I am new to the faith, too, I recommend checking out Watchman Nee.

Welcome, brother or sister.

Try to check in every day with God through prayer and at least one bible chapter. Don't let the connection to the holy spirit be doused.

I was you not so long ago. You would be amazed at how quickly it happens. And for you, I hope it does.

Yup,you can go here or there but you'll still find that it all points back to him.

He wasn't lying when he said that he is the truth the way and the life.

Congratulations on humbling yourself and deciding to not be a fool about it anymore.

Re: I became a Christian
The REAL person behind “The Original Mind” is one of the most advanced Minds I’ve met on this forum. He has a genius (or near genius) IQ, has thoroughly studied different belief systems, is well educated, well traveled, speaks different languages, and is more enlightened than 99% of people on this planet. He is someone I have come to have great respect for.

There is NO WAY he would convert to christianity.

NO.

WAY.

....this OP is a fraud.

 Quoting: Zovalex


Thanks for the compliment. But it's true, I have converted.

Also, I have no idea what convo you're talking about.

Nice to hear some Good News!!!

Why is Christianity hated by so many?

Of all the religions--it's an odd one...

All the other religions work on your pride (ego)---that you earn your place--you name the religion (New Age, Atheism, Muslim faith, and etc.)---they all tell you that you can earn your position---they all work on your PRIDE. Man's weakness--PRIDE

Christianity is the opposite--it says you can't earn your way (Pride)-- but it is given to you by grace (humbleness)--all you have to do is believe. Good works will occur after.

It's tough throwing pride away--I know...very prideful.

I'm now humble enough to know that Jesus paid the price for my sinful nature. I've dropped my pride...

Thank you Jesus..
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39889861


Well said. And that's exactly the contrast that led me to Christ. Everything I had believed and tried fell apart around me. The pride with which I'd filled myself failed and all the promises of my beliefs crashed in fire. I reached out in desperation and was answered. And I continue to be answered every day.

Re: I became a Christian
Heaven is rejoicing!

And brave of you to post here about your faith, right out of the gate. :)

Use what you learn to teach others, and ignore the vitriol that is certain to come your way.

As Jesus notes...They hated Him without cause. How much more will they gate you, His servant?

What an achievement!

cruise
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78414777


What have you achieved today?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76177520


A lot more than accepting an ancient cult as fact. One which its adherents can reach almost no consensus on. Of the three monotheistic cults in existence today, Christianity is the most fractured.
And let's be honest here; if accepting a belief system can be deemed an achievement then the human race is more fucked than I thought.
