I'm a former Marine and married dad living in AL. I'm a self-proclaimed geek for this stuff, can't get enough of it. I'm a pretty faithful Christian but I'm relatively new to the faith so I think I at least have a pretty open mind.

I love the Alien stuff and the conspiracy theory stuff. I've got plenty of my own "black helicopter" theories on things but like I said... wife doesn't want to hear it any more. ROFL.

So, I registered and I'm digging in. Love you long time!

I'm curious as to what the faith is.

Faith in what?

Welcome to ATS!

Your wife will come around one of these days, and then she will be fighting you for ATS access. Just find at least one topic she might be interested in. It should not be that hard given the variety. Enjoy your membership.

Welcome to ATS and Hoorah from a man raised by a former Vietnam era Marine.

This Is My Rifle. This Is My Gun


Look out for Old Mary Jane Rottencrotch here on the boards.

Watch which way the wind blows, remember to duck when incoming fire is heading your way, and to never be the last man out of the foxhole.

Come on by any of my threads as all are welcome but not all are equal unless respect is shown, earned, and reciprocated in like-kind and according to the terms and conditions of ATS and polite verbal jousting.

Semper Fi and Deny Ignorance.

Welcome! So you are a "new" Christian. And I'm an "old"Christian losing the faith. lol. It's all good. You are open minded and I am open minded. For sure, we can find common ground. Yes? Of course we can!

Welcome!
Wait until I tell you about the time I met an an angel, and thought the angel was Jesus Christ! Oh, Man, did I have an awakening!

let's see... here we go with replies.

Freedom or death:
Christian Faith... sorry if I wasn't clear about that.. unless of course you're just asking "what is faith" and in that case it's a whole 'nother discussion.

Manta:
Not likely.. she's more into things like Reality TV... this is all "geek" stuff. Good thing for me she's into geeks


Thanks Sauron

Aresh Troxit:
LOL, I realize that you dont see it very often but there are just as many closed minded non-religious types as there are closed-minded Christians. My experience is that faith in something unprovable doesn't show a measure of your ability to reason.

SpartinKing:
OOH-RAH! Did your dad share that special language all Marines seem to share?

guardian2012:
not sure I want them all on here... they'd just find new ways to point and laugh I think.

kyred:
In my experience Christians that lose faith are usually because of the church and religion. I've found that my faith is best built by putting feet to it... but I dont know you're situation at all.

I think most Christians are open-minded... hell you kind of have to be to believe in God ya know? Unfortunately we're too often the silent majority.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Welcome aboard Marine . Around here though , you're still a maggot till you get your 20 posts in .

What part of Bama you from ? Clay County stock here , but Ok has been home for past 30 years .

Roll Tide !

And while I know what you meant in your post , there is no such thing as a 'former' Marine . Once a Marine , Always a Marine . You can hit that 'edit' button in the top right-hand side of your post to correct that .

welcome aboard. Looking forward to reading your post.

Rule no.1. If your going to publicly post that your a Christian, be ready to defend it. Keep the faith brother.
Rule no.2. Never converse with your wife about what goes on here, she will think your nuts.
Rule no.3.Never debate a atheist with truth, They will automatically go on the attack with personal slander and use unsubstantiated fantasy involving ET and evolution.

Other than that have fun.

Of course he did, although I seldom find myself in company where it's appropriate.

Too many lily-livered civilians and wanton sloppy and undisciplined minds.

The Art of War was taught to me firsthand by a dedicated warrior.

Welcome!

My hubby doesn't want to hear it anymore. I know how you feel.

And I by choice - no longer believe the foundation of Christianity or that religion is anything more then a means of political control.

I do however believe in an Energy Creator.

Now that we got that out of the way - - - I hope our agreeable interests are civil and are disagreeable interests are as well.

I know what you mean, my Faith is indestructible. I was born with it. When the Church began to menace me to follow them and be a good Christian, I thought: " I have nothing to prove to men about my Faith. He knows. And if I get to be menaced when being as faithful as I am, then these men claiming to represent Him are liars, at the very least suspect...
I was not 10 yet, then...

The menace? " IF you do not do your Confirmation of Faith, you won't be able to marry in a church, you won't this and that. " I replied, my Faith is good. Why the menace? " IF you do not, blah blah...", same thing again.
As for the few priests I've met over the years, they seemed more into the "ratings" of their church than in the quality of the followers. " Shh. Sit and listen and shh. "

So in my view, the most important thing of all is your Faith in God. My story with the Church never prevented Him to listen to me, when I pray for others, or give me a much needed answer when in need of one. He never failed me. Hence my indestructible Faith.


I'm truly glad for you to have found Faith and God!
