on my couch waiting for the world to end/rapture to happen...no news today except the shooting...and that's already old news, and earth LITERALLY has nothing interesting to offer me.

Find a large church and get involved, that will keep you busy plus as a bonus they have prayer groups and bible study groups and even fun stuff groups.
 Quoting: CeeLite


Don't know if you saw this, I speak from experience, big churches keep you super busy.
 Quoting: CeeLite


a "Big churches" does not mean it is a "Good Church"

And being "busy" or "super busy" does not mean you are doing what is right or needed. You can be so busy doing things for the church, that you forget the reason for being there.



Revelation 3:20-22 NIV

20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. 21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Who is he talking to?
Who ever has ears?
hear what the spirit says to who?

Oh yes I see it there the churches.

Where is he?

Out side knocking on the door.

What door?
Oh the church door.

It is important to remember Jesus Saves, Not the church.

Forgiveness does not automatically mean that you are absolved of all responsibility, nor are you absolved of the result of what you caused.

Ok if you walk past me with cleets and step on my bare foot. It will hurt. I can forgive you that you did it. But just because i have forgiven you does not mean that my foot automatically feels better. does it?

I know what your going through OP.

My joy for netflicks series, movies especially sci fi,(which is funny I watched "Being Human" last night the British version and they quoted the bible.(which they quoted to scare off the vampires...LOL.)

1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.


Is it so wrong to thank the lord for the entertainment or for the secular art that I enjoy?

I know I am supposed to be fearful of God but also a loving God but at the same time I know the path is narrow.

I'm starting to think I'm not going to make it :(

But maybe it's more of a balance..........because you can't even love your girlfriend or wife. Or parents as much as you love God. He is the first.

Do the things you love and always thank God for them,(As Jesus told Pilate everything he has is because of God) but don't do them "MORE" then your love/time/service for God. Like if you have a loved one take them out and your treat for a movie but it must be done with love in control.

Wow....these thoughts just came to me just now. I would love to hear your thoughts on what I wrote OP or other Christians?

Re: Christians...I am a newly saved christian myself...BUT I'M SOO BOOORED...what do you all do in your spare time??
Having been a christian for a VERY VERY VERY long time I suggest you read this before you go any further in your walk..it will save you a LOT of heartache and trouble.

If you DO have the truth in you..you WILL know this is true.

=======================================================

Having a personal relationship with Jesus is all well and good....providing you actually HAVE one for real.

How can most of the ones who claim they have a personal relationship with the author of love be the most hate filled judgmental callous and hellfire torture breathing ones out there?

The hypocrisy is permeated in every church I have ever been to.

Thinking they are good and holy when they by their words and their action only show they are evil and unholy?.

They sit up on a pedastal and proclaim doom and torture and death as the invention of the Author of Love.

How can this be?

Isnt satan the author of doom and torture and death?

Was it not satan who was the first one to use pride which led to hate?

Then why do so many "Christians" and churches preach pride and hate and doom and death to all who dont follow their interpretation of things?

Isnt that satans way of doing things?

Ive seen thousands of so called "Born again spirit filled" christians hating eachother and everyone else with a hate and vehemence that satan would be very proud of.


Its all about threats of torture in a horrifying dungeon that GOD created. Cant God reach people without having to resort to torture as a threat?

Since when did God get into the blackmail business?

Isnt blackmail and torture SATANS domain?

Isnt it satans tactic to DEMAND people worship him on pain of death?

Isnt it satans wish and plan to MARK everyone on the planet and FORCE people to worship him as god ON PAIN OF DEATH?

Didnt Jesus say that the best way to tell good apart from evil is by its fruits or its results?

So how come the "Born again spirit filled" ones who claim to be full of the love of God preach the very SAME doctrine satan preaches,,,which is..worship ME or DIE?

(And the antichrist can only kill you once..it is said God will keep you alive in agony forever which is far worse)

How can God claim the high ground if he uses the SAME and WORSE tactics..threats..and FEAR that satan uses?

Either satan and god are one and the same being..

OR...

Satan has very cunnungly programmed most christians into accepting God has the right to be exactly what satan is.

