Camille, I don't hate you more than Hitler. Sometimes I can get super mad at you, but right now I'm not.

Atheism... I'm not sure if it makes me happy, but I'm not sure if God would make me happy either.

And yes, I know I have you peeps to turn to, but it's really not the same as turning to a real friend you know in real life, or something like God.

Default God LOVES you!!

Lily, GOD Absolutely LOVES YOU!! And he wants you to be REALLY happy!! Don't doubt it for ONE second, if you are not already a christian, then you should turn your heart to God RIGHT now!! I can give you examples... My sister had been praying for a phone for long. One day, our neighbor pitched up, and a just gave a phone to her. See? I'm telling the truth!! He loves you so much and he wants to give you life!! He died for you!!! My mom's friend prayed for 12 years, for a horse, and then, she got one, for FREE!!! Isn't that cool? Have you heard about Jesus dying on the cross for you? He really did!! Turn your heart to God, PLEASE!!! You know what, I live in a family of 11, and another on the way! But we have everything we need, and MORE!! God blesses us so much, it's scary. If you can get yourself, and your family to become Christians, then I PROMISE it will be much better, and remember to read your bible a lot!!
Hope this can help.

If he wants God, God will come to him. You don't need to be baptised or even believe in God to go to heaven. You just have to be a good person, and believing in God really helps.

He deserves that because he is love. He is the spirit of love. Nothing can exist without love.

And, just my church's belief, though this is an irregular one, hell isn't a torture chamber. It isn't even anything physical. It's heaven, but seeing it in the wrong way. If you are evil, you go to heaven anyway, and you are stuck for eternity with someone that you hate and that you want to reject, God.

Okay, so, I read this book. Fiction, but, it got me thinking. Is there really a God? Will praying make me... Happy? Will believing in God make my problems seem.. Smaller? Less important?

Things are really hard for me right now, and my family is in chaos, and I'm just little sparks of confused emotion that just seem to make everything worse. My mom, my dad, and my bother don't believe in God, but... I'm not sure about myself.

Is God real?
And... can I trust Him to really love me, not say He does and then turn back on me? That's what I feel my family's doing to me and, I need somebody who really cares about me. Anyone. I don't care who at this point.
That is the pull of religion. That gravitational attraction that relieves your mind of all its tensions; it's easy. it's easy to think that your problems are bigger than they are and that someone in the clouds cares. It's easy to pretend that your life means something, when really you are just another ant on the sidewalk. It's easy.

But the question for YOU is, what do you want? What do you prize more, truth or happiness? If it is happiness, go ahead and believe with your heart, if it is truth, then reason with your brain.

Well, I, myself am a Christian so...yeah. Most of my friends aren't Christians, so I'm kind of used to people saying, tthere's no God. And. OMG I don't believe in the crap but whatever.
I don't want to offend anybody, so don't take it personally ok:
God, won't force you to believe in him, he wants you to find him yourself, or let someone help you, I mean, if he wanted everyone to believe in him and everything, he WOULD believe me he would, but as a Christian, praying to him everyday in the morning does make me feel better about the day ahead. I always trust him as well, (I have experienced it, I mean, I think I have, but I'm sure of it).
So yeah. I can't really force you to believe in him, but if i were you, I'd read a bit of the Bible, YOU DON'T HAVE TO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO.
PLEASE!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, YOU DON'T HAVE TO, but I would, I forgot what part though.
>.<
Yeah, so, if I were you...I would try and pray, and see if it helps.
Oh, and listen to your conscious. That has helped me A LOT. Seriously, it did.
So, you decide. You..........decide.
Haha

So, Lily, I'd just try being a Christian for a while. It might help.

Stop trying to push Christianity on to her, guys. Back off. Seriously, it's incredibly rude and very tacky.

You're young (no offense if that is offensive to you). You still have time to make friends.
Try.

I'm actually agreeing. Yes, I am a Christian, but having 10 trillion people begging her to try it isn't going to help. Here's my two cents (and probably some hypocrisy. :S)

Lily, it's really hard to explain, but there is a God, and he loves you. All the blessings in your life were given to you by a loving, living God, and he wants you to love him back. You don't have to go to a church or anything, you just have to talk to God with a simple prayer. For some people, that prayer is a prayer of confession, confessing that they have sinned and want to be forgiven and wiped clean. For others, it's a realization and a promise to love God & Jesus.

You don't have to tell us that you accepted God, or that you didn't. It's a personal decision. Following God isn't going to make your life all flowers and daises, but it will help you live a better life and have someone to turn to when times get hard.

No matter what you choose, God will love you forever. And that's a promise.

.... In your opinion, of course. Because if not, you're not at all "actually agreeing".

... Just pointing that out....
