I Have been raised as Christian, since I was practically born. Went to Christian school in kindergarten - 9th. We studied alot there everyday about
the Bible and so on. I am very knowledgeable of this religion and had been studying for a long time.
I have made this thread for this reason. I was talking to a couple of friends and theirs. We were discussing things in the world and one just kept
trying to question me and someone else repeatedly about what if Satan, and God and blah, blah. His input on everything was that Satan was up to
something. How he wouldn't be able to live without Christ and all that. "We are talking about things that could be answered with rational
thinking." He just starts getting angry after that comment and we asked why. He just kept rambling on, and finally someone really offended him.
Finally he tried to start telling us about the Bible and what to believe and what was true and someone with us started to agree with him. He is
getting really upset, especially when I say I went down that road but I just see to many things that I could question and so on.
This guy takes a swing at me! It really surprised me. I was surprised no one wanted to step in out of the five of us. So I ended up fighting this guy
until he finally said he was hurt. I found that pretty crazy. I am still pissed at this guy right now. I still have bruises and so does he, if this is
what religion does to some people is it really that good for us?
Remember I was raised into it going to Church since a baby, in school I had chapel every Wednesday, and was with a Church going family. He is not the
only persons I have met like this.
I would just like to see why or why not believe, what you guys think. Maybe even what made you believe or didn't.
(My reason was I found to many contradictions and things that didn't add up for my taste, and the bad things it has done to people.)
For an idea of what this guy was like and why, I am so interested in this thread was, because, this guy claimed to have joined Christianity because he
felt as if his life was worthless. And someone else he mentioned joined because his friend died. It makes me wonder...
Thanks for your input.