A terrifying, megolomaniac, worship demanding, torturing, merciless tyrant.

God CANNOT be that.

So what is the answer?

Jesus was right when he warned of sending a strong delusion.

"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and will all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

"And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

Is not what The churches teach and the current doctrine portraying God to be the same or worse than satan is about as deluded as you can get.?

force and fear and control and manipulation are blatant tools of darkness.

So is blackmail.

No one can deny that.

It makes me wonder why it is used so much by christians.

Its taught that good and bad fruit cannot grow on the same tree.

Foul and fresh water cannot flow from the same tap.

So how is LOVE and BLACKMAIL allowed to coexist together in current teachings?

If you have real love dwelling inside you right away you know just what darkness is.

Darkness does not know itself as dark until the light comes on.

Darkness is seen clearly in the bright glare of the light of LOVE.

If you continue in pride and contention and arguments and spite....if you still have a cold hard judgmental attitude towards others who do not agree with you...if you think of God as being a blackmailer and tyrant whos only effective way of gaining followers is to threaten them with torture...sorry to say..but all those things are of DARKNESS and proves beyond doubt..by their fruits..that the light has NOT come on inside.

Many can claim they said a prayer that changed them. But did they change?

Their main desire is to beat others over the head with threats of hell in the same way they feel God beat THEM over the head with threats of hell.

This is NOT love it is FORCE.

This is why NO love is shown BY them because NO love was shown TO them.

You can ONLY give what you have recieved.

If what you give is harsh judgment and you hold an elite attitude of "I am saved and THEY will burn" then you are only repeating the mindset of satan who is all about threats and force and blackmail.

God is LOVE and he who DWELLS in love ABIDES in him..IN LOVE..and IN God there is NO DARKNESS AT ALL.

If your entire christian walk is dedicated to telling others they will burn in hell or that they have to cower and cringe and obey laws and do this or that or GOD will get them...then you are preaching darkness because darkness is in fact what you have recieved within and so its all you can give and show without.

But if you let Jesus reign IN you and His love is REAL to you then you could not even THINK about threatening others nor would you have pride and spite.

Jesus said "I am MEEK and LOWLY of heart..LEARN from me"

So few DO..although they THINK they do but their words and their actions betray the true state of whats within.

If what flows OUT of you is darkness then its darkness that reigns within NOT light or LOVE.

Clean and dirty water cannot flow from the same tap.

You cannot say you LOVE God and HATE others. The two do not mix.

You cannot say you have LOVE within if you show PRIDE and spite without. Its only an indicator that NOTHING has changed within you.

This is the reason so many see christians as evil spite filled pride obsessed contentious hypocrites.

Because MOST of them ARE, as they cannot help but show their TRUE nature to the world. The nature of DARKNESS is evident even to those who still dwell in it and who have never met Jesus.

The world judges christians this way because EVIL knows its own. When something comes along that is MORE evil than the world the world sees this and knowing by NATURE the things of darkness is very quick to point it out.

The world LOATHES hypocrites.

So all christians out there reading this please be aware of what you say and do. ARE you being compassionate and loving? Or are you judging and hating and condemning?

Next time you feel like reacting in anger or spite or saying "YOU will BURN IN HELL for having such a veiw" keep in mind the pharisees acted the same way and we all know what Jesus thought of THEM.

Ponder this.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19774795


Im just trying to put out a fire before it starts.

If I had know this truth when I was new..boy oh boy I would have saved myself a LOT of pain and self condemnation.

I can see you are trying to do the right thing and thats comendable.

But the one thing you MUST be wary of..especially now ehn you are new..is to get all worked up over do's and donts.

You were SAVED by grace..LIVE in grace.

What you do or dont do has NO BEARING on your walk as a christian..Its all about your CHARACTER.

DONT focis on sin or demons..you make GROW what you put your attention on.

feed a fire and the fire grows.

Feed guilt..and THAt grows..and turns into self condemnation.
Then when you start to "Do good" by NOT playing the games ect..PRIDE grows..you start feeling superior to others at how WELL you are doing.

then you sin..you fall..you blow it..then you fall right back into self condemnation.
Over and over this cycle will reeat UNTIL you finally understand it has NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU..but EVERYTHING to do with HIM.

