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

Non-denominational and I actually just changed "average church" to "a lot of churches". I'm not one of those extremist that puts down all other denominations

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 believe everything that was written in the bible was written because God wanted it to be. I'm not sure what you mean by "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?

Someone else could better tell you than I, but when I read scripts from the bible it seems too relevant to have been written (how long ago?) without an almighty behind it.

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?

I'm always trying to do what I believe God wants of me and my goal is to be the perfect Christian. But...I'm a sex fien, and thats honestly my biggest guilt. That and my insecurities

Quote:

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

Quote:

Against it

Quote:

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

Quote:

Yes

Quote:

Idk

Quote:

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.

Quote:

Idk

Quote:

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

Quote:

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.

I assume you're talking about the evolution that suggest we come from apes? If the bible discounts that, I don't believe in it.
