  1. I want to read the bible but I don't really know where to start. I usually just read psalms and proverbs. Or some random sporadic verses here and there. But if I want to read everything, how do I know where to start. Some say the new testament, but I'm just not sure where.... Please don't judge me for the fact I barely know all of the biblical stories. I've literally only completed Genesis, Exodus, Songs, Psalms, Proverbs, and Revelation. The rest of the stuff was so hard to understand and I get confused very easily so I give up. Sometimes I would literally look up the stories instead of reading them, because reading them is too confusing. I just want help :/ I want to read it all and be familiar, and able to understand. Please give me your input! -xoxo

    where should I post this?

    So on Taylor Connect, the people who write songs post them on in a songbook thread. I was thinking of starting one here, but I wasn't sure which thread area I should introduce it in. I will only be writing the actual lyrics, not singing or anything. So do I put this in the WRITING thread or the MUSIC section? thanks for help!

    Rules in Leviticus

    I was always really confused and quite upset about the rules in Leviticus that seemed to forbid eating certain types of meats, wearing garments made from two diferent materials, et cetera. But then I did a bit of looking around and I found an article that I will put at the bottom of the page. It's about eating pork, but I think it applies to the other rules as well. Has anyone else been confused/worried about having to keep these rules? Do you think the article is right? http://www.apologeticspress.org/apcontent.aspx?category=11&article=2023

    Hi. I have a few questions. I'm sixteen, and I don't want to have kids in the future. Is this a sin? I've read countless articles on the internet, talking about how selfish it is and how people choose not to have kids for their own personal desires. Well I don't want kids because I want to get to the highest point I can in my future career in Law, I also want to do lots of other things, like build a shelter in my country that helps victims of domestic abuse and also child abuse victims because I have been abused in the past by someone in the same house. I want to travel, I want to do so much I like kids, I just really don't want them. I don't think its right calling people selfish for not wanting children either. My wanting to me childfree brings other questions like, because I want no kids, can I still get married? But then would it be sinning if I have intercourse because apparently intercourse is just for having kids. I want to get sterilized too .. I just don't know. Answers are appreciated I want to know the different views on these questions that I have!
  5. Hello everyone! I'm new here, just made this forum to post this. The name is serious on here I take it christianTEENS and I see things 16-18 ;~; , I'm 19 years old and a born again Christian, I'm confused because lately I've been questioning if I'm a Christian or not, or am I even saved? When I became a born again last year in September, my relationship with God was on fire, now it's not. I was always so eager and pumped up for praying, reading the Bible. Now it's like eh.. I know reading the Bible and praying is very important however, I haven't prayed in a while lately. I've made so many mistakes with a guy in my life that I basically pushed him out. I just don't know, I feel dry, I don't feel what I felt when I first became a born again and I don't know if this is okay or not + I'm just not feeling God. I still believe Him, I just don't know, my Christian life is like the Sahara desert. Anyone ever been through something like this?

    How to Pay off Tuition & Pick a Major

    (No boasting intended) I'm going to a Catholic University. It's fairly expensive, but I've received a scholarship. It's a highly respected school with a good pre-med program. I don't want to wait until I become a doctor to start paying off tuition. My parents are willing to pay for the tuition since I'll be studying pre-med, but it's a lot of money and I don't want to stress them out too much. I wanted to start paying tuition early somehow while maintaining a few extracurriculars and a heavy course load. Since I have decided to dedicate the rest of my life to science, I don't want major in Biology or Chemistry. Moreover, almost 90% of students who apply to med school have a BS in Biology or Biochemistry. I'd like advice on which major to go with (keep in mind I can only choose one): Spanish- learning spanish to help with vast population of Spanish speaking people, and go on mission trips. Plus, I wanted to attend med school in Texas because of the low cost. I know down in Texas they have a huge Hispanic population. Computer Science- in case I don't get into med school....( I know it's a lame excuse), but Computer Science is interesting to me. Philosophy- high level thinking, very marketable, very interesting (to me), helps with the new MCAT which going to be based on how one thinks. Plus, should I get a job? Part-time? Full-time? My parents are opposed to me getting a job. They want to me to study and not worry about money, but how can I? They insist on paying, but I don't want them to go into debt considering once I'm a senior in college my brother will be a freshman. On top of that, I wanted to Study Abroad with the Campus Ministry. Any advice on maintaining money, getting a job, managing time, and etc?

    I'm just so lost...

    Ok, so to fully know my situation, I've gotta tell you my life story. I grew up in a pretty stable, upper middle class household. When I was 7, however, my dad lost his job and we moved to a new house. 3 months after that, my parents started the process of divorce. However, it was not the divorce that ruined my life. Rather, it was school bullies that made my life awful. I was teased every day until i got to high school and got a fresh start, but back to the story. Before my parents divorced, my family didn't go to church much. my dad, now agnostic, grew up in a suppressive catholic household and my mom was presbyterian her whole life. After the divorce, I started going to church pretty regularly and started saying I was a christian. However at that time, I believed in the bible like i believed George Washington was our first president. I believed in it, sure; but I had no emotional connection. In the summer of 7th grade that all changed. I went to a summer camp that I had been going to for a long time. Only this time something in me was different. My heart was more open to God and one night, I felt God's presence for the first time. It was amazing and I was crying so much out of happiness that night. But after that encounter, nothing else felt the same. I would have these long dryspells where I never felt God. In that time I got into pornography and vanity. And from the bullying that had happened earlier in my life, I started to emotionally disconnect myself from others. I still had a normal social life and all on the outside; but on the inside, I was empty. Now I just don't know what to do. I feel that sin is what is blocking me but I'm not sure what. I still feel God's presence sometimes but it is not even a fraction of the strength as that encounter. I'm looking for a devotional of some sort or just any advice really that could help. Grace and Peace, Lukas
  8. Alright, so... Every night before I go to sleep, I like to chat with God about my day/thank Him for what He's done for me. What I wanna know is... Is what I am doing actually PRAYING and not talking? I have heard that when you pray, you talk to God... So I am just a tad confused. ^_^u What's the difference?