God is NOT INTERESTED in your sin..he is interested ONLY in your growth as a man..your character.

its NOT about here now on earth..its about making you ready for LATER.

Earth is but a boot camp..to for character..and being self absorbed and always moaning about your failures while looking down on others failures..always comparing yourself to other christians will just keep you all bound up in self.

Never buy into the prosperity or rapture doctrines..THEy are all about self.

Just trust God..ACCEPT the fact NOW that he knows EXACTLY what he is doing with you..and you are in GOOD HANDS.

NEVER be quick to judge another..for with the SAME MEASURE you judge another..you also will be judged.

YOU DO reap what you sow..IN THIS LIFE..if you are a christian.

You sow self...self is what you get..you sow love and trust..thats what you will get.

Just be yourself..accept your weaknesses for what they are..the battlings of a dying body to live through what it CANT live through.

When you sin..just admit it..and move ON.

NEVER point out someone elses sins..for you are never anyones judge. Just deal with yourself..love others..and never let anger get control of you.

MOST importantly..ABOVE ALL...FORGIVE..EVERYONE..at ALL TIMES.

NEVER hold a grudge..ive done it..its just not worth it.

If you DO get angry..make sure its with the right motive..ALWAYS to uplift..to instruct..to warn..but NEVR condemn..thats NOT your job.

Remeber..you will recieve back what you dish out.

I learnt this the hardest way possible.

Take the advice of someone who has known the lord for over 40 years...just be..Jesus is your DAD..NOT your judge.

You have passed from darkness to light..REST in it.

As for your sins and failings..AS you just relax..they will fade..slowly..DONT try to force them away..just throw yourself into dads arms..and tell him all about em..HE can fix em..YOU cant.

TRUST HIM..NOT people..NOT pastors..NOT churches..ONLY GOD..all else WILL fail you..EXPECT it..and when you get hurt..just move on...and keep walking with dad..abba.

OK..now...on your way..and take heed of my warnings and instructions.

They will save you MUCH trouble and heartache.

For the sake of argument I will presume that you are not a troll and give a little advice.

First you need to read the Bible. Start with the New Testament in the book of Matthew and proceed to the book of Revelations. If you read 2 chapters per day you can easily finish the New Testament in 4 months.

It may help to get a commentary or two. I would also make a habit of praying daily, trying to work up to an hour a day. An hour a day will literally change your life. God will start doing stuff that will flip your wig, trust me.

After this get involved in some ministry either through your church or better through a para-church ministry. Street evangelism is a pretty radical ministry. You can start out slowly by handing out tracts.

You will find that all the other stuff you were doing is stupid compared to actually having a mission for your life. Plus you will meet some great people and learn some good life skills that will serve you well for the rest of your life, should the Lord tarry.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19774795


It's normal. It takes awhile to learn a new lifestyle. That's why you need to find a great church to attendwith lots a daily activities , meet some new people, people with similar interests.

As you are aware, time is VERY short, so you do need to learn - read your Bible, attend Bible studies - and tell others. Your friends will not want to hear, at first, since this is such a shock to their system about you! We all experience it. Just leave them be, but become a new you, and they will eventually either quit wanting to hang around with you, or they will ask about your changes, and then you can tell them about it, and they'll join you at your new activities.

Christians have fun too, and go to parties, etc., so you can do lots of new, cool stuff, just not waste every spare minute playing video games.

Keep true to your new love (Christ!), and He will set a path for you.

God bless you, OP.

You have to find new friends. You don't have to witness to the old ones at every opportunity. Once each is enough, then politely move into a new circle of friends.

If you hang around "the old crowd" you WILL backslide. Been there; done that. Finally had to relocate myself 150 miles away to get a fresh start with new habits.

Yes, pre-saved I used to think, 'how boring', 'what will I do to entertain myself?'

There's a saying: Quiet pleasures soon grow tiresome to minds worn out by frivolous excitements.

It's absolutely true. I was a bar-hopping party girl from 16 to 30, and couldn't find pleasure in anything quiet.

Totally different after a year or so away from the old crowd with lots of quiet time on my hands.
