With everything that is going on in the world I am becoming more and more frightened. New Agers or scientists are preaching the Marduk theory and that messes with my mind. I am a conservative Protestant Christian and am struggling to maintain my faith. Is there anyone listening to my pleas?

Listen and put faith to your inner self to find true spiritual freedom.

Organized religion lends more questions than answers and they love taking your money!

Look, we are in the end of times and the evil ones are going to do everything they can do, say or write to lead you astray. They will attempt you to seek inner tranquility, or degrade your Christian faith by saying that organized religion is all false. My suggestion is start listening to Christian radio, find a Christian church and talk to it's minister, reverend or priest. And don't just stop at one or two, go to several. Additionally, open up the Bible and start reading Matthew, or Luke, Acts, or Mark. This is the beginning guidance that will persevere.
Other people will say abortion is a women's right, or that "so in so " deserves the death penalty, same sex marriage is OK, or that The Lord Jesus Christ never existed, are liars and only want to corrupt you. I have already begun to pray for you. Stay away from the evil side, don't even bother to read their nefarious comments. And you will be fine. May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you, and with thy spirit.

If these ideas are frighting you. Maybe you should not read them or think about them. Is there something specific about your faith that is bothering you?

Yes, one, no one else really maters.

I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.

Fear is useless, trust God instead. I will pray you stay close to the Lord and find peace.

If something is messing with your mind it is not good for you. Control your thoughts so they do not control you If you are having difficulty with this spend time reading the Bible and praying. The book " Battlefield of the Mind" by Christian author Joyce Meyer may help.

Sounds to me like your human being side wants out of the religious shenanigans.

Where is the Christ if he really is was what he says he is?

He is like the air we breathe... so pervasive that we take it for granted.
The bible is rich, the gospels are amazing, however, I'm not a christian anymore. I can't be. Jesus was not a football club. You're supposed to be like him, not worship an idol that you create.

Loose your faith and find real faith. Find your answers in any place in the universe. That's where you will find god = wherever you seek ... if you have a pinch of faith.

If you have none, what are you complaining about?

Perhaps you just wish you were more agreeable to the pressures of people who hold to you what is right and wrong. The beast does that too, so that say.

It's not shennanigans. And I respectfully requested sincere Christian answers only. Please be civil to that. I know my faith is right for me and I am looking for support. Not discouragement.

I'm not familiar with the Marduk theory - can you explain a bit?

I am not a "religion" Christian - but, I'm pretty sure everything is going to be ok. Actually, I'm positive it will be, but I'm also positive there's no way I can convince you. So, look within - that's where the answers are.

It's easier said than done, I know, but it is possible.

There's no need to fear the ideas of other men, for they are only that—other men.

Emergence of rational faith and change brings fear and trembling to the one that grasps vehemently to his indoctrination.

Myopia. You're looking for someone to tell you what you want to hear, which may or may not be what you need to hear.

Well, have fun with that.

I don't mean to derail your thread, and I know this is somewhat off of topic, but a topic like this begs to be derailed. It's almost like asking for insecure non-believers, to come in here and to poke fun at you. This just simply is not the website for a thread like this. If your seeking christian council from fellow christians, you should be posting this on a christian discussion forum.

If you are going to ask a question like this on an online forum where, regardless of the fact you asked for sincere Christians only, you will find many negative responses. I really wonder why you would ask this question in such a volatile environment. Why invite more of the same trouble to your doorstep?

If you have faith in your God and your Savior then their existence should be enough. Should it not?

I hope you look inside and ask yourself these questions and search for your own answers.

(ps - I am an atheist, but my reply is sincere, take care.)

My question is, do you seriously look or listen to "Christian" advice only ?
Because that's kind of what I understand here. If so, sad, very sad...

Jesus wasn't even a Christian, so technically he couldn't even participate in your thread.

If you are a sincere Christian..why are you frightened about whats going on i the world? are not Christians believers that this life on earth is nothing but a test...? And that the real life is to be had in heaven after we leave our physical bodies on this planet?

The way I was brought up was to accept and understand that being a Christian is primarily about living a "good" life on earth..regardless of rewards in this life or even the next....So again i do not understand a Christian who fears what may come in the future...

So I was kind of brought up more in a Buddhist frame of mind..where the afterlife was not something to aim for...even though your told there is a heaven, I guess people in my family never really took that part seriously..even though they were Christians. the main point was simply to live a decent life because its more practical than being indecent...you get a lot less problems being decent and christian..regardless of heaven..it makes more sense to be a law abiding decent individual..or as close to that as you can be,.

So even if your not a strong believer in Jesus...or God..or heaven...it hardly matters...you get good atheists...good Hindus...good Buddhists...good Jews...etc..and if you believe in heaven or not...all that really matters is that your a good person here and now...not for some reward that may or not exist...but because it makes sense here and now .

as for fearing death,,,I am an agnostic...i don't claim to know god but i also don't even know if there is a God...id not consider myself an atheist, simply because to outright say you know there is no God..is as ignorant as claiming you know for sure there is one...What i do think...is that if there is a God, he, she or it is way beyond my understanding or comprehension...and im OK with that.

i dont fear death...even though am doubtful that there is a heaven or if there is that i would have enough points to get into it...not that ive been a evil person...but hardly a saint...but I cant be my own judge either.

I mean no offence. If this theory is messing with his mind he doesn't need to be dwelling on it. Perhaps it would be better for him if you use a search engine.

If you are new in your faith then conspiracy sites are probably not meant for you to read right now. I agree with the above poster above that your might want to listen to christian radio. The book mentioned above is also good.

Sometimes going through times of doubt can strengthen your faith. You have to pray, read the bible and just hold on. It can be scary, but Jesus promises to never leave or forsake us.
