  1. Hi, Rony! Thank you for giving me all these articles and things to look at, they were very helpful and I really appreciate it. I'm also very sorry for your loss and I hope you find peace. However, I'm still worried about this whole thing. I'm not saying Jesus didn't exist, I still believe that He really died for our sins. I'm not saying certain prophecies in the Bible are untrue, because my youth pastor have given me a bunch of evidence of prophecies coming true, even things you didn't show me. What I AM saying is that those could just be ways of getting us to trust God. Yes, Jesus is God's only Son and very important to Him and supposedly part of the Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - but God could very well be lying about the Trinity. Jesus could just be a human He created to do all these miraculous things to gain trust, and be raised from the dead to display His power. And the Holy Spirit could just be His influence leading us down His path, whether good or bad. Basically, He could just be Ok I had to just stop in the middle of that cause something about my theory doesn't add up. If He has all the power to manipulate everything about us like our opinion of God and the Bible (which He absolutely does), why isn't He just leading EVERYONE on His path? Like He gives us free will, knowing that we might not accept Him. Like, right now He's allowing ME to be skeptical. I think I'm just having a problem with faith. The answer to my questions are probably held by God, so I could never find them myself. But still, I can't keep my stupid deep-thinking mind from this problem. I can relate it to the simulation theory (in short, the theory that everything in reality is one big simulation like a video game, being controlled by a bigger force, and we're either real beings whose consciousness is being put in this "simulation", or we're just fake characters created by someone) because I'm starting to assume that everything is made up by God (which it kinda is), but like the fake love He might show us. He's God, so even if He didn't love us, at least as much as we're led to believe, He could just create the illusion of love and peace, etc. Maybe even non-believers are fake. It would create the illusion of wrong paths and one right path. Actually, I think this is just an extension of the simulation theory, with God being the higher power, leading us through a simulation of His making. Although that's kinda true, because earth could be thought of as an image of heaven, a "simulation" of heaven, and He's getting us ready for the real simulation. OK I'm starting to see that I'm just incredibly paranoid and I'm proving God's love to myself no matter what I do. I think I just need to think about it more and it'll start to get better. Sorry if that was really unorganized cause I'm basically spewing my thoughts out onto the computer here. It's just a thought, not really a fully fleshed out theory. Anyway thanks for listening to me ramble lol -Willow
  2. Hi I’m not exactly new just haven’t been on here in a long long while. Also if this is the wrong place to put this just tell me I can post it elsewhere. So this has been bugging me for a bit and now I can’t sleep a wink and am thinking of pulling an all nighter just to find answers. I’m having extreme doubts about God. Don’t get me wrong, I am a Christian, I’ve given my whole life and everything to God, and I want to follow Him my whole life and trust in Him. But I think too many conspiracy theories made me question my entire existence. ANYWAY the thing is: what if God is lying or deceiving us? Not the Bible lying, not Him lying about stuff like Him creating the world or His existence. The thing is, He’s God of everything. That I’m sure of. He can do literally whatever He wants, I mean He created the universe and did countless other miracles. He knows about everything there is to know. But since He is all powerful and above everything else in existence, it would be INCREDIBLY easy to lie and lead people in a trap. Specifically lying about Heaven and Hell, Good and Evil, death, His love for us, etc. Just sprinkle in a little truth and miraculous signs you’ve whipped up to build trust, and reassure the people of your “good intentions” by blessing them and doing good things for them, like cheese in a mouse trap, and you’ve got all these people who’ve entrusted their everything to you. People “feeling” Gods love, Satan’s tempting, the truth of the statements, could all be made up, because anything is possible with an all powerful God. And the proof we have of God saying He loves us and He’s telling the truth are from the Bible, written by people who were led by GOD to say those exact words. And I don’t know what His intentions would be, but He’s all knowing, so the reason would probably be beyond us. The more I think about it, the more true it seems. It’s scaring the heck out of me and I need help as soon as possible. I want to trust God with my whole self, but I can’t do that if there’s still doubt in my mind. Sorry if I explained it horribly, hopefully you get the gist. Maybe im just tired.

    A Bbile Study I'm Starting

    Thank you Michi!
  5. Great gosh... a music recital me and my friends are gonna be in is coming up in a few days and my teacher has been VERY vague and out of the blue about it.. and my friend doesn't even want to do it... and I don't feel ready at ALL! I'm sure it will be fine, and despite my nervousness I'm very exited about it... but I might need a bit of prayer to help me through it! -Willow

    (PS if anyone was wondering I'm playing a song on violin and siging a couple songs :)

    Thank you so much! I'll look at those websites. Thanks for the prayer!
  8. I am starting a Bible study where I live because I felt God leading me in that direction. Trouble is, I'm in middle school and this is for youth girls in middle-to-high school so idk if high schoolers will listen to me because I'm young, and I'm very shy and don't know if I will do well leading a bunch of teenagers, but a really awesome senior is helping out and so is my mom so that helps. And I don't know where to get good resources online. My dad (the youth pastor at our church) showed me some good sites for that kind of stuff, but a lot of resources require getting expensive books for every person there and I can't afford that :/. SO I may need a lot of prayer (i didn't know where to post this: here or in prayer requests). If it's not too much trouble, please pray that the Bible study will impact many lives and that God will help me lead the study and give me wisdom to do the right things. And also if anyone knows where to get good resources that would help loads. Well, goodbye for now!
