Which particular denomination of Christianity do you adhere to and what separates it from the 'average church' as you put it?

OK, so let me rephrase- what are the hallmarks of your non-denominational church? Like what are your core beliefs, rituals, etc?

Rituals? You mean things like bread and wine?

I figured you weren't Catholic, so figured you didn't engage in the whole wine and crackers bit. And does that mean you take everything in the bible to be literally true, the unquestionable word of God? If so, what do you base that on exactly?

I mean, say JK Rowling said that the Harry Potter series was a factual History and the infallible word of God... I imagine you would not believe her claims. So what about the writings of whoever the authors of the testaments were makes that same claim believable in your mind? What makes you so sure the bible is the word of God and written the way he/she/it intended it to be?

How devout are you about your Christianity?

Did you stay a virgin until marriage?

Whats your opinion on gay marriage?

Do you tithe 10% of your income to the church?

Do you believe in hell?

Do you believe the world is less than 10,000 years old?

Do you literally believe the bible? Eg. Do you believe God turned Lot's wife into a pillar of salt?

And if so why did God stop doing cool stuff like that?

Do you believe in evolution?

Do you believe in the big bang theory?

Na. I've been engaging in sexual activity since, 6th grade? I don't think I actually ever penetrated until like the 9th grade, though. I'm a recovering mastur bation addict

Against it


No. I didn't have an income two years ago but I did tithe a little of what was given to me

Yes

Idk

I believe everything in the bible is true, yes. I'll also say that I believe that believing 100% is the equivalent of knowing in which I don't.

Idk

I'll assume you mean evolutionism over creationism in which no I don't

No. Then again theirs the possibility that God created the big bang theory. The bible probably discounts that possibility and I just don't know

Thank you for your honest responses. I am an atheist myself, still publicly identify as a christian cos I don't want to offend family.

One follow up question, I'm sure as a Christian you know how God supposedly frowns upon sexual promiscuity, he smited Sodom and Gomorrah. Since you believe in hell, any concern about eternal damnation?

A literal interpretation of the bible does disallow the big bang theory.

Why don't you believe in evolution? You know evolution is pretty much a known fact right?


BTW I am a christian so I am not being hostile at all

I don't want to be offensive but asking others when it seems like you have not read and interpreted the bible your self seems like a disservice. My advice is seek knowledge no matter where it comes from. You can find that in the bible or many other books but if you are unsure of what the bible discounts then that seems like it could be a problem.

The bible is quite clear on this matter, God created adam in his image, and Eve from adam's rib.

Ok cool, man. You don't have to prove your beliefs to others but you should always challenge your self. I know that sounds douchebaggery as well but seek your own knowledge.
